I was in the mood to read something cute and had no idea that this would turn out to be so adorable. The title is a bit misleading since I had a different idea of what the book was going to be about. Yes I confess I did yell at the book a bit. Doesn't everyone? Or is that just something I do? I've even done that in public while read walking.
It did end in a good way but I can't help but want some more. Yes I just said that even though I'm literally drowning in series. My brain starts thinking which leads to me having an even harder time sleeping. I can't help but wonder if there was more to the move to Austin than Sloane's vandalism. It seemed like an extreme reaction to something that wasn't such a big deal. It's not like she assaulted someone.
It was also refreshing to read a book that didn't have two characters immediately fall in love. I enjoyed watching their friendship develop over the course of the book and was sad to see it end but the end was pretty adorable. That word does show up sometimes and it isn't always about my fake pet. Sometimes it is about my favorite trench coat wearing angel or the crime writer/husband of a certain NYPD cop. Now where was I? Sloane gets to know the real Tru which just shows that you can't just assume things about people and I have to wonder about Sloane's mom's taste in friends. Boy I'm glad I didn't have to say that out loud since that's a tongue twister but I think that makes sense. It is pretty early. I don't acknowledge this as an actual time. I should be sleeping right now but I can't.
I look forward to reading more by Tera Lynn Childs. It might just be me but I would like to know more about Tru and his home situation. I think that would make a great read or maybe his perspective from this story since it tended to focus more on Sloane. Maybe it's the series magnet in me seeing things that aren't there but I can't help but feel that this story isn't quite over or maybe that's just wishful thinking. This is a cute story about a girl who solves a mystery and I for one enjoyed it even though I did suspect the person that turned out to be the bad guy.
