The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was a very interesting book. The whole premise was very unique and I'll admit to being a little spooked by every noise in my house after finishing it!
I love when authors come up with fresh new ideas for books and love it even more when I can't figure out the ending!
Normally I avoid timeslip novels because I only like one of the storylines. Wright, however, has truly mastered this type of novel. Instead of wanting to get back to just one story I found myself always wanting to get back to the other no matter which one I was reading because I couldn't wait to see a resolution to the mystery! I'm usually amazed at an author keeping the plot of a book in line - but in Wright's case, she does it times two and excels at it!
The lover of romance in novels really liked the contemporary storyline, but that isn't to say I didn't enjoy the historical half because I really loved the mystery in that part. Honestly, both parts stand out with things that I loved. In the historical part, my favorite was the newspaper. I've always loved newspaper ever since I was on staff in both high school and college for the school's papers. I know some people love to read the obits, but personally, I don't care for them. But they made for a great addition to this story.
I'm really excited to see what Wright does in her third book. These books have been so refreshingly different than what I normally read!
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher. This is my honest opinion.
