Book one was amazing, short but amazing. Look at the review here.
In book two, we pick off right before the wedding, right when Helen realizes her sister is about to make the worst mistake of her life. At the time, she is dangerously close to falling for the young doctor that wants to give Helen the sight she has never had.
In book three, everything comes together only to fall apart again.
As I stated person before I loved loved loved book one. It was just the perfect amount of development, suspense and whimsical good stuff. However, book two was just okay. Book three wasn’t the best use of my time.
The first sign of trouble Helen wants to bail. She does this for all the books but it gets worst and worst to the point of annoyance in the last two books. Her growth was a disappointment because if things didn’t go smoothly or her way she was done with it. This is a very childish character and it was pissing me off.
Another issue that was killing me was why would you stay within an area of the person who ruined your life? She had choices and yet in her mind if something was going to happen then I guess it will happen. Man, Helen was weak. Which kills me because I never would have expected that from her.
Also the love interest . . . way too perfect. Even when crap hit the fan the whole knight in shinning armor was too extreme. He did everything, he was passionate, smart, handsome, athletic and for the most part could do nothing wrong. It was unrealistic. Because when he did do a mistake, Helen couldn’t handle it -.-
I felt that I couldn’t get any real satisfaction in book two and three as compared to book one. No growth from Helen, the family issues were interesting to say the least, the unrealistic romance and the whining.
Overall, I was disappointed.
2 Pickles for both books.
