Plain Choice

It's Friday!  Is everyone ready for the weekend?  It seems like we work more on the weekend than during the week.  You have to catch up on housework, errands, outside chores, etc.  Of course, all we really want to do is relax!  On April 22 in history . . . the first Earth Day is celebrated in 1970 (Happy Earth Day), Disney's Animal Kingdom opens at Walt Disney World in Kissimmee, Florida (near Orlando in the middle of the state), the 1964-1965 New York World's Fair opens for its first season, and in 1977 optical fiber is used for the first time to carry live telephone traffic. 

Plain Choice by Sarah Price is the fifth book in The Plain Fame series.  Amanda Diaz has returned home to her family’s farm in Lititz, Pennsylvania with her adopted daughter, Isadora.  The road is no place for a little girl.  However, she desperately misses her husband, Alejandra Dias also knows as Viper, the singer.  Alejandra misses Amanda, but he knows the road is not the place for her and the little girl.  After a while, though, Amanda knows that she needs to make things right between Alejandro and herself (she loves him too much to call it quits).  Amanda calls in a favor and rejoins his tour which is now in Europe.  Can these two work things out? 

Plain Choice finally wraps up The Plain Fame series.  This series went on way too long.  It could have easily wrapped up in two or three books.  I thought Amanda came across as a naïve (not innocent, more ignorant).  I was really not liking her.  There is no way any human being over the age of 16 can be that naïve (not in this day and age).  Amanda keeps saying she cannot do that because she is Amish, but she is no longer Amish.  She married an Englischer (an example would be driving and flying).  Plain Choice is simple and easy to read (good flow as well).  It, also, contains a good ending that I enjoyed (as will fans of the series).  I give Plain Choice 3 out of 5 stars.  It was okay, but not great.

Plain Choice is available on Kindle Unlimited (a great program).  The other book in The Plain Fame series are Plain Fame, Plain Change, Plain Again, and Plain Return.  These four books are currently on sale for $1.99 on Amazon and are available on Kindle Unlimited.  I received a complimentary copy of Plain Choice from NetGalley in exchange for an honest evaluation of the novel.

I am off to feed the cats and dogs.  I hope all of you have a great evening.  Enjoy yourselves!  Grimm is on tonight (such a wonderful show).  I am currently reading Bossa Novas, Bikinis, and Bad Ends by Mary McHugh (a lot of information on Rio but very little mystery).  Take care and Happy Reading!
