The Secret Diamond Sisters #1 The Secret Diamond Sisters [REVIEW]

Presenting The Secret Diamond Sisters #1 The Secret Diamond Sisters by Michelle Madow.

Here is the summary of the book:

Savannah. Courtney. Peyton. 

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.

After her YA Paranormal Transcend Time Saga author Michelle Madow presents her brand new and excitingly contemporary and invigorating of a tale of three sisters coming from an almost tough life and thrust into the throws of the sparkling high society life..... and this is just the first book of the series. 

Peyton. Courtney. Savannah. The Diamond Sisters. Also the protagonists of the series. They may have been as different as day and night but they are sisters and know how to take care of each other. Peyton came across as the hard ass rebel. She is the oldest of the lot and in all, is the negative thinker of the lot and speaks her mind. Courtney is the middle child and frankly much more responsible and manageable of the lot. And there is the youngest Savannah. Quite naive and rather optimistic of the three, sporting quite a happy disposition towards life and your typical teenager.

Together they are the Secret Diamond Sisters, daughters of Adrian Diamond, the elusive and mega rich entrepreneur. I liked that they each had a good head on their shoulders and didn't get blinded by the light and allure of the Vegas strip. They are like a tight knot group and support each other if they the situation calls it. Coming from such harsh conditions and out of the blue finding out that you are the daughter of a rich guy and being given a black AMX card can definitely turn the head of anybody. So I am definitely glad that they showed some perseverance.

Then there are the love interests. I liked Brett and Courtney..... they had some pretty real chemistry.... but poor them they are going to be step-siblings. Peyton and Jackson showed some real promise too. And Savannah and Nick as well, although Damien and Oliver and in the mic too.... but lets see how things go from here.... Definitely excited to see who ends up with who. 

Got to give it to Michelle. The Secret Diamond Sisters felt definitely a balanced, entertaining, engaging and lovable and real tale of three sisters in  a posh setting. The language is simple and descriptive and paints a colorful picture of Las Vegas and its lifestyle.... And very Gossip-Girl-esque too...... I LOVED IT!
