Book Review: “First Comes Love”

   First Comes Love
   Emily Giffin

Fifteen years after the unexpected death of their brother Daniel, Josie and Meredith’s lives are not what they envisioned. Josie parties too much and desperately wants a child, but isn’t in a committed relationship, while Meredith is unhappily married to Daniel’s best friend.  Will the sisters continue to live in discontent or will they repair their lives and find happiness?

Often times, a tragedy drastically changes the life courses of loved ones, as is brilliantly shown in First Comes Love. Giffin’s characters are very human-sometimes mean-spirited and petty, but ultimately I found myself rooting for them. Despite the heavy theme, this novel is funny and touching and is a great summer read!
