eARC BOOK REVIEW#- Something like Redemption (Something like Normal, #2) by Monica James

Title:  Something like Redemption (Something like Normal, #2)  
Author:  Monica James
Publication Date: October 14th 2014 by Limitless Publishing 

Plot:   Some secrets are best left untold...

Mia Lee escaped to the sleepy little town of South Boston, Virginia with the intent to be normal, and to find a place she could call home. 
Sadly for Mia, her past has come back with a vengeance, and forced her to flee yet again. 

This time, however, she’s not alone… 

Mia and Quinn are on the run, fleeing for their lives, while attempting to prove their innocence for a crime they did not commit. 

But with a tainted past like Mia’s, it was inevitable that one day, it was going to catch up to her in a way she never fathomed. 

One ill-fated decision leads to an explosion of unimaginable events, and now Mia and Quinn are not only running for their lives, but also, for their redemption.

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

I liked this one, I did. But it also held some discrepancies which at times disturbed my reading experience a bit.

You know the whole saying, "less is more"? Sometimes I felt that if there was a little less drama and self-doubt it would have made a lot of what went down a wee less complicated.

I mean, yeah, I learned what I wanted to know with some sprinkles filled with twists, turns, and revelations. Not to mention, a cliffhanger at the end!!



But what I was looking for in this follow up was a little more, CLARITY, or even self-realization, if you will.

So...All in all, this read was somewhat of a hand toss for me. I WILL be, however, continuing on to read on for bk 3 though... Hopefully, there isn't so much turmoil and emotional upheaval or distress in that one as well!...

My Rating:
-Overall : 7.5
-Plot : 7
-Writing : 7
-Characters : 7
-Cover : 7.5-8
