Like other books I’ve read by Conley, I was thoroughly entertained by Power of Love. Certain consistencies with her writing style that I’ve grown fond of were all present in this book, only increasing my appreciation for her work.
One thing Conley always does is provide a clear story arc. Girl meets boy (or vice versa), sparks fly, and drama ensues. But it’s not annoying, unbelievable drama. It’s just your everyday drama that people deal with all the time when it comes to love and relationships. Her characters are normal, everyday people too. They have believable flaws and always remind me of people I know in real life. As with other Conley couples, I found myself really pulling for Vanessa and Linc.
Another consistency of Conley’s is that no matter how serious things get in her stories, there’s always a bit of humor. It might be the result of a quirky character or the banter between certain characters, but there’s always something that tickles my funny bone. In this story, I got such a kick out of the Book B!tches in the book club!
I mentioned believability earlier, so I should note that this particular series has a paranormal slant. Some may believe the spirit-related things that happen in this book are possible while others won’t. I personally don’t know what I believe when it comes to paranormal activity. At any rate, I found the spirit activity in this book to be intriguing, and I look forward to seeing what comes of it.
RATING: 4 STARS
