Catherine Ryan Hyde's Heaven Adjacent is now available in all formats, including audio from many retailers. Here is the Goodreads link:
And, lucky me, I was given an ARC of this book in return for a fair review. And I am grateful for the opportunity to read and review it. Now I am passing on the ARC to one of you. 
Even at my age I sometimes think that death is something that happens to other people. It’s easy to do. So I sync’d with this book.
Roseanna’s best friend Alice died suddenly. Unexpectedly. Two years before the retirement Alice been looking forward to her whole working life.
That death turns Roseanna’s world upside down and sends her in search of a new life path. One that includes all the things she’d planned to enjoy someday. Peace. Solitude. Well, that part doesn’t work out. The solitude. But I love the characters that invade her life. I love who she becomes. I love her wry humor.
Catherine Ryan Hyde’s style is as cool and clear as a summer morning. I hated having to put the book down even for a second.

Here is the official blurb.
Roseanna Chaldecott spent her life as a high-powered lawyer in Manhattan. But when her best friend and law partner dies suddenly, something snaps. Unsure of her future, Roseanna heads upstate on one tank of gas and with no plans to return.
In the foothills of the Adirondacks, Roseanna discovers the perfect hideout in a ramshackle farm. Its seventy-six acres are rich with possibilities and full of surprises, including a mother and daughter squatting on the property. Although company is the last thing Roseanna wants, she reluctantly lets them stay.
Roseanna and the young girl begin sculpting junk found around the farm into zoo animals, drawing more newcomers—including her estranged son, Lance. He pleads with Roseanna to return to the city, but she’s finally discovered where she belongs. It may not provide the solitude she originally sought, but her heart has found room for much more.
Interested? Enter below for a chance to win the paperback ARC. 
I wish you all a week filled with unexpected wonderfulness.
