Review - Regretting You by Colleen Hoover

Regretting You
by Colleen Hoover
Genre: Women's Fiction/Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Montlake
Release Date: December 10, 2019

Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.

Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn’t want to follow in her mother’s footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn’t have a spontaneous bone in her body.

With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris—Morgan’s husband, Clara’s father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.

While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she’s been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.

I used to collect snow globes when I was younger.
I liked them because they reminded me of life. How sometimes, it feels like someone is shaking the world around you, and things are flying at you from every direction, but if you wait long enough, everything will start to calm. I liked that feeling of knowing that the storm inside always eventually settles.
Emotional and raw, Colleen Hoover weaves together a heart-felt tale of loss and grief, family bonds, first love, and picking up the pieces when everything around you is falling apart.

With relatable characters, dialogue, and circumstances, it was easy to get caught up in the lives of Morgan and Clara as they begin to settle into their new reality and uncover truths about themselves and others. The mother/daughter relationship was done very well, especially as it dealt with not only the typical teenage drama, but also those moments that were driven by heartache and the need to protect.

There were several subplots happening that added additional depth to the story, especially as everything came together at the end. I enjoyed the dual point of view between Morgan and Clara and although things happen fast at times, the pacing of the story was spot on and I easily finished this book in two days.

This is definitely one to pick up, especially when you need a book with all the feels.

I read this book on Kindle Unlimited.
