On Tour: The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow and a Giveaway Hop!

The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow
Paperback, 382 page; Kindle Edition
Expected publication: February 25th 2014
Publisher: Harlequin Teen

Savannah. Courtney. Peyton.

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.

My thoughts about The Secret Diamond Sisters ~~ 

Wow! How cool would it be to find out your father was a Las Vegas billionaire? But knowing that you, your sisters, and your mother struggled all those years without him and his money? That would be hard. And there would be lots of issues to work through and a lot of questions that would need to be answered.

Savannah, Courtney, and Peyton go to Vegas to live with their father, a father they knew nothing about, after their mother passes away. They are dropped into a totally different lifestyle from what they had been used to. But they are pretty much like most typical teenagers; they just want to have friends, have fun, and to fit in.

I love this story told from the concurrent viewpoints of all three sisters. Typically in a trilogy such as this, each book would mainly focus on one of the characters. We would see the world through their eyes. This book takes a look at all of the sisters and we get to see how they all act and react to the happenings around them. We really get to know all of the sisters at the same time.

Each sister has their own personality and I connected with parts of each one of them. I really did feel like I came to know them all and I am super excited to see where the next story takes us.

One line that really struck a nerve with me is this one ~
'Peyton didn't understand the concept of reading for fun. If a book was good enough, it would become a movie, and she could see it that way.'
Ahhhh! How can you not want to read for fun?!
