Overall | This is the 2nd book in the series I’ve read so maybe if I had read them in order I’d be more inclined to like this installment but it was meh.
Pros | The characters all seem well-developed by this book in the series
Cons | Not sure I buy the whole drug-addict homelss person who loves children and entertains whem with balloons in between getting high or wasted. I am totally against cheating and found it weird to read about her dating other men while her husband is in town because she left him but didn’t divorce him. Like, make a decision.
