Frankie is her own worst enemy. Her anger has gotten her into trouble enough times that she has finally agreed with her boss (her dad) that she should start anger management classes. But how do you do that when you’re even angry at the instructor?
When Frankie is instructed to make a list of people she should forgive, She ranks herself at the top of the list because she’s angry about something that happened a long time ago. She’s also mad at: her dad, her grouchy neighbor, a woman who bullied her in high school, her high school boyfriend, a guy she went to college with, someone she worked with, a client, an unknown person, and the “bastard who killed my mother”.
When accidents involving the people on her list start piling up, Frankie starts to get nervous. And even worse, she’s starting to make herself a target, showing up at all of the “accident” sites.
While McKinnon’s previous book (Never Coming Home) was a five star read for me, I had trouble reconciling the humor in this book. It made it read like a slightly elevated cozy and I wanted the telling to be a little more serious. That’s just my opinion. There’s plenty to enjoy from the plot to the twists and you might love the dark humor that’s instilled throughout the book!
