âThe Way to Her Heartâ was the first novel I read by author Amy Reece.
It is an engaging story about two teenagers that could not be further apart from each other on a social level. But due to circumstances â when thrown together â they soon find out they have more in common than they thought.
Unfortunately, the Blurb of the book already gives away quite a lot of the story, which I felt was a shame.
Still the story is told at a believable pace even though at times I was a little confused about the timeline.
The author draws the reader into the story just fine, just the POV in which the story is told didnât allow me to get emotionally involved into what was happening in the story.
And that is my only reason for not giving the book a 5 star review. I would have liked to feel more emotions as the story basically asked for it.
Ahm and as a side notice of someone who did a lot of recipe googling while reading â thank you dear Ms. Reece that was a good idea (not going to say more on that account).
