BE KIND Think Positive!


A novel by Karen White is always an entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. A story of two women that click, although they are of different generations. Both women have secrets. In Sweet Apple, Georgia there is a blog with commentary on those living there. The anonymous blog was selected to comment on the reason for Merilee Talbot Dunlap’s divorce. She and her two children, Lily and Colin moved into a cottage owned by Sugar Prescott, the area’s matriarch. Sugar is not friendly and has definite opinions. For some reason, she is drawn to Merilee and the children. Merilee is starting over as her marriage collapsed as the blog hinted. The children are enrolled in the elite school in the area. Heather, the leader of the volunteers chooses Marilee as a special friend. Heather is the perfect Mother and woman and is happily married Sugar doesn’t like Heather. The twists and turns this story takes will make it hard to put the book down. I highly recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Berkley Publishing through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I’m glad you liked it. I thought it sounded interesting and different from the type of books I usually choose. Unfortunately, my request was not approved.

    • Karen White is a top author. I don’t get approve for all her books. I read many of her printed books from my library. Too bad I can’t read them now. If you like paranormal books her Thradd street series is outstanding. Many are in my TBR lists.
