#BookReview: Brunch and Other Obligations by Suzanne Nugent

Synopsis: The only thing reclusive bookworm Nora, high-powered attorney Christina, and supermom-in-training Leanne ever had in common was their best friend, Molly. When Molly dies, she leaves mysterious gifts and cryptic notes for each of her grieving best friends, along with one final request: that these three mismatched frenemies have brunch together every month for a year.

Filled with heartwrenching scenes and witty prose, Brunch and Other Obligations explores the intricate dynamics of girlhood acquaintances who are forced to reconnect as women. This upbeat novel reminds readers that there’s hope for getting through the hard times in life―with a lot of patience, humor, and a standing brunch date.


Rating: ★★★★
My Review: This was a sweet story with a lot of humor.  I really enjoyed the characters and the story.  I loved how the author portrayed all of the relationships in this story.  This story will have you laughing one moment and crying the next.  So make sure to have tissues.  

“Poignant, funny, and smart, Brunch and Other Obligations is a must-have for contemporary women's fiction shelves. Readers will want to watch for what Nugent does next.”

Brunch and Other Obligations is women’s fiction at its finest! A tender, witty, heartfelt novel that had me laughing out loud in one chapter and reaching for tissues in the next. With humor, heart, and hope, Nugent reminds us that, once in a lifetime, if we’re very, very lucky, we just might find a friend who knows us better than we know ourselves.”
―Lori Nelson Spielman, New York Times best-selling author of The Life List

“A delightful debut that captures the beauty and complexity of relationships.”
―Amy Blumenfeld, author of The Cast

Brunch and Other Obligations is an engaging, often sweet, and absolutely laugh-out-loud story of how relationships can evolve even among individuals who would like to believe they are vastly different―and lifelong frenemies. Suzanne Nugent’s writing is sharp and masterful, with spot-on dialogue and scenes that jump to life on the page.”
―Sherry Stanfa-Stanley, author of Finding My Badass Self: A Year of Truths and Dares

“... an inspiring and fun read for the beach.”
