Review: Nora Grey is still dating her guardian angel, Patch Cipriano. She is having the best time ever until Patch starts drawing away and isn't telling Nora anything, which isn't too unusual. With Patch ignoring Nora and with him spending time with Marcie Millar, Nora decides to start hanging out with a childhood friend, Scott Parnell, who is hiding more secrets than Nora can even count. So when some light about her Dad's murder comes to Nora's attention she is more confused than ever and has no idea who to trust.
I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED CRESCENDO!!!!!!! Um....ya I think you can tell that I though it was amazing so I won't say that! Sorry if all those Capital letters bothered you but I had to get my point across somehow, didn't I?
Nora was at her best in this book but she was a little annoying when it came to Patch. Did she love him? Yes. Did she do a good job of acting like she hated him? YES! Why? To protect him. That doesn't exactly mean that you can go around being all lovey dovey one second and then I hate you get out of my life the next. Despite all of this I still loved Nora, even though she got herself into quite a few dangerous situations and could have died. A LOT. If my good old Patch hadn't come to the rescue! Nora needs to stop doubting Patch and trust him! Did he ever do anything to harm her? um...not really. So why doesn't she trust him now!? Who knows! I think I can stop talking about Nora now. I still loved her though. Despite... Katie! Um no more.
The plot, just like Hush, Hush had me guessing till the very end and I was pretty surprised when I found out who murdered Nora's Father. I was kept entertained through the whole book and I speed through this book.
I think I have finally figured out why the titles are what they are! Hush, Hush means like everything is quiet and nothing big has happened yet. Crescendo means things get louder and louder and more dangerous. So I think each of these things relate to the books. Nora was in a danger in Hush, Hush and she got into even more drama/danger in this book! And the 3rd one is Tempest so I think we can all figure that out!
I also put together the books on my bookcase and I realized that Hush, Hush has a grey spine and Crescendo has a Grey and a black spine like everything is getting darker and more dangerous. Not sure what it means or if it is just a coincidence but I think The Tempest will have an all black spine.
Loved it! When I finished this book I screamed out "How I am supposed to wait for the next one?" and got a few odd looks. Not my greatest moment! But you still should read this!
Comes out "officially" today!
