Overall, I thought that this book was a wonderful story of friendship, love and connecting over a really different hobby. This book will be getting a 4 star rating from me.

The dialogue made me cringe just a bit. I did not finish reading it.

Latest Review: The Reel Sisters by Michelle Cummings

I'm late to the party here, but I have to agree with BookishCreature. I just finished The Reel Sisters last night and wrote my review this morning. I thought the book could have been something that left the reader feeling warm and fuzzy and with a new interest fly fishing, but the execution was lacking. I feel that BookishCreature really nailed it with "awkward dialogue, the childish behavior of the grown women in the story, and the lack of overarching conflict in the plot". I feel a little embarrassed because so many of the reviews seem to be positive, but try as I might I can't seem to share the perspective of those reviewers. I so wanted to enjoy this book.

I haven't read this book yet, but I've read the review. The theme and the plot sound interesting and it also carries a tone of gender equality. I will go for this book.
A joke is to entertain people. If it fails to do so, it's something else!

I went into this thinking I wouldn't like it, but I didn't read the last couple "book of the month's" so I wanted to jump back into it. I LOVED this story. I enjoyed the way the characters became "real" friends as they "reeled" in the fish. The ways they shared their lives with each other were endearing. I was so incredibly sad in the end. I did not see that coming at all. I highly recommend this story to those who like to connect with their friends.
I’m reading this now! So glad to see so many good reviews!!
