Review:

Spring Fever by Mary Kay Andrews is a contemporary romance worthy of reading. The raw chemistry that flares between characters is great. Two families that have a controlling mother. A father who slept around…and fathered a child outside his marriage. An older son who takes responsibility far greater than he should. Another son who takes no responsibility at all. Two former lovers have had a lot on their plates…and their love for each other hasn’t died. But where their lives are headed is one intense journey. Love conquers all. Other themes like marriage, faith, and family are popular throughout this book. Another interesting twist was the rich and poor charcaters intermingled on every page. Friendship lasts a lifetime. 

Mary Kay Andrews brought to life a real world inside her novel, Spring Fever. The characters’ lives were troubled from day one. Drama, money, and family always got in the way. In the real world those same things change and alter people’s lives. I was addicted. The plot wasn’t a fairy tale. It was rough around the edges. Entertaining, well-told, and fascinating to follow. Spring Fever was believable in every way possible. Overall, I recommend to readers everywhere.

Review:

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews is a novel that dives deep into a family’s life and secrets. In the beginning, readers can feel the main female character’s stress and frustration and then her daughter’s rebellious stage makes for quite an interesting read. There’s a husband, who is found dead and his death being investigated by police. Then, there’s the house being foreclosed and a past love that comes tumbling into the picture. What should have turned out to be a fun weekend turned into more than the wife and daughter ever wanted…

Mary Kay Andrews has beautifully woven a story that drags readers in deep and holds them there. The Weekenders has everything readers could ask for in a novel. Family, intrigue, mystery, suspense, as well as romance, can all be found in this exciting new title. The plot is fast-paced and leaves readers guessing as to what, who, and why one man died as well as where that leaves the family he left behind…I enjoyed reading this story and following the characters as the scenes flew by and the action swept over me. Overall, I would highly recommend this novel to readers worldwide. Mary Kay Andrews has a talent that is brilliant and suspenseful.
