The Songbird’s Call, by Rachael Herron

The Songbird’s Call, by Rachael Herron

The Songbird's Call (The Songbirds of Darling Bay Book 2) by [Herron, Rachael]

Genre:  Romance.women’s fiction

I’ve never read any of Rachael’s novels, but they seemed to be stand alone so even though I missed book one I thought I’d be ok with this.
From the point of view of book two when I’d not read book one it was fine. I could follow the backstory, guess where there are spaces, and that wasn’t an issue. I just found it hard to actually drum up interest in Molly or Colin.

I started a couple of times and put aside. For some reason I just wasn’t being drawn into the story, just felt like an onlooker, whereas in books I love I feel I’m there with the characters, happy and sad for them but with Molly and Colin I just felt detached.
Maybe I’m just not in the right frame of mind for this story and it would work better for me later.

There’s no reason for me not to like it, the writing is clear and the story easy to follow, but I gave up about halfway through.
I really thought I’d like this story so I might at some point come back and try again, and of course if I do like it then I’ll edit this review, but for now its a two, didn’t like it for me. Remember though, that’s not the book, just my feelings of it, against the many, many readers that adore this couple. Make your own choice.

Stars: Two, didn’t work for me right now, maybe I’ll come back to it in a few months though.
