Cheri Reviews Ten Days in May by Tracey Richardson

Ten Days in May by Tracey Richardson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’m pretty sure this is the first book by Richardson that I’ve read. I know I’ve picked up at least a couple before but, for whatever reason, put them back down. I initially passed over this one when looking at releases available on NetGalley for just this reason. It was a nice surprise to be immediately pulled into the story.

While the story was good and mostly believable, it was Cam’s profession that really drew me in. I had never heard of death doulas before but it makes total sense that such a thing would exist. I hope I have someone like Cam around when my time is near. And the character of Cam seemed damn near perfect – at least current Cam, not Erica-Cam.

Brooke, on the other hand, was a bit of a struggle for me to connect with. And her drastic transformation seemed a bit too drastic for the time spent working on it. But, as my wife loves to remind me, it’s pretend.

The secondary characters definitely add to the reading enjoyment and my heart broke for Landon and Tenley.

All in all, Ten Days in May was an emotional and fulfilling read and I’ll be much less hesitant to pick up a Tracey Richardson book in the future.

Thanks to Bella and NetGalley for the review copy!
