All The Difference - Book Review

All the Difference written by Kaira Rouda is described to be a chick lit, murder mystery, 
with three main characters: Ellen, Laura and Angie.


Ellen is a housewife, who leaves her home life behind, to be in the country with her husband, who has endless affairs with her.

Laura is a successful business women who wants nothing but moving up in her career and will do almost anything to make that happen.

And Angie is on the prow for her special man who wears shiny shoes and will scoop her off her feet with tons of money and luxuries.

Between the three, one takes the path of murder.


To be honest, I was highly disappointed with this book :( Which makes me sad because I absolutely loved Kaira's book Here, Home, Hope, I had high hopes for this one. I say it dissapointed me because I was expecting it to be more mysterious and on the edge. But instead, I feel like I was watching a soap opera, with all the drama and cheating. There were some sex scenes in the book, which I wasn't expecting, but was fine...I just didn't like the constant cheating that went on between marriages. It makes me so sad that, that is what sells now days. People cheating on the person they promised to love and cherish for the rest of their lives. I do not understand what makes people enjoy hearing about marriages failing and love falling apart. If you've read Here, Home, Hope, there's drama in that book too...which I tolerated because aside from that, the book was awesome! But this one, All the Difference, it was just too much for me. Several times, I wanted to put the book down and forget about it...But I just kept hoping it would get better. The characters were alive and I liked how it all pieced together in the end...but in whole, it will not be a book I recommend.




This post is made possible through Kaira Rouda in providing me a free Kindle Copy of her book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Sometimes I think it is hard to read about infidelity. It disappoints me and makes me sympathize with the person being cheated on. Good review.
