    Predictable novel!

    The Charm Bracelet by Viola Shipman is set in Scoops, Michigan. Lolly Lindsey has the beginning of dementia. She knows that this will be her last chance to tell her stories and family history to her family. Arden, Lolly’s daughter, gets a call about her mother from a neighbor. Arden and her daughter, Laurel hurry back to Scoops to check on Lolly. This is Lolly’s chance to spend time with her busy daughter and granddaughter. Lolly tells her story via the charms on her charm bracelet. Each charm represents a special event or time in her life. Each charm is a story and has a life lesson. Lolly wants to pass along to Arden and Lindsey about living life to its fullest and enjoying each day. Can Lolly change Arden’s and Lindsey’s perspective (and what is most important) on life? Come join Lolly, Arden, and Laurel on a journey towards a better life. The Charm Bracelet was sweet story. I give The Charm Bracelet 2.5 out of 5 stars. It was passable, but not riveting (engrossing or engaging). It is a story that has been told before and has a predictable outcome. The writing is satisfactory, and the characters (for the most part) are relatable (especially Arden). But there is something off (did not feel right or seem right about the female characters). I did not discover it until after I finished the book (I wanted to see what other people were saying about the book). The author is not a woman and it explains so much. I finished The Charm Bracelet, but I did a lot of skimming (speed reading) to finish it. If you are looking for a light summer read, then you will enjoy The Charm Bracelet. I received a complimentary copy of The Charm Bracelet from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the book.
