What I Read #33

This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper: A tongue in cheek story about a Jewish family gathered to sit Shiva for their recently deceased husband and father. At times this is hilarious, sometimes serious, but mostly it just made my smile muscles hurt by the time I finished it. Four siblings, their mom, their significant others and offspring all clustered in the same house for seven days. Tempers flare, tears are shed, and in the end, none of them regret the time spent together. This was a fun read. Not my usual mystery, thriller, but fun all the same.
Happy Reading,
