The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Bella Forrest – The Gender Secret

I was in two minds about the first book in this series, it had good moments and bad moments, but the shock ending left me wanting to read more.

Unfortunately, I’m a bit disappointed that I did. As expected Viggo and Violet are reunited again, but then we spend the whole book going back and forth between ‘I trust him’ and ‘wait, no I don’t’. And it started to get on my nerves just a little bit.

But once we’d got out of ‘the green’, I did find myself on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to happen next, even if sometimes it felt like it was going slower than I thought. I didn’t particularly like the inclusion of Viggo’s chapters where we see things from his point of view, I felt like they weren’t quite as well written as Violet’s chapters and he seemed like a different personality to the Viggo of the first book to be honest.

I did think the ending of the book kind of redeemed the faults from the rest of the story, so I will probably try the 3rd book in the series when I can get it for free on my kindle, but I won’t be in a particular rush to get to it really.
