L.H. Cosway's tag cloud

Smashwords book reviews by L.H. Cosway

  • Love is Fear on Feb. 22, 2012

    I really enjoyed this installment of the Valerie Dearborn novels, it had a great mixture of action and romance. I was a little disappointed that things didn't work out between Valerie and Jack, but a very good new storyline was introduced about the fae which was intriguing. The only negative I could point out was that the sex scene were a little overkill at times. But I absolutely adored Hanson's characterization of Rachel, as I found her to be a very interesting persona, she's cruel and uncaring on the outside while emotional and vulnerable on the inside. In all, this was a highly enjoyable read which ended on a breathtaking cliffhanger, and I can't wait to see what happens next.
  • In the Middle of Nowhere (Willow's Journey #1) on July 16, 2012

    A touching young adult tale containing loss, alienation and first love. I enjoyed reading this novel as it contained many of the feelings and experiences common in the lives of teenagers. Willow has had to move away to a remote island off Portland with her mother and younger brother because they can no longer afford to keep their home. Willow goes through her school life relatively unnoticed until one day a boy throws a paper airplane at her in class. This boy is Micheal and Willow finds herself becoming ever more intrigued by him and how he seems to miss school for weeks or months on end. Add to this a new boyfriend of her mother's whom Willow is not quite sure about and the pretty girl at school befriending her, and you have the usual tribulations experienced in young adulthood. I liked Willow as the narrator as she was very believable as a teenager who keeps things from her parent and tries to figure out her feelings towards Michael. The only thing I would have liked for this story would be to see more interaction between Michael and Willow, as he is absent for most of it. However, I can understand why the author made him so absent as we discover the real cause of why he's always going into fits of coughing and missing so much school. I have to admit that I shed a few tears towards the end and was afraid that the ending would be terribly sad but then the author turned it around and surprised me. I liked how it ended because it gave me hope for the future of the characters. I can't fault the writing at all as it was superb and Knudsen portrayed the mindset of her young protagonist perfectly. I also liked the sense of separation from the world and loneliness we feel with her description of the island, especially when Willow's going towards it on the ferry one day and it is completely covered in snow. In all, I would recommend this to fans of books by the likes of Nicholas Sparks or books that deal with real life issues. It's an emotional read, but a good one.
