Book Review: "Sealed With a Kiss" ("Holly's Heart," No. 3) by Beverly Lewis

Author: Beverly Lewis
Publisher: Bethany House
Published: 1993
Synopsis: Holly Meredith's life is a huge mess. Her mother wants to marry Mr. Tate, and uproot Holly and her younger sister Carrie in the process. Holly's pen pal Lucas believes that she is an adult and a published author; how will he react if he finds out she is actually a twelve-year-old girl? To complicate matters even further, Holly's mother is getting letters from some admirer, and neither she nor Mr. Tate are too happy about it. There's some very big surprises on the way for Holly-Heart...

Review: Usually, when I get into a series like this, my reviews say something to the effect of, "If you liked the previous books, you'll like ________...but, if you didn't, then you won't." That's also true with this novel...but it's slightly inferior to the others because of one part. One of the big surprises--hey, I'm not giving it away!--is talked about in a beat-around-the-bush way that sounds silly, even though pretty much anyone reading it would understand the meaning. That, in my opinion, is the lowest point of the series so far...but it's definitely not a "jump the shark" moment. I plan on continuing the series, as it makes for great reading material for a twenty-four-year-old kid like me.

Score: 3.75/5
