I say this is a cute story, not even as hardocre as Colleen Hoover or Jamie MacGuire, which I can respect, since it allows the author to develop the characters and their relationship through words and less through their physical needs thrusting off the page at us. Personally, I think the book is better for it.
The Fable of Us is a story about Clara Abbott a successful and stressed-out twenty-something who has spent the past few years avoiding her snooty, over-bearing family. They messed up her relationship once with her ex-boyfriend, Boone Cavanaugh, ans is beyond nervous about the upcoming week of wedding festivities she will havr to endure. What makes it worse (or better), Boone is the first person she runs into once arriving home. She convinces him to be her plus one to the wedding.
I love the way Williams made the heroine just as much part of the family problem and the solution. Midway through the story, Clara realizes she is just as much at fault in creating the division within her family as they are. Clara, like everyone else who has ever had family drama, feels blameless, and most of the time that just isn't true. Clara learns she is jut as much to blame for the families' issues as her parents and sister. Although, Ford is just as ass. I do wish he would have gotten his in the end, but that again wasn't the point of the story.
Families are messy, involved, complicated, and always worth it. This is a great and fast read, and for $2.99 on Kindle definitely worth the money.
