Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla – Review by Lisa Helmick

Beau and BettBeau and Bett by Kathryn Berla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is loosely set along the Beauty and the Beast storyline. Although the roles are reversed here. I really didn’t see the Beast come out via dialogue or actions. Bett was a surprise to me. I expected her to be snotty, uptight and ungracious. She is none of those things. Beau was a nice guy and he was always looking at the good side.

I wish there waS more on his family that we are introduced to in the beginning. They all seemed so interesting. The chapters were very short and I felt the story moving along quickly that way. There did seem like a bit much of the second by second on some things. I wonder if it could have been glossed over to move the storyline along. This will be a good read for teens.

Kathryn Berla Beau& Bett

This book is one of the best I’ve read in a long time. You get sucked into the characters lives and immediately fall in love. The Beauty and the Beast premise is normally tired and overdone, but this was written to perfection. The story clipped along at a good pace with enough hurry up and wait that you could REALLY feel Beaus plight. So many little side stories incorporated without a flaw. I am so hoping there’s a sequel coming! I can’t wait to read more about these characters and see their development. Well done. 5 stars.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

BEAU AND BETT is a quick, multi-layered read that is labelled as a “retelling” of Beauty and Beast. While it does have some resemblance to the original fairytale, it absolutely stands in it’s own and I think it can be read by any ages reader.

I recommend this story.

Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla
4 Stars!!!!

I like how the author has spun a classic tale and modernized it. The author really brings a refreshing twist to the tale and just grips the reader’s attention. The characters are also realistic. The story just flows off of the pages.

I found myself really routing for Beau as I could relate to him. I also found it refreshing that he in the
sense was Beauty and that the Beast was Bett. I found the author’s use of the female character for the beast to be unique and really made the story. I found myself on the edge of my seat to see how the story would end as they truly came from two different worlds and I like how they end up merging together. The author did a good job at making her characters realistic and enjoyable. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beau and Bett by Kathy Berla is a modern day version of Beauty and the Beast. Although the book follows and old story line the author does well to put her own stamp on it with the switch round of characters.
Beau and Bett were a good match. They paired really well together and worked for this type of story.
The whole story was well paced and provided great progression- both character wise and story wise. It was an easy read that was fun and entertaining.

By: Kathryn Berla
5 out of 5 stars

The story Beau & Bett by Kathryn Berla is a YA/coming of age book. It is a story that I really enjoyed reading. Not only is the story interesting and entertaining I really loved reading about the characters of Beau and Bettina. Beau finds himself on her farm when he works there to pay off a debt. Bettina seems to always find him on the ranch. Is Beau starting to fall for her? Read this book to find out their story. I enjoyed the dialogue and interactions between Baud and Bettina. The story had me hooked from the very beginning and I found that I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished it. I grew to care about Beau and Betting with every chapter that I read. There are moments that are touching. Don’t miss out on a story that has wonderful characters. I highly recommend reading it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a cute young adult story that reads like a modern day fairytale. I enjoyed this from start to finish. Bett and Beau meet because of an accident. When Beau is sent to work of damages, it could be he may find a little more than work. Bett is a hard girl that there is so much more to her behind the roughness. Beau starts falling for her but the problem is her lies. I enjoyed watching their characters grow throughout. I highly recommend reading their story to find out if there is a HEA.

Beau LeFrancois’ mother never saw the accident coming, and she certainly never imagined the problems that come with wrecking Bett Diaz’s luxury SUV. Fortunately, no one was hurt but the car needs extensive repairs, and she also must pay for the damage to the other car. The problem is, the LeFrancois family is going bare—unable to even afford car insurance.

Beau volunteers to work off the debt at the Diaz Ranch. What he isn’t prepared for is Bett Diaz. Bett is known as ‘The Beast’ at their school because of her bad temper, Beau approaches the job with caution and vows to stay away from the boss’s daughter. However, Bett has other plans—bored and friendless, she finds excuses to shadow Beau whenever he’s at the ranch. After hours spent in her company, Beau learns the secrets behind Bett’s tough exterior and finds himself falling for her. That is, until he catches Bett in a lie.

The Kitty Commitee: A Novel of Suspense by Kathryn Berla – Review by Amber Lange

The Kitty Committee: A Novel of SuspenseThe Kitty Committee: A Novel of Suspense by Kathryn Berla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kitty Committee: A Novel of Suspense by Kathryn Berla is a suspenseful read full of secrets and mysteries. It kind of reminded me of mean girls with Carly as the “Regina George” of the book. It was kind of a slow start but it was also interesting. It’s a well written book about the power of friendship and how some friendships can just be catastrophic. Carly’s mannerisms and need to control were interesting and honestly one part of the story I found especially interesting. It just really makes you think about people and how different we all are. And how we all think. Overall I enjoyed it and would read other books by Kathryn. 4 star rating.

The Kitty Committee: A Novel of SuspenseThe Kitty Committee: A Novel of Suspense by Kathryn Berla
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Kitty Committee is a suspenseful tale written by Kathryn Berla. It was mysterious and entertaining. The story was a little slow going for me, at first. But once I
I got into the swing of it, it was really enjoyable.

Grace and her not so nice group of friends, The Kitty Committee, share a secret. A secret that has played on Grace’s mind for year, leading to unrest and unfulfilling relationships. It was great witnessing it all unfold and how it ended. Many moments of suspense and intensity made this novel hard to put down. The dynamic of women and their propensity to bicker and put each other down instead of propping a fellow girl up, was evident in this story. An engaging story that would suit lovers of the twisty and unusual. 4 stars
