About Maggie’s Place
Years ago, Mary Margaret Sullivan changed her name, boxed up her previous life, moved into the Eagle Gate Apartments, and hid her painful memories in her chicken-wire storage unit in the basement. But secrets have an inconvenient way of surfacing when least expected.
Three weeks before Christmas, an elegant man in a penthouse, a young woman named Carly—homeless and ill with pneumonia—and two calculating thieves invade Maggie’s carefully reconstructed life, and in different ways, each is connected to Maggie’s difficult past. As Maggie and friends nurse Carly back to health, hearts begin to heal with a hope for the future. But all is not as it seems. When faced with the shocking truth, Maggie must rely on her wits, her friends, and her own strength as never before.
This book took just a few chapters for me to get into. Once I did, however, I loved it. There are just so many great things about it.
One of my favorite things about it is the characters. This book has so many quirky, fun, characters. I loved all of them!
The main two characters that the reader gets to know are Maggie and Carly. They are connected, but neither of them realizes it for quite a while in the plot. Maggie is an old woman, living alone in an apartment building. Her life made me a bit sad. Her kids wanted nothing to do with her. And it was obvious that Maggie had a secret.
Carly’s life was sad too. Carly had run away from home. Now she lives in Salt Lake City, in an apartment with a bunch of people. Carly has become a thief as she was trying to learn to survive. But I loved how she grew up along the way, and a lot of that growing up was due to Maggie.
I loved the setting of this one. I lived in Salt Lake City, in the area this one takes place for about a year. All the talk of familiar places in this one made me smile.
If you’re looking for a great book, with great characters, plot and message, don’t hesitate to grab this one!
I was sent a copy of Maggie’s Place as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
