Oh, those Sirens. They are always having their noses in each other and anyone else that crosses their paths business. Yet, they have the biggest, most open, and well-meaning hearts ever. In The Season of Silver Linings we find them planning Linnie’s wedding to Daniel and matchmaking Jada and Phillip.
The wedding plan was difficult. I am not sure she meant to be but Linnie wasn’t an easy bride and she was a very busy bride who seemed to not be able to make a decision to save her life but when she finally did make a decision nothing could sway her. I loved seeing Fancy, Phillip’s young daughter, push her boundaries, make things interesting, and put her own twist on being the flower girl. The fashion show of picking out her outfit was amazing and so heartwarming. These ladies dote on her but still manage to keep her in control, most of the time.
The matchmaking of Phillip and Jada was difficult. Phillip is recently widowed after his wife committed suicide leaving him as a single dad to a young, precocious little girl. The wife, Bodi, was a friend of Jada’s. There is so much more to this story but you need to read the story to learn the rest. But this friendship, potential relationship, was fun to watch develop. To see them struggle with the past, move forward towards their future, and find out if they can be more than friends to each other. While I never like to some anyone struggle but I liked that Jada was struggling. She didn’t just jump into a relationship without having her eyes open and understanding that what could happen with her and Phillip would also affect Fancy.
Christine Nolfi has an amazing series of books and The Season of Silver Linings in the perfect continuation of the story. While this is part of a series, the characters will be familiar but each book has a beginning and an ending. There isn’t a cliffhanger, there isn’t a need to know what happens in the other books before I read this one. Each book can be read alone.
