My Review posted in 2015:
I just absolutely loved this book! I’m especially happy I found it after the 2nd book, Undertow came out. That way I don’t have to wait to see what happens after the cliffhanger Ms. Melanson left us with. I’ve already 1-clicked the sequel, and I cannot wait to start it:)
I won’t give away the secrets of this book for potential new readers. Discovery of a really amazing book is the fun of reading in the first place. There is one thing I do want to address, though. Several reviews have mentioned how odd it seems for Maura to refer to her mother as Caelyn instead of Mom for much of the book. I found this to be a brilliant touch of ‘showing’ instead of ‘telling’. I got it, I really did. Caelyn had her daughter at a very young age, and in some ways, the two of them have grown up together. Caelyn is fiercely protective of her daughter, but she is emotionally dependent on her too, and in several ways, she’s allowed Maura to take over the role of parent. They have an extremely complicated relationship, and all of the secrets between them don’t help them to understand each other.
I’m extremely impressed by the excellent way this book was written. Good writing is a combination of learned skill and innate talent, and Ms. Melanson has both. I love discovering new writers, and I look forward to watching her career blossom. If you’re wondering whether to give this book a shot, just download the free sample, and see how fast it gets you hooked!
