review 1: This was a fun and refreshing book that combined elements of spirituality, humor and mystery. Many of the spiritual concepts were new to me and I found myself never bored while reading Dead End Date.I loved the main character Faith. The author made her seem very real and I loved Faith’s sense of humor. She didn’t take herself so seriously and it made her appealing. The setup was also great: Faith is given a year to start bringing more love to Earth and fulfill her duties as a Lightworker. During this journey, she becomes embroiled in a mystery when her blind date never shows up for their night out because he’s murdered.One of the complaints I would have is the cover wasn’t very appealing to me. It seemed a little amateurish and it wouldn’t make me buy the book. A... morelso, I felt like a few of the parts came off as little hokey like how much is devoted to eating organic and Feng Shui. However, I was highly entertained by a lot of Faith’s inner monologue and her man troubles as well as trying to figure out what happened to Faith’s dead date Dick. All in all, Dead End Date is a very good book with memorable characters and a very unique storyline. This is part of the series and will certainly attract readers looking for something new that delves into spiritual concepts.Rating: 4/5 StarsI was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
review 2: For being about a difficult subject, a murder, this really was a "light" book. The mood wasn't too heavy and it had some parts that really made me laugh. There were a few tense scenes, but it didn't ruin the mood that I got from this one.I really liked Faith. She was such a great character because she was real. I could see myself having her thoughts, her ideas (well some of her ideas... LOL). She was just a normal person. I think the problem with characters who have the kind of abilities that Faith has is that they come across as being wacky or kooky.... And I've known a few people like Faith, and none of them are kooky (wacky sometimes yes...). So this was a very real representation. I liked that a lot. The writing was very good. Like I said earlier it had a very light feeling to the book. There was humor, but it wasn't poking fun at anything. I was able to connect with the main characters. This made it very easy for me to get drawn into the story. I wanted what they wanted, and could understand what they were going through. The book really focuses on Faith's spiritual journey. She's a lightworker, which means she needs to connect to her spiritual side before it's too late for her. Her finding of herself goes through some ups and downs, but really it's her ability to connect to people in special ways that makes the story what it is. Since this is the start of a series I'm really looking forward to what Faith gets herself into next. less
