Izzy As Is Review

Izzy As Is

By Tracie Bannister

I was given this book and am voluntarily reviewing it. It was so much fun to read more about party-girl Izzy! Izzy has been living the high life as a model. She is horrified to learn that now that she’s hit 30, the jobs are drying up. When she sees a former model frenemy with a rich old man, she gets an idea. Her next “career” will be trophy wife to someone wealthy and she can continue the lifestyle she is accustomed to. She eventually finds the rich and handsome Eduardo, but as their relationship continues, Izzy realizes some flaws in her plan. 

Izzy is such a fun main character. Although I couldn’t always relate to her, it was fun to read about someone so different than myself. I really liked Izzy’s character growth and getting to read more about Pilar and Ford. This book kept me engaged the whole time and was fast-paced. I really enjoyed it! It was just fun!

Twin Piques Book Review

Twin Piques

Author: Tracie Bannister

Genre: Chick Lit, Romance

Pages: 383

Published: January 3, 2015

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was really excited when I got an email from Tracie Bannister requesting that I review her new book, Twin Piques. I read her book, In Need of Therapy early last year and really enjoyed it. I think I got it free on Kindle and you never can tell with those books, so hers surprised me, in a GOOD way. I enjoyed Twin Piques just as much!

Twin Piques is about two twins with very different personalities. Willa is the dreamer and the romantic one, who works as a pet psychic. Sloane works in finance and is very focused on her career, with no eye on romance. Willa meets a handsome rose expert, Brody, in the beginning of the book that she hires to fix her grandmother’s garden, but there is a disturbing secret that challenges their romance. Sloane is also in for a surprise regarding her “friends with benefits” relationship with a co-worker.

I loved the two different characters of Sloane and Willa. Truly, Willa was my favorite. She was adorable! Everyone needs a positive, spunky, and cheerful person like her in their life. Sloane was on the other extreme end. I enjoyed reading her story, though I didn’t relate to her as much as I did to Willa. Their relationship was another highlight of this book. They stuck together through thick and thin and their opposite personalities played well off of each other. I adored the love interests in this book! They were very different, but both completely swoon-worthy. Each man seemed well suited for the woman he was opposite. On a side note, Bannister highlighted some really interesting and diverse careers in this book- Willa is a pet psychic, their friend, Gav, writes comic books, and Brody is a rose expert.

I loved the writing style of the book! It was fun and light-hearted chick lit that pulled me in right away. The plot was fast moving and it kept my interest throughout. I would highly recommend this book to fans of chick lit! 4/5 chickadees singing!
