#151: Silver Girl - Elin Hildebrand

Meredith Martin Delinn just lost everything: her friends, her homes, her social standing - because her husband Freddy cheated rich investors out of billions of dollars.
Desperate and facing homelessness, Meredith receives a call from her old best friend, Constance Flute. Connie's had recent worries of her own, and the two depart for a summer on Nantucket in an attempt to heal. But the island can't offer complete escape, and they're plagued by new and old troubles alike. When Connie's brother Toby - Meredith's high school boyfriend - arrives, Meredith must reconcile the differences between the life she is leading and the life she could have had.
Set against the backdrop of a Nantucket summer, Elin Hilderbrand delivers a suspenseful story of the power of friendship, the pull of love, and the beauty of forgiveness.

My Opinion:
I wish this had been a paperback or hardcover instead of an audiobook, as I feel I absorb more when I see the words.
With that said, the audio didn't deter me from loving it! I found myself stopping what I was doing to give the cd player my undivided attention. No other audiobook before this has had that effect on me.
I loved that Richard Castle was a character in the story too. In case you don't recognize the name, he is an author and also a character on tv in the self titled show, Castle. I couldn't help picture the actor that plays him when his character was mentioned.
I really like Meredith, she's a cool girl. I'd love to read more of Meredith and Connie as they were great characters and I felt like they were women that I already know. Very familiar personalities.
I also want to say I love where the title of the book comes from. Now you'll hate for this, but I refuse to say why, except you HAVE to red the book to find out! I don't want to spoil it.


4/5


Recommend?
Yes, but get a print copy.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers.

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners. You Want to Be a Credible Source of InformationWhen you put content out on the web, you want it to be either entertaining or useful – ideally both.
