My Review (5 Stars: Loved it!)

Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley is a terrific debut novel.  It has the perfect amount of lightheartedness mixed with seriousness.

Two sisters decide to correspond thru actual physical handwritten letters. We know from the book blurb that these letters become inadvertently published on the Internet.

Cassie is a 36 year old mother of three-year old twin boys who lives in Manhattan.  She is full of self-doubt and insecurities, about for example, how to raise her children and whether or not she still attractive.  Her head is often buried in Facebook.

Cassie’s slightly older sister, Sid, living in Singapore, has her own, but different set of problems.  However, she is more at peace with herself.  She has little or no technical/computer experience.

Their candid letters back and forth are cringe worthy, knowing they are unknowingly being published for the world to see.

Of course, considering my blog title, how could I resist this title.

Bloggers, sisters and just about everyone else will enjoy this novel!

If your looking for a light beach read, this might be it!

First Paragraph

“Later–much later–I would regret pretending to be asleep when Leo sidled up to me in bed that night.  Not that it was an isolated incident; it’s just that the timing stands out as an apropos kickoff to what would be the year everything went pear-shaped.”

What Others Are Saying

  1. What an interesting premise! I think many of us reveal very different things when we think we are speaking (or writing) privately.
