REVIEW : Better Believe It by Fern Ronay


Jada Marlone’s life appears to be perfect on social media. She has a loving husband, a beautiful child, and a successful career. What she doesn’t post about is the disconnect she feels in her marriage, the difficulties of motherhood, and her strained relationship with her mother.

Resigned to never being truly happy, Jada runs into an ex-boyfriend. While trying to decide whether the coincidence is her second chance at happiness, Jada begins having dreams that feature her dead cousin Gina.

With Gina’s help, Jada starts to uncover the real reasons behind her life decisions. As Jada tries to figure out her future, uncontrollable events threaten her resolve. Will she be able to draw from all she learned from Gina, or will she risk making the same mistakes twice?

“Well, the course has been reset, all right. Change is in the air. I’m catching it right in my windpipe.”

my review

Fern Ronay is a new to me author and the blurb of this story really grabbed my attention. I was intrigued by it and wanted to know more. This story was different from what I normally read, but it was such a fun and great change. I loved every single moment of this book.

Jada had the perfect life on social media, however, we all know that many people don’t put the bad and the ugly or the struggles all over their social media pages. Jada’s life was anything from perfect. She was struggling, she felt alone. She runs into an ex and she really starts to think about her life decisions. Her road through life changes is not an easy one and full of struggles.

I loved how real Jada was. As a character she was extremely relatable. Everyone is struggling with something in their lives whether it be family, friends, relationships, or a career. In some way you can connect with Jada and how she is feeling. I loved the added aspect of Gina throughout this story. The insight she provided not only got Jada to think, but it got you to think as a reader.

This was such a fun book to read. I loved every single moment of this story.
