Still shocked over her mother’s mysterious death, California socialite Logan Keller is handed a one-way ticket to her long lost roots in Wyoming where love, deceit and danger await. Though she could forget everything staring into Luke Callahan’s eyes, Logan is quickly thrust into a fight for survival. Taking fate into her own hands, she begins unraveling the dangerous deceptions that abound at every turn. Her father is keeping secrets and Luke is keeping more. But Logan is keeping the biggest secret of them all.
The Violet Hour is a page-turning captivating twist of young romance and the paranormal.
The main character, Logan, really interested me. I was glad to see a really strong female without much wishywashyness (is that a word?) to her. She really held everything together, and really reflects well to the reader. Her development throughout the book was well done, and very interesting. I related to it. The character struggles to understand some of the twists and turns thrown at her, but she doesn’t do the typical YA girl move and pout about it. She could, because she’s leaving her sunny home and going somewhere she never planned, but she’s strong and that’s what I loved most about her. She does face major challenges, changes, and some crazy far out stuff, but she takes it in stride and really becomes a beloved character.
Luke is also great. He’s a great romantic lead, and the mystery surrounding him was very well done. He’s interesting, and more close to your typical hero in a story, but this story is so much more dynamic with Luke and his brothers and everything that goes on that you don’t even mind his broody moments because you’re just captivated by the story. He’s got an interesting backstory, and I’m looking forward to more of Luke and Logan in the next book.
I don’t spoil but there are a few twists and turns I didn’t see coming! You are so drawn in, and you really want the answers to some questions that you get left with. I’m glad there’s no major cliffhanger, but I’m still really excited to see what happens to Logan next. Great read! It exceeds the YA genre to appeal to anyone of any age who enjoys a good paranormal romance that’s completely acceptable to be read by a 13 year old as it is to be read by a 25 year old. It’s a great read that will grab you from the beginning and pull you through until the end! Very excited for the next book!
