Review of Waiting for April by Jaime Loren
By: Jaime Loren, Aussie author extraordinaire
Publisher: Momentum, my fav publisher ever!
Length: Who cares? I didn't. I freakin' wanted more when it was done!
* I received this novel in exchange for an honest review *
Waiting for April by Jaime Loren was all 5 out of 5 stars in my book! I finished this late last night and it took me a while to process what I'd read, in the best kind of way.
We're instantly introduced to April and as the jacket states, she's died 19 times. That instantly drew me in. Why has she died? Why has she always came back?
At the heart and soul of her deaths and reincarnations is the leading male character, Scott Parker.
Without giving too much away, April is tethered to him in life and beyond death. Ms. Loren did an incredible job conveying the depths of Scott's despair at finding her each time, loving her each time and watching her die each time.
I could feel his genuine love for a girl that always slipped through his hands right as he found her and right as her soul recognized his.
To find out what and who was behind this great mystery was shocking to say the least. While the secondary characters were fleshed out in great detail, I had no idea they were connected in such a way. I didn't see the end coming. The twist at the end of the book caused me to lose some sleep only from the shock of it.
The timelines in the book and historical detail were perfect, weaving together a magical story through the centuries.
Overall, I'd recommend Waiting for April to lovers of paranormal. The premise of Waiting for April was a wonderful story about love, loss, and hope...hope that when you love someone, in one way or another, they will always come back to you.
I sincerely hope Ms. Loren has book two in progress. While Waiting for April can certainly be considered a stand alone, there is so much more that I want to know. These characters were endearing and will be remembered long after reading the last page.
