Too Soon for Adiós by Annette Chavez Macias

Is she ready to open herself up to the truth of what happened—and the promise of what could be?

From author Annette Chavez Macias comes a heartfelt novel about a woman who embarks on an emotional journey when she meets her biological father on the day of her mother’s funeral.

No one expects to meet their father at their mother’s funeral. But for Gabby Medina, that’s exactly what happens. Her dad abandoned her when she was a baby, and now he’s back.

And he wants to give her a house.

Gabby doesn’t want the house—or him. But she could use the money. So Gabby agrees to take it under two conditions: First, she can sell the house whenever she wants. Second, accepting it doesn’t mean she accepts him.

After they strike a deal, Gabby hires a contractor in preparation for a quick sale. But as she gets to know the town and these two new men in her life, she learns more about herself than she ever dared to think possible.

But is she ready to open herself up to the truth of what happened—and the promise of what could be?

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first book I have read by this author, and I would look out for more in the future. It deals with cultural issues far from my own and I really enjoyed the history, the food, and the locale in the story. I did find that, for me, it could have done with being tightened up a bit editorially, as some of the threads did not really seem consistent. I was, however, engaged enough in the story to let such things pass, without too much frustration. The story came from a good place, and so I read it in that mindset.

The idea that a young woman could be saddled with so much debt by her semi-estranged dead mother was not a good one, and how it left Gabby very conflicted was well written. It also gave her the opportunity to take a chance on resolving that by taking up the offer from her previously absent father. The links with food, history, and the importance of family gave the book a chance to shine a light on better parts of her past. and obviously the hero of the story proves to be a man to trust.

A clever take on a love story – one romantic, but also one which heals a damaged past.
