 Reese's Book Club Pick 61/68

This was a fun read. Has it been done before? Yeah, probably, but I haven't read anything on the topic. Ava and Winnie were both incredibly frustrating but I couldn't bring myself to hate them. Honestly, Winnie was by far the more interesting character and I would have loved to have spent time inside her POV, rather than Ava's.

The characters felt well developed and the secondary plot about Ava's dissatisfaction with her personal life was well done. Overall, this was an interesting read that kept me engaged - who knew there was so much depth to the world of counterfeit handbags?
