The Dinner ListThe Dinner List by Rebecca Serle

Unique, wistful & magical!

Such an imaginative premise that will have you asking yourself if you could invite five people living or dead to a dinner party who would you choose?

THE DINNER LIST by REBECCA SERLE is a wonderful, captivating, touching, fun and light-hearted tale that I was immediately drawn into and devoured rather quickly.

REBECCA SERLE delivers an intriguing, engaging, complex and well-written story here told in short alternating chapters to make this a quick and easy read. The story was filled with diverse and unique characters, an enchanting and delicious setting, and a heartfelt and insightful storyline.

Although, I really enjoyed this one and I was swept right under its spell the drama wore me down a little bit. Sabrina has some issues here that she is dealing with and a lot she is confronting from her past. Normally I welcome a lot of drama in my novels but for some reason it became a little exhausting and suspecting one of the twists was a little disheartening lessening the impact of the pivotal moment for me.

The storyline definitely had me dreaming and pondering which five guests I would choose and wouldn’t it be fun if fantasy just became reality.
