The Words Between Us Review


 About the Book

A reclusive bookstore owner hoped she'd permanently buried her family's sensational past with a new name. But when the novels she once shared with an old crush begin appearing in the mail, it's clear her true identity is about to be revealed, threatening the new life she has painstakingly built. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts

I finished this book the other day. I have been mulling it over ever since. I really struggled on my rating for this one because I am conflicted. When I got a bit past the middle of this story I was planning on five stars-hands down. But then the ending happened and I am not sure how I feel about it all. 
So the first part of the book you are still getting to know the characters and the feel of the story. It moves a little slow yet you don't want to put the book down. You really have no idea but will happen and who everyone is because it is given to the reader in pieces. There is a dual time line (which I LOVE) and I thought this part was very well done. Once things started unfolding I became more engrossed and truly couldn't stop reading. There are some unrealistic things but this is fiction. There is a lot of time spent on one aspect of the bookstore that I still don't see the point. The way the book ended is what really summed up my rating. It was very much so rushed and with all of the things going on (this book is packed!) and mystery it seemed like the ending was thrown together. But this is still a 4 star book in my opinion. Erin writes in such a beautiful way some of her sentences I wanted to re-read because they were so well done. Her writing in this novel is excellent and it is her best book yet.  
I highly recommend if you are looking for something new!

Four stars.
