Book #3, Snow Sisters, Love in Bloom Series
Sisters In White

Danica and Kaylie Snow are about to celebrate the biggest day of their lives—their double wedding—on an island in the Bahamas. But no wedding is complete without a little family drama. The two sisters aren’t ready to face the father they haven’t seen since he divorced their mother and moved away to marry his mistress, and live with Lacy, the half sister they’ve never met.

While Danica has exchanged letters and phone calls with Lacy, Kaylie has fervently tried to pretend she doesn’t exist. Lacy is sweet, fun, and nearly a mirror image of Kaylie. To make matters worse, not only is Lacy looking forward to meeting her sisters, but she idolizes them, too. As the countdown to the wedding date ticks on, their parents are playing a devious game of revenge, and there’s a storm brewing over the island, threatening to cancel their perfect wedding. The sisters are about to find out if the bond of sisterhood really trumps all.

SISTERS IN WHITE is part of the 9 book Love in Bloom series – a new release every 30 days. **CONTENT WARNING: Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+**

My Thoughts …

 A book about two sisters who plan a double destination wedding on a tropical island in the Bahamas. What could possibly go wrong ??

Danica and Kaylie have always been close, like best friends. They relied on each other to survive their father’s affair that effectively caused their parents divorce. Children coming from a broken home sometimes have problems with trust in adulthood, but both sisters thought they had gotten past those issues.

That is, until all their guests arrived at the luxurious resort for the wedding. Fathers, mothers, stepmothers, half sisters, cousins, future in-laws … the typical blended family get together, complete with all the drama. The characters deal with so many emotions – anger, fear, hurt, confrontation, and forgiveness. Let’s not forget about love, the couples do engage in some quite descriptive “steamy” love scenes.  Throw in a tropical storm that practically destroys the ceremony on a private island … and you’ll be on the edge of your seat to find out what happens.

I think you’ll love reading this book … getting to know the characters will make them feel like new friends 🙂

BOTH SIDES ~ A Book Review

Imagine if you were in a tragic accident – unable to move or speak but otherwise cognizant of everything around you. Imagine hearing doctors deciding your fate without you having a voice in the outcome.

Alex is a 16-year-old girl who finds herself in that exact situation in Both Sides, a novel that begins when – while on a class field trip – Alex and another girl, Sandra, end up in a horrible accident.

If the doctors act quickly, they may be able to save one body…and one brain. Amid the confusion and uncertainty, we hear everything that’s going on in Alex’s mind – from her initial disbelief to her quips about the absurdity of it all to her realization that she may have to go through the rest of her life living in the body of a girl she couldn’t stand. If she survives.

Both Sides tackles these issues and more. Within its pages every reader will find her own answers and discover, in the end, a story of courage and a girl who never before existed.

Award-winning author Paul E. Stawski captures the minute-by-minute struggles of a 16-year-old girl whose world is suddenly turned upside down in Both Sides. Radical brain surgery is the only option. Time is running out and Alex’s mind is racing: will she still be the same person when she comes out on the other side?

She’s now a celebrity who literally comes face-to-face with her new identity every time she looks in the mirror – and every time someone else looks at her. How will her friends react? How will Sandra’s? And what about their classmates and their parents? With everyone taking sides, Alex begins to wonder: is anyone on her side?

I received this book to review through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, all the opinions above are 100% my own.

My Thoughts …

Are you familiar with the expression “you read my mind”?  In this book you do just that …

I was immediately drawn into Alex’s mind. I kept thinking, wow … how would I feel if I were in this situation, would I react any differently? How scary it would be to know what is going on, but not be able to communicate in any way except quickening or slowing your heart rate.

I think the author was pretty spot-on in his understanding and depiction of a teenage girl’s rollercoaster of emotions. I liked the way he introduced Alex as fairly self-centered and then showed her baby steps of growth toward maturity by her starting to see the situation from Sandra’s point of view.

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in the series, “Taking Sides”.
