"All my life, I had been worried about becoming trapped in a mediocre life..."
Sophie Penhalligan's chief concern is living a mediocre life. And that's exactly what she's doing. She's a journalist working for a mediocre paper. She lives in a mediocre flat and is in a mediocre relationship. Sophie wasn't always dull. But she's thankful to have her 'wilderness' days behind her. She thinks she's ready for a solid, staid life with her boyfriend, Tim. (kinda reminds me of those Death Cab lyrics about 'staying together out of fear of dying alone'.) However, she can't seem to stop daydreaming about a time spent with her rock star crush, Dan Hunter.
Dan Hunter is the quintessential rock star. He's gorgeous, gregarious, suave - and he's ready to sweep Sophie off her feet. And he sets about doing everything he can to do just that! Then there's Tim. Stable, reliable, kind Tim. Tim's ready to make a commitment to Sophie. And he's been constant for the past two years. With two men vying for her affections, Sophie embarks on a soul-search of sorts. And in the process, makes some startling revelations about what she truly wants out of life.
What I loved about Sophie's Turn? I loved the passion - Sophie's passion for music, her writing, and for Tuscq, Dan's band. I loved seeing the tight bond of friendship between Sophie and her best friend, Rachel. I loved the romance between Sophie and Dan. But mostly, I loved watching Sophie have her turn. She begins as a 'soft' and uncertain young woman and blossoms into a more self-aware, self-assured woman. And that was lovely.
My only real frustration with the story came from Sophie, though. She made some questionable decisions. Decisions that were potentially hurtful to others. Although, in the end these decisions aided her in her self-discovery, I couldn't help being a little miffed with her about what I felt was her selfishness.
Ms. Wells has created an engrossing story. Her writing is vivid and made me feel as thought I was watching the story rather than reading it. This was particularly wonderful for me since the story is set in England, with a few jaunts to Paris, and although I've never been to these places, Ms. Wells painted brilliant images for me.
I thoroughly enjoyed Sophie's Turn and I can't wait to start Sophie's Run!
Sophie Penhalligan is a twenty-eight year old London newspaper journalist who has been in a two year relationship with the safe and steady accountant Tim, who has finally proposed to her. But then along comes a blast from the past when her teen idol and rock star heartthrob Dan Hunter from the band Tusk comes back into her life after ten years and proposes to her too! Sophie accepts both of their proposals and finds herself in a dilemma ... what's a girl to do?
Sophie's Turn is a sassy fun rockin' romance story that will keep your toes tapping! Written in a witty and humorous style and told in the first person narrative by Sophie, the reader is drawn into her romance story with two very different men, and the journey she embarks on to make a choice of which one will be the man of her dreams. The story is split into three sections: the first section is a flashback to how Sophie got herself into the dilemma of being engaged to two men at the same time; the second section is about the progression of Sophie's relationships with both men; the third section is about the dilemma and how Sophie gets herself out of the predicament and the decision she makes at the end. I really enjoyed how the author weaves this romantic tale within the three sections, it flows smoothly and has a nice balance of humor, emotion and romance in the mix, with so many twists and turns that will keep you guessing how it will turn out for Sophie, Tim and Dan.
The author has created a great cast of characters who are realistic, engaging and easy for the reader to relate to. You can't help but feel for Sophie, she's a sincere woman who battles with her conscience over the dilemma she finds herself in and agonizes over a decision, come on if you had two men in love with you could you make an easy decision? Luckily Sophie has a valuable BFF in Rachel who stands by her ready to listen, give advice and provide a shoulder to lean on. Then we have the two men: steady, dependable and anal accountant Tim; and sexy rock star Dan ... each have qualities that are appealing ... but what's a girl to do when she has to choose one or the other? As I followed Sophie's story, I found myself swaying back and forth between Tim and Dan, I'm glad I wasn't in Sophie's shoes because I don't know how I would make my choice.
Rich in detail and descriptions of the music scene and European settings, with witty character dialogue and interactions, passionate romance scenes, and a completely unpredictable ending, makes Sophie's Turn one heck of an entertaining read!
Sophie's Turn is the author's debut novel and first installment in the Rock Star Romance Trilogy. This modern day romance will captivate you from the start, keep you rockin' as you turn the pages and leave you wanting more!
