Quickie Book Review – The Best of Us by Sarah Pekkanen

The Best of UsThe Best of Us by Sarah Pekkanen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a change of pace for me, because I’ve gotten used to reading novels with action-based paranormal themes. And this was not one of those books.

While there is an over-all story arc, the journey of the characters is more important than the final outcome, in my opinion. Each is flawed, troubled by one thing or another, and comes baring baggage. Throw them into close proximity and drama is bound to happen. And happen, it does.

This novel is compelling, well-written and exacting in the way that Pekkanen explores these characters, exposing the good with the bad. I liked the tone and intricacies in this novel, and I’ll be sure to check out other works from this author in the future!
