Book Review: Crescendo, by Becca Fitzpatrick

Becca Fitzpatrick

Rating: 4

The 2nd installment in the Hush, Hush series, we find Nora and Patch taking his new angel status in stride. But things don't stay rosy for long. In fact, it doesn't take long until things head south, way down south, so far south it tears Nora and Patch apart. But Rixon and Vee are there for Nora, big-time. And someone from Nora's past knocks on her door.

The book starts on a happy note, but doesn't stay that way for long. Patch is unchanging, it seems. But Nora, hmmm, I don't know what to say. She seemed clingy, over-dramatic, and quick to jealous fits. She's everything that I don't like in women. There were times when I was like, "Patch! Dump her! She's baggage!"

The plot was good, but it was over-shadowed by my increasing annoyance with Nora. Unfortunately, if it weren't for Nora, I'd give this book 5 stars, but instead it drops to a 4. Otherwise very, very good book; great plot, great writing and, other than Nora, great characters.
