I am stronger than I think
This is the theme of the book that we are stronger than we ever think ourselves to be. This story by Carol Wyer brought out that fact in every page of the book.
The main character Chloe suffered from crippling social anxiety, and every chapter showed how she slowly tried to be strong in spite of it. Every day was a struggle. I understood that. I don’t like being in large crowds or talking to numerous people. It scares me, I rarely attend my conferences due to that. So I got her main character Chloe.
It was quite brave when Cloe bought a house at Sunny Meadows Farm as a new start to her life, after her husband’s infidelity. I could understand her need for solitude and peace. Soon she joined the Singleton Club, though under the influence of alcohol, and it brought about a change in her slowly and steadily. I could understand her good and bad days, days when she could be social and some when she could not. I found it quite real as I have days like that.
There were a few niggles, I didn’t like the twerking video of the main character being uploaded on Instagram, I would never ever do that even to get over my fears/shyness. And romance shown did not feel real, there were no sparks. The book felt like a friend zone, but the chapters moved slowly for me. It wasn’t the romantic comedy as the tag-line said.
The book was a great change of pace to my thrillers, it touched my heart in some ways. I could identify with the main character. I may not be brave enough to join such a Club, but it did make me feel not so lonely.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Publisher Canelo, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!
