I do think this book went back to the regular style of the series compared to the previous book that seemed to pushed the boundaries of the characters and style. Which is a nice balance for the series to have.
The characters are fairly well developed and definitely fit in with the way AJ has written other characters. At times they can seem not as in depth as other writers may write to me, but they fit well for the story being told and the style. Once I let go of expectations and comparisons, I sit back and just enjoy the authors style as is, and really would not want to change it. I also like that her style of character does not necessarily fit perfect with any initial expectation that I may start to have. They actually come across more realistic to me because of this. I like how the heroine in this story has a roughness that can seem scattered at times. She does not always do exactly as I would expect. But for me she fits in well with the story.
I also enjoyed seeing a more technical savvy character in the story. The hero had a very different strength than some of the other hero’s in the series and he had no problem finding his niche. I thought this story actually made the club feel more rounded out with different characters.
I really enjoyed how AJ subtly weaved in the use of the tarot cards and the heroine’s heritage. It was quite cute and fitting. It wasn’t an overpowering part of the story or character, nor was it done as if the character understood and followed something exactly as her ancestors may have. Rather this felt more real for what she probably learned growing up as she did and picking up things on her own. The tarot was not the driver of the story, and yet is quite an integral part of it. This is one of AJ’s strong points to me – how she can weave a small detail in throughout a book and series.
I also liked the additional insight into Dragon’s personality we get in the book. Each book seems to add a bit more to him, and I hope someday AJ is able to tell his story and find him a happy ever after.
Not every action is described in the story (other reviews have noted that they felt something was missing when scenes took place in the background. For example, what could be thought of as a main villain was more of a side issue in life, even though it did shape the heroine’s entire life. It wasn’t what the story was really about and I did not think needed a bigger role.). I don’t have a problem with this for the story. I think the scenes fit fine for what is being told. I don’t go into an AJ Downey story expecting everything to be described and for me I really like what AJ choses to use in her stories and what she leaves out. This is something I have come to expect and enjoy in an AJ story. I actually find I get more out of an AJ story when I reread it, which I so far always do with the books in this series. It settles in and then I get pulled in to her world easier once my brain processes it first.
This was a worthwhile read with characters I will be visiting again.
