The Vow

12 Dec

The Vow (An Uncertain Choice, #0.5)The Vow by Jody Hedlund
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I love Jody Hedlund’s stories, and so I picked up this novella knowing it would be a prequel to her novel, “An Uncertain Choice.” These short novellas are popular to entice readers to purchase the longer books. It’s a good marketing strategy plus it gives the reader a perk by adding depth to the full-length novel.

However, this one falls short. I haven’t read “An Uncertain Choice” yet but I have a feeling that “The Vow” will be a more meaningful story after reading the full-length novel than before. In “The Vow,” we aren’t really given time to develop an affinity for the hero and heroine. It’s all rather rushed and a jumble of conflicting emotions without the time to digest what is going on. I never connected with the characters, so their plight didn’t really resonate.
