Review: The Dashwood Sisters' Secrets of Love

The Dashwood Sisters' Secrets of Love
Rosie Rushton

The Walker sisters have always lived a privileged life in their beloved Holly House in Sussex. Even though their father, Max Walker, has left the family to live with his new macrobiotic-food-obsessed trophy wife, Pandora, he has always doted on his girls. But then one day, reality crashes down around them when Max has a heart attack and passes away, uncovering the truth that he was knee deep in debt. The Walkers discover that their home is actually in Pandora's name and she decides she wants it back. So the family has to uproot their lives and move to the seaside town of Norfolk in an old cottage. What happens then?

Rating: 3/5

My Thoughts:
This was a decent book. I never really got bored with it and there were some pretty good elements in it, but I found a lot of it a bit cliché. The book had point of views from all three sisters. Ellie is the oldest and bookish one. She deals with her guy problem as I expect most would in her situation.(Which is quite a difficult one) Abby is next and is a drama queen. She is a "boy expert" and is represents what I dislike in a girl pertaining to guys. She breaks rules, abandons her friends, and lies about herself, all in the name of getting a guy. (Who is a total jerk, but she doesn't seem to notice that kind of stuff) Her decisions were the ones that bothered me the most. And last but definitely not least is Georgie, she is the youngest and a total tomboy and is a breath of fresh air. She is thirteen and looks at guys the way people her age should. She isn't trying to grow up to fast, but she does have a few little boy problems. The family dynamic was also very real and believable. All of this together make for a nice read to pass the time.

  1. Sounds like a cute read with three very different sisters. Some more likable than the others.
