Book Review: Pink Slips

Pink Slips. Beth Aldrich. Restoring Essence, June 5, 2017, Trade Paperback, E-book, and Audiobook, 266 pages.

Reviewed by Jessica Cage.

With Pink Slips, Beth Aldrich makes a smooth transition into novel writing from her previous work: Real Moms Love to Eat, a non-fiction book filled with yummy recipes. The story is set in Chicago, where a pregnant Betsy is receiving threatening notes and is left home alone when her husband is away for business. She is left vulnerable and afraid and in an unexpected twist, her dog Barney is there to help her through it. From the opening pages, the reader is engaged and intrigued wanting to know more about the characters inside.

Pink Slips is a touching yet suspenseful story. Though Betsy’s connection with Barney comes a little bit out of left field and could have been better developed, the interactions between her and her pup are enjoyable and readers will grow to care about Aldrich’s characters and become thoroughly swept up in the action. This is a clean and easy read. Overall, it is well done.
