Admittedly, when I started ‘The Adventures of Pebble Beach’ I was a little unsure whether it was my type of book. The erotic scene and language that gets this book started, was not my usual type of read. However, I’m so pleased I continued. Pebble Beach is a great character. Although I sometimes wanted to slap her, I couldn’t help but love her. She’s in a very vulnerable time in her life; she is in her mid-40s, recently divorced and single mum to two teenage boys. She is working so hard to make a career for herself but there seems to be obstacles at every turn. Pebble has to go through certain situations to make her realise what is happening in her life and how she can make the changes. Once she starts to realise this everything starts to fall into place.
I loved the way Barbara Berger has created a mixed-up character that many women could relate too. I love even more how she develops a storyline that would help many women move forward in their own lives. There are quotes and advice that have been integrated into the story, I think this has been very well done. I think Barbara has created a very interesting novel that not only relates to real-life but gives great advice on finding oneself.
I give this novel 5/5. For anyone who loves chick-lit that has meaning 🙂
