Thank you to Lori at Get Red PR for gifting me “I Like My Life” by Abby Fabiaschi in exchange for an honest review. This was 4/5 ⭐️!
This book was such a pleasant surprise. In this debut novel by Abby Fabiaschi the theme of fate versus free will is explored as Maddy realizes she is a ghost with unfinished business. She appears to have been the perfect wife and mother who was loved by many. Her husband and teenage daughter are devastated by her sudden death. They question their past actions and attempt to transform their lives for the better. At times poignant and bittersweet, this book was heart wrenching without being dismal. In fact, there was a fair amount of humor to lighten this otherwise tragic tale. In the end I found it was really a coming of age story in which familial love was central. I literally could not put this book down. I look forward to reading anything by this author.
