The Trouble with St. John Book Review
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. 4 out of 5 chickadees singing! I really enjoyed this book! The main character’s “voice” and writing style was engaging. She was hilarious with her feelings and opinions. She wrote as if she were talking to a BFF.
Samantha’s fiancé has dumped her and disappeared, so she decides to go on her Honeymoon to St. John alone. While there, she loses her engagement ring… Or was it stolen? She meets a lot of interesting, suspicious characters, including a couple hotties. She decides to start sleuthing on her own to figure out what the heck is going on.
It was kind of fun to watch Samantha’s process since she isn’t actually an experienced detective. The comments on the blog added a fun feel, especially near the end. Super creative format. I loved how Samantha wanted to be a super-cool spy, but was really inexperienced and kept getting lost. It was like how I would probably be if I stumbled upon a real crime!
The characters were all really fun and confusing. I didn’t know who Samantha should trust either! As for the mystery, it all came together and made sense. It did get really confusing in the middle and wasn’t easy to figure out.
I would definitely recommend this book to fans of chick lit! It was an enjoyable, engaging story with a hilarious main character. Her “voice” is really what made the story! I would love to read the next one in the series.
