Sass & Serendipity, by Jennifer Ziegler
Favorite things: the contrasting personalities of the two sisters, the love story which gave the book another layer without taking over completely, the name Mule (which is apparently short for Samuel and oh-so memorable), the descriptions (especially one of a pink dress that stands out in my mind), the lessons each sister were able to learn, the wildly different perspectives each one had on the same thing and the pace which kept me interested and allowed me to read this book rather quickly.
Criticisms: the character flaws each sister were given were a bit annoying and frustrating to read about, some things seemed so obvious that I wanted to shout through the pages for the girl to notice and pay attention and I personally didn't like the cover that much.
Overall: 5 out of 5 stars! This was a nice change from the paranormal and fantasies I've been reading lately. :)
Note: I was able to read this book as part of an ARC tour in exchange for my honest review. I did not pay for this book, however that did not affect my opinion or review in any way.
