All Our Pretty Songs by Sarah McCarry
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a relatively short, easy to read book that has a lot of good qualities.
I found that in the beginning, for the first few chapters leastways, this book reminded me of others I had read in the same genre. After it gets going, there were a few strange transitions and over the top happenings, but it was entertaining.
The characters are interesting and I can see them being able to grow throughout this series, although oddly, the main character was not my favourite. Perhaps as the series moves forward she will grow into someone that I can relate to more.
I liked the way the author described her setting and the visual qualities she gave this book. It was not hard to imagine standing there amongst the characters and that made it seem more realistic.
The relationships between the characters are pretty dramatic and gives a good set up for the next book.
I would not say that all adults will enjoy this book, but for the intended age group, I think this might be a winner.
This review is based on a digital ARC.
Home to Whiskey Creek by Brenda Novak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book begins interestingly enough with a woman trapped in an abandoned mine shaft and a man with only a bicycle to rescue her before the fall of night. I liked that. It was different.
There were a few times during the course of this book where the dialogue felt a bit stilted and not quite what I would have expected from the characters, but for the most part this was a really good book. The people the author created had histories which knit together well to make a good story and an emotional foundation for the characters to grow from as the book progressed.
I was happy with the relationships in this novel. A lot of the reason why I tend to tire while reading romance is the cookie cutter assembly of places and characters that one gets used to after a number of similar books. This story was different. I felt the author took the time to explore each of her characters and make them individuals. This was not the same as previous books I had read and I felt like the characters could have been real people.
The setting was also a good choice and the descriptions made it easy to imagine being there as well. The description was enough to make it interesting without over describing everything.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes complex, mature characters.
This review is based off of a digital ARC from the publisher.
