Blog Tour: Sole Sister by Brooklyn James

It's the book fans have been waiting for: Kat's story is finally here! As the second instalment in the Boots My Mother Gave Me series shifts focus onto the younger of the LeBeau sisters, readers are sure to find themselves once again enthralled and moved by Brooklyn James and her wonderful storytelling.

Blurb: The second book in The Boots My Mother Gave Me series, Sole Sister picks up several years later, continuing the story of Harley LeBeau and her rebellious sister Katrina ‘Kat’ LeBeau. Relocating to Nashville to be closer to Harley and Miah, Kat aspires to launch her Sole Sister fashion line. A gutsy and impromptu plan suddenly lands her on the cover of The Ville Spill—the local celebrity gossip rag—alongside country music’s latest heartthrob, giving Sole Sister the push it needs. But Kat quickly learns that not all press is good press. Years removed from an abusive childhood and teenage pregnancy, the past that Kat never talks about continues to seep into her life and relationships. Still struggling with the images of finding her father after his suicide, Kat forges ahead, vowing to avoid past mistakes. To focus on her career and responsibilities as a single mother, she swears off the disappointments of love. The first man she ever loved, her father, broke her heart. The first boy she ever fell in love with, her daughter’s father, broke her heart. What Kat didn’t plan on was Nashville SWAT Officer Connor Reese. She and Connor have more pulling them together than keeping them apart. Kat finds herself in familiar territory when her plan to steer clear of heartache is derailed after spending a night in his arms. Will facing her past help to secure her future? Will Connor offer her a second chance at life and love? Or will her heart break yet again? Staying true to its predecessor, Sole Sister explores the dynamics of strength in sisterhood, the ongoing conflict and unconditional love between mother and daughter, and the courage to become more than one’s past.   

Review: Sole Sister is the sequel of The Boots My Mother Gave Me and even if I was told that it could be perfectly read as a stand-alone I have to admit that I didn't feel that way. There's a lot of background information that I was missing from Kat and her sister's, Harley, difficult up bringing that I think was quite important to easily follow the new story and understand them ever. I mean, the author gives you quite a lot of information to fill the blanks and I did not feel lost reading it but the general feeling I got is that I would have enjoyed the book a lot more if I had read the first book first.

Apart from that, I liked the book, especially Cat and her relationship with Connor. He really was book boyfriend material, gorgeous, noble, a good father and such a gentleman. He was all Cat deserved.

The story is really full of drama and twists and turns. For a moment there I even thought it was a bit too much. But it's true that the book had a depth I was not expecting but enjoyed. It handles very serious topics with care and respect and it was really interesting to read about Cat facing her demons and how the author wrapped it all up.

Harley, Cat's sister, and her husband Miah also play a big part in the story and I started to like them a lot. I am curious to know more about their story and I'm sure I'll pick the first book sometime soon to see exactly how they met and what they went through. 

Rating: 3,5/5
