Book #8 - Just Between Us by Cathy Kelly

It just occurred to me that I am a tad behind if I hope to make 50 books by the end of the year. Damn.

I loved this book. The story revolves around the Miller family - the mother and father who have been married almost 40 years and have what seems to be a perfect existence, the 3 sisters - who each are charmed in certain ways but never see the great things in themselves, and all their partners in crime and assorted relatives. I was into this book from page 1. This novel was over 500 pages but it did not seem like it at all. I never found that it drug out or anything. The characters were all likeable and I related on some level to all of their situations. I highly recommend this book.

I am now just starting to read "The Undomestic Goddess" by Sophie Kinsella - famous for her "Shopaholic" books. I was not a fan of those but her book "Can You Keep a Secret?" was fantastic. I'll keep y'all informed. I'm sure you will be waiting with bated breath.

"Undomestic Goddess" was really good. It was a real quick read, too, so maybe that will help you get to your 50 faster.

I have read all of Kinsella's books and have yet been disappointed!
