REVIEW* Through to You by Emily Hainsworth
Camden Pike has been grief-stricken since his girlfriend, Viv, died. Viv was the last good thing in his life: helping him rebuild his identity after a career-ending football injury, picking up the pieces when his home life shattered, and healing his pain long after the meds wore off. And now, he'd give anything for one more glimpse of her. But when Cam makes a visit to the site of Viv's deadly car accident, he sees some kind of apparition. And it isn't Viv.
The apparition's name is Nina, and she's not a ghost. She's a girl from a parallel world, and in this world, Viv is still alive. Cam can't believe his wildest dreams have come true. All he can focus on is getting his girlfriend back, no matter the cost. But things are different in this other world: Viv and Cam have both made very different choices, things between them have changed in unexpected ways, and Viv isn't the same girl he remembers. Nina is keeping some dangerous secrets, too, and the window between the worlds is shrinking every day. As Cam comes to terms with who this Viv has become and the part Nina played in his parallel story, he's forced to choose—stay with Viv or let her go—before the window closes between them once and for allREVIEW: 4-STARS ****
This Debut Author has come blazing through the starting gate- with a Intriguing, Captivating, Beautiful, Smart, and Thought Provoking story*
After reading this book I knew I had to write a review the same night- Everything about this book screams for me to give it 5 stars- I love it, but something is holding me back that I'm not sure I understand fully yet. Something that has to be small is missing in this story- which happens often, but the difference is I'm sure this Author can deliver what's needed.....
All around this is an amazing story and Highly Recommended- Amazing plot, Perfect Pacing, Beautifully Written, Fantastic Characters, Stunning Ending, and total Movie Material....
About a quarter of the way in I thought that maybe this book isn't for me and I started to lose some interest but not for long... I'm so happy I didn't dwell on it and pushed right through- Though I thought this book was missing a little something at the same time the Author also delivered more than some by not over describing and filling this awesome story with non-sense. The Characters were full of life for me- likable- and they developed well throughout the story.
I loved the twists in this plot- not that I saw them all coming- I did figure out the first major twist...
Viv was a little to accepting of the other world for me and it's seems like a little more exploring would have brought this story around more. The Ending was stunning with the right amount of suspense. The Author leaves room for the reader's mind to wonder, which I enjoyed. I would love to read more from this Author and will keep my fingers crossed that a sequel will come. I'm so happy I had a chance to read this book- It's a great addition to the shelves and I HIGHLY recommend it... ;) Reesa***
