A feel good, warm hearted story. 3.5 stars (could be 4....waiting to see how the second is)
I won the 3rd, in this series as a First Reads giveaway, and decided I needed to read the first and second books first.
I really enjoyed it, although I did have a couple of small issues...

(Not necessarily spoilers, but my thoughts on parts of the book)

Sometimes I felt like Bernadine was flaunting all that money...
For instance...this excerpt irritated me...

“Yep, and my parents didn’t have the money to buy fancy stuff like this, but I learned over the years that it’s okay to like nice things. I’ve been poor and I’ve been rich, and this is way better.” Crystal smiled. “This is our world, Crystal. Yours and mine, and this is how we’re going to be rolling. With nice stuff, beautiful rooms. When I take you to Milan next year for Fashion Week, are you planning on sleeping on the floor of the five-star hotel we’re going to be staying in?”

I feel like she is teaching Crystal, that money does buy happiness.

And when Lily needed a new car, Bernadine insisted on buying her one, even though Lily could afford one herself.

I found it to be a warm, feel good, heartwarming book overall, and I am looking forward to #2 & 3.
It has a good sense of family, friendship, community, etc.
