Blog Tour: Book Review - Family Pieces by Misa Rush

Family Pieces by Misa Rush
What do you do when your once charmed life falls to pieces? Karsen Woods' life seems charmed from her hunkalicious boyfriend to her picture-perfect midwestern roots. Away at college, even the necklace she wears serves as a constant connection home - a family tradition created when her grandfather handmade each immediate relative an interlinking charm. Each piece crafted in the shape of a puzzle piece, each one interlinking perfectly together. But when the unexpected death of her mother turns her world upside down, she discovers there is a missing piece of her treasured family tradition and her life as she once knew it may never be the same. Addison Reynolds resides in her posh Manhattan condominium and wraps her personal identity around running Urbane, the magazine empire built by her father. In a moment of haste, Addison divulges her deepest secret to her closest friend Emily - a secret she never intended to disclose. Could one choice, one secret, bond two unlikely women forever?

Karsen Woods is your typical college student with her class schedule, her workouts and her boyfriend.  She has nothing but great places to go in the world.  When her world is rocked by a phone call from her father, it seems this poor girl could not get a break.  I really enjoyed the book when it came to the characters and how Misa was able to really make each one their own.  The only thing that seemed to bother me a little about this book was HOW MUCH was going on at once.  I almost felt like some of the story's were never finished, and were put in there only to fill space.  At about 2/3 the way through the book I really felt like the story lines got better and I was able to really get involved in the book and the characters.  Over all I think it was a great book and definitely an easy read.  I would recommend this to someone to add to their summer reading list.  I will be looking for more from Misa Rush in the future.  Thank you to the everyone who gave me the chance to review this book.
