I would have enjoyed a lot more insight into Cara’s state of mind and reasoning behind her life’s work– ridding the world of men who prey on children. The reveal that The Reaper was still at work shouldn’t have been a surprise, but it snuck up on me. I was entirely more focused on the FBI trying to track and trace Cara.
I noted this in my notes while reading this story but I would have enjoyed this novel so much more if it had been straight suspense/mystery. The romantic element was extremely forced and unbelievable. My eyes glazed over any mention of attraction (which occurs, basically, on night one). I am amazed that professionals view a case in which people are losing their lives with the thought, “I’ve got to solve this HEINOUS CRIME. And also my partner is really hot. We’re going to solve this murder but first we need to almost have sex several times and then we just need to give in and also I love you but I have only know you six days…”
I find myself longing for another installment of this magical family. The tree (and the house) has so much personality, it’s probably my favorite character. And I feel like there is more story to tell.
This short was written in response to a writing exercise. We were given at title and had to write a story to match.
A little book news, a little weekend planning…
