I’ve read a ton of books lately (nothing unusual there, hehe), and I thought I’d share some of my favorites over the coming months. There won’t be a book review every week, of course, but they are pretty easy posts to do when life is otherwise busy. Right now I have an editing job I’m focusing on, so easy is muchly needed at the moment.
Zac was a very complex hero and easy to cheer for. He exuded empathy, chose to have a “no guts, no glory” attitude and reputation, and dealt with anxiety attacks. His heart for family astounded me, and I adored the fact that he became the mediator for his family. He charmed me with his down-to-earth personality and his willingness to reach out even when certain characters tried to shove him far, far away.
The twisty plot kept surprising me and even made me gasp in shock a couple of times.
There were some really great cast additions. These new characters popped right off the pages.
I liked the road trips and chosen-family aspect of this story.
I loved how the century-old layers of history for the characters were peeled back and speckled into the novel. This was artfully done and felt organic to the plot.
May we please have Simon’s story next, Mrs. Stevens? Pretty please!!!
