In An Oyster Shell- This is the best book of Ella Quinn’s Series the marriage game. Even though it is the seventh book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. If you are looking for something fun and romantic, I absolutely recommend this book.
The Pearls –
My first impression of this book was apprehensive because the author warned me that it would be different from her other books. Personally when I’ve had an author warn me about their book it makes me less excited to read it. If they are apprehensive about their own book, it makes me less confident.
This is a shameless plug to writers – Do not exude anything but confidence about your works when you are dealing with your readers. It just puts us on an unnecessary emotional roller coaster. So despite the author’s apprehension the book was her best yet.
The story was super fun. It falls in line with the series premise of Bachelor’s of the Ton who find themselves chasing after beautiful women and then marrying them despite their doubts of marriage. I like how the series follows this premise –
“Ella Quinn’s bachelors do as they like and take what they want. But when the objects of their desire are bold, beautiful women, the rules of the game always seem to change…”
They really do what they want in the beginning, then they find amazing strong women who usually have them crawling on their hands and knees by the end. Other people may find this theme redundant after a while, but I love it… It doesn’t get old for me.
My favorite part about this book was the love scenes were absolutely tasteful. Quinn’s love scenes tend to be, anyways but I liked them best in this book.
An added bonus for me about this book was the different foods the character’s partook in. I am going through a phase right now where I really love food inspiration’s from books. I guess when I think about it, I always have. Starting with the Little House on the prairie books, when the authors make food a part of the story, I feel like I can take that and recreate it my world and it makes me more connected to the story. I can’t wait to make some singing hinnies!
The Sand – I felt like this book was well done and is good as is.
I give this book 5 pearls. Way to go Ella Quinn!
