review: here, home, hope by kaira rouda

The premise of Here, Home, Hope is promising. While her two sons are at summer camp, stay at home mom Kelly decides to go back to work. She's a bit jealous of her friends, Charlotte and Kathryn, who both have successful careers. But Kelly soon finds out that her friends' lives are less than perfect. Kathryn actually ends up asking Kelly to look after her daughter who's struggling with anorexia. The plot is
good, but the execution leaves something to be desired. First, there's the constant use of past or present participle. People just don't talk like that. And then there was the now clich├ęd rival SAHM trying to sabotage Kelly. Since Kelly easily sidestepped Rachel's interference, the character really added nothing to the plot. She was just another character with unclear motives.
3/5
