Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
This book could have been absolutely amazing but its being held back from greatness from itself. The individual characters are well thought out in the present day; they are strong women who seems to feel comfortable in their own own skin but the skimpiness on their history left me wanting a lot more. The ending reminded me of Snow White’s Scary Adventures at Disneyland – a dark ride with where you don’t know what’s around the corner and then poof! Sunlight and they lived happily every after without any means of getting there.
What I loved: Megan was my favorite – maybe because I think she is a teenager who doesn’t exist naturally in the wild and is only a figment of a parent’s imagination. A teenager who willingly would get up 5 days a week at the crack of dawn in the summer to go into the city to be with her little sister? That’s about as rare as an all white liger born in captivity.
What I didn’t love: Sabrina seems to have a serious drinking problem that she magically resolves by the end of the book with true love. Danielle can easily head back to work with her toxic ex-husband with no issues in a few short weeks as her maternity leave winds down – because all major law firms love their associates to have babies. Michelle throws more money at their children because you always take the billionaire spouse back even if he’s a cheater. Megan’s the only one who wins – she gets her own place. It would have been nice to see how all of these things came to be instead of just a poof!
What I learned: Country mouse here…
