Possible spoiler: for long-time fans of Ms. Stark, you will love the revisiting of characters that we've met in previous books. Good times to watch Melody and Luna strike up their friendship and see the differences between their personalities. Sometimes an author can become guilty of "retreading" all of their heroes and heroines in the same mold. Part of the delight of SOMETHING TRUE is seeing old friends from other books come together and still maintain the distinct traits that make them memorable. (It would be cool to have Steve and Anthony as brothers, as long as they lived a couple of states away. Oh, and also, "Hello, Melody's aunt and uncle. My name is Karma, and I'll be your waiter in this novel." What a couple of smarmy *sshats. Said approvingly.)
SOMETHING TRUE is a big chocolate cake, ready to be gobbled down all in one sitting and with no regrets. Can't wait for the next Sabrina Stark installment!
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book.
I liked this story for the most part but did find some aspects of it frustrating and the storyline lost me for a while in the middle. Despite telling Melody he loves her, Joel continues to pull disappearing acts without much, or any, explanation. I found his actions and his words to be at odds with each other in parts and he did like to keep her in the dark. Although I understand he said this was in order to protect her, personally it felt disjointed to me. Because of this, I'm afraid I didn't get hugely emotionally invested in their relationship. The way Joel aways seemed to answer a question with a question or a "what do you think" became annoying and I wanted to shake him. I did, however, enjoy the inclusion of other family members and Luna's brothers, Steve and Anthony, added some great humour with their banter and practical jokes. I took great delight in the way Melody's aunt and uncle got their just deserts. Humorous moments and a sweet happy ending made this an enjoyable read overall and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Ok, here it is. Read 'Something Tattered' 1st.
This conclusion hit It. Out. Of. The Park.
I was up way too late because I could NOT put the book down.
I love the characters in this book. There are some books that tie in here, and I was very happy to be reunited with them. They in no way detract from this story. It isn't necessary to read them first. It was a fluke that I had already read them.
Melody Blaire-heiress to an estate that is held in trust until she turns 25. 4 long years away. She cannot afford to hire the work done on her own. She mows the lawn and makes repairs to the run down estate by working several jobs. Dishonest Lawyers that want her under their thumb and check on her constantly. She is on a panel that endows an art scholarship to several people a year. She meets Joel Bishop at such a meeting. Her childhood friend Derek (son of her lawyer), humiliates Joel Bishop who needed a job. This was in payback for a meeting between Derek & Joel that did not go in Derek's favor.
Joel & Melody have chemistry in spades.
Great story, great laughs.
