I signed up to be a tour host for Stealing Promises but held off on my review... so I'm here today to finally share my review and explain why I posted it after the tour.
If you want to see my full tour post, including an interview with Brina Courtney and exclusive teasers just click here.
The Reason for the delay posting:I waited to post my review because while I enjoyed Stealing Promises, I didn't quite love it. I don't like to post reviews with mediocre ratings when I'm part of a tour because they are meant to promote the book positivity. I guess it comes down to a matter of respect in my opinion.
Writing Style:Brina Courtney's writing is articulated well but vague at times. I feel the storyline progressed too quickly and lacked substance. The plot was far too predictable; it needed something unique to make it stand out from other books dealing in the same subject manner. The character development was quite good, possibly the best aspect of the writing.
My Opinion:I felt like I've heard this story before. It's a classic tale of how to deal with the devastating loss of a loved one. Everything starts off too good to be true and falls apart all at once after the death. Stealing Promises had the potential to be outstanding, but due to the lack of details and originality it became rather boring at times.
Overall, Stealing Promises was an okay and quick read. I say give it a chance, never judge a book by it's cover or just one mediocre review.
