Book Review Of “Only Ever Her” By Marybeth Mayhew Whalen @TLCBookTours @AmazonPub

It was to be the perfect wedding—until the bride disappeared.
Annie Taft’s wedding is four days away, and it will be one of the grandest anyone can remember in her small South Carolina town. Preparations are in order. Friends and family are gathering in anticipation. Everything is going according to plan. Except that Annie herself has vanished. Did she have second thoughts?
Or has something much worse happened to the bride-to-be?
As the days pass, the list of suspects in her disappearance grows. Could it be the recently released man a young Annie misidentified as her mother’s killer? Could it be someone even closer to her?
While her loved ones frantically try to track her down, they’re forced to grapple with their own secrets—secrets with the power to reframe entire relationships, leaving each to wonder how well they really knew Annie and how well they know themselves.

Thank you TLC Book Tours and Amazon Publishing for having me on the Book Tour for ONLY EVER HER. All opinions are my own.

I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.

The Good- It was an addicting read, it was fast, compulsive, and it really kept the reader on their toes. You spend the whole time wondering where she went. You read from several P.O.V.’s and get insight into Annie, and some very sad back story.

The Bad- I didn’t like that none of the P.O.V.’s were Annie’s. She was the one I wanted to hear from the most. There was too many backstories for the other characters, and some I felt could have been left out entirely. I felt like, this book could have had an amazing, twisty, dark ending, but it was like the Author just gave up, and wrote a very basic ending. I guess I just feel like this book was disjointed, and it didn’t really come together for me, as I’d had hoped.

Also, keep in mind, this is my own opinion, and it should not deter you away from reading it. I loved WHEN WE WERE WORTHY, that was one of my favorite books that I read the year it came out. And I think MBMW has great writing skills. This book just didn’t match up for me. And that’s okay, because we cannot love and read only 5 Star books.
