A REVIEW BY ME
This is a good book, I suppose. I mean, the story line kept my attention and I really did want to see how it would all work out. For the most part, I did enjoy her writing style. And a lot of the Christian messages of the book were great!
There were several things that I didn’t like about this book. The thing that bothered me most is that I think it was too… sensual. Was there anything “wrong” or “inappropriate”? Most people probably wouldn’t think so. But it seemed like the characters just couldn’t keep their hands and mouths to themselves!
I had a really hard time cheering for (or even liking) the main characters. They really made me mad quite a lot. In fact, through most of this book I felt sad, annoyed, aggravated, frustrated, disappointed… even a bit depressed. Sure it ended well (for the most part), but it wasn’t very enjoyable getting to that ending.
All the back & forth and love triangle stuff really got annoying! The characters couldn’t make up their minds and I got kinda tired of reading about it all.
I really don’t understand how so many people were able to give this book 5 stars…
It’s rare for my favorite characters to not be the main characters, but mine in this book were probably Mr. & Mrs. O’Connor (loved the relationship between these two!) and Mrs. Gerson (what a lady!).
Will I read more books by this author? I’ll probably try at least one more. Though I don’t know that I’ll be finishing this series… especially since the next book is about Charity & I can’t stand that girl!
