Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye. This week, all three are samples that have been on my Kindle for years.
The Proposal by Tasmina Perry
Summary: Heartbroken Amy answers ad requesting a companion for a mysterious ‘Manhattan adventure’. She travels to New York with eccentric aristocrat Georgia Hamilton, who schools Amy in the art of old-school elegance.
I’m thinking: No – it’s a chick-lit style thing.
Cartwheel by Jennifer Dubois
Summary: Lily Hayes arrives in Buenos Aires for a semester abroad. Five weeks later, her roommate, Katy, is found brutally murdered. Lily is the prime suspect.
I’m thinking: Maybe… this is a ‘fictitious’ Amanda Knox story, right?
The View on the Way Down by Rebecca Wait
Summary: The story of Emma’s two brothers – the one who died five years ago and the one who left home on the day of the funeral and has not returned since.
I’m thinking: Yes, I like the writing style.
