Review: Hush, Hush

Hush, Hush Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Received an EMail from BookBub that this was available for a rather low price, checking the different retailers, I saw an Omnibus Edition of all 4 books, but that when checking that price against all 4 books, these where even way cheaper (saved more than 7 Eur).
The Omnibus has 46 pages more, but there is no mention of additional material, so that may also be excerpts / teasers for other books.

While the beginning is interesting, it takes rather long with the bad-boy drama to get on, reads so far more like a murder-mystery with a suicide-or-possible-murder thrown in, but even with an attack, an accident and a break-in, not enough suspense for me, drags currently.

Not sure wether I will recommend this one, currently, as it picks up the pace a little at 50-60%, 3.5 stars, for the first one in the series rounded up to 4 stars. Will look in the next book when I feel like it. As I have just read the first part of The Fallen and Leviathan and it is not so long ago I finished with a DNF/FastForward Fallen I can say this has not enough suspense and the mixed feelings of the MC are not too believable. Also I guessed the little twists of the persons who turned out to be bad early on (nearly when they where introduced, they where way too obvious). Can accept that, but the story would have played out differently if the MC had not kept a few things to herself but talked with her BFF or her Mother about them.
Some review said that the second book was a little boring, and one should keep on, that alone makes want to abandon the series, as this book barely held my interest. With some authors the series get better with every book, so I will peek into the next book and then decide, but not soon, I need something different with more meat in between.
