Book Review: A FRAGILE WILL
A short little book that I enjoyed very much. These are the kind of mysteries that made me start loving reading. A Fragile Will, is a book that has a great mixed of romance, suspense, and cozy dialogue. It is a fun read that you won't get a headache trying to read. The author is able to write a story that keeps you entertained.
This book starts out with an unemployed high school teacher named Cassandra, whom I really enjoyed. I felt like her character was really deep and interesting. I loved the fact that her love of literature was prominent in the book. I am an avid reader so I love when characters have a love of learning.
Cassandra takes a job at a local nursing home. which is just something she is doing to make ends meet while she is currently searching for a new job! Just when her luck is looking up, drama erupts in her life. This is a very face paced mystery!
With that said, I really disliked the ending. The fast-paced story I loved in the beginning, came to a screeching halt. I honestly wanted to stop reading at times. During the ending, which didn't turn out how I expected, the conversations just seemed stale, parts just felt so over dramatic, but I don't think it ruined the book in any way.
This is a book I am really glad to have and it really still amazes me that publishers and awesome authors feel that I am equipped to read and review their books. So thank you, Glen Ebisch for providing me with a free copy of your great book.
