Halfway There: A Paranormal Women's Fiction Novel (Midlife Mulligan Book 1) by Eve Langlais - Review
I discovered this book as part of the newly released #PWF Fab 13. Eve Langlais is a new to me author and sadly I don't think this was the best introduction for me.
It's very difficult to explain what I thought about this book without giving away spoilers, which generally in reviews I am not a fan of, but I will say that this was nothing that I was expecting.
The pacing of the book didn't work for me, it felt slow and dragged out, and by the time I got to the end I found myself questioning what the point of a lot of it was.
I think the biggest disappointment for me was how the paranormal side was handled. To say more would basically give away most of the plot, but although the end left things open for things to start happening in book 2, book 1 didn't go in any direction I could have anticipated, and not in the "oh that is an awesome twist kind of way".
I don't look at other reviews before reading a book, but I did sneak a peek before writing my review, and for the most part it seems as though I may be out here on my own little ledge with this opinion. With the exception of a couple of bloggers, readers in general seem to be loving it. Perhaps they were already fans, or perhaps I am too picky. Either way it doesn't change my opinion.
A sadly just scraping in at 3 stars from me.
