Messier And More… Real. Beck continues to show the true strength of her storytelling in her sophomore effort in the women’s fiction genre after breaking out from exclusively writing romances. And here, she brings quite likely her most real – and messiest – story to date. Life is full of complications, and while Beck tends to bring some of them out even in her romances, here we get a much more real look at just how messy things can be – and an intergenerational tale of struggling to be yourself even when others tell you not to. One of – if not *the* – Beck’s strongest works to date. Very much recommended.
