Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
So much more intense and tormenting than Hush, Hush! I literally read this book in 48 hours, which is quite an accomplishment working full-time and having wee ones to care for at home.
The twists and turns were unpredictable and solid. I loved the ending. I wasn't a huge fan of Patch in book one, and the way the relationship played out in this book was very satisfying, although I think Nora is exponentially stronger emotionally than I would have been in her position on numerous occasions.
The elaboration on the back-stories introduced in Hush, Hush was welcome. I honestly didn't know what to expect going into this book because, as I said earlier I wasn't hugely impressed with the first book. I was ssoooo NOT disappointed!
A lot of people have complained about Vee's personality and I just want to add, YES she is annoying, NO it doesn't get any more endearing in this book, and YES you CAN deal with it. I think her defects compliment Nora's own borderline Neurotic tendencies perfectly and if the BFF were written any other way the storyline would suffer immensely, especially towards the end.
I wouldn't advise any fan of Mystery, Suspense, Paranormal, or YA Romance pass this one up. This was truly an exhilarating read!
