2015 book 119

Bridget Foley's Hugo and Rose
Ever since she was a little girl, Rose has dreamed every night of having adventures on a magical island with a boy named Hugo. Now a stay-at-home mom of three with a busy doctor husband, she's happy with her life, though feels a vague sense of dissatisfaction. And then she thinks she sees a grown-up Hugo in real life, and everything changes. This was immensely readable, if occasionally melodramatic and with an ending I found to be kind of a let-down. It was certainly an interesting book to read on mother's day, since so much of it focuses on motherhood. I dunno, it was fine, but it wasn't quite the story I hoped it would be. B/B+.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book is available now.
