Sometimes I choose books to read based on the descriptive blurb the author writes for the book cover. That’s exactly what happened with Wavering Convictions by Erin Dutton. I read the blurb and chose the book immediately. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book about two characters attracted to each other only to find out that one woman is the sister of the man who robbed the other woman at gunpoint.
The possibilities for angst and relationship problems should be almost endless for this story, and the author did use that to a certain degree. The story is well written. I really liked Ally. She is well-developed and has a depth to her that feels real. I did not like Maggie quite as much, probably because she refuses to get any help even though it’s obvious that she’s suffering from PTSD from the robbery. I’m not sure why that bothered me so much, but it did. The two women have great chemistry together. The romance is sweet and I did enjoy that part of the tale. I’m just not sure the author took advantage of all the story options she had with this book.
This is my first book by Erin Dutton, and I will be looking for more books to read by her.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
