I would absolutely recommend this charming story. It was great as a stand-alone book, but even better as the prequel to Someone Else's Love Story, which I recommend so so highly! Such interesting and complex characters!
Any thing Joshilyn Jackson writes is a must-buy in my world! You can always count on her stories to be unpredictable, deep, interesting reads with great characters! Way to go, Joshilyn, from a long time Kudzu BB!
I loved the story and the characters felt so complex and real. The unexpected twists and turns the story took as events unfolded had me on the edge of my seat! Now that the book is over, I think I'm going to have to listen again soon because I grew quickly to care for these characters and I'm going to miss them terribly!
It felt a little bit like Between, Georgia, another excellent book by the same author.
She is an awesome narrator! Good voices, accents!
The book made me laugh, smile, and have misty eyes. In a good way.
Thanks, Joshilyn, for another masterpiece! You are truly a gifted writer and narrator! From a long time Kudzu reader BB.
I really wanted to enjoy this book, and I did like the narrator and the adventures, although the violence was too much for my taste. What disappointed me was the depressing nature of everything. No character learned anything or grew in character or had anything positive happen to them AT ALL. I wasn't looking for a sappy happy ending, but EVERYONE just slogged through the book in misery, and were left in misery at the end. I did like Clara's last angry words to Captain Call, and I agreed with her completely. Call is the most cowardly and selfish character I have encountered in literature and didn't learn anything from his experiences. Although I really liked Gus, I hated Call. I kept hoping for something to tie everything together, some kind of redeeming event, but the book just ended abruptly and awkwardly. The characters were shallow and mostly stereotypical. I don't understand why this book gets high ratings from people.
I really enjoyed this book and the marvelous narrator - as I always enjoy the books by Mary Balogh.
