I GIVE THIS BOOK:
After reading the first two books in this series, Making Waves and A Great Catch, I was really looking forward to reading The Ride of Her Life - I was so sure I was going to love it! However, I was very disappointed in it. I think my expectations might have been too high for this book, because the first book was excellent and the second book was very good. I hate being in the minority with an opinion on a book, but that seems to be the case with this one. Every review I have seen so far for this book has been extolling it, but it just didn't do it for me.
I loved Lilly in Making Waves, but in this book she just came across as very annoying, negative and paranoid. I couldn't connect with her like I did with Marguerite and Emily. I tried so hard to find something, but came up empty. The other characters in the story were great: Nick was fun and charismatic, Eugenia made me laugh, and Lilly's son, Levi, was SO adorable you can't help but love the little guy!
If you have read the first two books, you will probably still want to read this one. But if you are thinking of getting this book to read by itself, I don't think I would recommend it. I would however recommend this series as a whole - the first two are great!
***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
