Book Description:

If Lorelai Gilmore of Gilmore Girls was dropped into a thriller, it might resemble this appealing novel.” --Kirkus Reviews

Thirty-eight-year-old Nicole Adams has given up on finding love. Instead, the single mother focuses on the things she cherishes most—her sixteen-year-old son Justin, her friends, and her art. When she convinces a prominent Los Angeles museum to feature a piece of her work, a large-scale installation, she thinks her life has finally turned a corner. Then Justin brings a girl, Daniela, home to live with them. Daniela’s angry parents have thrown her out of the house because she’s pregnant with Justin’s child.

​Shattered, Nicole takes Daniela in and, in so doing, is drawn into the inner circle of Daniela’s family—a frightening world of deceit and violence. Nicole struggles to keep life going as normal. Forced to deal with people she doesn’t trust or like, fearful for the future of both her son and the grandchild they’re expecting, Nicole wonders if she can do what she tells Justin to do: always have faith in yourself and do the right thing. ​

What We Do For Love won the Chick Lit category and made finalist for Best Cover Design/Fiction in the 2019 Next Generation Indie Book Awards!

My Review

I liked this book. For what starts out as kind of a sad story does end with a happy ending. Nicole is truly the voice of the story. It is her story. I like that she never really complained about being a single mother. She unlike Daniela's parents did not judge Daniela. This is because she could relate to Daniela and her situation as a young mother.

The book alternates from the present to the past. Each time the past revealed more of Nicole's live as a young mother. Yes, this story had a bit of a somber tone but it also had a happy one filled with new chances, friends, relationships, and love.

Speaking of love; Nicole did find someone. I liked Mike. He and Nicole were good together. Also, Nicole and Daniela were good together as well. They bounded off each other. While, I did like this book; there was something that held me back from fully embracing all of the characters. Still this was a enjoyable read.
