This was one of those books I was able to close at the end and just smile about it.
Can't wait for the next book in the series!
I was drawn into Elise's life quite quickly, the author has written an interesting main character who is very likeable. As the truth is revealed I couldn't help but imagine how hard it would be to be in her situation, what would any of us do in that moment. The story moved at a good pace and I never felt bored by the plot. To start with I wasn't quite sure how everything would play out. There were quite a few possibilities and I was kept guessing if Elise would get her happy ending. Elise's back story with her mum was very sad and I definitely felt sympathy for her. It also explains some of her behaviour with Gary, her friends and her possible love interests.
Even though this is the second book in a series it can be easily read as a standalone book. The characters fit well into the story and with each other. The frostiness between Elise and Clare is quite a good side story and how they animosity creates problems with their mutual friend Sarah. After every situation Elise finds herself in I kept thinking to myself it can't get any worse can it?
Overall I would recommend this book its not a straight forward romance there are a few twists along the way. This makes it a slightly more interesting read than your average book.
Perfect reading for the weekend or a holiday, it will definitely leave you with a smile on your face!
4 stars from me!
Thank you to So Vain Books & Netgalley for my copy to read & review.
Ultimately this was an entertaining story about what happens when people fight who they are, drown themselves in lies, and what happens when the truth finally comes out. Telling lies always leads to more lies and it’s hard to find your way out. I adored some of the relationships in this novel and enjoyed the overall story. Looking forward to more from this author.
Elise is a thirty-year-old teacher who goes out of her way to ensure that all of the students in her school have an equal opportunity to achieve. Less than a year ago, she found out her husband of twelve years was being unfaithful. As she deals with the death of her once wonderful marriage, her best friend is planning her holiday wedding, her sister is getting married and is also pregnant with twins. This is a very intense time for Elise and being supportive does not come very easily. However, with each day she becomes a little stronger and her greatest wish finally comes true. Elise has more than a couple of suitors, and her soulmate is the kindest one of all.
Wow, what an entertaining and likable story. I definitely plan on reading the first book in the Whitsborugh Bay series, which is all about Sarah, Elise's best friend. Sarah is a secondary character in this book. Ms. Redland does a terrific job of defining the characters and I felt that I knew them all intimately by the end of the story. She voices "nasty" and "bitchy" extremely well. Overall, this is nicely written book that does not disappoint.
