(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
I did really like the front cover of this book and the blurb of it. I was… less keen on the start of the story. I’m not a fan of the love at first sight thing and that was where this book seemed to be going. I stuck it out, though, and I’m glad I did.
It was interesting to read about Julia’s connection to Cole. The concept of reincarnation is quite a fascinating one and I really liked reading about how Julia gradually began to learn more about her history. And even though I wasn’t too sure of the romance at first, it did get a bit more realistic as the book went on. The comparisons with Hamlet were pretty intriguing, too.
There were a few too many female characters who seemed obsessed with Will and I did find that a little bit annoying, I have to say. Conflict in relationships is good. Conflict that comes from every other woman of the same age as the heroine wanting to steal her man just makes me roll my eyes.
This book was quite a good mix of different genres. The mystery through the book was enough to keep me reading and I really liked the differences and similarities between Cole and Will. I felt that contrast was shown more than between Julia and her previous incarnation.
I did figure out the twist quite easily, but it made sense that the main characters didn’t figure things out. It was nice to see that some of the other characters made an appearance in the past, too, but it wasn’t really explained why they all looked exactly the same as in their past lives.
I thought it was more interesting to see Will’s journey to remembering the past. Julia accepted things a little too quickly and it was nice to see that there was some skepticism involved.
I would definitely like to read the next books in this series. I enjoyed this a lot and it was great to see how everything connected together. This was a really quick and easy read and despite the issues I mentioned earlier, it was still very enjoyable.
