A SINGLE STEP by Georgia Rose

4 out of 5 stars

Romantic Suspense, Mystery

Originally posted on Amazon UK HERE on 12 June 2014

A Single Step will appeal to readers who like a straight romance novel, and interest is added with an element of mystery to the story too; unanswered questions arise quite early on.

The novel is quite slow in parts but I think that, for the most part, the author got away with that; what struck me in the first chapter was that nothing much was happening, and there was a fair bit of minute detail, but it WASN'T BORING!! - which is the mark of a good storyteller, isn't it? The main character, Emma, has suffered a great tragedy, and I thought this was extremely well illustrated, quite heart-rending and very real. Quite outstanding, actually - shows real talent. You'll have to read it!

I didn't particularly warm to Emma and found her a little too dour, but that's just personal taste; perhaps the fact that I found her so means that she was well-written; this is no light romance!

I thought the story was well structured, and it will be interesting to see how Ms Rose's skill develops in the next part of the trilogy.
