Olivia Howe has produced a book that is nothing short of exceptional.
Emotionally this is rollercoaster and it took a lot of time and patience to be able to get to the end. Not that the book was hard work, quite the opposite, my issue was the fact that the book took more than I had anticipated out of me.
The mystery that surrounds the air crash is crazy and as much as she should be able to be left in peace to mourn and then try and rebuild her life after Derrick’s death, but it is obvious fairly early on that for Kenna, that was never going to be the case, especially when the seed of doubt and suspicion is planted in her head.
There was more going on that she could have possibly ever imagined and not only is her heart broken at the loss she has suffered but now, her life is in danger.
Kicking her into action, whoever took the decision to try and remove her from the equation did themselves no favours at all because Kenna is one determined woman, I suppose having someone trying to kill you would do that but she is galvanised into taking her search for the truth to the next level and she will not leave one single stone unturned until she gets to the bottom of what the heck is going on.
Derrick was her reason for being, she loved him implicitly and being without him is a painful life sentence. One that she is determined to understand.
The whole situation is completely screwed and Olivia Howe keeps everything close to her chest, she tantalisingly drip feeds details, slowly and deliberately unpeeling the layers of a mystery that would have rivalled Miss Marple.
The story had me on tenterhooks, could Kenna keep her head and the rest of her for that matter out of trouble? What secrets could she learn along the way, not only about the crash but also about herself?
A superb read, one that has shot right into my top ten!
Kenna becomes a suspect in an assassination ring, which she had no clue what that even is.
There was so much more going on then she could have possibly imagined and now her life is in danger.
I have been around so many people when they have lost there husband's and hit rock bottom and I knew the emotions of Kenna while reading the book, her pain, anger, grief and finding the strength to let go.
This was such an amazing story and so many emotions you go through as your reading the book. You can't help but route for Kenna as she go's on journey to find out the truth.
She is pretty spectacular. I mean it isn't everyday that someone survives a plane crash but to learn the love of your life had perished in said crash, talk about starting out with a bang. Then to be thrown into a world full of lies, deceit and danger because of it. On top of that, there is the whole, trying to put the pieces of your life back together again after the whole traumatic experience. I really feel that Kenna's reactions to everything were realistic. I felt her confusion, pain, anger, grief and letting go. I was nervous that with everything she threw herself into to try and get to the bottom of the whole sordid mess that she wouldn't be able to work through her feelings. I was wrong- big time. Of course, it didn't hurt that there was the super sexy Nathan there.
Nathan was the hero that this book needed. He not only let Kenna pursue the perpetrators but he was her sounding board and shoulder to lean on. He was supportive and protective at the same time.Things get really intense and while emotions are high there are somethings that are said and done between Nathan and Kenna that had me cheering. These two aren't lacking in chemistry at all. They fight hard and love harder. That being said, I felt that there were some holes in the development of their relationship. I just wanted a bit more- some connecting outside of the drama.
Olivia Howe packed quite a punch in this book. My emotions were high from page one and I just had to know what would happen. I kept thinking to myself how much more can this girl take? Just when I thought I had something figured out there would be another twist to throw me, and Kenna, off track. Overall, I found Pretty Bird quite enjoyable. And if you like your love stories to start in the most unconventional of ways, then you won't want to miss this one.
The quote by Rose Kennedy sent shivers down my spine !
Phenomenal ! Epic ! Let me share it ..... " It has been said , `time heals all wounds ." I do not agree . The wounds remain . In time , the mind , protecting its sanity , covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But , it's never gone ."
We meet Derrick an Kenna on their flight to Hawaii and what's meant to be a romantic getaway ends in tradegy and Kenna is the sole survivor.
Not only is Kenna having to deal with being the sole survivor and mourn the loss of her beloved but she has the added shock and trauma of facing the reality that the one she loved wasn't who he seemed to be . She was in denial for a while but sadly has to face facts when yet another attempt is made on where life . My heart just aches for her .
I will tell you this much though , Kenna, has balls of steel and is fearless. For her to move on she has to take vengeance and find closure , which she does . This is one kickass babe !!
Pretty Bird is the first book I've read by Olivia Howe and it was a five star introduction filled with drama , suspense , romance an action .
Looking forward to reading more of Olivia's work .
