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.

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.

      Book covers can have a huge influence on a book, I never used to look much at them pre kindle/online book buying, but now there’s so many books out its become really important to hook readers right from the off with a good cover. it was the cover that first drew me to this, I love stories about musicians.
