Publisher's Summary

From Laura Dave - the author of the "addictive" (Us Weekly), "winning" (Publishers Weekly), and critically acclaimed best seller Eight Hundred Grapes - comes a new novel about the secrets we keep...even from ourselves.

Sunshine Mackenzie truly is living the dream. A lifestyle guru for the modern age, Sunshine is beloved by millions of people who tune in to her YouTube cooking show, and millions more scour her website for recipes, wisdom, and her enticing suggestions for how to curate a perfect life. She boasts a series of New York Times best-selling cookbooks, a devoted architect husband, and a reputation for sincerity and kindness - Sunshine seems to have it all.

But she's hiding who she really is. And when her secret is revealed, her fall from grace is catastrophic. What Sunshine does in the ashes of destruction will save her in more ways than she can imagine.

In our modern world, where celebrity is a careful construct, Laura Dave's compelling, enticing novel explores the devastating effect of the secrets we keep in public...and in private. Hello, Sunshine is a fresh, provocative look at a woman teetering between a scrupulously assembled life and the redemptive power of revealing the truth.

Interesting message

Overall the book is very simply written and easy flowing. The interesting message is that being authentic and truthful to yourself and to others is a true pathway for happiness. In a fake world like this, where people lie and pretend most of time, Sunny’s life experience is something admirable. Let’s be AUTHENTIC ❤️

I downloaded by mistake

I was always on the fence about whether I would return this book. I really could not relate to the main character and I am not sure what made her story worthy of a novel. But I hung in wondering whether there was redemption, failure or something else at the end. No spoilers but I made it through the novel. Some of the most memorable characters liked the heroine the least. If you have a spare credit and want something light, this may fit the bill.

Not sure why

Was it to soap opera for me. But couldn't finish. I don't care about her demise. Maybe bc I know the main character is goingf downhill I didn't want to take the ride.

Good listen!

I enjoyed listening to this, but was disappointed by the ending. It was not predictable, but just not the ending I wanted. It was s great change from my normal psychological thrillers.

Joy Osmanski was really good.

As good as Joy Osmanski was, she could not help the light weight story. The characters we not well fleshed out. Maybe a bit more back story would have helped.

enjoyable book.

I enjoyed following Sunshine through her struggles as her life unravelled. She learned a lot about herself and honesty. The conclusion of the book left room for speculation rather than a neat conclusion which was more satisfying. Narrator did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life.
