The Spinster Sister ~ A Reaction

The Spinster SistersThe Spinster Sisters by Stacey Ballis

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This story began with engaging writing and a snappy premise regarding revisionist spinsterhood. The two sets of spinster sisters are well characterized and developed. The promising beginning chapters give way to a soft, spongy center of repetition and wordiness that appear to pad the book. The predictable ending could be forgiven had the writing held up throughout the story.
If you enjoy Lifetime movies, you'll like this book.

Succinctly Yours #28

When the car wash shut down, Bill had to make the best of a difficult situation. Not only is Bill fastidious, but also pugnacious.
