Book Review: One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke opens with six friends arriving in Greece to celebrate an upcoming wedding. Each one of the women have a secret, and one of them is determined to make sure the wedding doesn't happen. And, one of them ends up dead. Thank you to NetGalley, Penguin Group Putnam, and G.P. Putnam's Sons for a digital Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke. I was ecstatic to be selected to read this book in exchange for my honest review. Wow! I'm at a loss of what to say about One of the Girls because it was that fantastic. Fun. Engrossing. Well Written. Unputdownable. These are just a few words I'd use to describe this novel.  There were red herrings galore. With that being said, I had my suspicions that the "killer" was one of two people, and one of them ended up being the killer, so I was happy with my deduction. On the other hand, I couldn't figure out who the victim was going to be, and I was completely surprised b

Book Review: Runaway (A Changes Romance #4) by Marilyn Kaye


As a teenager, I discovered the "Changes Romance" books series that targeted teens and always had a life lesson. None of the books in this series have nothing to do with the others, and each book in the series has a different author. Unfortunately, I never could find all the books in the series when I was a teen, so now as an adult, I've been tracking down the books I never read. Thank goodness for ThriftBooks.com! Runaway (A Changes Romance, #4) by Marilyn Kaye was one of those books.

I loved the life lessons taught in Runaway, and my favorite life lesson was that you can always go home again. It also teaches teens that being an adult isn't as glamorous as it seems. I've read many of Marilyn Kaye's books, but this was one of my least favorites that she wrote. I just didn't quite connect with it like some of her other works. By all means, it isn't poorly written. It's actually very well written.

One of the major themes throughout the book was family and how some people have a much better family life than others. Kind of a "the grass isn't always greener" lesson. I don't know how I would have handled having an alcoholic mother and being forced to take care of a little sister at the young age of nineteen like Joe had too.

All in all, I enjoyed reading Runaway (A Changes Romance, #4) by Marilyn Kaye and give it three out of five stars.

Synopsis: The last straw for Leeza is when her mother tells her that she can't take the part time job at a trendy clothing store. The seventeen year old has had enough of having to give up her dreams and life to babysit her twin siblings and decides to miss her high school graduation by running away to New York to become an actress. However, the best laid plans don't always work out like you think they will.
