The Girl with a Clock for a Heart by Peter Swanson ~ Fiction #Book Review

17841565Peter Swanson’s book, The Kind Worth Killing, blew me away. I loved the time I spent in those pages, wondering, guessing, holding my breath. So even though the cover blurb on his first book, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart, didn’t pique my interest, when I found it, I gave it a chance.

I opened the cover suspecting that this wouldn’t be my cup of tea, and it wasn’t. The writing was good, the plot intricate, but there was something almost juvenile about it. It lacked the depth, experience and craft that you’ll find in The Kind Worth Killing. I found parts of this one weren’t just far fetched, but downright annoying. In an eye roll, “yeah, right,” kind of way.

That said, I’m sure that there are readers that will really enjoy this book. It will keep you guessing. Not for me, but may be for you. Four stars.
