In an Oyster Shell – It was a light-hearted romance.
The Pearls – I loved the chick-lit vibe of this story. I loved all the chick-flick references. It was overall a heart-warming light read. That I thoroughly enjoyed.
The plot was interesting. A small town girl trying to make it in the big city. A girl who has been protected her whole life and wants some independence. I love how the main character picks herself up from losing her job and makes a way for her and her friends.
The romance was really sweet. The play of the main character and the love interest was riveting. I liked the push and pull of this romance.
The Sand – It was a good book. It had a few intimate scenes.
