Book Review Of “The Shark Club” By Ann Kidd Taylor @booksparks

One summer day on the beach in Florida, two extraordinary things happen to Maeve Donnelly. First, she is kissed by Daniel, the boy of her dreams. Then, she is bitten by a blacktip shark.

Eighteen years later, Maeve has thrown herself into her work as a world-traveling marine biologist discovering more about the minds of misunderstood sharks. But when Maeve returns home to the legendarily charming and eccentric Hotel of the Muses where she was raised by her grandmother, she finds more than just the blood orange sunsets and key lime pies she’s missed waiting for her.

While Maeve has always been fearless in the water, on land she is indecisive. A chance meeting on the beach with a plucky, irresistible little girl who is just as fascinated by the ocean as Maeve was growing up leaves her at a crossroads: Should she rekindle her romance with Daniel, the first love she left behind when she dove into her work? Or indulge in a new romance with her colleague, Nicholas, who turns up in her hometown to investigate an illegal shark-finning operation? 

I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Thank you BookSparks for sending me this book as part of #SRC2017 , in exchange of an honest review.

At 275 pages, this book was a very fast read. It also helped that The Shark Club was a fantastic book. While it was a love story in every sense of the word, it wasn’t mushy and over the top. Maeve, loved Sharks, genuinely loved them. They were her lifes work. Maeve also loved Daniel and Nicholas, who in turn I loved. Maybe one more than the other, But I’ll let you be the one to figure out whom I’m speaking of.

There is nothing negative I can say about this book, it’s cute, it’s heart-warming, it’s sad, and it has a touch of drama. Nothing is overdone, or overly dramatic. It flows well, and its a quick read. I am so happy that I got to read this one! Especially during #Sharkweek!
