To be honest, I didn't connect with Jolie's character. I didn't like her. She was immature and self-centered when it came to her friends and family. Jolie couldn't see past her own needs or the rules she gave herself. That was weird considering how selfless she was when it came to her homeless charity endeavors and her brother, Tristan. It was frustrating reading the story from her point of view. I hated the choices she made.
Reed was a more enjoyable character. I loved when the story switched over to his point of view. I liked that Reed had flaws. He was trying to become a better version of himself, even if he did mislead Jolie at times. His character was easier to relate to.
Another thing that I wasn't quite on board with was the speed at which Jolie and Reed's relationship progressed. It happened too fast for me. She knew nothing about him, and knew she knew nothing about him, yet she jumped into a relationship with him quickly. They were in love before they truly even knew each other.
I hate that this sounds so negative. Some Whisper, Some Shout actually had a lot of great things going on. The writing was good and the story moved at a quick pace. I loved all of the social aspects that were included. The spotlight on both homelessness and mental illness was awesome. I think I would have loved it had I loved Jolie.
Overall, Some Whisper, Some Shout was a good read. I have a feeling other readers are really going to enjoy it, especially those who like romantic suspense novels. I wish I would have connected better with Jolie and enjoyed it more myself.
>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the first in the Truth be Told series with an HEA. Jolie and her Mamie own and run a crepe store. Jolie's mom ran away after the suicide of Jolie's dad and the schizophrenia of Jolie's brother, Tristan. A lot seems to happen to Jolie all at once. Tristan disappears and two men turn up wanting to date Jolie. Reed is a safe news reporter. Reed is a mysterious musician. Jolie always wants to be safe, but is attracted to mysterious.
>There are a few instances in the story of misdirection, as someone is attracting the homeless in the area. Jolie is very unsure of herself in the face of schizophrenia running in her family. She uses coping mechanisms in order to make sure she stays grounded in reality. The relationship between Jolie and Reed is very sweet at first. The relationship then turns to a series of unknowns as both characters are hiding significant parts of themselves from each other.
>The secondary characters really add to the story. Mamie and Jolie's friend and co-worker keep the story moving as new ideas and in some cases misdirection are introduced. The character I really disliked was also the character that didn't seem to fit in with the story. The private investigator turned mom's new boyfriend didn't seem to add much to the story.
>This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the book 4 stars. The story could have done a bit more to bring more attention to plight of the homeless and schizophrenic. Those topics were dealt with a little in order to move the plot, but more information and examples of how hard it is to deal with both would have been interesting.
