So many thoughts...and not necessarily great ones.

I hate that I am left feeling this way about a book that's a true story of how one woman escaped so much horror in Vietnam and created an empire in America, truly living the American dream, but here we are.

First of all...the writing. I could not get past the writing. "Then she did this. And then they discovered that. It was this. It was that. Then they all said this." Ugh. I also read the word "difficult" in one sentence three times. THREE

Thanks to Booksparks for sending me a copy of the book.


This was definitely an interesting read. I went into it thinking it was a firsthand account of building a nail salon business from the ground up, written by a Vietnamese immigrant. It turned out I wasn’t paying enough attention. Yes, that’s a good chunk of the story, but it’s not a firsthand account, and the story includes a lot of information about Charlie’s immigration experience. I do wonder if I would’ve felt more connected to the story

Thanks to SheWrites Press and Booksparks for having me as a part of this book tour.

It took me a while to get into this book, but I ended up really enjoying the story of Charlie and how she started her nail empire. She outsmarted her competition and worked her way up to the top of the industry.

I wasn't a fan of the writing in this book though. I found it choppy and very repetitive. Certain words were repeated and I don't think it flowed well.

Overall, an interesting read.
