Cherry Crush

By: Cathy Cassidy

Book 1 of the Chocolate Box Girls

Cherry lives with her dad and is often isolated and in trouble because of the lies she tells. When her dad falls in love again she is happy to move to Kitnor and start a new life and maybe, just maybe become part of a family because her dad’s new girlfriend has four girls of her own. Cherry tries to fit in, she tried not to lie and tries very much not to fall for the one guy who is very definitely off limits.

Cherry is a character that is a little sad, her past is filled with sadness, her school life wasn’t great and she feels as though she has to create stories in order to fit in. The new life at Tanglewood Cottage offers her hope. As alwasy though the stories get away from her. The other sisters are wonderfully unique personalities and except for Honey are very welcoming. Honey, like Cherry has plenty of her own issues going on and it will be interesting to read her story as this is the first in a series of each of the girls. This is a fun read about the ups and downs of blending a family. It is not all hearts and flowers and it is not all terrible, in that respect I would guess it’s fairly normal. Cassidy has done a good job introducing the characters and painting a very realistic kind of family portrait.

Quite a pleasant read.
