Book Review Of “The Favorite Sister” By Jessica Knoll #Booksparks #SRC2018
When five hyper-successful women agree to appear on a reality series set in New York City called Goal Diggers, the producers never expect the season will end in murder…
Brett’s the fan favorite. Tattooed and only twenty-seven, the meteoric success of her spin studio—and her recent engagement to her girlfriend—has made her the object of jealousy and vitriol from her cast mates.
Kelly, Brett’s older sister and business partner, is the most recent recruit, dismissed as a hanger-on by veteran cast. The golden child growing up, she defers to Brett now—a role which requires her to protect their shocking secret.
Stephanie, the first black cast member and the oldest, is a successful bestselling author of erotic novels. There have long been whispers about her hot, non-working actor-husband and his wandering eye, but this season the focus is on the rift that has opened between her and Brett, former best friends—and resentment soon breeds contempt.
Lauren, the start-up world’s darling whose drinking has gotten out of control, is Goal Diggers’ recovery narrative—everyone loves a comeback story.
And Jen, made rich and famous through her cultishly popular vegan food line plays a holistic hippie for the cameras, but is perhaps the most ruthless of them all when the cameras are off. (From Goodreads)
Thank you to Booksparks for sending me this book for free, and for allowing me to participate in #SRC2018
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
I wanted to love it, and I didn’t. Which Saddens me. The premise sounded fantastic, and like something I could get on board with. I love family drama, and the dynamics between sisters. Granted, I do not like reality t.v. and I felt like there were way too many characters in this book to keep up with. I also didn’t like the shallowness to it either. Catty, Judgemental women are not my favorite to read about.
I struggled through it, and pushed through it, though it took me weeks to do so. I finished it, and now I can move on.
