In Her BootsIn Her Boots by K.J. Dell'Antonia
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The simplest way to explain this book is that it's like reading a Hallmark movie. You can definitely guess how things are going to progress, and it's also full of many of the tropes that often show up -mother/daughter relationship, returning to a small town to rescue something, reconnecting with a lost love, case of mistaken identity, etc. And like a Hallmark movie, it's not so much about not what you can guess is going to happen, but rather the journey along the way. This one had some interesting detours along the way, particularly when it came to the mother/daughter dynamics, and I liked how the main character's journey to find herself and what she wanted to do/be was really centered throughout. If you need something light to read, this is absolutely going to fit the bill. Thanks to NetGalley for the early look at this July 2022 release.
