I hold a star back on my review because as I read, the main character, Molly, often became obtuse and a little annoying. If someone I trust tells me they believe my grandmother is dying, I'm going to find out what's going on NOW. I'm not going to put it off or let anything else interfere with finding out the truth. I feel like important talks and important information was withheld or delay throughout the book on purpose to prolong the story when it didn't need to be. There is plenty of story in this book. The was plenty to keep me interested without using plot tricks to keep me hanging on and I feel like the 'drowning' and 'choking' bit was a trick. As a reader, I didn't need the revelation that OMG "Cassie never said I would drown. I came to that conclusion on my own." didn't need to be there. The visions where suggestive and Cassie never got the entire vision since she didn't have the dreams, we readers understood that without the over dramatic OMG moment. That being said, I would have believed this ending better without the 'misunderstand'. It would have been a little more realistic if Molly would have just admitted to being confused. As I read, I imagined a million other scenarios for the outcome of Cassie's visions and while I think choking was a good alternative, I take issue with the way it was presented and resolved.
I'm still very much a fan of Kerry Lonsdale, and I must admit, the soulmate aspect of this book really pulled me in. Well done!
I had to digest the book for a few hours before sitting down and writing this review, to try and capture in just a few words what I think about this novel. (I don't like reading long reviews, so I tend not to write them).
Riveting, Heartfelt, Emotional, Suspenseful, Heartbreaking, and Loving. All adjectives I would use to describe the story about Molly, her daughter Cassie, Molly's Nana, and throw in Molly's old flame - Owen. I absolutely could not put this book down, I was immediately drawn into their story and had to know what happened next, immediately!
This is a novel about love first, and what you won't do to keep those around you safe and protected.
I received an ARC of All the Breaking Waves in exchange for an honest review, and honestly - I have another book hangover. What's the cure for that? Kerry's third book - not due out until next year!
