BWW Review: HELLO, SUNSHINE by Laura Dave

"How easy would it be to slip into this new life? How nice in so many ways. A clean slate, a new me.But that was how I had ended up here.And I wasn't going to do that again."

~Sunshine, HELLO, SUNSHINE

Ripped from the headlines, HELLO, SUNSHINE by Laura Dave is a fast, breezy summer read that explores familial relationships and the strength within oneself to bounce back after life throws you a curveball. Dave's previous novel, EIGHT HUNDRED GRAPES, was called the "Best Book of Summer 2015" by publications such as Glamour, Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Marie Claire, and US Weekly and fans have been eager for a new book from her these last two years.

Sunshine MacKenzie had it all--until she lost everything. She started off cooking for her husband on YouTube and became a viral success. Now, she has millions of people watching her show, is a New York Times Best Selling Author of several cookbooks, and has a cushy deal with the Food Network that's going to make her a household name when her show hits the air. But everything she's spent years building is a lie. Sunshine is a creation who can barely cook, let alone create all her stunning recipes. But somebody knows this closely guarded secret that only a couple of people have access to. Someone who hates Sunshine. Someone who wants to see Sunshine fall from grace.

When Sunshine is outed publicly on social media, she loses everything. Her husband. Her upcoming book release. Her TV show. Her career. Her LIFE. She returns to her hometown in disgrace. Even her estranged sister doesn't want Sunshine around. How can Sunshine pick up the pieces of her life when she can't catch a break? Where does she go next? What does the future hold for her?
