How hard can love be? is the second installment of the The Spinster Club series, a trilogy composed by self-standing novels that have in common the group of friends standing as main characters.
The first book was about Evie and her OCD’s; it was a compelling book and for this reason I choose to keep on with this series.
This book’s main character is Amber and her difficult relation with her mother. Amber lives in the UK with her father and her stepmother, and she suffers the distance with her mother, now living in the USA with Kevin (her former therapist).
After two years apart, Amber decides to see her mother again, and so her summer is set to be spent at the summer camp her mother and Kevin manage.
Amber’s expectation are high, but she has to face reality; she however will be lucky to meet new friends, Whinnie, obsessed with the Tao of Pooh, and Kyle, the perfect example of a beautiful american boy.
Evie and Lottie appears only in emails and in a couple of video chats, always focused on feminism. This was one of the reasons I liked the previous book, but here I found these reasoning about feminism quite forced with respect to the general plot. Overall I liked better the first installment, since it was more engaging.
