This book was interesting. I seem to be in a rut about reading books where one of the two lead characters is crabby and cranky throughout most of the story. This is one of those books. The plot line was good and the book was fun to read with rich detail about the Florida swampland and the wildlife and then Mother Nature and a hurricane thrown in for added fun, but at times it was overshadowed by the crabbiness of Kayli in regards to the man who was supposed to be her HEA, Skye. It was always a nagging thought while reading the book. She fluctuated between really liking him and wanting to just fall head over heels to being surly and annoyed with every move he made.
I think the author put too much into that aspect of her book when it should have been less. I wanted to smack her upside the head every time she had these odd (not sure if they were girlfriends or Mother Hen) feelings towards a co-worker that she continually tried to ignore yet placate. Right up to the very end she was cranky and it detracted from the pleasure of the story line that I know the author was trying to convey.
I wouldn’t say to not read it but I would say to go into reading it with the knowledge that Kayli will truly frustrate you from beginning all the way to the end. As earlier stated even though for me it detracted from the story line somewhat, the story was good.
