Skipping a Beat

918kuBovu4L._SL1500_Having recently poo-pooed Sarah Pekkanen’s last title, Things You Won’t Say, I finally finished one of her older books, Skipping a Beat. I have had Skipping a Beat on my Kindle for a while. Even though it was a quick read, I kept putting it aside in favor of more appealing books that were arriving from the library. Since it was on my Kindle, though, whenever I had a moment of peace (waiting at gymnastics, waiting at the eye doctor, waiting during baseball warm-ups), I would pick it up again. The book was so light that I could remember where I was no matter what I else I was “really” reading. Consequently, it took me a long time to get through this one. Skipping a Beat was a little better than Things You Won’t Say, and it had a more creative premise about a husband and wife managing life, relationship, and wealth after he has a near-death experience. Clearly it was not compelling enough, however, to keep me moving or to put it ahead of other books. Sadly, I can’t even remember all the characters’ names at this point…which I suppose is not a ringing endorsement. Again, I keep hoping I’ll like Sarah Pekkanen’s books more than I do. Since she’s local, I have a soft spot for her. I suppose I’ll keep trying with the hope that something appealing will materialize.
