Room and Board - Book Review

Room and Board by Miriam Parker
Publication: August 16, 2022
Pages: 304 pages
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars ☆☆☆
Sweet Spark: Sometimes a second chance is just the thing someone needs.

Gillian Brodie didn't have the easiest childhood - it was just her and her mom, until she attended a fancy boarding school on scholarship for high school. Then it was just her. 

While it wasn't without struggles, she made it through and ended up as a very successful publicist in New York. But when she did an excellent job planning a defensive strategy to fight metoo accusations against a client, only to find they were wrong, she closed her successful business instead of continuing on with a sullied reputation.

Enter that old boarding school for high school. They reach out to let her know they're looking for a dorm mom to oversee her old home-away-from-home. The job can get her off of everyone's radar, and includes room and board. 

The story was a fun little escape to a different life. Gillian quickly discovers that the job may not be as easy as she expected, but also ends up letting her feel good at her job again. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars and would read more cute books from this author.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for my electronic copy of this book. Receiving the book for free did not influence my review.
