I LOVED this book! The story was so well written, it's hard to believe that it was a debut novel. I loved the concept of the storyline and I anxiously await the sequel coming out in July. ( )

This book is one that I will be adding to the “Have to Buy” list. You know those books that grab you after you start reading, because they start you questioning “Huh?” and “What?”? Then, after some more chapters, you go to the “Why?” and “How?” questions. Then, you get to the “What if…?” questions.
Yeah, this book does that. It grabs you, and doesn’t let go. The twists and turns thrown at you make it impossible to do anything else but read. You end up reading straight through; staying up way later than you should, because you want to get to the end just so you can get the answers to all your questions.
And that is when you know you’ve read a really good book. But what made this a Great Book is the “after I was done”, when I went and Googled subjects that came up in the book.
I received an e-copy of this story for my honest review.

This is very mysterious. I wasn't actually sure what happened to James for the longest. Ian was my favorite because he was just so understanding and good, not that others weren't, he just stood out. If you're going to read this, don't read any spoilers. Even though you might figure some things out ahead of time, it's better to not know for sure to enjoy the ride. ( )

Meh...good to listen to in a long car trip ...probably would have put it down if it was in my hands ( )

SPOILER ALERT: This review contains spoilers. And some sarcasm.

This was a fairly entertaining read. I couldn't wait to finish it to see if I was the only one who was distracted by one particular aspect, so I am writing this review before I read any others. Here is the thing that distracted me: the book could have been about 20 pages shorter if the author had edited out all of the sentences that were structured like this:

[My/His/Her] [body part] [verb, past tense]
Examples: His jaw clenched. My stomach tightened. Her cheeks flushed. My heart raced.

After awhile, it became hilarious. I started to focus less on the plot and more on hooting every time I came across one of these sentences. If I turned it into a drinking game, limited just to eyes, I would have been smashed by Chapter 2. Eyes were almost characters unto themselves, so active were they. Here is a partial list of things that eyes got up to in this novel:

They crinkled, twinkled, shined, gleamed, danced, misted, softened, hardened, rounded, widened, and most of all, they narrowed. Oh, how they narrowed. Sometimes, more than one characterÛªs eyes would narrow in a single scene.

So yeah, that was a big issue for me with this book, even though it was unintentionally entertaining.

Also, I contend that the author had two pretty decent ideas for a book:

Idea 1
1.) A young woman tragically loses her childhood sweetheart in a freak accident; burying him on her wedding day. She rebuilds her life and finds love with a handsome photographer.

Idea 2
2.) A young woman tragically loses her childhood sweetheart in a freak accident; burying him on her wedding day. As time goes by, she learns that her fiance was involved in shady dealings with his family‰Ûªs business; and she becomes more and more convinced that he is still alive. What happened to him?

If she stuck to Idea 1, this would have been a really nice little romance. Idea 2 would have also been a good read, but it would have needed to be MUCH more fleshed out. Jamming them together like this made the whole thing overly long and kind of ridiculous.

I would definitely give this author another chance, but I can‰Ûªt give this novel more than 3 stars for the reasons noted. ( )
