Right after I wrote the post about how I was in a reviewing slump, I finished a book that prompted me to gush about it. Maybe this was just what I needed to get me out of my reviewing slump.
I found myself on a Karin Slaughter kick around New Year’s. The moment I finished Broken, I ran to the computer and checked out Fallen via Overdrive. Both books kept me joined at the hip to my nook. I nearly skipped fireworks and friends on New Year’s Eve because all I wanted was to get back to my book!
While reading the Georgia series, I found myself rooting for Will and Sara to get together. So much tension! What’s not to love about the wounded Will or the widowed Sara? Perhaps I would have a different perspective if I had read the Grant County series first and had a better understanding of Sara’s relationship with Jeffrey. But I didn’t. Thus, I longed for the Will and Sara hook up.
Finally! Finally! Will and Sara are together!
Unfortunately, the conclusion of Fallen and the easily forgotten fact that Will is still married to a reckless woman leave me with the expectation that something tragic will happen to their relationship in the next book. I guess we will find out soon enough. For now, I’ll just have to go back and read the Grant County series so that I have a better understanding of Sara’s relationship with Jeffrey. I wonder if that will change my feelings about Sara and Will?
Yes, it seems that I was more interested in the romantic plot than the suspense plot this time around. Hey, it happens.
