Things to Do When It's RainingThings to Do When It’s Raining by Marissa Stapley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Sisters were lost in the rainy, windy, lush coulee by themselves reading Things to Do When It’s Raining. It was just Norma and I walking in the coulee finding cover and then sitting under the lush trees with the wonderful rain pouring down on us looking at that list of recommendations for what to do when it is raining. We both really enjoyed the “Things To Do When It’s Raining” recommendations that started off each chapter throughout the book and thought that it really contributed to the theme of the story.

THINGS TO DO WHEN IT’S RAINING by MARISSA STAPLEY is an easy, simple, and fast read that explores families secret pasts and ghosts that don’t stay buried. The characters are flawed and interesting with their own demons, secrets and conflict.

MARISSA STAPLEY delivers a well-written, engaging, and character-driven multi-generational family drama story here that was enjoyable, moving and an entertaining read.

MARISSA STAPLEY does a great job creating a vivid atmosphere here with the descriptions of the St. Lawrence River and really set the tone for us with this story. We could feel the magic, the danger and the mystery to the river that carries a lot of history.

The ending was satisfying and pleasant! Would recommend!

Thank you so much to NetGalley, HARLEQUIN – Graydon House Books (U.S. & Canada), and Marissa Stapley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review.

Norma’s Thoughts:

Brenda and I were once again ‘Lost in a Coulee Reading’ together! It has been a little while for the two of us reading a book together. We have done a lot of group reads together but not just the two of us. I love our group reads but it is always pretty special reading with my sister!

THINGS TO DO WHEN IT’S RAINING by MARISSA STAPLEY is a character-driven story that was an enjoyable, entertaining, and fast read! It’s an interesting, moving, and engaging multi-generational family drama that was well-written with flawed and interesting characters. The ending was satisfying and pleasant! Would recommend!

I also really enjoyed the “Things To Do When It’s Raining” recommendations that started off each chapter throughout the book. I thought that it really contributed to the theme of the story.
