I got Keepsake and the mail and zipped through the first five chapters. I immediately fell in love with the main characters, hoarder Trish, whose life unfolds exactly like one of the reality folks on the real show Hoarders. I also felt extreme compassion for her sister, Mary, who is the complete opposite, with OCD issues. My heart melts for poor little Jack, Trish’s son, who is living in the mess of Trish’s life and I’m excited to see what comes next in this novel by Kristina Riggle. I have featured all of her books on Manic and I’m always excited to see what she has in store next – her writing is so fluid and real and you can’t help but feel for her characters and the real-life experiences they are striving to get through.
You’ll love Keepsake, and if you don’t win it here, be sure to pick it up, along with all of Kris’ other novels – they’re all fabulous – I promise you will love them all!
Blurb:Trish isn’t perfect. She’s divorced, raising two kids — so of course her house isn’t pristine. But she’s got all the important things right and she’s convinced herself she has it all under control. That is, until the day her son gets hurt and Child Protective Services comes calling. It’s at that moment Trish is forced to consider the one thing she’s always hoped wasn’t true: that she’s living out her mother's life as a compulsive hoarder.
The last person Trish ever wanted to turn to for help is her sister Mary — meticulous, perfect Mary whose house is always spotless … and who moved away from their mother to live somewhere else, just like Trish’s oldest child has done now. But now, working together to get Trish’s disaster of a home into livable shape, two very different sisters are about to uncover more than just piles of junk , as years of secrets, resentments, obsessions, and pain are finally brought into the light.
