I was excited to read another Monique Bucheger book after reviewing the first book in the series, The Secret Sisters Club. This new novel
was equally good.
I loved that it was fun to read about how family can support and forgive each other even in unexpectedly trying situations. My daughter of the same age as Ginnie and Tillie read this book too! She said, “It was better than the first!”
She and I both loved that Ginnie threw less fits about not having her mom’s journals but she did complain more. I’m guessing it was because she doesn’t know much about her mom since she died when Ginnie was just three and misses her a lot.
I loved the sweet chapter near the ending with the very exciting events. It was a surprise to both my daughter and I, then, how the book took a sudden turn in the last chapter which segues into the next book! We are both intensely interested in seeing how that book resolves this plot line!
I received a free copy of the ebook. All opinions are completely my own.
