My book reviews

Updrift by Errin Stevens



For Kate Sweeting, love isn’t in the air. It’s in the water.

Since her father died, Kate Sweeting’s home life has been in the pits, her well-being on life support. Her future looks desolate until she and her mother, Cara, make another plan: abandon their shriveled existence for more promising prospects on the coast, where Cara can play small-town librarian-bachelorette and Kate can figure out what’s up with that secretive Blake family from the beach.

Everyone is eerily captivated with Kate and her mother, and Cara is the first to figure out why when the man of her dreams arrives all dripping and devoted and closed-mouthed about what he intends. Kate is willing to go along with their subterfuge for a while, but eventually makes a charge for the water to learn what her mother is hiding. Gabe Blake is there waiting for her…and so is someone considerably less friendly. By the time Kate navigates her way home, everything will have changed for her—what she feels, what she wants, and what she’ll risk to be with the man she loves.

My Review…

This book is placed in 3rd person and i’m not a fan so at first, this book was hard to get into, the beginning being slow and nothing really exciting happening, except for the bond building between Kate and Gabe, then once I started to continue to read on, more events started happening that was catching my eye. And before I knew it, I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it. Gabe and Kate have been put through rough challengers but in the end, they pulled through. I always love books with Sirens ” Mermaids” in them.

Kate talking to her Roommate.

“I’m an unrecoverable bookworm. Really, I can’t be saved.”

Game telling Kate all about his ‘siren’ life.

Gabe grimaced. “Use the term ‘siren’, please,” he begged. “I always picture myself in drag when i hear ‘mermaid’, and I’m not very pretty.”

Kate talking with her mum Cara.

Cara stifled a laugh before composing herself. “No, you’re not. You’re pregnant, not fat. And you can help you and your family close the door on your experience at Shadow by doing this.”

The song that suits this book is “Skinny Love by Birdy.”

I rate this book 4 stars.
