☆✮ My Review ✮☆
For me, that was sadly the case. Pretty please:
A Veil of Glass and Rain was a simple and cute love story of an Italian girl, Brina, and her American boy, Eagan.
They meet when Brina's nine and Eagan's fourteen and develop a friendship that develops into something more for Brina.
She struggles a lot throughout the book in coming to terms that Eagan may not perhaps share the same feelings for her (as she harbors for him) but we later discover that this is not the case.
Ms. Bagnardi does a great job in creating an enticing world filled with hope and innocence mixed with exotic as well as erotic elements.
However, what did not work for me was basically the execution of it all. It just did not click or connect for me. Throughout the book, I just could not believe a lot of the dialogue and events that took place. It just seemed unrealistic and stretched for story use to heighten the plot.
And the amount of flashbacks with the present...kind of through me through whiplash after a while.
So..all in all, an okay book that while it did intrigue me and mean well, just wasn't my cup of tea. That's not to say that my opinion alone matters because it does not. Readers: you can take it as you will but I highly advise you to read it for yourself and form your own opinion. After all, not everyone has the same tastes so you may have different opinions and may just LOVE it. Many others did.
