Review: Ripple The Twine

Hi and welcome to Storm Goddess Book Reviews! As part of a virtual book tour through Chick Lit Plus, I'm reviewing Ripple the Twine, by Jenn Flynn Shon

A Tomboy-meets-Townie love story and tale about how friendship can save your life. Sara Quinn is a Sportswriter from Boston and over the past year she has started to earn major respect in the local market. In the process, however, she abandoned her personal relationships and put her emotions in the box. Regardless of her self-imposed timeout, a friend introduces her to Ben. With blue eyes, black hair and a brogue, he's her ultimate triple threat. But they connect just as Sara learns that her friends are facing heavy emotional crises. She starts offering advice, becoming a rock for everyone else, and in the process Sara unearths her own long dormant insecurities. But a bag of peanut butter cups and a hockey game won't fix her issues. She's got to move past her emotional past without hiding behind her career for once. She needs her friend's support as much as they need hers and the four will quickly discover that, when they stick together, their offense is virtually unstoppable.

Review Rating: 3.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS 

Review: Ripple the Twine is entertaining and interesting. The part of my problem is Sara wasn't always likable to me. I had a hard time in many cases relating to her.  Sometimes she's pushy and her attitude rubbed me the wrong way.

Though I did love Ben. And, after awhile, Sara's behavior got better, or maybe I got more  used to her, I'm not sure.

Ripple The Twine makes for a good read. It has  situations that many can relate to, and there are some times where I was laughing, as the dialog is very zingy and fresh.
