Morning everyone! Today is book club day, and if you read the book - Secret Sisters by Jayne Ann Krentz - we hope you'll link up with us or comment your thoughts below!
Okay, so when I read the synopsis for this book I thought it would be some sort of mystery / thriller (not normally my cup of tea) with some romance thrown in. I went in with very low expectations because I didn't expect to like it.
But I did! Don't you love when that happens?
Don't get me wrong - this isn't amazing literature. Karly said it right when she said it was the winter version of a beach read. But who cares?! Who doesn't love a good beach read? It was light, interesting, funny and cute. Yes, I said cute.
Seriously though, this book started off a bit bumpy given what happens in the start of the book, but if you're squeamish about it, keep pushing through. It doesn't focus on that. I couldn't have read it if it did.
The characters aren't super developed, some parts of the story fit too nicely, and then other parts are a bit wild like the 'villain' kept changing, each time you thought it was one person, it was another! I don't mind, I read it in one sitting so clearly I enjoyed it.
Verdict: highly recommend this for a beachy type read - when you want something a wee bit better than fluff, but nothing crazy.
Our next book will be:
You Had Me At Hello by Mhairi McFarlane. From what I can gather from the synopsis it's a '10 years later' type story, after 'it all fell apart'. It looks cute and funny, and lets all judge a book by its cover, shall we? Pretty cover. I am 90% sure it doesn't have anything to do with Tom Cruise.
Side note, I've never actually seen that movie.
