The Fate Of A Marlowe GirlThe Fate Of A Marlowe Girl by Beth Fred
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This story was a pleasant surprise for me.  First of all, I think this would be classified as a novella or short story--you will not invest a great deal of time in reading it.  It is less than 50 pages!  And usually I would mark a book down for being so short because most authors cannot write a well-developed story in such a limited number of pages.  But you see, I had never read Beth Fred before.  I believe this author is amazing!  She packed so much into a short story that I forgot I was not reading a regular romance novel.

The things I love about this book are quite numerous.  This book has it all--the upright, uptight older sister; the bad girl younger sister; the romantic hero; a beautiful Mexican setting; even a bit of mystery and chance meeting.  There are no sex scenes, and the profanity is practically nonexistent (if it is even there at all).  I loved the story, and I could see this becoming an actual full-length romance novel and not spoiling the charm of the story.  I love to see two characters with morals--it is so rare in this day and age.  And it never came across as being sappy.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
