Sweet book. Some characters return and new characters are added. Not a memorable book ( )

2.5* for the book itself

Similar in style to Olive Kitteridge, so if you liked that you will probably like this better than I did. The book is really a series of interconnected short stories of the lives of various people connected to a restaurant in the Pacific northwest. I find this manner of storytelling frustrating in that as soon as I get interested in a character, Bauermeister leaves that person. I guess that my reaction to this just confirms my sense that I don't care for the contemporary style of writing... I prefer more closure than this provides (though it was better at that than Olive Kitteridge!). ( )

I enjoyed this book filled with quirky characters that revolve around Lillian’s restaurant. The writing is descriptive and the story is character-driven. I liked this one better than her first book, which had way too many similes for my tastes.

Recommended for something light in between heavier reads.
