bookshelves: angst, contemp-romance, read-in-2012

Ever since I read Jacob Have I Loved in middle school, I have loved books of sisterly competition and betrayal (probably because I only have brothers). That was the hook that excited me about Rainshadow Road; however, Kleypas's ever-growing tendancy to narrate in therapy-speak sucked all the drama and angst out of that plotline. The hero was bland to the point of invisibility. A final note- the supernatural elements were awkward and nonsensical. It rather reminds me of Nora Roberts's 'Born In' trilogy where the first two books were delightful (Born in Fire is a great and non-hokey description of artistic inspiration that Kleypas should have taken note of) and the third completely bombed thanks to the bizarre faux-mystical elements. Alas.
