The Year of Second Chances
In a small town near Minnesota’s Twin Cities, Robin is a very young widow at thirty-three. A year after her husband’s death by cancer, she receives a postdated email from him stating that he’s made her a dating app profile. Struggling with grief but willing to try, Robin dives into the murky waters of online dating with guidance from her late husband’s best friend. Between bad dates and a possible match, Robin watches her favorite horror movies at home alone. But when she starts to say yes to life’s invitations again, she makes some beautiful discoveries. Anyone in need of a fresh start is sure to be inspired by this lovely book. I was particularly touched by the references to Robin’s late husband being a gamer, and having that not be portrayed negatively. Recommended by Mary
