Stale and pointless: a missed opportunity!
As much as I appreciated Silver Sparrow, I disliked this new book by Ms. Jones. In many ways it was predictable and too similar to her other book, which probably explains why the end came as no surprise.
The original twist in my mind would have been a happy ending for the three major characters of this novel, a broader kind of love so to speak, but of course we're miles away from it here.
In fact, this book just presents a whole bunch of sterotypical relationships and tries to justify them all, even those at opposite ends from one another.
And having Atlanta as the setting doesn't help either, however much I love the city and appreciated it in Ms. Jones's previous novels.
That's why I consider this book a missed opportunity.
