**Original review posted on Honest Reviews Corner**

If you’re looking for a quick read with some good sexually explicit content and minimal dialogue – A Splash of Hope would be right up your alley. However, if you’re looking for a book with a story that makes sense – this is not the book for you.

As mentioned in the synopsis, the entire plot focuses on Faith trying to figure out why her sister left Adam (who also happens to be Faith’s former lover) at the altar. The reasoning (not only of why she left but why they were even having a wedding in the first place) turns out to be completely nonsensical.

As mentioned, the author has the sex scenes written pretty well – and you can guess the outcome of the story five minutes into the book, so I have to assume the characters’ storylines weren’t intended to be important. However, since I like books with logic behind the characters’ actions, I wasn’t a fan of A Splash of Hope. To me, it reads sort of like the author wrote out various sex scenes and then tried to create a story to tie them all into one book.

Basically, A Splash of Hope would have rated higher had the storyline (and reasoning behind the characters’ decisions) made more sense. The epilogue was my favorite part of the book. I’m saying that not in a snarky “because I was so glad it was over” kind of way, but because it sort of showed the potential for the characters as a whole – had the author taken time to flesh out the story. (It also gives readers an idea of how good a writer Charity Parkerson could be if she focused more on plot – though I haven’t read her other books, so I’m not sure if this was just a bad example.)

“A Splash of Hope”
Wow! What a wild, titillating, emotional rollercoaster this story was! Though I have read a lot of this author’s work, I was not ready for the story I was about to face. My heart goes out to the Hope sisters and everything they went through. I know how growing up in a small town can be, especially when everyone thinks they know everyone else’s business, and it was no different for these beautiful young women. As for the men in their lives, The Carters, well, that is a story better left for the readers to learn on their own. I definitely give thumbs up to this book and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a story that will blow your socks off. Literally. Good Job, Charity Parkerson. Good job!

Faith and Serenity lost their older sister Harmony and their parents to a stupid bet her alcoholic irresponsible parents caused. The town thought of them as a joke because their names reflected nothing of what their parents were. So when they died Faith had just graduated and didn’t think she could get custody of Serenity because of her age. As it turns out she had no problem because of their reputation nobody wanted Serenity. In high school she always had a crush on Adam but he was out of her league. He hired her to dance at his club he opened to help her send Serenity through college. They did have a erotic interlude but Faith left Murfreesboro and Adam because she couldn’t handle it. Now she headed back to tell Adam, whom she never got over, that Serenity doesn’t want to marry him. All this on the day Serenity is suppose to marry Adam and she was in shock of how and why the whole time driving back to her home town. Buy the book to see what happens.
