I had heard, but never read anything by the author of A Billion Reasons Why until picking up this book and was pleasantly surprised!
Being an aspiring author I look for aspects of books that captivated me. The dialogue! It’s a lesson in precision, subtext, quick wit and emotion, giving the reader an effective glimpse into the mind of the character speaking. I laughed more than once at Katie and her best friend Eileen as she tried to keep her in line.
There is a subtle faith message woven through the book; one I appreciated. It’s one of those books that I could probably read several times to absorb its full impact. Katie’s struggles are especially well thought out and anxieties increased through the book. Letting go…and letting God seem to be the theme, though never in an overt way.
My one thought about the book is I am unsure about Luc. He was a suave hero that made more than just Katie’s heart dance, but I never really got a clear glimpse into his beliefs. I would have liked to dig a bit deeper into him.
But I was still pleased with my first experience with this author’s work. Its quick witted, sprinkled with dry humor and a romance leaving you longing for more. I enjoyed it!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.
