Today we have a review from book review team member Teri, she blogs at http://teripolen.com/
She chose to read and review Relative Strangers by Helen Treharne
I’ve certainly read my share of vampire books, but this was somewhat of a new take and a fun read.
Sophie is an easy character to like. She’s not perfect – she occasionally acts before she thinks, struggles with the right decisions, and is completely insecure when it comes to men – but that’s what makes it easy to relate to her character. The way her relationship with Mickey gradually developed was very believable and a refreshing change from what I’ve seen in other books of this genre. Sophie’s questionable choices got her into some interesting predicaments in this book, but she never backed down from challenges and played the hand she was dealt.
There were some repetitive words and incorrect word choices in some areas that may have been missed in editing and I felt like the first part of the book contained some backstory that could have been woven into the storyline a little better instead of having several pages of explanation about Sophie’s life.
Relative Strangers has some good laughs, a lot of action, very likable characters, and a nice twist at the end that sets up the next book in this series. A very enjoyable read!
