(121)Small Change by Sheila Roberts

I had never read a book by Sheila Roberts before today. I have seen her books for years in the Romance section at the bookstore, but I really don't think that is the appropriate location for them. Well, for Small Change anyway. I would say Small Change is much more of a woman's friendship book, than a romance.

The subject matter is very timely given the economic climate of our country right now. Small Change is about three friends in Seattle who all are having money troubles. Tiffany never met a credit card she didn't like, Rachel is struggling to make ends meet after her divorce, and Jess is forced back into the work force after her husband loses his job.

The three friends create a support group for their money troubles. Offering money saving tips and suggestions in a way that only real friends can.

I really enjoyed Small Change. It wasn't to strenuous on my poor brain, yet it was realistic in so many ways. The characters are all likeable, but with their own realistic quirks or issues. The tale is one that so many of us could tell. Very enjoyable and I would call it Kristin Hannah-lite. Women power without the excessive drama.

After reading your review, I immediately thought of The Penny Pinchers Club by Sarah Strohmeyer (which was a very good read in case you haven't read it yet). This one sounds just as good.

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.
