Sparkelicious by Libby Floyd: Blog Tour

I am thankful every now and then for a read that I can just READ and not think too much into, just grab a few quiet minutes each day and turn pressure!  This is that kind of book.  It is one of those reads that you just fall into and you want to keep going to find out what happens to these characters that you feel are your friends and family!

About the Novel:

Laney Montgomery is living the dream – a successful L.A. fashion designer, a fabulous home in the Hollywood Hills and happily married to an English film director. But on a trip back home to South Carolina, she finds herself in the middle of a family crisis, which she’s determined to fix. However, the affections of a handsome, younger man creates havoc in her personal life. With her marriage in serious trouble back in California, Laney is faced with losing it all but maybe that’s the only way for her to find true happiness.

My Thoughts:

 As I mentioned above, this is the kind of book that is an escape for me - a contemporary fiction with all the plot lines that one would want in a light and easy read. 

I loved getting to know Laney, Sophie, Bridgett and Missy - Thomas I could leave behind...what a jerk.  But then again, there has to be one in every novel.  The characters really did grow on me and Matt and Laney's story is cute, albeit predictable, but cute nonetheless.  Like any love story the road can be bumpy, but to find true happiness you have to realize what is and isn't good for you - Laney's lesson was just that.

Some of the antics (especially those of Kara and Thomas) were a little out there, but the more I live the more I see examples of these two out there - they made their bed (literally and figuratively) in this novel and it is nice to see them have to lie in it. 

What wasn't predictable was the storyline of the Senator and Sophie.  Interesting twist of events!

I liked the book, liked that it wasn't to deep and I could cruise right through it.  This would be an amazing beach read, or a novel to grab in-between heavier reads.
