The odds of giving birth to identical quadruplets: 1 in 13 million.

The population of Fairview, a town where all anyone talks about is the Fairview Four’s return after fourteen years: 47,327.

The chance of Reagan meeting a guy who sees her as one of a kind: better than she thinks.

Following in her sisters’ footsteps—and, all too often, their shadows—is nothing new to Reagan.

I requested this because the blurb said "Gilmore Girls meets Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." Well, that was probably way too much to hope for. This is the story of quadruplets who are returning to their mom's home town as teenagers. Besides that, I'm not really sure...

While the part of this is I read was well-written and very sweet, it just lacked the edge and sense of purpose I need in a book. In the past, the quads were in a

Four of a Kind was a decent contemporary read and was overall a quick and fast read. I did thoroughly enjoy the main character of Reagan and her typical sibling interactions with her 3 sisters. Kellie Sheridan did a wonderful job of creating a set of quadruplets who embodied regular siblings who bicker and fight but also have a special bond with one another that will not be broken.

I really really wanted to love

This is such a great book for those Sundays afternoon when you are trying to relax. Reilly, Reece, Rhiannon and Reagan’s birth are the most exciting thing that happened in Fairview.

Thing is, that the quadruplets’ birth was fourteen years ago. Back in town after fourteen years this sisters hoped to be old news, but they aren’t so lucky and everyone wants to know about them.

That become so bothersome that Reagan decides to change classes and ends up in drama. Her only option available and worst nig

I started this book fully prepared to dislike it. Between the cover and the description, it seemed like a lot of Bad Waiting to Happen.

However, I was pleasantly surprised.

Disclaimer: A received a copy for an honest review from NetGalley. Also, this review does contain spoilers.

Yes, there is a little bit that could do to be changed (the quads' R-names really need to be thought; I still can't 100% tell the difference between Reilly and Reece and really, who names a child Reilly?), including the

Imagine growing up as a quadruplet and being born in a smalltown where this is a phenomenon and made the big new. Now years later , the four girls and their parents are moving back to the small hometown they were born in and it seems that their arrival back is set to make headlines once again. The thing is though that these four girls just want peace and quiet and to find their own footing in high school and not be labelled as freak shows by the media. Four of a Kind mainly focuses on Reagan wh ...more
I received a free copy of this book through netgalley and voluntarily reviewed it.

After reading the prequel novella I was excited to dive into the first book in this series. There was a lot to enjoy and I easily breezed through this book, but I also had some issues with it. In the end I think I actually enjoyed the prequel novella more, which seems so weird to say. Four of a Kind follows Reagan, she and her three sisters just moved back to the town they were born in. It's going to be a difficult

This book was pretty okay. I almost DNFed it because I was just bored. I liked all the characters enough, but not enough for this character-driven story to work out. I felt like a book about quadruplets needed more character development. We get the basics of who is who- Reece is the popular and loud one, Reilly is the nice one, Rhiannon is the rebellious and smart one, and Reagan is the shy one. But I needed more about who makes who who they are. I mean, I just kept mixing up Reilly and Reece's ...more

Reagan is one of four girls who are quadruples at a new school. Reagan may struggle at the new school but her sister's lives aren't as perfect as she first thought, Rhiannon, Reilly and Reece are all going through stuff, not being able to do their favorite activities like seeing old friends, boyfriends and clubs means finding new one's within a new community and as the family is news to moving to the area they're all feelings the pressure to keep up a good image for the whole family, especially ...more
Patchwork Press and NetGalley provided me with an electronic copy of Four of a Kind. This is my honest opinion of the book.

Reece, Reilly, Rhiannon, and Reagan Donovan are the Fairview 4, returned back to town after their mother receives a job offer that the family cannot refuse. On display once again for being a matched set, can the four sisters find their own way and make their own friends? When a reporter's son catches her eye, will Reagan be able to come out of her fantasy world and see all t

Four of a kind is a light-hearted, fun story. The characters are fairly superficial but I liked the sisterly relationships between the four girls.

As an only child, sibling relationships and dynamics interest me. I watched that Quintuplets show many moons ago, so reading a book about quadruplets sounds just like me. It was a good story, written well, but what didn't sell me was that the characters felt two-dimensional. Each sister has her "thing" and I don't really feel it strayed much for that. It was enjoyable, but I felt it could have had just a bit more character development. Thank you to NetGalley for my ARC in exchange for an honest ...more

I received a copy from the publisher/author on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Four of a Kind was the story of four identical quadruplets, specifically Reagan, the oldest of their number, and the trials that they face when they move back to the hometown that knows them better than they know it.

It's an intriguing premise. Obviously, there's a lot of drama to work with here. I especially loved reading about the siblings and their parents. I could feel the love and support that they felt

I was very excited to read this, having just recently read and enjoyed the prequel. Now the quads are in Fairview, and settling into their new lives.

The book is entirely narrated by Reagan, which made it easier to follow who was who, although the R-names are still a bit confusing. I can't remember which was Reece (occasionally spelled Reese too, just to confuse things even more) and Reilly, and then Reagan made a new friend called Rosie too... oh boy!

Reagan is a bit awkward and shy, more at home

Its more like a family story. A set of quadruplets with different personality and attitude and the fact they love each other very much, has given a good impact in reading this. Not so much any complicated things happens, and that's that. I'm only given an okay in reading this so far. ...more

As someone who doesn’t read much of the contemporary genre, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. One of my favourite aspects was the great sisterly relationships, and Reagan, a highly relatable, nerdy introvert, was a great main character to follow as we learned more about the Donovan family. At the beginning I was a bit unsure about the romance, due to a slightly insta-love moment, though it soon became much more realistic. If you’re looking for a cute, easy to read conte ...more

So excited to see this book finally out in the world. Definitely got the Stars Hollow vibe that the blurb promises. I loved watching Reagan's evolution as a character. All around, a cute book that reminds me of my own sisters. Can't wait for the next one! ...more
