The Happy Accidents by Jamie Beck

Digital Reads Reviews is a blog-haven for book posts and tech tips. This is a review of a woman's fiction.

Blurb

While at a casino to celebrate her birthday, Jessie Clarke proposes a pact to her reserved sister, Liz, and their childhood friend Chloe: the three women will say yes to any adventure that comes their way.

Jessie is mourning her recent divorce, so the other two reluctantly agree.

Twelve hours later, they awaken to the shocking consequences of their behavior.

A viral video throws Liz’s career and reputation into question.

A major loss at the craps table rocks the foundation of Chloe’s staid marriage.

And Jessie’s desperate bid to unblock her artistic creativity results in a life-changing choice.

Staring down the crossroads, each woman finds her relationships—with herself, with each other, and with loves both old and new—tested.

At every turn, they struggle not to let fear decide their fates.

Will they give in, or will their misadventures lead to the greatest fulfillment of all?

My Review

What was it all about

The Happy Accidents by author Jamie Beck was about three friends, who made a pact and found themselves dealing with the consequences of that one night when they let go of all their inhibitions. 

The story was all about friendship, family, and love. Things that defined us as human beings. 

How it made me feel

Courageous and inspiring were the two words that came to mind when I thought back about this book.

The positivity in the book and the bonds of friendship had me longing to be a part of these ladies.

The Good

The writing. Filled with real characters and oodles of emotions all of which I could identify with, the book had that elusive quality that I loved in a women’s fiction. The ability to stay hooked to the story, despite the world moving on its axis. 

The warmth of friendship between the ladies, even when they were put out with each other, made me glad to know each of them.

The growth shown in dealing with the fallout of their one night of forgetting their responsibilities was realistic. I could see myself in them. Though I had never become viral on social media over a video. 

The Bad

Best friend, Chloe, needed more pages on the book as I felt the other two got the major share. Chloe was actually stronger than the two as she was managing without life without a safety net. I would have liked to know her more. 

The story might seem formulaic, but the treatment given to it was refreshing. 

The Conclusion

Though this book didn’t evoke so many of my passions, but I rated it higher because it caused my heart to actually feel light after reading it. 

Down the book, the women had become my friends, so to see them find their paths in life was inspiring. Hope, tiny bubbles of it, burst through me for myself and my life when I read the book. 

I loved it
4.5/5
