This was the December 2015 pick in my online book club, The Reading Cove.

I wish I could say I enjoyed it, but it just wasn't my cuppa book. I rarely enjoy stories told mostly through flashbacks--it makes the pacing unnecessarily slow and gets annoying when the reader just wants to get on with the story already! Why not just begin at the beginning and stop with the lazy plot device?

Obviously the story opens with her being dead, then drags you back to the beginning of the relationships as they go on the traveling funeral.

The characters were never very engaging to me and I never got pulled into caring to learn about the relationships Annie had with the other women. I think it would've been more interesting for me if I'd gotten to known Annie BEFORE she died...a bit later in the book.

I give this one a C. It was just meh for me.
