Scarlet Feather by Maeve Binchy
Author: Maeve Binchy
Other Books in this series: None
Summary: Cathy Scarlet and Tom Feather are best friends and co-owners of the catering company Scarlet Feather. This book chronicles a year. From New Years Eve to New Years Eve. Together Cathy and Tom show their friendship is strong enough to withstand heartbreak, breakups, confusion, evil mother-in-laws, a crazy pair of twins, and so much more.
Review: I LOVE Maeve Binchy, but this was not one of my favorites. It was good, but just kinda... blah. The romance in it was unsatisfactory. Like you didn't like the couples.
Cover Rating: 2/5
Comments on the Cover: It's kind of boring. It's... just a red door and a brick building. I feel like there were so many more possibilities for this book cover. And they chose a red door.
Character Comments: The characters were well-written, but they got tedious after a while. Once in a while, you really just wanted to smack them a few times.
Favorite Character: Tom and the Twins. Tom's such a great guy and the Twins... well, I really can't say much for them.
