Title: The Optimist Guide to Letting Go

Author: Amy E. Reichert

Release Date: May 15th 2018


Anyone who has read anything by Amy E. Reichert knows she is a great foodie writer. Totally up my alley. Already one chapter in and I am book hooked. You know the books that hook you sinking you into the plot until you reach the end and say, damn I was BOOK HOOKED! I love those kinds of books.


1. Get through to your daughter. 2. Buy more cheese. 3. Don’t forget to call your mother.

Grilled G’s Gourmet Food Truck is where chef, owner, obsessive list-maker, and recent widow Gina Zoberski finds the order and comfort she needs to struggle through each day, especially when confronted with her critical mother Lorraine and sullen daughter May.

Image-conscious Lorraine always knows best and expects her family to live up to her high expectations, no matter what. May just wants to be left alone to mourn her father in her own way. Gina always aims to please, but finds that her relentlessly sunny disposition annoys both her mother and her daughter, no matter how hard she tries.

But when Lorraine suffers a sudden stroke, Gina stumbles upon a family secret Lorraine’s kept hidden for forty years. In the face of her mother’s failing health and her daughter’s rebellion, this optimist might find that piecing together the truth is the push she needs to let go…

Thank you #netgalley for providing me an ARC The Optimist Guide to Letting Go.
