The Reel Sisters by Michelle Cummings

Post by crediblereading2 » 26 Mar 2018, 15:20

Although these friends are not reel sisters, they are bonded as real sisters by their playful companionship and their love for the hobby of fly fishing.

I just happen to bump into this book and I am very intrigued. i might give it a try even though it seems to me like it falls into the chick lit category.

From what I have read about this book, I could see a movie adaptation in the offing: mature hollywood movie stars probably?

You are correct, it probably does classify as chick lit, however I have had many male readers who have reported loving the book. Give it a try! ~Michelle Cummings

It is incredible to learn to find out that people can actually be bonded to such an extent by the love for a particular hobby. It is indeed as I have also witnessed that your workmates and classmates can at times actually be your closest family as there is a strong bond that happens during the course of interaction.
I would love to also read this book soon.

I love the idea of 'reel' and 'real' sisters. Books with strong female friendships are always intriguing. I would love to try this book!

Oh, no! Please not! Movie characters lack the thoughts and feelings that the book characters have.
