Well, it's official - Cassie Graham has a style. I wasn't sure if I would be able to expect the same sweet, lovey, and fun story line I've come to love from her with TTOAL, but I was pleasantly surprised. After that ending in Anyone But Him, I was nervous - but she definitely spun Lark's story in a way I wasn't expecting!
I hereby crown Cassie Graham the queen of modern-day Disney fairy tales. That's the best way I know how to describe her style. She writes in a way that makes you get the butterfly stomach. She'll make you laugh, swoon, and maybe even cry a bit and all in one page.
What I loved most about this particular book was that I could see the growth in her writing. I really enjoyed her beautiful imagery and emotion-evoking dialogue. I felt like I was right there with Rowan and Lark and living their exciting tale with them.
So, what can you expect from TTOAL? Mystery. Suspense. Surprises. Laughter. And, love. Lark may have pissed us all off in Anyone But Him, but he makes up for it in TTOAL (although I was pretty mad at him about 76% through... I still don't forgive you, Larkie Poo!). Overall, he'll steal your heart - especially when you see the way he cares for Rowan. It's almost instant, and the connection only grows with each page.
Rowan, just like all of Graham's heroines, is feisty. She can save herself, she's not afraid to call it how it is, and she's a spitfire. I adore her!
Add in three amazing side characters and sworn Rowan protectors and you have a masterpiece in the making. I won't spoil anything, but I will say that though this ends with an HEA, your heart will still be badly bruised. Prepare to nurse that baby back to health!
Thank you for another amazing love story that gave me all the Disney smiles I've missed as an adult, Cassie Graham. ENTER STAGE RIGHT: Romance Extraordinaire! <3
