It’s somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars, actually, as I quite liked this Celtic mystery. Scarlet has just moved to Ireland after her mother passed away, and she is still settling in her new school, an all male boarding school. Soon, however she finds out there is more to this world than she ever expected.
The story started with Scarlet how fabulous all the boys at her new school are, and I admit, for a second I was worried. Luckily once she has established how interesting all the Connelly boys are the story much improved. It had me guessing for a while and even though not everything came as a surprise to me in the end, it didn’t bother me. Some things were a bit glanced over in this book, but I would like to see if they are explained further on.
What I liked was that while it is clear from the start who the love-interest will be, the other brothers are not entirely pushed into the sidelines but rather play their own part in the story. I would like to see where this is going.
The author provided me with a free copy of this book. This review, however, solely contains my own opinions.
This was my read for square 18. Set in a school. However, except for the opening scenes the book doesn’t take place in school, so I will only roll one dice this turn.
