The Not-So-Ugly Stepsister Gets Her Guy by Edwina Darke is a romantic comedy perfect for a pleasant laugh. Cyn and Dani, both veterinary and medical doctors respectively, were stepsisters who loved each other to bits. The downside was that while Cyn was drop-dead gorgeous, Dani was barely noticeable, according to her. However, what she lacked in beauty, she possessed in wit and intelligence. One day, Dani crashed Cyn’s date with Dr. Juan at her invitation. Juan was Cyn’s colleague who had the hots for her until he met Dani. He fell for her and one date turned into many. How could he tell Dani that he was in love with her when he first went for her sister? Find out how Juan dealt with his dilemma.
The Not-So-Ugly Stepsister Gets Her Guy helped me with a good dose of humor. It was very interesting, short, and punchy. I loved the plot, which was playful, yet conveying a message that we are all relevant. No matter what we think of ourselves, there’s someone somewhere that gets us. And if there isn’t, believe that you’re enough. The characters were relatable because they were representative of people we meet every day. I loved the way Edwina navigated the topic of self-esteem in a lighthearted manner. The writing style, which incorporated heavy doses of sarcasm, witty remarks, and emotion-laden scenes, gave the book quality and depth. In the end, we should never settle because the best is yet to come. Edwina Darke should write more books like this!
