When Girlfriends Break Hearts
by Savannah Page
Genre: Chick-lit, Women’s fiction, Contemporary Fiction
Life is sweet, her job is great, and her dreams are coming true until bitter betrayals descend on Sophie. Her relationship with her dreamy boyfriend Brandon explodes when he confesses to one of the worst misconducts a couple can face. Control-obsessed Sophie faces one of the biggest challenges of her life as her friendship is tested with her cherished circle of friends. Can she learn to forgive, reconcile, and carry on with her life?
When Savannah Page labels this book as “chick lit”, she is not kidding. If you have too much testosterone for stories including “feelings”, relationships, decorating, gardening, or girls nights with baking and chick movies, this book is not for you. The rest of us will love it!
Savannah’s characters are peppy and fun, and her plot is meandering but realistic. I felt like Sophie and her friends could be real people here in Seattle. I enjoyed Sophie’s personal growth from a woman who clung to her sense of control over her life, to maturity in understanding “letting go” of things for her good and the good of those she loves.
I did feel that the action of the book struggled after the climax. The descriptions turned to introspection, and skimped some on the dialogue and action. Many transitional scenes took away from the power of the message. The message held true, though, and brought some important lessons that everyone needs to know.
Savannah serves a warm, delicious serving of tangy life, drizzled with spicy drama, and topped with a sweet fluffy dollop of sisterhood. Sophie would certainly have a bestselling menu item at “The Cup and the Cake” with that kind of entrée!
