Jolie Is Somewhere (Madame Budska Book 2) by Alana Cash

jolie   Not my cup of tea….   **

Having read Saints In the Shadows (book 1), I was looking forward to book 2. Book 1 was gripping and hard to put down, this one not so much.

Alana Cash is a good writer. Her descriptions pull you into the story and make you feel you are standing with the characters watching the events unfold. The problem in this book, is that the story doesn’t really go anywhere. I kept reading, hoping for a twist or turn or even a hint of the brilliance I had found in book 1.

This is a story of redemption, of betrayal, of human kindness, of how we look at life. While these are good themes for a novel, Cash doesn’t do justice to them. Even the metaphysical aspects, the category for which it is written, fall short.

Both book 1 and 2 suffer from poor editing and distracting typos. Book 2 even more so.

This one gets two stars
