Fly Girl’s Review:
The publisher approached me about this book several months ago and I was happy to oblige. We do that here you know, we get asked to read books by publishers, authors, and publicity firms, when we finish we give them reviews. I know call me crazy, but that’s what this blog is about…book reviews. So I took this one on and was a little disappointed. The synopsis seemed like it could be read on it’s own even though it was part of a series. After about a third of it though, I was wishing I had time to read the previous ones in the series. Since my schedule was so tight, I couldn’t stop to do that so I pressed on.
The love story was very nice. I especially liked the scene in the church at the beginning. The hot looks, the unwanted stares, the introspect of feelings long kept at bay. The love story works, but the mystery and stalking didn’t work for me. There wasn’t enough interaction in this book with the antagonist and there didn’t seem enough sincerity in Kipling’s worry or desire to find his missing sister. It was more about solving Alyssa’s sister’s death. I know these two lines intersect, but I felt it was lacking in the worry and hurry you would normally find in a kidnapping.
There are a few things that bring this one down for me to a 3 of 5 propellers. First off, it can be read as a stand alone only if you want the romance and to see a guy work very hard to protect his “damsel in distress”, which in fact isn’t helpless. If you want to engage in the mystery, you really need to read the whole series. It isn’t so much to gain perspective on the other characters as it is the build up of the final take down in this one. Since I felt there was a lack of emotional entanglement in the kidnapping plot, that brings it down also. Again, the saving grace is the romance. That part was well done. So final take, read this series from start to finish. I’ve been nice enough to provide all the links too.
