(45) As Sure As The Sun by Anna McPartlin

Whew, this having a life thing is for the birds! Not enough reading time! *grin*. This past week was a very busy week for me both professionally & personally. I had the rare weekend off & it was spent almost entirely with my family. I did manage to finish this book though!

I loved Anna McPartlin's book, Apart From the Crowd and thoroughly enjoyed it. While I enjoyed this book, I didn't enjoy it as much as the other one. It may have been because I was not able to finish it quickly, therefore it felt like a chore.

It is Harri's wedding day. Her second wedding day. The first wedding day was postponed when Harri had to be hospitalized for a panic attack. She is hoping that she can get through the second wedding day without an attack & she will be married to her beloved, James. Unfortunately history repeats herself and Harri can not make it down the aisle. While waiting in the emergency room, Harri's twin, George jokes that she is the most glamorous patient there.

After Harri is released from the hospital her life is further turned upside down. James leaves her for good. And her parents drop a bombshell, that while it may explain the panic attacks, it devastates both Harri & George.

Can Harri & George find it in their hearts to forgive their parents? Will Harri be able to find the truth about her past? Will George be there for her once the smoke clears? Will James ever be able to forgive her?

Harri & George have a solid group of friends and family that surround them in their time of need, but is that enough to come through this mess unscathed?

As Sure As The Sun was an okay book. Set in Ireland, the book was well written & not quite the fluff one would think. But it is a good story with developed characters and maybe even a happy ending or two.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
