Title: Eighty Days Red
Author: Vina Jackson
Series: Eighty Days #3
Okay this is a first for me. I never read a series out of order. And to be honest I didn’t feel lost or confused about what was going on in the story. So that is a positive. I am sure I missed a lot of back story but I am okay with that.
Now on to the rest of the story…I really wanted to like it I really did and there were some things that I did enjoy about it. There is a sweet romance under it all but there was more that I didn’t care for. I love a book that is descriptive I truly do; this though, it felt too descriptive. At one point there was the description of a concert and I just caught myself skimming past some parts because it was just too much. I mean I get it the girl that was at the drums was playing and her arms were moving to bang on them, but we then get more description… her shirt is soaked in sweat I was waiting to get the description on how it rolled down her face and what it smelled like and felt like. It was just too much for me at times.
Overall I liked the idea of the story. I just felt like there could have been so many pages taken out on over detail alone. There were some steamy scenes, and some interesting stories on the violin that I did enjoy. I did love that we got a little imagery that went along with the story. 🙂 I kind of wish more people would add pictures to their books. That would be so fun I think 😉
