    I received a free e-copy of Me for You by Lolly Winston from Goodreads for my honest review. A very emotional book of love, loss and grief. Rudy and Bee are happy married and in love. But, one morning, Rudy wakes up and finds his wife, Bee dead. He is shocked and can't believe it. ...

    The story could have easily been rated a four and still may be. I received this as an ARC on this site. I have read many ARCs and understand that they are to be nowhere near perfect and that the full, complete story is not printed yet. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with...

    I received a free copy of this novel from Booksparks in my role as a Winter Reading Challenge ambassador. All opinions are my own. Me for You was in the 2.5 star range for me. There was a lot of potential in the story and I loved the concept, but something about the execution ju...

    Thank you to Touchstone and NetGalley for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved the premise of this book but this just didn't work for me. I thought that Rudy's grief over the loss of his wife was relatable and accurate and I enjoyed reading about the initia...

    Thanks to Gallery Books for the Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I enjoyed it, but I didn't love it. I didn't find it as engrossing as her first two novels. The patients are not that much different from you or me. They are people who stepped off a curb and got run over by life."...

    This was an ok book for me. Not for the topic of grief but more for the clumsiness of the book. Its flow was choppy at times and the last half of the book felt long and disjointed. I did appreciate the awareness it brings to mental health, though, as one grieves or goes through a diffi...

    Me For You wasn't what I hoped it would be. It's really sad and depressing, and I just can't read sad stuff anymore. I recommend if you're okay with bleak. Unfortunately, this story was not for me. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review. ...

    I first read Lolly Winston wayyyyy back when. At the time I didn't write reviews, I only rated books. Both Good Grief and Happiness Sold Separately garnered a "Favorites" from me and I wouldn't change a thing. I was ecstatic to see she had a new release and am happy to say that I reall...

    https://oneblogtwobroads.blog/2019/03... Lolly Winston definitely knows how to take a sad thing like grief and make it into a beautiful story. As she did in Good Grief (I highly recommend it), she has done again in this lovely book. Rudy wakes up one morning at the age of 54 to h...

    I have been waiting for a new book from Lolly Winston for years, ever since I read ?Good Grief.? When I saw a chance to read an advanced copy of this book, I swooned with delight. Unfortunately, as many reviews have noted, ?Me For You,? is like the less desired sister of ?Goo...

    I wasn't sure at first when I heard the premise if this book would be for me. It is a little different genre than my usual books and the characters are all at a different stage in their lives. I was so happily surprised by how beautiful and touching this book is. I fell absolutely in l...

    There was something very bland about this novel. Our main character Rudy, wakes up one morning to discover that his wife is dead in bed next to him. He doesn't realize this at first and talks to her and gives her a little physical contact, which is odd. Rudy must deal with his grief an...

    The story could have easily been rated a four and still may be. I received this as an ARC on this site. I have read many ARCs and understand that they are to be nowhere near perfect and that the full, complete story is not printed yet. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with...

    I received a free copy of this novel from Booksparks in my role as a Winter Reading Challenge ambassador. All opinions are my own. Me for You was in the 2.5 star range for me. There was a lot of potential in the story and I loved the concept, but something about the execution ju...

    Thank you to Touchstone and NetGalley for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved the premise of this book but this just didn't work for me. I thought that Rudy's grief over the loss of his wife was relatable and accurate and I enjoyed reading about the initia...

    Thanks to Gallery Books for the Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I enjoyed it, but I didn't love it. I didn't find it as engrossing as her first two novels. The patients are not that much different from you or me. They are people who stepped off a curb and got run over by life."...

    This was an ok book for me. Not for the topic of grief but more for the clumsiness of the book. Its flow was choppy at times and the last half of the book felt long and disjointed. I did appreciate the awareness it brings to mental health, though, as one grieves or goes through a diffi...

    The last thing Rudy expected was to wake up one Saturday morning, a widow at fifty-four years old. Now, ten months after the untimely death of his beloved wife, he?s still not sure how to move on from the defining tragedy of his life?but his new job is helping. After being downsize...

    Moving on takes courage, losing the one you love takes tenacity, finding yourself in the chaos takes heart. This is the story of Rudy who was widowed and is quickly trying to replace the broken pieces of his heart and soul. Finding his passion, uncovering his truths, seeking companio...

    Me For You wasn't what I hoped it would be. It's really sad and depressing, and I just can't read sad stuff anymore. I recommend if you're okay with bleak. Unfortunately, this story was not for me. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review. ...

    I wasn't sure at first when I heard the premise if this book would be for me. It is a little different genre than my usual books and the characters are all at a different stage in their lives. I was so happily surprised by how beautiful and touching this book is. I fell absolutely in l...

    Have you ever found an author whose voice and style resonated and stuck with you? For me, Lolly Winston is one of those authors. Thirteen-ish years ago I read her first two books, Good Grief and Happiness Sold Separately and loved them. I kept looking for a new book from her and was be...

    This one was just okay. Rudy woke one morning to find his wife, Bree, had died in the night beside him. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone. The first part of the book tried to make this into a murder mystery but then seemed to just let it dissipate somewhere. Rudy falls into a depression...

    This book should have been nothing but a depressing sad downer of a book--but it wasn't! It was really quite lovely and wonderful. Yes, it is sad because the book opens with Rudy's beloved wife unexpectedly dying and then you see his grieving process. But it was lovely because, well, i...

    This started out well and I enjoyed he first part but then it became an infomercial for mental heath and institutional care. There was way too much sadness before we reached a glossed-over happy ending. There was more depth to the gloom than to anything uplifting here. Between the deat...

    There was something very bland about this novel. Our main character Rudy, wakes up one morning to discover that his wife is dead in bed next to him. He doesn't realize this at first and talks to her and gives her a little physical contact, which is odd. Rudy must deal with his grief an...

    Lolly Winston has long been a favorite of mine and I was glad to see her releasing a new novel. This book covered grief and how it impacts us and those around us differently. A man has lost his spouse and is befriended by a woman who has left her husband. The story follows them comi...

    I enjoyed the characters in this book. You could understand exactly where their feeling were developing. This book makes understanding depression easier. ...

    DNF - read about half and it just couldn't keep my attention. ...

    I have liked Lolly Winston books before, especially Good Grief. In fact, I loved that book but this one seems to want to revisit similar emotions with different characters and a bit of an unbelievable plot. Too many coincidences and "surprises". It does try to visit grief and moving on...

    Oh how I truly wanted to love this book like I did Good Grief, but unfortunately it just fell completely flat - a pale imitation with a similar plot line. The characters did not resonate and the plot did not hold together. There were random chapters focusing on the deceased wife which ...

    I received a free e-copy of Me for You by Lolly Winston from Goodreads for my honest review. A very emotional book of love, loss and grief. Rudy and Bee are happy married and in love. But, one morning, Rudy wakes up and finds his wife, Bee dead. He is shocked and can't believe it. ...

    The story could have easily been rated a four and still may be. I received this as an ARC on this site. I have read many ARCs and understand that they are to be nowhere near perfect and that the full, complete story is not printed yet. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with...

    I wasn't sure at first when I heard the premise if this book would be for me. It is a little different genre than my usual books and the characters are all at a different stage in their lives. I was so happily surprised by how beautiful and touching this book is. I fell absolutely in l...

    Have you ever found an author whose voice and style resonated and stuck with you? For me, Lolly Winston is one of those authors. Thirteen-ish years ago I read her first two books, Good Grief and Happiness Sold Separately and loved them. I kept looking for a new book from her and was be...

    This one was just okay. Rudy woke one morning to find his wife, Bree, had died in the night beside him. I wouldn't wish that upon anyone. The first part of the book tried to make this into a murder mystery but then seemed to just let it dissipate somewhere. Rudy falls into a depression...

    Thank you to Book Sparks for sending me this ARC in exchange for an honest review. Me For You is about a widower named Rudy who is in his mid-fifties when his wife suddenly passes away. Up until the one year anniversary of his wife's passing, he is just going through the motions and...

    This book should have been nothing but a depressing sad downer of a book--but it wasn't! It was really quite lovely and wonderful. Yes, it is sad because the book opens with Rudy's beloved wife unexpectedly dying and then you see his grieving process. But it was lovely because, well, i...

    This started out well and I enjoyed he first part but then it became an infomercial for mental heath and institutional care. There was way too much sadness before we reached a glossed-over happy ending. There was more depth to the gloom than to anything uplifting here. Between the deat...

    There was something very bland about this novel. Our main character Rudy, wakes up one morning to discover that his wife is dead in bed next to him. He doesn't realize this at first and talks to her and gives her a little physical contact, which is odd. Rudy must deal with his grief an...

    Lolly Winston has long been a favorite of mine and I was glad to see her releasing a new novel. This book covered grief and how it impacts us and those around us differently. A man has lost his spouse and is befriended by a woman who has left her husband. The story follows them comi...

    I enjoyed the characters in this book. You could understand exactly where their feeling were developing. This book makes understanding depression easier. ...

    DNF - read about half and it just couldn't keep my attention. ...

    I have liked Lolly Winston books before, especially Good Grief. In fact, I loved that book but this one seems to want to revisit similar emotions with different characters and a bit of an unbelievable plot. Too many coincidences and "surprises". It does try to visit grief and moving on...

    Oh how I truly wanted to love this book like I did Good Grief, but unfortunately it just fell completely flat - a pale imitation with a similar plot line. The characters did not resonate and the plot did not hold together. There were random chapters focusing on the deceased wife which ...

    Rudy?s wife dies unexpectedly, plunging Rudy into grief and depression. As a part-time piano player in Nordstrom, Rudy befriends Sasha, a salesperson who has also suffered an unimaginable tragedy. As Sasha and Rudy begin a relationship, Rudy falls victim to his deep depression. An in...

    I received a free e-copy of Me for You by Lolly Winston from Goodreads for my honest review. A very emotional book of love, loss and grief. Rudy and Bee are happy married and in love. But, one morning, Rudy wakes up and finds his wife, Bee dead. He is shocked and can't believe it. ...

    The story could have easily been rated a four and still may be. I received this as an ARC on this site. I have read many ARCs and understand that they are to be nowhere near perfect and that the full, complete story is not printed yet. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with...

    I received a free copy of this novel from Booksparks in my role as a Winter Reading Challenge ambassador. All opinions are my own. Me for You was in the 2.5 star range for me. There was a lot of potential in the story and I loved the concept, but something about the execution ju...

    This was an ok book for me. Not for the topic of grief but more for the clumsiness of the book. Its flow was choppy at times and the last half of the book felt long and disjointed. I did appreciate the awareness it brings to mental health, though, as one grieves or goes through a diffi...

    The last thing Rudy expected was to wake up one Saturday morning, a widow at fifty-four years old. Now, ten months after the untimely death of his beloved wife, he?s still not sure how to move on from the defining tragedy of his life?but his new job is helping. After being downsize...

    The story could have easily been rated a four and still may be. I received this as an ARC on this site. I have read many ARCs and understand that they are to be nowhere near perfect and that the full, complete story is not printed yet. That being said, I was extremely disappointed with...

    I received a free copy of this novel from Booksparks in my role as a Winter Reading Challenge ambassador. All opinions are my own. Me for You was in the 2.5 star range for me. There was a lot of potential in the story and I loved the concept, but something about the execution ju...

    Thank you to Touchstone and NetGalley for an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved the premise of this book but this just didn't work for me. I thought that Rudy's grief over the loss of his wife was relatable and accurate and I enjoyed reading about the initia...

    *Review is of an advanced copy Lolly Winston's Good Grief was one of those books that took me by surprise. It was an unexpected pleasure; sad, funny, relatable. Therefore, I squealed in delight upon spying a third novel from the talented author. I didn't even bother to read the back...

    Me For You wasn't what I hoped it would be. It's really sad and depressing, and I just can't read sad stuff anymore. I recommend if you're okay with bleak. Unfortunately, this story was not for me. Thanks to NetGalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review. ...
