Aurora has just lost her husband Jake in a car accident. She tries to go on with her life but is continually brought back to her grief through flashbacks and learning secrets about her husband’s life from other people and the ghost living in her house. She wants to believe that Jake truly was the man of her dreams but something in her is starting to doubt their relationship.
For class I had to pick a romance book that was self-published and I landed on this one. I don’t want to say too much because I appreciate how much work it must be to publish your own novel but I found too many problems with the writing to really enjoy it. I felt like Bell was just skimming the surface and not expanding on the different conflicts that she presented to Aurora. Bell also referenced movies or books way too many times to describe something instead of just describing it herself. For example, instead of telling the reader about a car, she just stated it was exactly like the car in “As Good As It Gets.” But this movie comparison happened so often that I honestly just skimmed the last 20 pages.
