I stayed up so late reading this book, I couldn't stand to go to sleep and stop reading, it was so so so good. But at the end I was disappointed that things were not resolved. I felt Ellery should not have left things undone and unsaid, but I guess thats what the second book is for.
I have really liked the other books from CL Bevill that I have read. I really liked this book at first. But I didn't really like the whole ending and was a little disappointed that it wasn't as exciting as the beginning and middle.
Another great story from CL Bevill. I love all the ones I have read and if I could read only CL's books I would. I love them so much I can't put them down, they are THAT good, but I also hate that I CANT put it down, because I have a herd time getting anything else done.
I didn't really like the character in this book. I had a hard time getting to know them. Years went by without much explanation as to what happened during that time. I didn't know what kind of relationship Shawnee and Emory had and when Shawnee left I assumed that Emory was afraid of commitment and later found out that if was the other way around. Shawnee seemed flighty which I didn't know until she left and it sounded like everyone thought it was inevitable. Then the sister died which I thought was unnecessary. Her dying brought nothing to the story, only leaving Shawnee with no sister and Mason with no wife. Is it a true story or something? Is that why there couldn't have been a somewhat happy ending? I don't know, but I didn't like it. Sorry
I started out liking this book just fine. Matt and Violet seemed nice enough, but I didn't really understand the relationships they had with their parents. Their parents were way too involved in their children's lives. And they lived with their parents even though Matts father was such a jerk to him, yet Matt had no reason to move out? Violets family seemed old fashion which would have been fine if it was explained by religious reasons or maybe the book was based in the 50's which it wasn't. Then Stacey was added making Violet distrust Matt, and Matt was stupid to not get a DNA test in the beginning. I just ended up not liking it, and forcing myself to finish it.
