Fun, fun, fun! That’s exactly what I thought when I finished reading Shoe Fetish 2: Grown Into High Heels, the new book by authors Sharon Bennett and Beatrice Moore. Mainly following the story of primary character Carmen, as she wends and wields her way through her relationships with men even as she harbors a huge distrust of them and their secrets, the story also explores the intricacies of female friendship and the love of shoes. The story will have you laughing in parts, and will also have you tearing up, it's just a perfect work of women's fiction. Will Carmen be able to progress through her issues and come out on the other side as a happier and more complete person? You'll need to read the book to find out!

I so enjoyed Shoe Fetish 2: Grown into High Heels. I picked this book up with the intention of reading just a few chapters before falling asleep. Well, that was a mistake as I found myself, bleary-eyed, finishing the last words way too late that same night! Authors Sharon Bennett and Beatrice Moore have done a great job in creating characters that their readers will connect with, relate to and truly care about. If those aren't the traits of great authors, I'm not sure what are. This book is intensely readable and any person who enjoys women's fiction, or just a great book in general, should definitely grab this book! I highly recommend Shoe Fetish 2: Grown Into High Heels, and I certainly hope that the talented authoring duo of Sharon Bennett and Beatrice Moore are already hard at work on their next project. If it's anything like this, it will definitely be worth the read!
