Review--Best Friends Forever by Kimberla Lawson Roby

Let me preface this review by saying that this year, I have been in a real reading slump as most of you who have been following me know.  This book, short as it was, gave me back my reading mojo and I've already started on my next read.  Thank you Ms. Roby for getting me back to reading which I so love!!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Celine and Keith have been married for 12 years. Although, for the past month, something has been off with Keith. In the same week that Celine finds out that she has breast cancer, her husband announces to her that he is leaving her. Devastated and overwhelmed by all that is going on, Celine has to do her best to stay strong for her health as well as for her young daughter, Kassie.

Kimberla Lawson Roby really knows how to write a book that will pull at your emotions. You can feel for the characters and I wanted to jump in the story and help. This book made my eyes fill with tears on more than one occasion. This is a great novella and a quick read and if you have never read anything by Kimberla Lawson Roby, this is a great book to start with. I finished in a little over 24 hours. Her Christian Fiction is always inspiring.

Review--China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan

China Rich Girlfriend (Crazy Rich Asians #2)China Rich Girlfriend by Kevin Kwan
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm upset that I didn't know that this was a sequel. I would have read the first book as well. I am definitely going to go back and do that and I hear there is a third book in the works called Rich People Problems which I also look forward to reading.

This book is based on a number of very rich Asians located all over the world. The main focus of the book is about Rachel Chu. Rachel is about to marry Nicholas Young, but feels like there is one last thing she has to accomplish before hand, finding her biological father. It has been her mission most of her life. Then an incredible thing happens on the night before the wedding, during the rehearsal that will send Rachel and Nick on a world wide tour to find the father she never knew. With stops in Shanghai and Paris, Rachel meets some the wealthiest in Asia. Her new husband being heir to one of these families. She gets to meet some of her new family and and lots of very influential people in the Asian community. When tragedy strikes, Rachel and Nick are unsure of who to trust in this elaborate group, but time will reveal the truth and they will find out if the family Rachel has been searching for was worth finding.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
