My rating: 4 of 5 gargoyles
This was a sweet story, though with definite touches of darkness to it. Meredith really pushed herself to get out of the bad situation she’d gotten into, finding herself with her sister. Now tired of being the “perfect girl” she always had to be when she lived at home, she starts “something” (neither can really define it) with Gage.
There are some twists throughout, both with Gage and with Meredith and their families. I really enjoyed how both worked (separately) to solve the Meredith’s family problem and in the end, their solutions ended up being quite complementary (very vague, but trying to avoid spoilers).
Meredith’s old loss that haunts her in the wake of some fantastic news from her sister really resonated with me. I nearly cried with her as she related what had happened and the guilt she felt over it to Gage.
Gage – he was awesome. That’s pretty much it.
Sorry this is a discombobulated mess of a review, but I really enjoyed it and there was a ‘lot’ to the story.
Check it out if you get the chance. It’s worth the read and a bargain at the price.
