    "I recently bought the book "The Widow Next Door: Learning to live again as a young widow and single mom after losing my husband to suicide". This title is pretty depressing, but the content of the book might bring a little hope in the life of the people that experienced such a tragedy. I suggest it to whoever might be interested in this topic."

    "Although this book is set in Delaware and is fiction, I don't feel like it's a good fit for this topic. It's a lesbian romance novel, which deserves it's own genre."

    "I never thought I would see a book with stories set in a geographic place, but here we are. This collection of short stories encapsulates the beach life and experience. Each one is unique and all of them are pretty interesting and worth reading. It's better enjoyed if you are familiar with the area but all of these stories should delight."

    "I don't remember much about this story except that it was written in the late 2010s and set in Deleware. that's how unforgettable the characters were. It's a shame because I really enjoyed this author's other works, and hopefully will enjoy more in the future."
