Share the Laughter and Love of These Girls by Sarah Pekkanen



Thank you to BookSparks Pr and Washington Square Press for the copy of These Girls by Sarah Pekkanen.  I have one copy to giveaway.

Synopsis:

Cate and Renee live in an apartment in New York and recently lost their roommate.  They are in search of another roommate.  Enter Trey the handsome writer who Renee still has a desire for a relationship.  He has a little sister Abby who has suddenly come to New York looking for a safe place.  She seeks solace in her brother but because of his job he is unable to care for her.  Trey then turns to Renee and Cate to help with his sister and therefore solving their roommate issue as well.  The solution looks great on paper but is there more to the story?

My Thoughts:

I thought this book was a great read!  I like reading about the magazine world.  I enjoyed the story from the beginning.  I thought it was great how the author wove the conflict within these characters into the story.    Sarah Pekkanen has created characters that you will want to root for.  I would say that I liked this book better than her previous book Skipping a Beat

This book focuses on the inner conflict within the three girls.  The plot focused on the inner struggles that each girl had.  Abby succumbs to anxiety over her nanny job.   Renee struggles with the inner issue of her weight and how it affects her job and relationships.  Cate has secrets of her own about her past.   I felt they were woven together beautifully.

 Sarah is delighted to hear from you on both facebook and twitter.
