“Some sisters love each other. Some sisters hate each other. Some sisters are jealous of one another. Some sisters don’t understand one another. Yes, having a sister can be complicated, especially if that sister is perfect while you’re totally the opposite and everything you do turns into a disaster.
THE OTHER MARLOWE GIRL, by Author Beth Fred, is the story of Kammy and her journey to discover who she really is. Kammy needs money and she needs it badly. She balks though at the things she has to do to get the money. Enter the handsome Enrique who seems to take a liking to Kammy, but who she knows would never care for a girl like her except for one thing. Not only must Kammy deal with the drug dealer who may kill her if she doesn’t pay up and the gorgeous hunk that she can’t help falling for even though she knows a relationship between them is hopeless, she has to deal with her sister, Tiffany, and her husband, who hates Kammy. Can her life get any worse? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out.
Beth Fred has created real-life characters that are far from perfect, living in a world that sometimes confuses them and how they deal with each situation, good or bad, they face. Misunderstandings, romance, family, and the importance of honesty blend together to make a quick read about a woman who thinks she can do nothing right and a man who sets out to prove her wrong. I recommend this short story for readers who love a good romance and for those that enjoy meeting a family that might be a lot like their own.
