A few years ago a friend and I were watching a movie when I realized that certain plot points did not make sense and I voiced my observations. She stopped the movie to ask if I was enjoying it, I was. And she asked it I wanted to stop watching, I did not. She then introduced me to the suspend button. You “smash it” anytime you want to suspend reality in a book, movie or TV show. There is a time and place for low stress, simple entertainment and the suspend button makes it possible.
The Peach Keeper is a light beach or front porch read. I would call it Southern Chick Lit with a rich girl struggling to meet her mother’s expectations, a gala event, family history, a defiant female loner from the wrong side of the tracks and some romance for all. I enjoyed the book. It is a stressful time and escapism through a nice, easy comfort read hit the spot.
