Book Review: Gracie, A Love Story

I just finished reading the book "Gracie, A Love Story" by George Burns.

I think it was a fun book to read and very enjoyable, although it wasn't a favorite of mine. I did LOVE reading how much George Burns loved and admired his wife and how he attributes all his success to her.

I also enjoyed the humor in the book and a couple of times was laughing out loud and had to tell my husband the jokes...

I am definitely going to recommend this book to my Grandmother because I think she would really enjoy it since she grew up with Gracie and George, but for me... I think I was too young to fully enjoy all this book has to offer.
