Updrift... A Sneak Peek on Reading ListSaturday, April 08, 2017
For Kate Sweeting, love isn’t in the air. It’s in the water.
Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.
Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.
"Maya reported via texts she was up to her eyeballs in sporting activities that summer, attending multiple camps in succession; and Gabe was curiously busy as well, although he wouldn't specify with what. Kate found herself with more time on her hands than usual but she focused on writing and her hobbies rather than seek out other friends." p 35
I wanted to love this book, I mean The Little Mermaid! Is there a better fairy tale? Okay, maybe there is, but this has to be at the top. I appreciate how far away from the Disney version this book is... but something about the writing and me just didn't mix... and I forced myself through the book because Stevens is such a great person.... but for fans of mermaids...
