Book Review

SEX AND THE SOUTH BEACH CHICAS
by Caridad Piñeiro

Genre: Mainstream, Chick lit

RT Rating

With a tropical setting, many mojitos, a dash of intrigue and plenty of romance, this book is perfect for a day at the beach. Although the tone is light, Pineiro does a good job of giving each character a complete story arc. Although at times the plotlines are a little predictable, Pineiro is ultimately successful in presenting a fresh and enjoyable picture of four completely different friends trying to balance their lives as modern women with the demands of their more traditional Latin families.

Adriana, Tori, Sylvia and Julie are lifelong friends, balancing careers, men and difficult mothers in sunny South Beach. Although each has achieved a modicum of career success, they all feel that something is missing.

When Tori, the least impulsive of
the group, falls blissfully in love and elopes, it serves as a catalyst for each
of these feisty Latinas to drop their defenses, take some chances, and,
with a little help from their friends, write their own happy endings.
