Book Review – Emerald Green

Emerald Green book coverEmerald Green by Lindsay Marie Miller

Addie Smith dreamt of a mysterious, handsome boy and then suddenly, he showed up at her school. She immediately feels drawn to Tom Sutton, but he is part of a dark past that is threatening to come to light. Ms. Miller is a promising author. Her descriptions are very well written, but it’s her characters that need work. Both Addie and Tom feel flat throughout the course of the story. Sure, they grow closer and you discover things about them that are necessary for the plot but I never felt wholly connected to them. Also, the story never feels completely fleshed out. Maybe that’s because this is the beginning of a series (and slight spoiler, ends in a cliffhanger) but I was left wanting to know more about the mystery at the center of the plot. Overall, I would call Emerald Green worth the time but also not as great as it could have been.

*Disclosure: I was provided a free copy of this novel with a request for an honest review.*
