The Best Days of Our Lives: the big-hearted and uplifting new novel from the bestselling author of Anything Could Happen
About this deal
This is a story about sister Alice finding out about Leni’s last few weeks of her life and she discovers that Alice didn’t know everything about her sister than she thought she did. The last couple of chapters could each be THE happy ending, yet Lucy Diamond granted us one after another chapter just to make sure every member of the McKenzie clan was truly, genuinely okay - missing their sister and daughter every moment in their lives, but full of hope for their future, because they were privileged to had Leni in their lives.

We know that she dies early doors (no spoiler - it’s right there in the synopsis), but there’s not real transformation from her being there to not. I know of her and I’ve seen her books and often been interest in them, but for reasons unknown to me, I have never actually read one. This is a story about grief, love and healing and as such the journey the family goes on is very special and yet also difficult.
The characters were so well written, with each persons individual journey and development always leaving me wanting more. Will, needs a little bit of love in his life and to crack open his false exterior and reveal what is truly haunting him.
Since Leni’s death, Alice has fallen apart and it comes to a climax when she quits her job rather than deal with her anger issues as tentatively suggested by her boss. He is devastated by the loss of Leni but without this occurring I don’t think he would have undergone the transformative journey which I enjoyed following.I was given a copy of this book by NetGalley and I'm very thankful for having had the opportunity to read such a great book. The patchwork family was interesting and I enjoyed following on their journey to accepting not only the fact that one of them is dead, but accepting themselves, just like they are.
