REVIEW: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This was definitely a different type of book than the author's other novels that I have read. I was hoping that it could be a better fit for the author as I was on the fence about the other books I've read from her.Something is just missing though.
The characters are all well-written, with thoughts and lives that the reader can empathize with. Some of the supporting characters are almost too well-written if that makes any sense. I've found that at times the level of description given is so heavy that it tends to put the brakes on the action of the scene for a moment.
The romance between Ben and Lucy was two dimensional for me, it didn't feel real. They meet, then there's a whole bunch of action between, then they meet again, and suddenly they're in love. I think there needs to be a connecting thread between them during that action part.
The action went along at an okay pace. As I read, I found the action starting to flat-line, then something shocking would jolt it back, then it would start to gradually flat line, then it would get shocked back again.
Overall, the story is very well-written, the characters are well-written, but something is missing, perhaps some tension that keeps the story line alive and kicking the entire time.
