Review: Twirly Girl

For this review, I chose Twirly Girl by V.L. Locey.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Born into a prestigious and powerful political family, Venom captain Alicia Avery learned at a young age that appearances were everything. Alicia has now been molded into the perfect young woman; her only transgressions against the dictates of her parents to date are her dogged determination to play hockey and a rather radical new haircut. That was before Alicia met Dale Christie, a highly principled and deeply spiritual street performer who is raising his daughter, Wren Song, alone.

Now Alicia is finally opening her mind and heart to the knowledge that there is more to life than monetary success and ambitious goals. As her soul awakens, so does her desire for the man her parents - and society - would deem horrendously wrong for her. Can the Venom captain learn to walk a new path of serenity through life? Or will the pacifist and the hockey player be torn apart by a world that judges a person by the size of their bank account versus the largesse of their soul?

It is really great to be back with the ladies from Venom!!  This is book #2 and we are learning about Alicia Avery, who is the Captain.  Alicia grew up with a prestigious family and was taught to be her best.  Her parents think hockey is just a phase, but to Alicia, it is not a phase.  It is her passion.  Everyone should have a passion.  What will her parents think of the man, Dale Christie, she has met?  A street performer?  I do not think they would approve.  Dale has an adorable daughter, Wren, who has Down Syndrome.  Wren is in the Special Skates program.  

One of my favorite thing about this book is Down Syndrome is being highlighted.  Raising a special needs child is very rewarding.  Yes, it can be tiring, but worth every minute.

I can not wait to read more from this series!!  Great book once again!  Romance mixed with hockey, thinking about life and what you want from it, and a cute little girl, too!!
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
