Saturdays at Sweeney's by Ashley Farley

Saturdays at Sweeney's (Sweeney Sisters Series)Saturdays at Sweeney's by Ashley Farley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having pre-ordered Saturdays st Sweeney's, I thought I would read it as soon as I received it. I didn't cause I was bummed about it being the last of the series. After reading it, I realized that the author chose the perfect place to end the chapter on the Sweeney sisters. It couldn't have ended any better and all the mysteries were tied up neatly. There were new dilemmas so it wasn't the same old, same old, but lots of familiar faces that I came to love. Each of the sisters faced separate tragedies and one that would affect the entire family right down to little Bitsy. Excellent plot. It grabs you and won't let you go until the last sentence. The characters are real. The locations perfectly described. I would like to live in Prospect. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

A Summer of New Beginnings by Bette Lee Crosby

The Summer of New Beginnings: A Magnolia Grove NovelThe Summer of New Beginnings: A Magnolia Grove Novel by Bette Lee Crosby

The Summer of New Beginnings is Bette Lee Crosby's best work so far. The story is real, highly believable, and grabs you from the moment you begin reading and doesn't let go of the hold the words have on you long after you are finished reading. it. The plot is unique. It has sadness, joy, romance, and surprises all through the book. One needs tissues and don't start it like I did with plans to read a few pages, because you can't put it down. You will want to read it straight thru. This is a five star read in my estimation. I know that it will be in yours.

Liars Like Us by Mary Campisi

Liars Like Us (Reunion Gap Book 2)Liars Like Us by Mary Campisi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the best Mary Campisi's novels in my estimation. There is a bit of mystery and a whole lot of romance within the pages. While I wasn't too keen on the first book in this series, I loved this one. Charlotte and Tate are well developed characters with a realism that one appreciates from this author The plot is exciting and new. I found myself not being able to put it down until I finished it. I didn't even mind the fact that there are a couple of cliffhangers because the main story is neatly wrapped up. Oliver and Jennifer's relationship is one of the cliffhangers and who is the mystery father of the child. I think I know, but cannot be certain. This is a must read for all fans of Mary Campisi. "I voluntarily reviewed this ARC in exchange for an honest review."
