BOOK REVIEW - Silver Girl

My thoughts on Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand

I love discovering new writers. Let me rephrase that by saying, 'new writers to me', because often they are not new to the writing game, I have just never read any of their books previously. That is the case with my latest read, Silver Girl by Elin Hilderbrand.

Silver Girl
Silver Girl looks like a typical "beach read" from the cover with a slim blonde gazing out over the ocean, but delve into the pages and you'll find more than just a book about romance, or lust, or summer flings. Silver Girl is one of those stories that grabs hold of you and moves you forward. It's an engaging story of a wife, Meredith Martin Delinn, entrenched in her husband's ponzi-scheme outing to the public, reminiscent of the Bernie Madoff scandal. She finds her rich lifestyle gone, friends gone, and the FBI targeting her as being involved in the scandal. So she must escape, and escape she does, to Nantucket and a friendship that had been torn apart by the ponzi-scheme long before its illegal nature was revealed to the world. I found myself escaping as well, to this world every opportunity I got, and being thankful that I was not Meredith when I put the book down. 

I highly recommend this Adult Fiction, summer beach read! And thanks to the friend who recommended it to me, and let me borrow her copy. :)
