Ripple the Twine by Jenn Flynn-Shon

Jenn Flynn-Shon is on tour with CLP Blog Tours and Ripple the Twine. Sara Quinn, a sportswriter, is invested in her career and earning the respect she knows she deserves. While being focused on her writing and sports, she decides she needs a much needed break from the dating world. But just when she decides to give her love life a timeout, she is introduced to Ben – and she starts to question her self-imposed break. But around that same time, her friends start to go through some difficult situations, and Sara wants to be there for them. She spends so much time worrying about her friends that she doesn’t have time anymore for Ben – but in the process of helping, she also finds healing. Learning to come to grips with her emotional past, Sara finds the strength and support from herself and her friends, and finally thinks she finds the path to happiness.

I’m big sports fan, and I actually used to work at a hockey arena, so I’m always up for a hockey story! I really enjoyed the hockey lingo that is mentioned before each chapter, even though I thought I knew a lot about the game, I learned even more while reading! I liked Sara’s character and how she was so quick to help her friends, and the supporting cast was just as fun to read about. Sometimes I thought the story was a bit too telling and not enough showing, and there was a lot of “Sara did this” “Sara did that” moments that were a bit distracting to me, but overall I enjoyed this debut novel!

    Thanks Jenn! I love almost all sports, but have a soft spot for hockey due to my previous job 🙂
