Incredulity by Kathy Zebert

 

Genre:  Romance, Mystery and Thrillers.

I thought this sounded fun, though I love romance novels they have to have something extra and the mystery here sounded like it would deliver that for me but…

It starts with a prologue, which introduces that jaw dropping moment when Callie realises her new man is going to be tried for murder, and that sounded so intriguing I was hooked. Then we move on to chapter one, and its not until halfway through that we got to the point where Dom is being charged. Until then its just all Callie and Dom watch the sunset…or that’s the way it seemed. Then once the charge is laid events change and Callie has to decide what to do.

I didn’t realise it was such a short read, just 160 pages, 1649 kindle locations and that’s probably why its a fail for me. There just isn’t enough pace to deliver the novel I was hoping, and instead we get all the events but everything is over so quickly, there’s never really any kind of feeling of mystery, danger, edge of seat thrills that I expected. The romance too seemed a bit meh – it was all sweetness and light, happy, happy, happy, there’s wasn’t any kind of conflict, any kind of misgivings, nothing to deliver the angst until the bombshell drops, and even then I couldn’t really believe Dom was guilty especially given the things we get to know.

You win some you lose some. This is a well written novel, an excellent idea, but just too short for me and a little underwhelming. Of course that makes it perfect for those who have limited time but want something a bit deeper than a short story, but that they can pick up and put down easily.

Stars:Three, a good book but didn’t suit me personally
