Book Review: The Song Remains the Same by Allison Winn Scotch

This is one of several amnesia books I've read recently.  It's about a woman named Nell who is one of two survivors of a plane crash.  In the crash she loses her memory and can only rely on what she is told by her husband, sister, and mother.  However, she soon begins to suspect that she is not being told the whole story by any of them. 

Writing
Nothing exceptional in either direction.  I feel like I say this a lot about books lately.  It's not that there's something wrong with the writing or that I have any specific criticisms, but it also wasn't anything to write home about.  It was standard fare.

Entertainment Value
Again, I feel like I should have more to say one way or the other on this one, but I just can't come up with anything.  It was average chick lit.  I think there were times when it dragged, for sure, but never enough to make me wish I wasn't reading it.  But it also never picked up to the point that I was anxious to get back to it at night. 

Overall
I think if you're a fan of chick lit it's worth checking out, but I wouldn't go into it expecting anything deep or particularly intriguing.  I've read better.

Thanks a million to TLC, as always for including me on the tour!
