I thought the idea behind this novel was brilliant - imaginative and unique. This is not your typical romance - in all the right ways!
This is the story of love and loss, sprinkled with humor and insight. The characters are real, complex, and loveable. (I absolutely LOVE Ahren!)
My favorite part of this book was the romance. So, for all or you romantics out there - you won't be disappointed!
I wish I could rate this book ten stars! It's one of my favorite reads this year
Genevieve stole my heart: the little girl who grew up next to a graveyard and loved the boy who was four years older. She suffers great loss and is unsure if what she feels is normal or just part of this quirk to her nature that others think is a bit off. It’s an amalgam. I have never read anything like this before.
To be completely honest, some of the storytelling could use a bit of a shave. The retelling of information doesn’t need to happen as much as it did. But with the overall feel of this book and the sweetness that is Gen and Ahren, I can overlook it.
There are lessons to be learned here and a firm message that no matter how you grieve or how you handle death, everyone does it differently. It’s a wonderful story filled with laughter and a bit of heat (winkyface) that makes The Morbid and Sultry Tales of Genevieve Clare a great read.
I absolutely loved Genevieve and Ahren. I mean not only were those two perfect for each other, but they were just really nice people. My heart hurt so much for them though; they'd had to deal with so much. I loved Gen's big heart, and willingness to help those she loved and cared for. I loved how decisive Ahren was and also how caring too. I loved seeing Gen with her best friend Rocky and how they supported one another.
Another part I absolutely loved was all the cake in the book. I would love to get my hands on some of those recipes, especially some of the cakes using during a tasting. In particular a wedding cake. My mouth was watering every time cake was mentioned. Another favorite part of mine had to do with how everything tied back into Ahren, Gen, and their families. Especially the "oldies". I take that back, I didn't like them, I loved them, especially for the wisdom they gave Gen and Ahren.
I really feel like the message this book has to give is a beautiful and positive one that sort of gets lost in the blurb. I don't think it does the story an iota of justice. This book was certainly worth the sleep I lost because I couldn't put the book down. I love J.B. Hartnett for writing something new and daring. It's certainly refreshing and unlike anything I can recall reading. It's my first book by her and it's set the bar really high for any that will follow.
I hardly know what to say. I immediately fell in love with this story. A few of my reasons are personal. For starters, it’s set in my backyard. I spent summers on the Russian River as a kid. I know the area well and I love it. I had no trouble picturing every scene and JB’s ability to set a scene made it even easier. Another reason could be that one of her characters closely resembles my dad. None of that matters. Without those similarities, I still would have loved this story. It’s an original story line with a clever plot and witty dialogue. I found it real and insightful. This was my first JB Hartnett book, but it won’t be my last. She’s found a forever fan in me. Anyone who can make me laugh and cry this many times in one story is definitely worth reading again. Not only did I laugh and cry a lot, they very often went hand in hand. JB managed to make me cry and then sob within the same scene, all this without once needing to roll my eyes at corny, stupid, or sappy dialogue. Like I said, this story is very real.
I loved the relationship Gen had with her clients. I loved the creativity of her profession and the way JB wrote it with a realistic twist and a fair bit of class (most of the time). She managed to make something so difficult truly funny and heartwarming to read.
The love story between the two lead characters is so real and heartbreaking, but also sooo incredibly redeeming at the same time. I found Gen and Ahren’s child-like vulnerability completely disarming. On the flip side, I found their strength just as appealing. Real life is hard.Read more ›
