Everyone has to start somewhere and for a debut novel I have to say that this shows that this author certainly has flare but I am not sure that this was the completely polished article yet, I think she has more left in her tank to give and that while this was a good read, I thought it had a little room around the edges that could have given it an extra oomph!
Lennox and Vic, well they were the sort of characters that you may shake your head at on more than one occasion but you just can’t help but like them.
Lennox, she was a bit of a klutz, with a habit of being able to unwittingly end up ankle deep in all manner of trouble but I could forgive her most of the time because I loved her wit, she was genuinely funny. But her day to day struggles meant that while she was trying to deal with her less than stellar past and desperately trying to keep her sanity intact while she made it out the other side, she made some really silly decisions, honestly woman!
Now, you might think I am moaning and maybe I am but it is only slightly because the book kept me engaged and entertained.
And one of my absolutely favourite aspects of the book was the banter between Lennox and Vic,that was worth the book price alone.
So that brings me neatly on to Vic.
Well this guy has a whole heap of mean and moodiness going on, and I wanted them to set the page alight and it initially they did but it didn’t last as long as I wanted, their flicker turned down too quickly and I just wanted them to sparkle a little more.
That is not to say that I didn’t like the premise of Vic because as a character he was one that, while he didn’t initially blow my socks off, I could see myself warming too, I just needed a little bit more time.Read more ›
I liked the danger that Dean was always lurking. I really didn't understand Vic at first until it's explained better in later chapters. But I really couldn't put it down.
I would like to know if Noxs mental issues are solved or helped better. As it's pretty scary sounding.
Overall, the basis of this story was a very good one. The plot was interesting and intriguing. However, there were certain parts that for me needed some further development. I actually liked all our main and secondary characters, but there were certain aspects that were just brushed over (for example Vic's occupation left me with so many questions and Lennox's mental health issues).
I also struggled to buy into Vic and Lennox's relationship, I mainly needed more of an emotional connection between them.
It took me a little while to get my head around the story initially, but then I got into the flow of things and really got into the story.
I will certainly read more from Mary Catherine Gebhard in the future and look forward to watching her develop with each new release.
I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Lennox or otherwise known as Lenny moved to Santa Barbara to escape her pyscho ex boyfriend and rents an apartment which turns out that Vic owns the entire building. Lenny gets introduced to new people but keeps secrets from them. I would be happy if there was a spin off for Zoe and Issie (who are Lenny's friends) as they seemed a great couple. Vic really confused me at times and I really wanted to shout at him to let Lenny into his life
I found it very interesting how the author handled mental health issues and it was nice to see someone not sugarcoat it.
