Happy Friday everybody!
If you are looking for a good comfort read, look no further! I’ve got the perfect book for you!
The BIG FINISH is like a BIG HUG! An uplifting feel good book that will make you smile. Brooke Fossey’s debut is packed with charm, wit, hope, and heart. Duffy is an 88 year old curmudgeon living in assisted living. Duffy lived hard and played harder, but now all he wants is to stay in his current residence of Centennial. Duffy has felt at home for the first time in his life and has made a true friend in his roommate Carl. When Josie Carl’s 22 year old granddaughter shows up with a black eye and smelling of booze Duffy is worried she might throw his perfect new life into turmoil. As annoyed as Duffy is with the unexpected appearance of Josie he can’t help but have a soft spot for the girl, as he is more then familiar with the demons that she battles. What follows is a fun, touching, sometimes humorous, and sometimes emotional story that will hit you in the heart.
Duffy was a lovable grump who wormed his way into my heart. I loved the friendship between Carl and Him, it was so nice to see such a strong male friendship so late in life. I also loved the flirtation between Duffy and Alice, so sweet. All the characters in this book were so well drawn and most of them were tremendously likable. This was a quiet yet beautiful story of life and love, choices and secrets, and growing old. I enjoyed every minute I spend with these characters in this simple yet profound story.
