I read this book in two sittings because I was hooked from the start! The descriptive language helped me to visualize the characters in their surroundings. As the story unfolded and I got to know the characters, I wanted to know more about them. I love when I’m reading a book and I need to know, “what happens next.” That’s how I felt reading this book. It’s funny, romantic, realistic, interesting and relatable. I loved the “Landlady” plot because this exists everywhere and made for some very interesting experiences!. Now I know! I recommend this book. It really is a thoroughly enjoyable read.
I liked this second novel by Eileen Obser so much I read it in one shot. Eileen’s creative narrative of life as a landlady is a tale worth telling for its all ups and downs while struggling with life changing choices. I especially enjoyed her story-telling of the numerous characters who came and went, drove her crazy and those who left, but “stayed” in her heart forever. It’s a touching, honest and hilarious expose of life I could only imagine and I highly recommend traveling with Eileen on her journey. Superb storyline, true-to-life characters and a vivid tour of the unequivocal beauty of the easternmost end of Long Island. It’s fast, fun and memorable. Enjoy!
