APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Actress Chrishell Stause shares her personal blueprint for a satisfying life in this inspiring memoir. The Selling Sunset star talks intimately about her childhood in Kentucky—when her family was so poor that they lived in an abandoned school—and charts the course that set her up for success. She’s honest about the down times, including losing both parents to cancer and her painful divorce from This Is Us actor Justin Hartley. And she’s just as candid about her dazzling acting and real-estate wins. We couldn’t help but admire the determined approach that Stause takes to every challenge that’s thrown her way. Throughout the audiobook, she tosses in “Construction Tips”: little nuggets of truth that can help anyone. Stause’s narration is bursting with the same heartfelt energy she shows onscreen.
