In the summer of 2014, armed with a dream from the night before, she sat at her kitchen table while her boys played on their computers and began the first words of “The Contest.” She’s been writing and drinking large amounts of coffee ever since.
Absolutely delightful…all of the feels and laughs you need in a book.
I am so pleased to have been given the opportunity to review Confessions of a Carpool Captive. This book really had it all. It was very entertaining, quite hilarious, and had tender moments too.
Liz is a loner. She’s satisfied with her life of solitude. Who needs to talk anyway? All of that changes when she is forced into a carpool with Finn. Finn is amazing. He’s funny. He antogonizes Liz in the best way. The dynamic of their relationship is awesome. I loved their back and forth and I loved Finn’s persistence. Liz is so sarcastic and stubborn. Finn, well, he just loves to push her buttons. This makes for a wildly hilarious and just plain great character interaction.
What I really loved about this book is how characters are added and Liz changes. I love each character in the book because they all come together to make this story complete. Confessions of a Carpool Captive really is hilarious. I did cry a few times, too, because the writing is just so heartfelt. This book is just so good. You need to one click this one right away.
