Past Perfect Life
by Elizabeth Eulberg
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars
Perfect for the mood I have been in lately, this story pulled me in and I enjoyed it. It is not earth shattering and it is often times predictable, but it was nevertheless enjoyable. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a mystery story and is not disappointed if you can predict the outcome of it.
Other thoughts: I liked the drive of the main character, Ally, and could relate to her need to help her father out by getting scholarships for college. I honestly like the father too, despite knowing he committed a major crime. My biggest concern for this story is that it wrapped up very quickly, it felt anticlimactic and I needed (and wanted) more.
The Royal We
By Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
My Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
Fine is the first word that popped into my mind when I finished this...nothing was particularly grabbing about this title. I wanted to like it more because I admit I am drawn to the royals, but this one never drew me in like I wanted.
Perhaps it is because I did not read it right it when it was first published, I just could not get into this one. I had issues with the sister, and I know she redeems herself later in the book, but I just had a hard time with it.
In my opinion, a more enjoyable set of titles featuring contemporary royals includes:
- The Royals series by Rachel Hawkins (Prince Charming--originally published as The Royals and the second book is equally as delightful Her Royal Highness)
- Red, White and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
