Sophies Turn/ RABT VBTour



Slapper. Slut. Adulteress. These are hardly words that Sophie Penhalligan would
normally use to describe herself. Yet this is exactly how she is behaving, all things considered,
even if she isn’t quite married to Tim yet. And it’s all happening because her past is coming to tempt her! Nine years ago, she met her teenage idol and rock star extraordinaire, Dan, up close and personal. Well, almost. Now Dan has crash-landed back in her life. How could Tim ever stand a chance against the charming, handsome singer? How could she?

My Review:

I found Sophie's Turn to be a smart and sassy read.  It is a sweet romantic story about a girl who doesn't know her own mind and she is trying to define herself and her moral high road while opportunity knocks. Sophie is one of those people that just doesn't quite know how to avoid temptation.   Is she bored? maybe.  Does she just want to make sure, she's not settling?   Yeah...who wouldn't want the best there is for the rest of their life.   I related to her wholeheartedly.   Sometimes we take three steps back to finally come one decided step forward.  Yeah, I could relate to her quite well.

Ms Wells writing developed her characters well and showed the growth in Sophie throughout the pages and I was quite taken by the local lingo used throughout the book (British).
I enjoyed the book and the storyline and loved her characters.   It's fun and it took me back a few decades(only 1 or 2....ok 4) .   Remember Herman's Hermits?   Oh Yeah!   I could've been a groupie!
