Reading: The Brown Sisters by Talia Hibbert

This is the series that made me realize I was autistic, pushing a long-coming revelation from denial to reality. A fluffy, predictable romance novel trilogy with cute characters with depth to them.

Summary & Thoughts

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

Get a Life, Chloe Brown

Get a Life, Chloe Brown is the first book in the Brown sisters trilogy by Talia Hibbert. I read it after reading book two and three of the series. When I read the second book, Take a Hint, Dani Brown, I didn't know it wasn't a standalone.

Chloe brown is a chronically ill woman who happens to suffer from the same disease as me: fibromyalgia. I found her account of living with a chronic pain illness eerily accurate and relatable. I could identify with Chloe a lot, but also with Red and his trauma. Beautiful characters, cute details, enjoyable writing.

Take a Hint, Dani Brown

The story here is nothing new. It's probably as cliché as romance novels get:  a woman with commitment issues pretends to date an anxiety-ridden guy, and they fall in love. However, the writing style of Talia Hibbert with relatable, quirky characters makes up for what the plot lacks.

Act Your Age, Eve Brown

Following the youngest of the Brown sisters, this story is no less predictable than the first two, but it's again the characters that make up for it. Eve gets an ultimatum from her parents and runs away. She comes across a bed-and-breakfast where she meets Jacob. Through his autism, she learns about her own. And, well, I figured it out alongside her.
