I’d seen this book mentioned on Twitter several times, and I thought it sounded interesting, so I borrowed the audiobook from Hoopla.

I found The Substitute on Amazon for free, so I picked it up a few months ago. I hadn’t read anything in nearly a month, and the description promised plenty of misunderstandings and a bit of romance–possibly the perfect thing to get me out of my funk.

I borrowed Until It Fades from my library’s Overdrive. It’s not often I see a book on there and think I just *have* to read it as soon as possible, but the description got me on this one! Right up my alley.

This is the first book in a series. Last year I reviewed the second book, Where Two Hearts Meet (review), as part of a Lone Star Book Blog Tour. I was so excited to find the series on Hoopla and be able to read the first installment.

This is the second Laura Elliston novel, and continues to follow “Laura” and Kindle. I received a NetGalley copy, just like I did for Sawbones (review).
Western / Historical Fiction
Outlander meets post-Civil War unrest in this action-packed follow up to Sawbones.
Laura Elliston and William Kindle are on the run — from the Army and from every miscreant in the West eager to claim the $500 bounty for Laura’s capture as their own. But the danger isn’t just from those pursuing them. Laura and Kindle have demons of their own and a past that won’t stay dead. Exhausted, scared, scarred and surrounded by enemies, neither realize the greatest danger is yet to come.
* I received a free NetGalley copy in exchange for an honest review.
I think my biggest impression of this book is that it is exhausting. Laura and William are almost constantly running, and I felt like there wasn’t an actual story with a beginning, middle, and end. It was all middle. At the end of the book, their situation seemed no more resolved than the beginning.
I will say that I believe Laura’s character did a bit of growing, a little healing, at least. But I still had a hard time connecting to her character.
2 of 5 stars, I’m not sure I’ll be reading the next installment anytime soon.
