#BookReview: Hello, Sunshine by Laura Dave

helo sunshineAbout the Book

Sunshine Mackenzie has it all…until her secrets come to light.

Sunshine Mackenzie is living the dream—she’s a culinary star with millions of fans, a line of #1 bestselling cookbooks, and a devoted husband happy to support her every endeavor.

And then she gets hacked.

When Sunshine’s secrets are revealed, her fall from grace is catastrophic. She loses the husband, her show, the fans, and her apartment. She’s forced to return to the childhood home—and the estranged sister—she’s tried hard to forget. But what Sunshine does amid the ashes of her own destruction may well save her life.

In a world where celebrity is a careful construct, Hello, Sunshine is a compelling, funny, and evocative novel about what it means to live an authentic life in an inauthentic age.

My Review

Oh my, oh my. I have been a big fan of Laura Dave since her debut novel, and her latest offering has been one of my favorite reads of the year. That’s a big statement, and I don’t take that lightly! I loved that we immediately got into the meat of the story. There was no run around, no long back story to prep us for Sunshine’s demise, we were just all in. I could not let go of my Kindle while I was reading Hello, Sunshine, and there is a particular twist that actually made me shout out loud and get my husband to come running into my office to check on me. There is a lot of family dynamic in this book as well that added a lot of depth to the story, and I was hooked from beginning to end. Definitely a must read in my opinion.
