Author: Jamie Jo Wright
Genre: Romantic Suspense
About the book: It’s a story following two female protagonists, Libby and Annalise.
First impressions: I read Wright’s debut novel, The House on Foster Hill, earlier this year. I liked it, so I figured I’d read another book by her. The stories are similar in style but different in many ways.
I think the cover is great. I also feel like the colours help establish the tone of the book.
Characters: I love that everyone is flawed, especially the main characters. They all seem to have secrets, and that makes them more relatable.
The female protagonists are great, and the male characters are likeable as well.
“Never refrain from saying what you think.”
Writing: The story jumps between the past and present. I think Wright did a good job because the novel flows well.
There is more suspense than romance, which is totally fine by me.
Final thoughts: I didn’t predict the ending, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. One antagonist is more surprising to me than the other.
Overall, The Reckoning At Gossamer Pond is a good read. It’s not my favourite, but I had fun. If you like romance, religion, and suspense, check out Wright’s latest novel.
