No Turning Back was great–fabulous, actually. I couldn’t put it down.
Until I had to. The author is a phenomenal writer, and I hope to try something else of hers again in the future. It’s a personal issue that I just can’t handle. So I closed the book and chose to withdraw from the tour. I’m very sorry for that. I’d love to know how it turns out, but I can’t read it.
For those who love realistic fiction that, while authentic-feeling, is relatively clean, give this book a shot. For those who have problems with assault scenes involving women… beware. I’m not sorry I requested a free review copy of this book, and I’m thankful the author provided it. I wish I could have finished the whole thing.
That’s what I wrote the day I was supposed to leave a review but…
When You Can’t Finish a Great Book
You let the tour company know. They let the author know, and authors like Katie Vorreiter send you a nice email assuring you that they understand.
And guess what? She showed me where I could skip and keep reading.
So glad I did. Katie Vorreiter has written a fabulous book in No Turning Back–great suspense, excellent characterization, and an ending that one doesn’t see every day.
Recommended for those who love strong, intense suspense with a bit of a thriller vibe. However, if the threat of rape is a problem for you, be aware it exists. You aren’t dragged into it, but you know it’s been a thing before and might be again.
