Hellooo, dearies! Welcome to a book blitz to spotlight Four of a Kind, by Kellie Sheridan =D I’ve first heard of this book through Beth, my lovely Penguin from Betwixt The Pages, and now it’s a top priority on my wish list, haha! But let’s meet the book!
Four of a Kind
Four of a Kind #1
by Kellie Sheridan
Genre: YA Contemporary
Release Date: January 4th, 2017
The odds of giving birth to identical quadruplets: 1 in 13 million.
The population of Fairview, a town where all anyone talks about is the Fairview Four’s return after fourteen years: 47,327.
The chance of Reagan meeting a guy who sees her as one of a kind: better than she thinks.
Following in her sisters’ footsteps—and, all too often, their shadows—is nothing new to Reagan. But a disastrous first day at Fairview High forces her down a new path, one that could lead to seeing herself as more than just someone else’s sister. Things aren’t going as smoothly for Reilly, Reece, and Rhiannon though. How can Reagan let herself be happy—or dare to fall in love—when she may be the only one who can bring her family back together?
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants meets Gilmore Girls in the first novel of a heartwarming new series about first loves, family, and finding your way.

One, two, three. Not the four she was hoping for. I’d like to point out that we’re actually two short, since my dad isn’t here either, but like always, I keep my mouth shut.
“Rhiannon made the drive up in our moving truck with the girls’ father,” Mom says like she’s apologizing. She has nothing to apologize for, especially not to this woman who gave us no warning she’d be here. “We didn’t quite expect this today.”
“Of course, of course! No trouble at all, Elaine.” Mindy smiles, showing off a row of perfectly white teeth. “Will they be arriving soon?”
“Unfortunately, no. They’re at least two hours behind us. We’d be happy to sit down with you tomorrow though, once the girls have had a little time to settle in.”
I almost laugh at the comment. We moved out of the city, to an entirely new state, and it’s only going to take us one afternoon to get settled in? Yeah, okay.
“I guess that will be fine,” Mindy says. “If there’s really no way to get Rhiannon here. Everyone is so looking forward to seeing the girls together in Fairview again. And we did want to do this before the new school year starts.”
“When’s that?” Reece asks.
“September second.” Less than two weeks. “I assume the girls will be going to Fairview High?” She can’t be bothered to speak to us directly. Apparently we’re just supposed to stand here and smile for the cameras. Which isn’t so bad, now that I think about it.
“Yes, just like I did. They’ll be sophomores this year.”
“My son Kent is starting his sophomore year, too.” Mindy claps her hands together. “He keeps a busy schedule, but I’m sure he’d be happy to show you around!” She beams at the three of us like we should be weeping with gratitude that her darling boy is willing to play tour guide.
It’s tempting to roll my eyes—until someone shoulders his way past Mindy and sticks his hand out in front of me. It’s him. The guy with the green hair. This is Kent?
I blink slowly, looking back at him. From the front, he’s even better than I imagined. His eyes are the same warm brown as his skin, and they crinkle up a little as he smiles at me.
“Hi,” he says, looking down at his hand expectantly. I’m still fixated on the near golden brown of his eyes, and the way they stand out, unnaturally bright against the even tan of his skin. “I’m Kent. Welcome to Fairview.”
Right! Hand-shaking. Frantically, I grab on to his hand and bounce it up and down a few times before he moves to Reece and then Reilly.
“Nice to meet you,” I mumble.
I don’t think he hears me, but a second later his eyes lock on mine. For an instant, he just looks at me and I will myself to do something, anything. His eyes almost seem to be teasing me. I can’t help it. I smile before we both glance away. “Welcome to Fairview,” I hear him mumble. He’s already shaking Reece’s hand, but something about the way his head still tilts in this direction suggests that maybe she doesn’t have his full attention.
After he introduces himself to Reilly, the four of us all hang back as Mindy and my mom keep chatting about everything from the drive to the move to the weather. No matter how short Mom’s answers are, the questions seem to keep coming like Mindy is hoping that if she holds us here long enough she’ll be able to wait out Rhiannon.
The boy—Kent, I remind myself—smiles back at me before getting dragged back in to a conversation with his mother. But I’m not listening anymore. All I can think about are brown eyes, and just how much I’m going to like living here.

Kellie Sheridan been in love with stories in all of their forms for as long as she can remember. Admittedly, sometimes that means falling into places like Stars Hollow and Sunnydale, but books have always been her true love. In early 2011 she began writing a book blog in order to share my favorite reads with book lovers. From there, the bookish community encouraged her to stop sitting on her own stories and share them instead. Her first novel, Mortality released in March of 2013, and she’s been publishing ever since.
Thank you so much for reading and for Lola’s Blog Tours for the delightful blitz! I hope you guys are as excited as I am to read Four of a Kind!
