Vivian (Vivi) Howe is an author of 13 books, 51 years old, and out on her morning run when a car hits her from behind, killing her. She leave three children, Willa (married to Rip), Carson (a troubled, 21 yr old, smoker, drinker, drug user, and bartender), and Leo (just out of high school and dealing with an unwanted girlfriend and a life-long buddy). She is divorced from her husband JP, the proprietor of the Cone, an ice cream shop on Nantucket. Her 13th book is just about to be released, Golden Girl, based on her senior year in high school in Parma, Ohio, when her boyfriend wrote the Golden Girl song for her. The novel moves through her life and the trials faced by her children, her ex-husband, and her best friend, Samantha Hamilton, which the police chief investigates her hit and run. ( )

Great beach read with romance, intrigue, and humor. ( )

Literally the only Hilderbrand book I've been unable to finish (I've read them all). Cloying, self-reverential and smug. ( )

This was my favorite book of hers. The premise of looking down on your family and friends after death and offering some assistance is quite clever. I found myself thinking about both of my parents and particularly Mom who passed last Spring. Thanks Ms. Hildebrand for giving me the pleasure of remembering both of my parents so fondly. This is more like 4.5 stars. ( )

Once again, Elin Hilderbrand comes out with a must-read beach read. I think this will hit the sweet spot for many readers as a favorite summer read.

Vivian Howe, an accomplished Nantucket novelist, is hit by a car one morning while she’s out for her daily jog. The first person to stop and help is her son’s best friend and he traumatized by the event.

As Vivian dies, an angel named Martha is sent to greet her and educate her on what to expect. Martha tells Vivian she is allowed three nudges. Since Vivian left behind three adult children, she is very relieved about this and considers carefully how she can use these nudges to help her children.

Meanwhile the police chief is investigating the hit and run, but he is not convinced about the identity of the driver, so he continues to investigate until he’s on the right track.

As the story progresses, Vivian thinks back over her past and the mistakes she made and the pivotal moments of her life. One incident in particular has haunted her and with the help of Martha, Vivian can see how things have worked together for good, even though it did not seem so at the time.

As for her children, Vivian watches over them from above and learns that they will band together and each child will find their own way without her presence on earth. Letting go is hard, but the story handled the topic with such a positive and heartfelt vibe.

I loved this and read it while at the beach. Perfect story to read with you toes in the sand!

Many thanks to NetGalley and Little, Brown & Co. for allowing me to read an advance copy and give my honest review. ( )
