Read full description of the books The Kissing Stars:This is the first book I have read by this author. She's a great writer and storyteller, and I certainly plan to read more of her books. She's great at description, and can certainly set a mood and a scene. There was a lot to like about this book, and I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. I certainly liked the hero - he was very engaging. For the most part it was an interesting story, a believable romance, and I enjoyed the quirky secondary characters. The author injected humor, but it never took over, or interfered with the more serious aspects of the storyline.
So, why only 3 starts? Two reasons. First, the heroine had information she was keeping from the hero. When they first reconnected, it was understandable. But, she held onto the information for far too long into the book, and I found myself thinking over and over "tell him already, he deserves to know." I just kept getting more and more angry with the heroine. And that was the other problem for me, the heroine. I understand that good writers want to make their protagonists as realistic as possible, and that entails giving them flaws. This heroine's flaws just didn't work for me. When she was upset, she turned vicious towards the hero. The first time it happened was somewhat understandable. There had just been a devastating occurrence in her life, and she was only 17. However, years later, when she and the hero reconnect, she's older and more mature. Yet she does it again, and for something far less devastating than the earlier event. Her unwillingness to divulge her secret, and this nasty behavior, just turned me off to her. When I don't like either the hero or heroine, it's difficult for me to enjoy the book, no matter how well written.
Other readers may disagree. We all have our pet peeves, and the author just happened to use some plot devices that hit some of mine. However, as I said, this author is a great storyteller, and so I look forward to reading more of her books.
