I saw this book in my library, and thought the story to be light enough to complete on a journey, and not very mushy. It was indeed a very easy read, and I finished it in a couple of hours or so. The narration is in a very simple style, and the story flows very quickly. There’s nothing that sticks out as absolutely out of the world, but I personally liked the characters and their actions, especially Joyneel’s character, though looking at it from a realistic point of view, it might not happen like that. It could, but it might not. For me, the thing was that I could know it was a happy ending from the blurb itself. It was quite detailed. A blurb should invoke interest without giving hints to how it ends, I feel. Editing wise, it needs a lot of work. Too many ellipsis where it should have been full stops or commas, and that sort of takes a bit away from the story itself. Overall, a book that definitely bodes well with travel reading!
