Review :

Fade Into You is the third basically standalone novel in the Shaken Dirty series by Tracy Wolff.

Even though I only read this one book – and was able to enjoy it – I would still recommend to read them in the right order, as I found myself missing out on some sublines referring to the previous books, that were strategically thrown into the plot at certain times.
It did not make to story confusing or disturbed the reading, it was just that I felt I had missed something.
Anyway … I need to say that I was kind of angry with the author for the beginning of the book (and a little for the end too) …because the main part of the book was one great plotline aiming for a five star review. There were some real great and deep dialogues.
Some great developed characters with emotions that felt real to me. But I almost did not get to this part because I was thinking after a few pages of the opening chapters that I might have been wrong about this book having a good plot judging from the blurb.
As it was a new to me author I went in with a blank page and after the first pages I found myself getting angry as I could sense the good story but the introduction to the characters felt not good enough to me. Rather the opposite was the case.
I can get the place the author was coming from wanting to introduce the characters to each other – but having the problem that on one side Poppy was supposed to know Wyatt but on the other was not supposed to know him at that precise moment.
I really get it … but the solution chosen was not a good one in my opinion as it drastically dampened my expectations for the remaining story. These opening chapters bring a false view on Poppy – I cannot say anything more precise without spoilers so I have to focus on just telling – a woman like the Poppy the reader gets to know in the main part of the book – would never do what that Poppy did in the beginning …
Ahm no- let me rephrase that in –“would never do it THE WAY that Poppy did it in the beginning” – meaning not the “WHAT” but the “HOW” …
Anyway also the ending was to fast for my liking – the build up tension of the book needed more in my opinion.
But in total – even if my comment my not seem like it … the main middle part of the book really made up for that beginning. As I said – great dialogues and deep insights – good plotline … and honestly a really recommendable read
