Book Review - "The American Heiress" by Daisy Goodwin (#23 - 2016)

The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin

This is the story of fabulously wealthy Cora Cash, a 19th century heiress who has been groomed to go to England and marry a cash-strapped aristocrat and in exchange get that coveted title and social status. This was THE thing to do back then for the turbo rich girls and Cora is the richest of rich.  She and her mother embark on a trip to England.  Quite suddenly she finds herself a Duke.  It is a whirlwind romance and they get married.  But does Cora know what she's gotten herself into?  All the secrets and social traps and players that she may or may not be able to trust?  Will she be able to navigate the rough waters or will she give up?   This book was a super fast read.  Interesting enough to keep you turning the page, however I found, upon finishing, it just wasn't enough.  This could have been a great story, but it just was a decent one.  I wanted it to be more.  Is it worth your time?  Yes, just don't expect this to be Downton Abbey in book form, it most certainly is not.

Book Review - "Second Chance" by Jane Green (#22 - 2016)

Second Chance by Jane Green

Another Jane Green novel, just love her books so much.  That being said, this is probably my least favorite of her novels (that I've read).  It's not bad, it was just super hard to get into.  It centers on friends, Tom, Olivia, Holly, Saffron and Paul, from school who gather twenty years later when tragedy strikes.  They come together, get to know each other again and secrets come out.  They are forced to examine their life choices and they make changes that start them on new, unexpected paths.  The first third of the book is really slow and it was hard sorting all the characters out, it does pick up and then was a quick read after that, but I just didn't feel any fondness for any of the characters.  It's a good beach/vacation read.  But I would pick up one of her other books before this one.  

Other Jane Green reviews:
Family Pictures - maybe my favorite
Jemima J - A fluffy, chick-lit beach read.  Nothing deep here.  It's about a girl who is 100 lbs overweight and her transformation inside and out after deciding to drop the pounds.  Very predictable.  However sometimes you just need a book like this, it's like a bag of Doritos, sometimes they just hit the spot.
