***I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my HONEST review.***
I don't want to give away to many details on the book so I will share with you the description from Gallery Books.
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Running in Heels comes “a compassionate, poignant, often humorous story of the complicated relationship between a mother and daughter” (Mariah Stewart, New York Times bestselling author) as they attempt to the rediscover the past before it disappears forever.
Lou Ann Hunter’s mother has always had a passionate nature, which explains why she’s been married five times and spooned enough male patients to be ousted from three elderly care facilities. She also has Alzheimer’s, which is why she wants to spend the rest of her life surrounded by childhood memories at Sutton Hall, her family’s decrepit plantation home in Louisiana.
Lou Ann, a.k.a. Lulu the Love Guru, has built an empire preaching sex, love, and relationship advice to the women of America—mostly by defying the example her mother has set for her. But with her mom suddenly in need of a fulltime caretaker, Lou Ann reluctantly agrees to step out of the spotlight and indulge her mother’s wishes.
Upon her arrival at Sutton Hall, Lou Ann discovers that very little functions as it should—least of all her mother’s mind. And as she adjusts to this new and inevitably temporary dynamic with the help of a local handyman and a live-in nurse, she is forced to confront the reality that neither her nor her mother’s future is going according to plan.
“Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Jane Graves will love Rachel Gibson’s How Lulu Lost Her Mind, an endearing, funny, and heart-tugging story from the first page to the last” (Karen Hawkins, New York Times bestselling author).
First of all I LOVED the cover. I can't even explain to you what exactly it was about it but I just did. Truth be told, I have absolutely been that person who overlooked a book just because the cover was not eye catching. I know....I am ashamed of myself too.
I found the plot to be not only unique but also wildly entertaining. I mean I was hooked from the first page all the way through. If I could have read it all in one sitting I would have but pesky things like getting up early for work or family bonding kept getting in the way 😆. It reminded me of that series Hart of Dixie in all the best possible ways. If you don't know what this show is then take thyself to Netflix post right now!
This book had it all. It had humor, family drama, and everything in between plus a HEA. I give this 5 stars and highly recommend it.
