I recently finished reading A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White.
I really enjoyed this book. Willa is a fun, no-nonsense character, and I loved her dynamic with Lukas. She always made sure to call him out on his absurdly flirtatious nature in a way that never failed to make me smile. He was very much the epitome of tall, dark and handsome and could have easily become a romantic cliche, but I enjoyed his teasing nature. One of my favorite lines was when Willa remarked that being that handsome and charming should be criminal. Willa was a great voice of reason, and a refreshing change of pace for the genre. Needless to say, these two were the shining stars of the story.
The plot moved along quite nicely, and (thankfully) did not leave me with moments of skim reading. I loved Margot’s character, and I really enjoyed getting to know some of the side characters from the previous book in the series–especially Barclay. I felt that the story twisted and turned in ways I wasn’t expecting. It was a pleasant surprise to read a story and not make correct guesses on where the narrative would turn.
With all that being said, there were some moments that seemed very similar to the previous book in the series. This is not necessarily a bad thing, but it did take me out of the story a bit, but only for a moment. Like having deja vu, in a way. Despite this, the story was still well-executed and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it for anyone fond of intriguing mystery and fun characters. The characters, for sure, were what stood out to me in this story.
I received this book from the author and publisher, but I was in no way required to leave a positive review. All opinions are my own.
