Description : Minus Me
Annie and her devoted but comically incompetent childhood sweetheart Sam are the owners and operators of Annie’s, a gourmet sandwich shop, home to the legendary Paul Bunyan Special Sandwich–their “nutritionally challenged continual source of income and marital harmony and local fame.”
But into their mostly charmed marriage comes the scary medical diagnosis for Annie–and the overwhelming challenge of finding a way to help Sam go on without her. Annie decides to leave Sam step-by-step instructions for a future without her, and considers her own replacement in his heart and their bed.Her best-laid plans grind to a halt with the unexpected appearance of Ursula, Annie’s Manhattan diva of a mother, who brings her own brand of chaos and disruption into their lives.
Minus Me tells the story of Annie and Sam.
Annie receives a grim diagnosis, and so she sets out to make her husband’s life easier after she dies. This includes creating a manual that gives him instructions for the tasks that she normally handles. (And may also push him into falling for her best friend.)
In the process of the writing, she’s taken in by her mother for some state of the art medical care. Although she doesn’t intend to stay long…it almost costs her her marriage.
Sam is a delightful character who is endearing almost to a fault. But that all changes when Annie goes away. He really comes into his own, which is nice to see.
In the end, seeing Annie and Sam’s love story on full display was so great to read. I very much enjoyed this book.
