Lindas Book Obsession Reviews “The Goodbye Cafe” by Mariah Stewart, Gallery Books, March 26, 2019
Mariah Stewart, Author of “The Goodbye Cafe” (The Hudson Sisters #3) has written an entertaining, delightful, heartwarming and enjoyable novel. This is the third book in The Hudson Girl Series, and it is my opinion, you can probably read by itself, but would benefit from reading the two books before. The Genres for this Book are Fiction , Women’s Fiction, and Romance. The author describes her characters as complex and complicated. Each of the characters has their own set of problems and worries to work out.
The stipulation from the father’s will is that the three sisters live and work together fixing the Movie Theater. In this book, one of the sister’s Allie has to come to terms what she wants out of her life. She is supposed to go back to California with her lovely teenage daughter when the theater is completed. There is friction with her divorced husband’s girlfriend’s daughter who once was friends with Allie’s daughter.
The theater is close to being finished, and decisions will be made. I appreciate that Mariah Stewart discusses the importance of family, friendship, neighbors, community, love and hope. This is a fun read and I would recommend this for readers who enjoy a romantic novel. I received an ARC for my honest review. I hope that the author will be writing another book in this series.
