BECOMING BEA By @LeslieJeanGould | Kindle Giveaway and Facebook Party!


My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book, at first I had trouble relating to Bea, she was so prickly and stand-offish. As she came to realize her own faults I warmed up to her, to the point when she cried I cried.  I always say I measure the books I read by whether they make me feel the same emotions the characters are feeling. This one definitely did. A great story, there were some things that seemed rushed, but it didn't ruin the story.  I could only imagine that chaotic scene of trying to care for triplets in a multi generational home. I loved Cate from one of Leslie's previous books and was happy to see her here in this story also.  Which reminds me of a thought that I had, it seems that Leslie Gould has a talent for writing character who are a bit prickly and difficult, and still has the talent to make you care about them.  4 stars from this reviewer.  This book was provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.
