Lessons from a Kindred Sister

~ I received a copy of this book from the publisher or author to facilitate this review.  I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): A delightful tale of dishy drama, feel-good inspiration, and sassy humor.

Intelligent, fun-loving Sarah Evans is in need of a glass of wine.  After all, being unceremoniously dumped by your fiancĂ© who leaves you with a ridiculously expensive apartment that makes you even more of a slave to a job you hate can really put a damper on things.  (If you think that last sentence was a lot to take in, try living it...hmmm, better make that two glasses of wine.)  As her sips turn to gulps, Sarah receives a journal from a mysterious Parisian woman known only as a 'kindred sister'.  What lies inside has the power to change her life forever.  Before Sarah's world can begin to sparkle like champagne, things take a decidedly vinegary twist when she learns of a dear friend's horrible betrayal.  Will the journal be enough to keep Sarah's life from fully uncorking, or will her glass of cabernet be relegated to being forever half-empty?

My Review: 

One (or more) Sentence Summary: GREAT ADVICE with a fantastic story. There are 10 wonderful lessons in the book.  I loved them all.  I will share one (yes only one) with you....Stop Complaining and Get Some Perspective.  "If you are a complainer - STOP!"  

Favorite Character(s):  Sarah was the main character and I loved her from the start.  Her side-kick Jen was such a strong "chic."  She was just what Sarah needed.  Christopher was my knight in shining armor! Wouldn't we all like a "Christopher" in our lives!

Setting:  Seattle!  This is my 3rd book recently set in Seattle.  It must be the new NYC.  The setting works that is for sure!  

Fast read/slow read:  Gobbled it up.....very fast!

Cover:  It works for me, but I didn't really pay much attention to it since it was e-book.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes....Neeta let me know as soon as your next book is available!  I want to be on the "RUSH" list!

Meet the Author: Neeta Nahta, aka The Smart, Sassy Goddess, uses the term Chick-Sass Lit to represent her genre of fiction - a combination of Chick Lit Women's Fiction and Personal Development. Her writings interweave whimsy with wisdom, indulgence with introspection.  They also feature some pretty kick-sass women! Her first novel, Lessons from a Kindred Sister, is the first volume in her Sisters in Life Series.
