K.L. Montgomery’s Romance in Rehoboth Boxed Set (Books 1-3) includes Fat Girl, The Flip and Plot Twist. I’ve read of the books within this set and each was thoroughly enjoyable – highly recommend. Here’s a summary of my thoughts of each of these books in this boxed set.
Fat Girl, by K.L. Montgomery, is Claire Sterling’s story. She is almost 40, divorcing her husband, moving back home, and veering back into the dating scene via online. However, she fears that she will always be a fat girl.
Most of us can relate to this story in some shape or form. We have all looked in the mirror at one point and seen ourselves as others do, some piece of disappointment in ourselves. A failed marriage with a cheating ex-husband and now being a single mom venturing back into dating trying for a new relationship. Insecurities abound and trying to find a way to respect herself and love herself inside and out.
K.L. Montgomery touches on real life issues. It is in your face, right there in front of you, in black and white on the pages. Claire’s character definitely has many roadblocks in her life that she has to knock down, move around or avoid. She’s courageous to move into dating at a later age and the unknowns of whether a person is truthful or hiding something. There were many times in the midst of reading this story that I wanted to sit right next to Claire and ask her what would you tell me… and then, don’t you think you should do the same for yourself?
Fat Girl offers several laughable moments. If you aren’t quite sure on your next book to read, I would recommend this book as everyone should be able to relate to some piece or part of this story.
The Flip, by K.L. Montgomery, is the second book in the Romance in Rehoboth series. This romantic comedy features Andrew and Sonnet with their relationship shifts from that of high school dynamics of dislike to something that changes in a way neither of them anticipated.
The characters are well developed and I felt that their chemistry flowed smoothly and was not forced. I honestly enjoyed their antics in the story. This author does a good job in their writing for this series/story. I did previously read Fat Girl, the first book of the series. The Flip was as good as the previous book and I loved the characters of Andrew and Sonnet. K.L. Montgomery is great at romantic comedies and kept me on my toes and laughing through this novel. The story was addictive and a true page turner.
K.L. Montgomery’s Plot Twist is the third novel in the Romance in Rehoboth series. The author overlaps several characters that appeared previously in the series in subsequent books as supporting cast members. I enjoyed how these characters overlapped between books. Within Plot Twist, the main cast includes Meric and Lindy; this romantic comedy has all the major elements, to have you laughing to wiping stray tears, to wondering what in the heck that last conversation was?! The build up in this story was well paced and created allure and intrigue into possibly where the author was planning to take these main characters and when they would peak and/or plummet. The story was fun, inspirational, and everything in between.
