Avery Hood is reeling from the loss of her parents–and the fact that she can’t remember what happened to them even though she was there. She’s struggling to adjust to life without them, and to living with her grandmother, when she meets Ben, who isn’t like any guy she’s ever met before. It turns out there’s a reason why, and Ben’s secret may hold the key to Avery finding out what happened to her parents… But what if that secret changes everything she knows about–and feels for–Ben?
This Blonde’s Review:
In Low Red Moon we have Avery who probably witnessed her parents’ murder. She’s trying to adjust to living without them, living with her grandmother, and dealing with a cute new boy. Most importantly Avery is figuring out what happened to her parents and why she can’t remember. I assumed that this book would have many emotional wrenching scenes set to make the reader Feel what Avery must feel about losing her parents. Instead, it’s like it didn’t happen emotionally. She puts more emotion into dealing with Ben and her feeling and uncertainties for him than anything else. There is an interesting twist between Avery and Ben, which leads to the uncertainties Avery feels. I thought the twist was an good addition to the story.
I was drawn in to this story and really enjoyed it. I would Love to hear more about Avery and Ben. I enjoyed their story. I think you would too, but don’t expect this to be a story that will make you cry for all that Avery has lost. If you’re looking for a tear jerker, this isn’t it. But it’s still very good. I will be reading more from Ivy Devlin in the future.
