Anyway....this book is the monthly book club pick over at Julie's website, Peanut Butter Fingers (insert little trademark symbol here, congrats Julie!). It would be a weird fit with my next book and I'm not sure I'll finish that in time so it gets its own review post.
- The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain
I sat at a three and a half stars through most of this book. It held my attention and was an enjoyable read but I wasn't overly wrapped up in it....I didn't look forward to reading it each night but I wasn't anxious for it to be over either. Most of the book focuses on Eve as she builds a life with her past a secret to everyone. Eve interested me and she showed a lot of growth from the teenager she'd been. The last third focused on her daughter and that's where the book dropped off for me. I didn't like Corrine, which isn't always a deal-breaker for me but became one since she simply didn't ring true to me. I didn't believe in her phobias, her falling out with her family (evident from the preview so not a spoiler), or her relationship with her boyfriend. It took the book down to three stars.
This might be a decent airplane book....it passed the time and held my interest but didn't command my full, undivided attention and I'd have no problem putting it away if the plane landed mid-chapter.
