Review: Washed Away by RC Boldt
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Give Me Books Promotions.
RC Boldt is one of my favorite go-to authors, and for good reason. I've read every single one of her books, and when she stepped away from her lighthearted romantic comedies and concentrated her writing efforts on darker, more romantic suspense fare, that quality of writing never waned. Her newest standalone, Washed Away, was an anticipated read, as is the case with all her upcoming releases. So yes, my expectations were high. This was the story of a woman who washes up on the shores of Panama, with her memory gone. She's tended to by Dr. Liam King, and try as he might, he can't help but fall for her with each day that passes. But as bits and pieces of her memory return, can the woman who now recalls being called Alexandra even pursue a life with this man or will learning who she is and her true nature lead to wishing Alex had never remembered?
There's no denying that RC Boldt is a gifted writer. I love reading her books, and I can guarantee that whatever else she's going to publishing after this one will end up on my to-be-read list. But as is often the case, there comes a time when a book doesn't click the way you want or expect to. That's what happened with Washed Away. The first half felt like it was meandering along, and it took forever for me to feel connected to the main characters, especially Alex. The second half was worlds away, with the pace of the story finally finding its stride and a whole lot more progress and development between Alex and Liam. Boldt's writing was good, but I was looking for the "more" that I've come to expect in all her books. 3.5 stars.
