Review: Tinsel - Vilma Iris | Lifestyle Blogger

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.

Tinsel
By Devney Perry

Review: Tinsel

In the last installment of this small-town series, a socialite finds purpose—and love—in Lark Cove, Montana.

Sofia Kendrick wasn’t known for her accomplishments. She led the privileged life of a Manhattan princess, with ambition and success doled out between her two siblings. Cocktail parties, shopping sprees, massages and makeup shaped her world, as did two failed marriages—both with men who never really loved her. Sofia was never more than tinsel for her family, and she never felt much more than that either.

But then a media scandal sends her reeling, truly questioning her worth.

“I’ve spent thirty-two years on this planet and have nothing to show for myself other than a no-limit Amex. I am nothing.”

Seeking escape and a little bit of comfort, she flees to Lark Cove, Montana to spend some time with her brother, Logan. Almost immediately however, Sofia finds herself with broom in hand, sweeping peanuts and working alongside a dark-haired bartender with a scowl on his face.

Dakota Magee has no time for this city socialite who’s had everything she’s ever wanted. He’s worked his entire life for the little he has, to make his family proud. But in the chaos of tears, broken glass and forced circumstances, he finds something in Sofia no one before him has seen—a spark of steel and determination he can’t ignore.

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

I didn’t pity her. But I was intrigued. I ached to get closer and solve her riddle.

I ached for her.”

Soon enough, they yield to their desire, but real feelings begin to complicate matters. They lived lives entirely divergent, lived in different cities. Despite the rightness of how everything felt, their future seemed entirely out of reach.

Both Dakota and Sofia struggle to define who they are, struggle to free themselves from familial prejudices. Sofia yearns to find purpose in her life, to be seen for more than the glittering guise she’s worn her whole life. Dakota, on the other hand, is torn between being the man his family expects him to be, and being the man he desperately feels he ought to be. Both must find it within themselves to follow their heart, or risk losing everything.

Devney Perry really delivers a story that’s intimate, profound, and at its core, relatable. It’s a stirring story of love and family, of finding the strength to pave your own path, come what may. Perry’s special brand of storytelling gets better and better, and I don’t plan on missing a single page of what’s to come.
