Review of ‘In the direction of the sun’ by Lucy J. Madison

I read ‘Personal foul’ by this author and gave it a 3 star rating due to some editing problems and I have similar issues with this one. To start with, the plot resembles to the melodrama of a TV soap opera. I don’t mind a bit of angst and tension in a romance but this book takes things to an extreme that is hard to believe. I couldn’t connect with the main characters, their chemistry seemed a bit forced and some of their actions felt childish to me. The writing was sometimes too repetitive, the descriptions full of clich├ęs, the pace at some places either too slow or too fast. I think this book might have benefited from a better editing work.
Unfortunately I didn’t enjoy this reading at all. 2 stars.
