A Great New Book

Before Ever AfterBefore Ever After by Samantha Sotto

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I received this as a goodreads first-reads giveaway.

I really loved this book. It is well-written and so unique. I did have a slight nagging on occasion that Max and Shelly's attraction to one another could have initially been more believable, but, as stated, the nagging was slight. And the rest of the story more than made up for it. I loved the characters and all of the stories on the "slight detour." It's amazing when an author can spend so much time recounting side-stories, yet still develop the central characters so much. This is Sotto's first novel, but I hope not the last!

My one major complaint: Where is the recipe for the baked eggs? Must...have...baked...eggs!
