Review: Bikini Season by Sheila Roberts

First line: Was it a bad omen when you couldn't zip up your wedding dress?

From the back cover: Erin Merritt has returned to her scenic hometown of Heart Lake to plan her wedding, but when she repeatedly runs into her childhood crush, she wonders if she’s engaged to the wrong man.  To make matters worse, all the stress is making her eat, and now she can’t fit into her wedding dress.

     Erin enlists the help of her cooking club--Angela, Megan and Kizzy--and the Teeny Bikini Diet Club is born.  The women make a pact to get slim enough to wear their bikinis to the lake by summertime, a pact that changes their lives forever.  With a little help from her friends, Angela faces her fear that her marriage is crumbling.  Megan confronts the self-esteem issues that have always held her back.  Kizzy deals with her husband’s efforts to sabotage her diet and keep her overweight.  And Erin learns some important truths about love.

     Pull up your favorite beach chair and savor this funny, inspiring story about being true to yourself and following your heart, and the women who enrich our lives.

My thoughts: This was a light-hearted, fun and quick read. It is the story of friendship and it reminds you that everything is easier to do, especially dieting, when you have your friends along side you. We are also reminded that dieting isn't always about becoming that size 0...sometimes it is for health reasons and sometimes it is for self-esteem. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more by Sheila Roberts!
