Sofia Kendrick has always cherished her tiara. As the youngest daughter of a wealthy New York family, she’s lived the life of an American princess. But after two scandalous divorces and a breakup smear her name across the society rags, the shine from her crown has dulled. People call her superficial, even gaudy.

She’s nothing more than tinsel.

Desperate for escape and starving for peace, Sofia heads to Montana for a holiday weekend with her brother. But she doesn’t get the relaxing vacation she planned. Instead, she’s put to work in a bar alongside Dakota Magee—a man who does not want her help. A man who is set on teaching her a few lessons about real life and hard work. But Sofia has a couple of life lessons of her own to teach. Like how to fall in love.

Megan’s Review

“Be bold.
Find your magic.
Chase the impossible.”

I have been a huge Devney Perry fan for a while now and her writing makes it so easy to absolutely adore everything she creates. Hands down Lark Cove is my favorite series and I have cherished each and every book. What I loved most about this series is the exquisite mountainous backdrop of the small town in Montana, that is very much a character in and of itself, and played such an important role in each and every book. Tinsel was positively breathtaking with the perfect balance of emotion, excitement and passion. Devney has produced yet another remarkable story with impeccable characterisations and a well-paced storyline that I felt deep within; it kept me fully invested until the very last word was read.

Sofia was born into an affluent family and while she never went without materialistic things, she went without the love and attention from her family and was always seeking approval from anywhere she could get it. Even as a young girl she never quite seemed to live up to her siblings and never felt important. Sofia’s father had high hopes for Logan and Aubrey and was grooming them to take over the Kendrick family empire, but Sofia, she could do whatever she wanted. I really felt for Sofia from the very beginning and had an undeniable connection towards her that both overwhelmed yet surprised me.

“She was an enigma. A puzzle. She was a woman who had everything in the world at her fingertips and yet seemed so… miserable and lonely. She seemed so lost.”

When a media scandal hits, it paints a very unflattering picture of Sofia and she decides it’s time for an escape. She decides visit her eldest brother Logan, in the picturesque town of Lark Cove, Montana. Soon Sofia is dealt with some harsh realities and lessons in life that will ultimately change the way she perceives the world.

Sofia is someone who has never worked a day in her life, where money is no object. Thea (her sister-in-law) and Logan have decided to take a vacation and Sofia gets thrown completely in the deep end when she discovers she will be working in her bar while they are vacation.

Dakota Magee is the bartender and an incredibly hardworking man, he is unlike any man Sofia has encountered before in her life. While they are two different people from two different worlds, their struggles and family issues are very much the same and as a result, yields a powerful connection between the two.

“There had to be a way. We’d touched one another’s lives, leaving permanent marks neither of us would ever erase.
If this didn’t work out, if we couldn’t find a way, I’d never be the same.
Neither would he.”

Tinsel brought on the most intense feelings imaginable; I laughed, I cried, I agonised and I empathised. What started out as harmless flirting soon escalated into a powerful love affair where their feelings for each other were deep and intense. Unfortunately their love for one another is not a lay down mesire; there are a number of hurdles and opinions for them to overcome before they can live happily ever after.

Devney Perry has written a compelling and meaningful story that really touched my heart and soul. I drank in every beautifully written word and felt every emotion that was carefully scripted on these thought provoking pages. Perry has showcased time and time again that she is a true talent, an artist. Her books should be read and devoured by any lover of romance.
