This book is a detective story, with only a tiny bit of magic. That’s not a bad thing, but don’t go into this expecting a fantasy!
I was holding it together for most of the story, but the ending of this book completely wrecked me. I cried like a baby. Sadie, our main character, is out for revenge. She thinks she knows who murdered her sister- the sister that she took care of for years, and played the role of mother to- and she's going to find him and make him pay.
I’ve become so wrapped up in the world of the Falcones while reading this series, and I’m really sad that it’s come to an end. I didn’t expect to like this series as much as I did, especially after the first book, but it snuck up on me and I’m sure it’ll stick with me for a while.
I am sooo happy with where this book ended up going! We got WAY more Millie, more Luca, more suspense, and tons of actual substance in the plot. I honestly don’t understand how the first book in the series could have missed the mark on so many levels, and then we’re given this book that is 200 times better. I couldn’t tear myself away from this book, and there were multiple times where I had to stop for a second and just say “holt shit” and process what I just read.
This story is B A S I C. I finished this book in one afternoon, so at least I can say that I didn’t waste too much time on it. And the fact that I am most definitely going to waste MORE time continuing with the series has to say something.
I really thought I was going to like this book. A cute contemporary with some high school nostalgia, added in with getting to see what kind of trouble Lara Jean’s letters get her into and how she gets out of it. But it didn’t go down like that at all.
This book left a horrible taste in my mouth. The only reason I ended up giving it two stars instead of one is because I enjoyed the writing style and the author was able to give tons of history and depth to the characters. But in a book where you hate all the characters, does that even matter?
This book didn’t impress me in terms of writing and story-line, although it was funny and did a good job of keeping me entertained. The plot was a little far-fetched, but the basic plot-line was also a scenario that I have fantasized about happening to me in real life, so it was fun to read a take on how everything would play out.
