My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really don’t know what made me pick up The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, other than the title and book cover. When I read the first page, I knew it would fill my need for something paranormal. Can’t get stuck in the same old, same old rut.

“Mara Dyer doesn’t think life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can.

She believes there must be more to the accident she can’t remember that killed her friends and left her mysteriously unharmed. There is.

She doesn’t believe that after everything she’s been through she can fall in love. She’s wrong.”

Mara Dyer is a compelling character whose journey sucks you in, chews you up and spits you out. What a ride!

The characters are real and mysterious. You don’t know whom to trust. There are twists and turns. Surprises and shocks. I. Loved. This. Book. I didn’t want it to end. Guess what? There’s a sequel due out later this year. I can hardly wait!

Again, I ask, what happened to stand alone books. In this case, I’m more than happy there’s a sequel. It’s a gift from a wonderful writer.

  • I am such a sucker for some good mysterious tragedy. The opening lines you quote here are very intriguing, I’m definitely adding this to my TBR list! Isn’t it great when you find out there’s a sequel to a book you love? I hope it lives up to expectations!

    • I hope it does too, Lauren. I’m afraid it won’t, because I was so enthralled with this one. I’m ready to read it again!
