Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
I was absolutely excited to read this book. The blurb sounded so good and grabbed me instantly and the type of story that I love to read. Sadly, it wasn’t as good as I had hoped. Now, it wasn’t horrible or unreadable by any means. It just wasn’t as good as the blurb led it to be.
The female lead character sure was whiney and kind of rude quite a bit. There were references to her being cautious and scared but really there was no detail or information provided why. There was really no back story so instead of me having sympathy for her, I viewed her as annoying and whiney.
I didn’t really get much “friskiness” from her. We didn’t get much from her blog where she wrote her “confessions.” There were a couple of posts towards the end but that was all we got. It seemed more of an afterthought than the main idea of the story. There was only really one moment of reference for the “friskiness” and it was very short lived.
All that being said, overall, it wasn’t a bad story. It kept my attention and kept me reading in hopes of more, but that more just wasn’t there. The descriptions were good and the detail in the story was excellent. The story flowed well and you could keep reading with how it was written.
