Review: I'll Have Who She's Having by Liz Fenton & Lisa Steinke

First line: I'm shaking as I leave him, still in shock over what just happened.

Why I read this: I got a request from a publicist wanting to know if I would be interested in participating in the authors blog tour.

Synopsis: What happens when a man comes between one desperately single and one very married sister? Kate’s been depressed ever since yet another long-term boyfriend unceremoniously dumped her. When her younger and married sister Kelly convinces her the way to meet a quality man is for the two of them to sign up for a volleyball class, she’s just desperate enough to agree. But Kate becomes so fixated on their coach that she fails to see an unlikely but perfect match right in front of her.

My thoughts: This was another fantastic book by the dynamic duo of Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke and another book that I devoured in one day!  This time we follow two sisters at different yet similar places in life who finally discover that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Older sister by Kate is single, depressed about yet another bad breakup and worried she'll never find 'the one.' Younger sister Kelly is married with a child but questions all the decisions she's made in her life. Again, as in The D Word, this tale is told from alternating view points as the story line progresses. It was great being able to get inside not only both sisters' heads as they experienced the same event, but also some of the other major characters. I really commend the authors for being able to write a seamless storyline together - I hope they create more fun stories together!
