GHOSTED, by Rosie Walsh, Pan Macmillan

 

36464087

When Sarah meets Eddie, they connect instantly and fall in love. To Sarah, it seems as though her life has finally begun. And it’s mutual: It’s as though Eddie has been waiting for her, too. Sarah has never been so certain of anything. So when Eddie leaves for a long-booked vacation and promises to call from the airport, she has no cause to doubt him. But he doesn’t call.

Sarah’s friends tell her to forget about him, but she can’t. She knows something’s happened–there must be an explanation.

Minutes, days, weeks go by as Sarah becomes increasingly worried. But then she discovers she’s right. There is a reason for Eddie’s disappearance, and it’s the one thing they didn’t share with each other: the truth.

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

When you have a love story, you need to have a connection felt between the main characters that is built using tension and emotions. You should get into the heads of those involved and connect  with whatever they are going through.  For “Ghosted,” this just didn’t happen.  The premise is interesting enough but the plot is divided and structurally misguided at times, to the point where I found myself bored. Never ever should a reader be bored, especially with a romance novel.

This story had the chance to get right into the deeply rooted emotions behind the characters’ choices but missed the opportunity switching to twists and turns that really didn’t compliment the story, but instead, added frustration and confusion.  Sarah is an interesting character and her development seemed somewhat superficial to me.

I just didn’t connect with Sarah, and found myself not interested in finding out more about Eddie.

An okay read, but I expected more emotional involvement as opposed to ‘crazy’ that really resembled desperation rather than love.  If anything, this novel shows what lengths a person would go to, to find love or a shallow version of it built in seven days.

I gave this book:
