Book Description:
Moving across the country isn’t Hunter’s ideal start to her Junior year of high school. She has no friends to hang out with, no beaches to lounge on, and she’s living just a few miles from the secluded hiking trail where her father died when she was a baby.

Living in Wyoming isn’t all bad, though, thanks to Logan, the handsome veterinary assistant at the animal clinic where she lands an after school job. And he seems just as interested in her as she is in him.

As Hunter begins to settle into her new home, she learns more about the circumstances surrounding her father’s tragic death, and it may not have been the accident everyone believes. Something dangerous lurks in the woods, and Hunter might be the next victim.

My Take on the Book:

There is something so sweet and innocent about the awkward beginnings of a new relationship. It just made me giggle reading the interaction between Logan and Hunter. While I enjoyed the relationship and the building of each character I felt like not enough was given for the story to unfold the way it did. And while I enjoyed the cute awkwardness between Logan and Hunter… I kind of wish that progressed further than the teenage fumblings of 2 characters that don’t seem to communicate enough.

I enjoyed the theme, but I found it was lacking in certain aspects. These so-called 'prophecies' by Gus were very vague and never really answered. And the relationship between Logan in Hunter never really reached its peak and always stayed in that awkward beginning stage which after a while got tiresome. It was a cute book and an interesting read but it missed the mark and the umph factor that I always look for.

It’s got a really big tie into religion which I wasn't expecting, the synopsis never really tells you how religious book actually is which is another thing I wasn't a fan of. It's not the religion per se that bothered me it was the lack of knowing that this book was so religious. So I went into the book thinking is was one way and then left realizing it was completely different. I like a lot of the scenes, quirky characters and a lot of what happened but it was also very predictable and at times rushed or cold.

4 Quills

It wasn’t a bad read. Quite the contrary, it was written well. I just wasn’t super into it. I’m giving it a 4 because the writing was good and the story was easy to follow. The storyline had a lot of potential and I feel like a lot more could have been done. The story just kind of fell flat and the religious aspect had absolutely nothing to do with the lack of umph.
