[Review] Sparkelicious by Libby Floyd

About the Book:  Laney Montgomery is a successful Southern-born fashion designer living in Los Angeles but when she turns 40, her world suddenly turns upside down. While reconnecting with her family in South Carolina, she discovers the lives of her mother and two older sisters are in disarray. But while trying to fix them, Laney learns that her own marriage is in serious trouble back in California. The affections of a younger man don’t help matters either as Laney must fix everyone else before she can find true happiness for herself.

My Review:  Laney, who lives in LA, goes home for a visit with her family, back in the south, and boy does she walk into a load of drama.  Not only is Laney dealing with her families drama, but her husband back home is a jerk.  She meets a nice young guy who'd love to be more than a friend by Laney loves her husband.  Laney finds out her marriage isn't everything she thinks it is.  Will she be able to figure out her own issues with the chaos of her family?

I really enjoyed Sparkelicious.  I love books set in the South.  Libby's writing is really well done, and kept my interest.  I really felt an emotional connection to the characters and the situations that they were going through.  I think the book was fun in places, but it also had some dark moments.  Overall, it was paced well, and I would read more by Libby Floyd.
