I was disappointed that the author didn't have the main character check what had happened to her former self before she became "Casey", but that may have been because she was emotionally finished with her old life. I'm not sure, but that's a very minor issue.
Other than that one thing with the story, I absolutely LOVED it. It was a story I wasn't able to put down and finished it all in the same day. Liza O'Connor will definitely be on my list of authors to watch!
I enjoyed meeting the characters. Casey/Cass was totally relatable, as the author did a very good job building the character, and making you not only like her, but care for her and her situations. Her father was someone I came to like, once I found his motives to be pure; but the reason for the previous bad relationship was never brought to light. The reader THOUGHT they understood, until that was revealed to be "not as it appeared". But it didn't detract enough to be an issue. Her mother was one I would have loved to slap some sense into, which says that the author created a believable, definitely unlikeable character.
There were two other strong characters, who both caused their own heartache, to Cass....and me. Both were well developed and likeable...AND unlikeable at times. Those kinds of emotions are true to reality, which I think adds to the depth of a book.
I don't really care for romance, but this book held just a whisper of it, and it played out without making me want to gag (although a little too "spelled out" at tim4s). There was humor, although it was dark, but it fit the circumstances, and I appreciated it. I liked the storyline; it's not one that has been worn out from overuse, and it was a refreshing change for me.
I would happily recommend this book.
Ms. O'Connor writes stories with wit and engaging characters. I am a fan of her stories for their off-beat characters where anything happens. I loved how Cass was more matter-of-fact with her solving of Casey's problems. Already all the things that Casey had tried only made things worse...and we come to learn that it may have been a murder (rather than a suicide). It's like you can't see the forest for the trees and in this story Cass is able to see things that Casey and those who love her couldn't!
And for those who thought that Miss Cass didn't get her own reward... phew! She does... after all, who wouldn't love a chance to go back and live life again knowing all that you know! Just imagine getting another chance to find love and happiness! I believe that's a big reward... and in receiving, she made so many people around Casey happy....
When I started reading Saving Casey, I wondered if Ms O'Connor had given too much away in the publicity material she (and friends) have published. Some of the things I thought could have been revealed to good effect when reading the story were already known.
Not to worry! There are twists and turns aplenty. If you're like me, some will be 'Oh, yeah, of course,' and some will be 'Wow! Just, wow!' All were welcome and completely fit the plot.
There are a few questions I wanted answered but were not, but none that detracted from the warm feeling of satisfaction when I hit the 100% mark. I read Saving Casey on my Kindle, and opened it using Kindle for Mac. Aside from a few typos that didn't bother me, there were no issues with either. Of course, the cover art looked better on the color display of my desktop. My perennial gripe: no tale of contents, but then, fiction isn't meant to be skipped hither and yon, so that's not a big deal either.
I categorize this as speculative fiction, as a result of the inciting incident. The rest of the book is well grounded as a YA and adult romance with thriller elements to spice the brew.
I highly recommend Saving Casey to anyone looking for an exciting story incorporating renewal; romance, lost and found, and opportunities, also lost and found. And I strongly suggest watching out for Ms O'Connor's next offering.
