Savannah. Courtney. Peyton. The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.
Today marks day two of the week long celebration leading up the the release of Michelle Madow’s The Secret Diamond Sisters.
This is a fantastic book set in the magical and sleepless city of Las Vegas.
What’s on the agenda for day 2?
My review of course!
Also, each day those participating will be posting a FACT about the book and/or characters in the book that Michelle has given us.
Day 2 FACT:
Savannah and Evie’s friendship is based off a friendship that Michelle had in high school.
Three sisters are going about their normal lives when suddenly, their whole world is flipped upside down. They haven’t had a typical youth, and have had to grow up a little sooner than they would have liked. At least this is the case for older of the three girls, Peyton and Courtney. The dynamics of the book remind me of a mix between Mean Girls and Cruel Intentions. With each chapter switching between 4 different characters, the reader is given the chance to develop their own perspective and to also glimpse inside the lives of more than just one character.
You start off looking at the characters in one way, but as the story goes on, you begin to see them grow and change. The dynamics of the story are forever changing, making it a fun and interesting read. It’s hard for me to pick just one character that I really enjoyed because they all brought something different to the story. I did find myself feeling hatred toward the sister’s dad, Adrian Diamond, and resenting him for his behavior toward being reunited with his daughters. However, I am interested in finding out his secrets and what he is hiding from his family. Overall, I really enjoyed this book and I am really excited to see what happens next.
Five out of five stars
