2000s Series Where Women get Revenge em Name that Book (Setembro 2018)

Críticas

The three novellas in this collection are equally well written and interesting. In “Tiny Blessings,” four puppies are the catalyst that unite two neighbors in a romantic beginning. In “Dogwood Season,” twins are planning their combined weddings, but their wishes couldn’t be more different. But then, these twins were different all their lives. A wise grandmother is the one who will fulfill their wants and more. In “Cowboy True,” a second wife is the one who will pour oil on the troubled waters when the ex-wife shows up. While dad is trying to protect his two sons from a neglectful mom, someone else will have to step in to defuse the situation. All three of these novellas are entertaining. They deal with the problems that romance and marriage can bring, but all have happy endings.… (mais)

This was a fun holiday read even though I didn't start it until the holidays were over! It started a little slow but picked up quickly and moved right along after that. It was interesting to see all the byplay among a group of adult women friends. I would definitely recommend it to others!

The main character seemed a little to drama queen for me. As a bigger girl I felt drawn to the character, but I hated how she always complained about the 60 pounds she had gained, it was constant in the book, no matter how much anyone told her that she was beautiful she just kept on whining!

The synopsis for The Wild Side by Fern Michaels sounded intriguing. Unfortunately, the story fell flat. The first half or so of the book felt like a biography as we learn about Melanie’s upbringing, education, and work history (I kept wondering when there would be some of the promised action). There is no mystery, action, or suspense (this section helped my insomnia). The pacing is leisurely. Melanie going undercover is towards the end of the book. It ended so quickly (I said, “that’s it?”). The conclusion was rushed. I was happy that there was little romance. The story had too much build up. I did not feel the school counselor and the OSI agent storylines went together (seemed odd). We got detailed descriptions on some high-end fashions and perfumes (did we really need to know each perfume she paired with each outfit/persona). I loved the retired service dogs that Melanie was coerced into adopting. Unfortunately, I did not find The Wild Side to be an enjoyable reading experience.… (mais)
