Amy Harmon writes such indelible characters, I always seem to fall in love with them. In fact, I don't know why I haven't read all her books by now. Her pacing, flawless. The feels, amazing. My one issue with this particular story is the ending. I would have liked it to play out differently, without the unnecessary bit of drama.
At the half-way point, I switched from reading to listening. I was hooked and wanted to keep reading, despite having many chores around the house, that I needed to get to. So I checked out the audiobook from my library site. I have to say, Tavia Gilbert does some amazing accents (which I already knew because of The Firebird Series) Finn's Boston accent, was excellently done. Bonnie Rae's singing…well…it wasn't that bad at all, actually. She really brought this book to life.
