A Million Reasons Why, Jessica Strawser

I like the idea of finding DNA relatives you don’t know you have. I found a cousin I didn’t know I had, and it was pretty exciting. But reading this was a slow climb in, combined with long-winded, go nowhere chapters that didn’t work for me. There were a lot of things that didn’t contribute to the overall story, including Keaton. I also didn’t see any positives in Walt, who isn’t as laid back as the story laid out. He was aggressive and controlling, and I was happy when Caroline finally found that strength we had been hearing about and told him to chill. I think this book will appeal to a lot more people than it did for me. It’s clear I am an outlier in my thoughts on this. Thank you, St. Martin’s, for sending this along.

A Million Reasons Why is available on Amazon for $14.99.

Read this review on Amazon, Goodreads and Bookbub.

About the Book:
When two strangers are linked by a mail-in DNA test, it’s an answered prayer—that is, for one half sister. For the other, it will dismantle everything she knows to be true.

But as they step into the unfamiliar realm of sisterhood, the roles will reverse in ways no one could have foreseen.

Caroline lives a full, happy life—thriving career, three feisty children, enviable marriage, and a close-knit extended family. She couldn’t have scripted it better. Except for one thing:

She’s about to discover her fundamental beliefs about them all are wrong.

Sela lives a life in shades of gray, suffering from irreversible kidney failure. Her marriage crumbled in the wake of her illness. Her beloved mother, always her closest friend, unexpectedly passed away. She refuses to be defined by her grief, but still, she worries what will happen to her two-year-old son if she doesn’t find a donor match in time.

She’s the only one who knows Caroline is her half sister and may also be her best hope for a future. But Sela’s world isn’t as clear-cut as it appears—and one misstep could destroy it all.
