Genre: Souhern Contemporary| Drama|Suspense.


I didn’t think it was possible for me to love the series more. I was wrong, Winter White, was an amazing book, and once I finishing I was eager for next book to come out. Belles is already one of my favorite series, it was unlike any other series I read this past year. Even if Winter White didn’t have nearly that much drama that first book had, it keeps you engaged. I found it nearly impossible to put down, I didn’t want to put it down, I felt connected with characters and needed to know what happens next. I’m eager for The Grass Is Always Greener, to see what adventures, drama, Izzy, Mira will come across.

Isabelle Scott and Mirabelle Monroe are still reeling from the revelation that they share more than just the roof over their heads. The media has pounced on their story, and while Izzie and Mira have each put on a happy public face, someone is leaking their true feelings to the press. It seems as if the world is watching their every move, but at least the girls have each other.
With cotillion season right around the corner, however, Izzie and Mira have barely had time to process their newfound sisterhood. Mira has dreamed of making her debut in a gorgeous white gown forever--now if only she had an escort... Izzy, meanwhile, is still struggling to find her place in Emerald Cove, which seems ever more impossible with EC mean girls, young and old, trying to keep her down. As cotillion preparations heat up, there are dance steps to learn, manners to perfect... and secret initiations to complete? It's time for the gowns to go on and the gloves to come off.

Title is amazing and totally goes with plot. Winter White, how can you not like a title like that? How can it not catch your attention? Even if I didn’t read the first book, the title would catch my attention. It fits the time period, southern period. The girl that’s on cover is another thing that captures your attention, but then how can they not? The girl looks stunning and it’s much easier for me, to imagine each of the characters. By looking at cover, I can imagine the characters, mostly the sisters. Since I could picture, I could connect with the sisters bit more.

Kellen & Brayden : I was glad that there was bit more romance, for both of the girls in Winter White. Ever since I read Belles, I was curious what’s going happen, to both Izzie and Mira, in romance department. I found myself more curious what’s going to happen with Brayden and Izzie now, if they were going become real couple, how everyone would respond to it. I was frustrated with Brayden for half of the book, way that he couldn’t seem to stand for himself, for izzie, when it came to his family. Fact that there was some things he wasn’t honest to her about, about dinner with Savannah’s parents and how he was escorting her at cotillion as well. How did he expect for his relationship with her to work, when he wasn’t being honest with her? I was as frustrated as Izzy with her and I couldn’t blame her for wanting to give up. Yet, at same time I was hoping that two of them would be able work out, despite way Brayden acted, I know that he really cared for her. When he escorted her at cotillion, it made me smile. Now that they worked things out, I am eager to find out what happens with them next. Kellen, he was hard to figure out at times, and at first I wasn’t even sure if he liked her, because she kept dropping hints but yet her was doing nothing. I didn’t know if he didn’t see them, get them or if he just wasn’t interested. But once he kissed her, I smiled, knowing that he liked her. Despite her blaming him for selling her painting, he still stood by her side. I was glad that Mira was able find someone, who would accept her for who she was, not judge.

Despite there being not that much drama in this book, like in last book. It still had quite bit of suspense within the book, mostly surrounding the campaign of Mira and Izzy’s father. As book progressed, I did find myself wondering how all those articles appeared about his family, and how they were appearing instantly. It’s like someone was watching them closely, spying on them. I was already suspecting that someone in the family was the traitor. Of course the least expected person ended up traitor, I would never suspected her, because she seemed so nice but guess that was her plan all along. That’s another thing I love about this book, the least expected twists come in this series, the ones that you don’t see it coming. Especially the end, now that was unexpected. It makes me wish that it was April so I can find out what happens next. It’s one of things that keeps you on reading, the twists, the suspense.

Top of the suspense, I felt like I also learned some things. Like Cotillion, I have heard of it before but never knew what it was before. I was fascinated reading about, especially with all the test everyone went through( Even if I am sure that doesn’t happen in real life). I was sure that Izzy would drop out within minutes but was glad that she stayed. I could see that Izzy and Mira’s relationship progressed within this book, they seemed to have more of a bond in this book. I’m eager to find out what adventure waits for them two next.

If you love suspense, drama, romance, be sure to pick this series up today. You’ll find yourself wondering what adventure awaits them next. One of the best series .
