Cross My Heart

Cross My Heart - Sasha Gould To be honest, I wasn't crazy about Cross My Heart.It wasn't bad, not in the slightest. This book and I just didn't click. Despite being relatively short, Cross My Heart seemed to drag on for me. While I knew it was a murder mystery, secret society type book, I was looking for more romance than I got.Laura's a pretty forgettable main character. 10 days after finishing, I really can't tell you much about her. I know she was in a convent but she didn't really fit in and I can tell you she frequently lost patience with her day, the Segreta, her love interest...all of them. She was just a vehicle to tell the story.The writing was good, but it never really caught my attention. I was never drawn into Cross My Heart, despite all the little plots weaving into the one story. None of the story lines really intrigued me the way I needed.I'm sure some people will love this book and the setting and everything about it, but this book wasn't for me for a variety of reasons, none of which I can really place on the book. I strongly recommend giving Cross My Heart a try or, at the very least, going to pet the cover in person because it's gorgeous.
