In the book “Three Good Things” by Wendy Francis Ellen, a recent divorcee opens a bake shop to mend her broken heart. She decides to make kringle pastries. Even though she opened this shop her past still haunts her. Her ex still sends emails and letters and showed up uninvited on her doorstep. She tries to forget him and ends up finding a new lover, Henry, who owns a small plant nursey and is a frequent customer of hers. Meanwhile, her younger sister, Lanie is a successful lawyer, married with a baby. Lanie starts feeling her life isn’t as perfect as she imagined. She believes her husband, Rob, is cheating and wants more time with baby Ben as she is constantly working. Both women miss the guidance of their mother, who passed years ago but left them with some of the greatest memories and a very amazing piece of advice: “At the end of every day, you can always think of three good things that happened.” I would rate this book 5 out of 5 because the author ended each chapter on cliff hangers making you want to read more!
