I started this on a whim after seeing some good reviews of some friends.
I just wanted something that would make me want to read, so I started this, and I found myself liking it.
I had never read a paranormal romance in which the paranormal element was so toned down.
Also for a story that takes place in the fifties, the characters were surprisingly modern. I should know that sooner or later there would be a catch.
Sarah is a feminist, she knows what she wants, and she knows how she'll get it.
She wants an education, and she has the support of her family.
Owen, also wants an education. Unfortunately due to his condition _ the shifter thing that runs in the family _ he won't be able to follow his dream. Also, as a consequence of his different condition, he ends up estranged of great part of his family.
In that moment we believe when he says he will live the rest of his life as a hermit. Too bad the author didn't explore this.
Some years go by, Sarah returns home, due to some events, and I'm afraid that things start happening extremely fast: things that had been properly developed would allow for some real conflict.
But no, instead the romance between those two blossoms in the blink of an eye, and by the middle of the book, I was ready for the thing to end. Really.
We have two characters, extremely likeable, sweet and reasonable who start behaving as idiots. Because by that moment, the book was only about their romance. The shifter part was still extremely undeveloped, and Sarah who up until now had behaved in a logical manner, decides to act all drama queen.
Maybe I'll finish it some other time, but at this moment I just don't have the patience for it.
Too bad, because at the beginning of the story I thought I was reading a four star book.
