Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

A Tale of Two Sisters

First Comes Love: A Novel - Emily Giffin

First Comes Love was the emotionally-charged story of two sisters who were both irrevocably changed by a family tragedy. The bulk of this book takes place fifteen years after that horrific loss, showing how different their lives have become and how the rift has grown between them.

‘But there is one constant, one thing you can always count on: that not only does love come first, but in the end, it is the only thing that remains.’

I have to mention right away that I truly enjoyed Giffin’s writing voice. There was a nice flow to the story and it made this a breeze to read. I also liked that this was told from both Josie and Meredith’s POVs, alternating chapter by chapter. It did start off with their mother’s view on the incident that occurred–which was bittersweet and broke my heart–but I thought it was a very important way to begin this family’s tale.
