Book Review: Lost Ones

Lost Ones
Publication Date: July 10, 2012
3 Stars= Fair Page Turner

In Lost Ones by Zenobia readers are introduced to the Reid family, a family with secrets and bad habits. Katherine Reid has been putting up with her husband, Dexter’s infidelity for far too long. When Katherine learns of another one of his hidden secrets, she realizes it is time for her to starting thinking about herself and she knows just what to do. Dexter Reid knows he has dealt his wife an awful hand and Katherine deserves the truth. Dexter is just not sure if his wife will be able to handle the truth. I guess there is only one way to find out.
Dexter and Katherine’s daughters, Sasha and Taylor, are moving onto the college life. These twin sisters are like night and day. Taylor is pursuing a career in the medical field while maintaining her good girl status with her father. Taylor is not all that innocent and is easily persuaded. Sasha on the other hand, is the naughty twin who convinces her parents to send her to fashion school in New York. Sasha believes she is going to take the big apple by storm but is in for a big surprise. When Sasha starts looking for love, will she find it in the right place? Sasha’s track record is not looking so good. Will Sasha be able to change her ways?
Lost Ones is about a dysfunctional family. This book had drama, secrets and backstabbing that will keep readers attention. However, there were too many points of view, which made the transitions in the story confusing. I also felt some of the subplots could stand alone. Don’t get me wrong the characters were interesting and readers will be able to relate to them. I just wanted the story to focus more on Dexter, Katherine and their children. I would have liked to see Katherine’s sisters have their own book. I do recommend Lost Ones to others.
