Book two is out! I LOVED book one. Read my review here. And I loved book two, as well. So much so that I’m giving away a paperback copy. But first, a little about the book, The Unlikely Debut of Ellie Sweet.
Back Cover Blurb:
For once, Ellie Sweet has it all together. Her hair now curls instead of fuzzes, she’s tamed the former bad-boy, Chase Cervantes (she has, right?), and her debut novel will hit shelves in less than a year. Even her ex-friends are leaving her alone. Well, except for Palmer Davis, but it can’t be helped that he works at her grandmother’s nursing home.
Life should feel perfect. And yet, it’s not that easy. Ellie’s editor loves her, but the rest of the publishing biz? Not so much. And they’re not shy about sharing their distrust over Ellie’s unlikely debut.
Ellie has always been able to escape reality in the pages of her novel, but with the stress of major edits and rocky relationships, her words dry up. In fiction, everything always comes together, but in real life, it seems to Ellie that hard work isn’t always enough, the people you love can’t always be trusted…and the dream-come-true of publishing her book could be the biggest mistake she’s made yet.
I loved book one, and I love book two as well! Ellie is such a fun character to read. And her life is never boring. I enjoyed reading about her editing process as she got ready for the release of her first book. And it was so much fun how everything came together in the end. While this book held some disappointments for Ellie, she learned that some people can change and some can’t. That resonated with me, because I’ve experienced that in my own life. And though it was a hard lesson for Ellie to learn, it all worked out okay. Live goes on. And sometimes, it’s for the better, even if we never would have thought so from the start. I highly recommend both books! Fun, fun, fun.
