The author continues the stories of three friends pushing through life and this one focuses more on Darby. I could feel her hesitation in everything and understand her predicament. I love that the story focuses on the friendships but also, of life. Life is not easy and there are moments where we feel like everything is going wrong. The author does a great job of bringing the balance to the story and giving us a feel-good story while also leaving us wanting more.

The Selling Point is the second book in the Chammont Point series by Marci Bolden. This can be read as a stand alone, but I think you'll get more enjoyment out of it if you've read The Restarting Point first. This book centers on Darby Zamora who is flashy, eccentric and beats to her own drum. She's had a lot of different jobs and currently she's running an online wedding dress boutique that's filled with dresses of brides who ended up cancelling their nuptials for one reason or another. She really wants it to take off and so when she's given the opportunity to go on a podcast hosted by a famous podcaster, she couldn't be more thrilled. What she ends up getting out of that is much different than what she was expecting - the nasty comments start rolling in on the website and on social media calling her out for capitalizing on other people's misfortune. Darby doesn't quite it see it the way those sharing their opinions do, but during the upheaval, she turns to her two best friends, Jade and Taylor, who help her through all that is happening. We also get to see a very different side of Darby. We begin to understand why she's the way she is and that there is a lot more to her than what she typically shows to everyone in her orbit. There were a few times I wanted to shake Darby, as I felt like she just couldn't see what was right in front of her, but that was one reason too, why I love the friendship between Darby, Taylor and Jade so much. In their own ways, Jade and Taylor helped Darby to see how the way she was thinking about things might be contributing to some of what was happening. It showed the power of having people in your corner and being thankful for those that always stick by your side. This was another wonderful offering by Marci Bolden and I'm really looking forward to the next book!

This is the second book in the Chammont Point series and focuses mainly on Darby. Darby is a flashy gal who owns a bridal gown business. In her attempt to sell gowns that ended up not being purchased due to the weddings being cancelled for various reasons, she discloses the stories of what happened to the brides (without giving names). Her friends, Jade and Taylor try to reign her in, but she joyfully tells the stories in a radio interview and instantly becomes a pariah on social media, with the nasty comments showing up faster on her site than she can delete. The depression that has plagued her off and on during her life rears it's ugly head and sends her into a tailspin. The story tells her struggle with coming to terms with how others see her actions as inappropriate and as taking advantage of the misfortune and heartache of others. She has to turn deeply inward in order evaluate the reasons and results of her actions, her resulting depression, as well as the reasons behind her brightly colored hair and her unusual choice of clothing. It's a painful journey, but her friends support her and in the end she faces the fact that she needs help with her depression. This could definitely be read as a standalone, but I strongly suggest starting with the first book of the series. I was gifted a copy of this book via the author and NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.

About the author

As a teen, Marci Bolden skipped over young adult books and jumped right into reading romance novels. She never left. Marci lives in the Midwest with her husband, two teenaged kiddos, and numerous rescue pets. If she had an ounce of will power, Marci would embrace healthy living but until cupcakes and wine are no longer available at the local grocery store, she’ll put that ambition on hold and appease her guilt by reading self-help books and promising to join a gym “soon.”
