Today I am reviewing The Unexpected List by Chrissy Anderson.
Blurb: When she was just sixteen, Chrissy Anderson made a life list…
…It’s been abandoned. Now she’s got an ex-husband, a satisfied lover and a thriving new business. She’s rebuilding. Then out of nowhere…a baby. You think you know who the father is? Think again. Follow Chrissy as she deepens her understanding of how to be truthful to herself and those that she loves.
In book TWO of The List Trilogy, Chrissy Anderson is divorced from her husband Kurt and free to pursue a “truly, madly, deeply” relationship with the man of her dreams, Leo. It looks like Chrissy is finally able to have her wedding cake and eat it too, as Leo valiantly works to make all of her dreams come true. But once again, Chrissy’s world is turned upside-down as someone else close to her dies leaving her with an unexpected gift. For a second time, Chrissy is pushed to make a choice between love and obligation.
Not everyone will agree with Chrissy Anderson’s decisions, but all will pause as they follow along on her new journey to ask, “If you lie by omission, is it still a lie?
My Review: I really enjoyed this book about Chrissy’s life and her struggles. I started out with this book instead of the first of the 3 book installment but was able to get enough back story to understand what was going on. I will want to go and read the first one though and will want to pick up the last when it comes out. The editing was a little rough in places, but not enough to throw you out of the story. I loved the conversations she has with her dead friend and the ritual of the beers at graveside. The co-workers nickname is a riot too. Now as to the love triangle I really don’t care for Leo. I know they are suppose to be soul mates and all that but something about him just sets wrong. I actually am cheering for her to get back with the ex in the next book. or at the very least dump Leo and forge on by herself and be strong in that. I would read this series again and would recommend it. It gets a 5 star.
