Chick lit

The Summer of Sunshine and Margot by Susan Mallery

This book is up for requesting on NetGalley till 12th July 2019

I’ve only reviewed one other book by the author on this blog (A Marcelli Wedding) but there was a period of time that I read a lot of her books with the guarantee that I was in for a comfortable read with great characters, a well-written romance and especially strong women.

This book fits the above description perfectly, we have a pair of sister set apart by traits both physical and mental but who are a team all the same. They both start new jobs at the start of our story, one as a personal etiquette trainer (a fascinating job from the descriptions but must be really hard to carry out effectively) and the other as a dedicated nanny. Both of them have past mistakes they plan to learn from and never repeat and there are good men in their current surroundings. Most of the story may be predictable and a few graphic scenes but the people are well written and it is hard not to get caught up in their lives and feel with and for them. Sometimes a tried and tested formula with different ingredients works well and this was one of those times. I felt like it was an afternoon well spent with the Baxter twins. Their jobs (all four main characters) are described in a way that you would find even that interesting.

I received this book as an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is completely based on my own reading experience.
