So Caught Up in You, A Two Tickets to Paradise Novel, Tracy Como

Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I’ve mixed feelings about this novel. Some parts – the romance, the characters, the basic idea, worked really well. I even “felt” the posession that poor Danielle was stuck with. Somehow though the humour, rather than being funny as it ought to have been, just felt kind of forced and slapstick to me…then add in the problems and the dotttiness of the Montgomery family and it felt like there was just too much in the book, one of those situations where there’s so many plots and incidences that they lose their impact, and become just Meh….Its a shame because the characters of Danielle and Mason were great, Boone was a real gem, but the others…well I just felt they seemed too OTT, even given the setting.
So, I found myself enjoying the basic story ( though not the persona of Miss Promiscuous ) and the romance, but the rest? Miss P was just weird, a shame as the idea is fun, but she felt like a caricature rather than a real – if in spirit only – person. The investigations and the families, the humour, the weird interactions and obsessions? They just detracted from the story for me rather than added, though they were needed to carry the novel they just didn’t run together well for me. As always though that’s just my opinion – others will disagree…
Stars: three – it is a good story, a lighthearted way to spend a few hours – just that for me its not a great book.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
