Mini Review: The Perfect Wave by Lauren Scott

The Perfect Wave by Lauren Scott Published: May 25, 2015 Format: free Kindle read Rating: 2/5 Synopsis Follow along as Ginger she discovers a whole new world she has never seen or felt before. Just when Ginger needed it the most, Tanner walked into her life and did not get scared away by her snippy attitude or her tomboyish hobby. This surfing, beer-pouring girl met the love of her life by pouring him a beer. Who would have thought? My Thoughts Okay so this is a very short read 29 pages but I just couldn’t buy into the story. It just felt too rushed and I didn’t believe in the romance. Sorry.

She lives in London, works as a journalist, and parties hard. Her lunchtimes consist of several glasses of wine at the bar downstairs in the office, her evenings much the same, swigging the free booze and eating the free food at a different launch or party every night. When she discovers the identity of the father she never knew she had, it sends her into a spiral. She makes mistakes that cost her the budding friendship of the only women who have ever welcomed her. And nothing is ever the same after that. June, 2014: Cat has finally come to the end of herself. She no longer drinks. She wants to make amends to those she has hurt. Her quest takes her to Nantucket, to the gorgeous summer community where the women she once called family stil

Mini Review: Cat and Jemima J by Jane Green

Cat and Jemima J by Jane Green Published: May 5, 2015 Publisher: St. Martin’s Press Format: via free Kindle read Rating: 5/5 Synopsis From New York Times bestselling author Jane Green comes an original short story featuring Jemima, the main character from Green's beloved novel Jemima J, and Cat, the main character from her upcoming novel Summer Secrets. My Thoughts This is a very short story featuring Jemima J and introducing Cat a character in Jane Green’s newest novel Summer Secrets. I love that we see a glimpse of Cat’s life before all the changes in her life and how she met Jemima J. I like how we see how they met but doesn’t give too much away when it comes to Cat’s character in Summer Secrets.
