Book Review: When Girlfriends…

A friend recently recommended that I join Bookbub, which sends you emails with a list of free or bargain bestselling ebooks. All you have to do is list the genres you like, as well as some authors and then you receive an email once or twice a week with recommendations. So, if this is something that interests you, you best join asap.

So one of the authors that I love is Marian Keyes and because of this, Bookbub, recommended that I try Savannah Page, who writes a series called When Girlfriends. So, I bought the first 3 ebooks , which included: When Girlfriends Break Hearts, When Girlfriends Step Up and When Girlfriends Make Choices. And I got all these for only 99c…and I can say that is the best money I have spent on ebooks in a while. I loved them! But, you need to enjoy easy reading Chick Lit, otherwise you will find them so boring and terrible!

For me, they are the perfect way to end my day, reading about what all the girls are getting up to and each book is written from the perspective of one of the girlfriends. They will always make an awesome holiday or beach read, which is why I originally bought them!

I find that Savannah Page’s writes from the heart and her writing is fast paced, easy to follow and fun. These books make you realise how lucky you are to have girlfriends in your life, even if they drive you nuts sometimes or are far away. It is the special bond that you share that makes your friendship strong and infallible.

Below, is a short synopsis of each book from the publisher:

When Girlfriends Break Hearts

Sophie Wharton doesn’t like losing control, especially of her life. She’s always been the girl who’s kept it together – the girl with a charming boyfriend, a lively social life, and plans to start her own bakery. Life is great for Sophie a few years out of college in Seattle…or so she thinks.
Then a series of events start to turn Sophie’s perfectly ordered world upside down. After three years, her boyfriend suddenly decides to call it quits. Her close camaraderie of girlfriends is starting to fall apart. Secrets are exposed. And when she thinks things couldn’t get any worse, Sophie learns that one of her friends is fighting a devastating battle.
Now living with her best friend Claire, Sophie struggles with learning to forgive or forget those who break hearts, while trying to accept that there are some situations she cannot control. But is there still a light at the end of the tunnel? Can a girl find the “good” in the “bad”?
This is a heartfelt story about what happens when friendships take different paths and when life doesn’t exactly go according to plan.

When Girlfriends Step Up

Robin Sinclair is young, determined, and has a promising career at a small publishing house in Seattle. Even though she considers herself unlucky in love, Robin still dreams of eventually meeting Mr. Right and having a happily-ever-after kind of life. And at twenty-five, the world of opportunity is wide. But it’s been a difficult year filled with trials…and it’s only just begun.
While long-time friendships are finally on the mend, and things are starting to look up again, Robin is faced with her biggest challenge yet. She’s single and pregnant. Uncertain now of her future and scared of being alone, Robin must re-examine her life and choices, and summon the courage to step up.
With the love and support of her best girlfriends from college, especially her best friend and roommate, Lara, Robin will learn that when the going gets tough, the best of friends become family. And, perhaps, with their encouragement, Robin can mature and gain the confidence needed to become a single mother. And, who knows about being unlucky in love. Things are suddenly getting interesting with Robin’s attractive co-worker, Bobby.
This is an endearing story about maturity and perseverance. It’s a story about friends coming together as family, about finding the strength within and around, and about writing your own happily-ever-after.

When Girlfriends Make Choices

Lara Kearns has it all. She has her MBA, a successful career in advertising in Seattle, and she’s even living with her best friend and single mom, Robin. Reliable, dedicated, and eager, Lara is the resident go-to-girl, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.
Lara’s that girl who has everything going for her…everything, that is, except for true love. With the big 3-0 on its way and no man in sight, Lara wonders if she’ll always be married to her career, or her cat, and never find the One. But then, when she least expects it, a handsome and suave executive at her firm, Paul Mackenzie, makes a pass at her. Hesitant at first about striking up an office romance, Lara eventually finds herself falling for her charming colleague. And the best part? Paul is falling in love with Lara, too!
What happens, though, when the man of your dreams loves you…and his wife? Battling with what the head and the heart want, Lara finds herself in a precarious situation. Life is spiraling out of control, but with the support of her therapist and friends, Lara must make a choice. Is she really prepared to chase after love…at all costs?
This is a provocative story about struggling between right and wrong. About what you will or won’t do for true love.
