Re: Crescendo Discussion

retromom, I just finished Crescendo. What a cliffhanger? I am love this series. I like the characters.

I know what you mean. What is up with Nora's mom? I have some many questions and now we have to wait for the third book.

 

This is really good series.

 

I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.

I too am hooked on this series, Reading Patti!  I was shocked seeing it is not my usual genre. I recommend this series also. I found the book hard to put down.

Re: Crescendo Discussion

I hope it's not too late to post on this discussion board.  I had to read "Hush Hush" before reading "Crescendo," and I do think it's made a big difference in the enjoyment of this second book.  I'm not surprised that there was conflict between Nora and Patch--you have to have a story right?  And they do have lots of difficulties to work through.  I was really intrigued and particularly loved the dream seqence that ended with the recognition of Marcie's dad.  I think it would have been great had the author extended that a little more.  I'm hoping for more of those dream sequences as I go along.  It's hard to think of Patch as a "good" guardian angel, when he was the bad angel before.  I'm sure he's not happy with his new position, and is working on something.  Looking forward to continuing the story...

Finished!!! Oy, now I have to wait for the next one!!!! Very cool story. I love how even though she is pulled towards him, she still tries to make up her own mind. :-)

Re: Crescendo Discussion

I thought this was a good story, but think that the reader should read Hush Hush before reading this one. If not, the story lines could be confusing. This one jumped around a lot more than Hush Husg. I was happy to see how some of the other characters become more dimensional.

I agree as well that it is not what I used to read......I find that the characters really come to life and I fell instantly in love LOL with Patch.....is he a good guy or bad guy?? I love the way she keeps throwing things in there about him that makes a person wonder.....I love the writing style and mystery of the book....I am hooked and cannot wait for the third book....

Who we are kind of in the dark about?  Becca did post on twitter about a contest for His Journals..a while back...But she never gives us any hints,,,,Then you can meet her..She is very open  I like her website too,If I really want any news about Becca I go to www.simonandschuster.com   then find her page and go to her website...Sunny  But still digging out in VT...Susan
