      Thanks to Netgalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for an e ARC in exchange for an honest review I am not going to lie to any of you this rating is totally influenced by my emotions Although I like to play my cards close and portray myself as a cynic, Swedish author Sofia Lundberg s Doris squirmed her way into my heart Just how do the Swedish keep doing this to me looking at you, Fredrik Backman The greatest comfort in life comes from freely expressing one s opinion and being m Thanks to Netgalle [...]
