A Bit Cheesy, But A Good Romantic Suspense
4 out of 5 stars
Love Sold Separately was one of those books that at first listen I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it. The beginning just felt like it was going to be a bland book, but I couldn’t have been further off. Sure, some of the dramatic scenes and the “no, it was HIM, no, HIM!” felt a bit like they were out of a soap opera, but I’ll be honest… I enjoyed it.
Now, as I said above, this was a bit cheesy, but it was a really enjoyable romantic suspense novel. Meister was able to keep me guessing throughout and kept providing what felt like definitive proof over and over again, but then would sprinkle in some doubt. It was fun to read and as I got into the meat of the book I couldn’t stop until I knew what happened.
Dana was one of those characters that at the beginning there wasn’t any real good reason to like her, she was almost unlikable like the beginning of Schitt’s Creek – but as I got into the book I realized that she was a real person who flaws and that’s okay. Once you get to know her and her family dynamic a lot more started to come into view. And as the story progresses there were things that I was like “oh come on, stop that” but those seemed to fade away as things started heating up at work and she was more focused on trying to figure out what happened to Kitty.
Overall, an enjoyable Romantic Suspense novel that kept me in suspense. Stacey Glemboski killed it in her narration of this one, she really kept me interested and listening late into the night.
