I really enjoyed parts of this book, and others just seems to drag on. There was definitely a lot going on throughout. I loved the beach settings, especially the parts set in New Zealand.
Kit finds out that her sister Josie didn‘t actually die in a terrorist attack fifteen years ago like everyone thought, so she sets out to track her down. The story takes its time unrolling, but that‘s because there is backstory all throughout. I liked these characters and the New Zealand setting a lot, and the story kept my interest all the way through. I‘ll read more from this author; this was my first of hers.
I was on the struggle-bus for this entire book. I know a lot of people said they almost bailed, but then loved it. I stuck with it and was just disappointed.
I didn't connect with characters and their choices didn't make sense to me. The murder mystery seemed completely out of place in the story as well.

For now, it's time to move on to that next great book!
It wasn‘t what I was expecting, but it was still a great book. I thought it would focus more on the mystery of finding a sister thought to be dead, but rather it chronicles the events of the childhood of sisters through their very different eyes and the impact of the past on their current lives.
⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3 Stars
This book was sooo slow the first half. I almost gave up on it because it wasn‘t moving at all, and there‘s so much that was unnecessary. A little over halfway it began to pick-up and I started to enjoy it. Not an amazing book by any means, but I liked it.
Afternoon plans... I didn‘t finish out #BFCR2 as strong as I‘d have liked, but I‘m still happy with what I accomplished. I have definitely been walking more and looking for ways to get in extra steps, and I‘ve practiced yoga every day which is awesome - I tend to skip a couple days most weeks. I finished 3 books and I‘m in the middle of a couple of good ones (tagged book is ♥️ so far!). I hope all of #teamlitnfit had a fabulous last week!
When We Believed In Mermaids is a story centered around two sisters who are moving through life trying to run from the ghosts of their past.
If you‘re looking for a lighter summer read that is centered upon family drama and a slight dash of mystery, then I highly recommend this one to you!
Waiting for my two-day leadership workshop to start. The donut may have been a mistake but it was warm & drizzled with Wailea dark chocolate and there was local coffee so... Starting this Netgalley #ARC from an author I enjoy. Happy Tuesday. ☕️🍩📚
