1/5 – DNF at 41%
Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with an advance copy of this book! It, in no way, influenced my opinions. I basically requested this book because of the title, description, and cover. They interested me, really.
The story in this is dual told from different periods. Ivy is Kaine’s great-great grandmother (give or take a great). It’s a mystery of sorts where they’re trying to figure out an eerily similar problem from their respective time periods. Ivy is dealing with a murdered girl who recently had a baby, the baby nowhere to be found. Kaine’s husband was possibly murdered and she has a stalker, a stalker that followed her to her new home.
I told you it sounded interesting. However, it was just dull.
There was absolutely no tension to be seen, even if it was described as a mystery. The focus just wasn’t on the mystery. It was a catalyst for the women to find new love, with the mystery hovering in the background with some decisions to be made. However, it just really felt like romance and things were just being figured out. I was 40% into it and there were no suspects in either story. It left me wondering what point the mystery held besides to get them close to men who could heal the women’s dark pasts.
Definitely not one for me.
