Today’s book is This Raging Light:
Author: Estelle Laure
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Summary: How is it that one day Digby was my best friend’s cute twin brother, and then the next he stole air, gave jitters, twisted my insides up?
And with Mom gone, bills to pay and Wren to look after… Why does the best thing happen at the worst time?
So, I received this as an eARC from Netgalley, so thank you for that.
You start off feeling awful for Lucille, and Wrenny, for everything happening, and yet as the book continued, I found myself conflicted as to whether I was reading a conflicted family story, or a romance.
The book seems to flit between the two (not that I’m complaining), but it felt slightly confusing at times).
That said, Estelle’s writing was so easy to read, and the words seemed to jump off of my Kindle and straight into my imagination.
You start to feel really connected to Lucille, as a girl who needs to support her sister, and live her own life, she rules it.
Overall, I quite liked this book, and I found it quite refreshing, and a good, easy read for people who love a bit of fluffy romance, or dysfunctional families.
