I’m gonna harshly critique this book bc I feel like it:
I liked the story and the setup. A small town ghost busters with gays kinda thing. That’s what the book had going for it, it’s a cute setup. But the ending was disappointing and unsatisfying. The ending felt like it was crafted for the storyline, not the other way around. After an entire book of secrets and unsolved mysteries, I think there could have been a more complex solution than just Paris is the killer and Logan is a zombie.
The romance was cute but I didn’t feel like it had a good buildup, it kind of just happened out of nowhere. And the Dark really wasn’t explained in a way that titillated me.
The very ending/resolution also didn’t make sense, Logan has been pining to stay in a home after a whole life on the road, and once she has her parents back.. she chooses.. to travel more? Who’s funding this anyway
HOWEVER I liked the characters and the idea of the story, I was invested. It was cute. 3.5/5 from me
I agree with Melody's review. I felt like the general idea was there but it wasn't really executed well. I also felt like the story was dragged on. The book didn't really need to be 400 pages and I felt myself drowning off on some parts. There were like paragraph descriptions for everything that happened, making the whole book just extremely dramatic. I didn't necessarily feel disappointed by the ending but I didn't love it. I also just hated the whole gay coming out with Ashley's mom. I understand that the author was trying to replicate how small-town people would react to gay people but it just felt .... off? I don't know. Like Ashley's mom saying "I don't understand the whole gay thing" just made me uncomfortable. I also felt like the characters made no sense but I didn't hate them. The things they said sometimes I was like ????????????. I say 3/5
