Blog Tour + Book Review | Tinsel by Devney Perry (@devneyperry)


My Reviews: http://bit.ly/2Tm2NUG

Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled. People call her superficial, even gaudy.

She’s nothing more than tinsel.

Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned. Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love.



Sofia's brother and sister might have excelled in the business, but she decided to live a life of a princess. She had nothing to worry about, but what to wear and dress for the occasion. She already had two scandalous divorce and publicized breakup under her name, so a society magazine called her superficial and every other name in the book, it swept the rug off her feet and made her realize some things.

She's a TINSEL.

It's a good thing that Logan welcomed her to Montana when she decided to lay low and escape the city. Nothing is peaceful than Lark Cove. All she need is a relaxing weekend, until her sister-in-law decided to have an impromptu vacation and pushed her into working in a bar with Dakota Magee.

Dakota was happy on his own and didn't want to babysit a princess, even a very beautiful one. She proved herself a disaster, and a complete distraction. But he couldn't help but feel somewhat sorry for her, and now trying to make her feel better about herself.

Will a princess and a pauper work out?

If you have met Sofia previously, you wouldn't like her. I don't like her. Never did. She was an entitled brat, and that was my first impression of her. Oh boy, I was so wrong. Because our princess redeemed herself in TINSEL. 

If there's one thing TINSEL taught it's readers is that - people change. No matter how you think irredeemable the quality might be, there is always room for change. All it needs is a bit of support and push. Her changes weren't dramatically fast, oh no. It was gradual. Like an awakening, which felt real. Her realizations, and her sudden remorse to everything that she did. I love that Logan welcomed her, and that she was pushed to work alongside Dakota. 

Dakota wanted more from his life, and that itself is admirable. He came from a close-knit community where his bloodlines was important. They were comfortable, but not rich, and all he wanted to do was to succeed. He lived frugally and tried to invest wisely into real estate. Now if he can only swallow a bit of his pride, everything would work out just fine. 

Their relationship wasn't an easy HEA. It was a long journey. Up to a point where you'll say that only fate will know if they will be together in the end. They had their misunderstanding and their share of separation, but it the end, it was fate that brought them back together, and it was just amazing. When you are meant to be, you are really meant to be.

I enjoyed reading the story. I devoured it in one sitting, didn't have the heart to put it down. TINSEL, like it's predecessors, is stunning and compelling with characters you'd surely adore and root for.
