Review of Secondhand Purses by Elizabeth Butts

One Moment. 
Once careless moment that can shred your heart and start building walls brick by brick. 
It just takes one moment to change a person. 
Ten years ago, Alex was a cautious teen who didn’t make friends easily. Somehow, miraculously, she found a lifelong friend and mentor. Even more miraculously, she fell in love. 
Just when Alex’s world was finally turning into something she loved, her one moment happened. She went from sweet and vulnerable to snarky hard edges. 
Everyone has that friend. The one who will tell you what she thinks, even if you don’t want to hear it. The one that would throw herself in front of a train for you once you were ‘in’. The one that hides her pain behind her sarcasm. That friend is Alex. 
But when the center of her moment reenters her life suddenly, what is she supposed to do? Will her world implode on itself again? Will she end up in prison for murder? Or will things somehow end up like she’d always wanted? 

This book was quite different in ways than Singleish was. At the same time we have two stories about women wanting to change their lives. The first book was Ashley had basically stopped participating in her own life and her boyfriend walked out of the picture due to it. Sounds awful right? It really wasn't. In fact, it was really funny and humorous while getting the point across to take a chance and do something new. Secondhand Purses is about Alex and second and even third chances at life and relationships. While it didn't make me laugh as much, I enjoyed the read just as much and may have even shed a few tears. It's a heartfelt read that will leave you feeling pretty good at the end.
