Blog Tour Stop for Take Me Home by Daniela Sacerdoti

Today I am absolutely delighted to be part of the Blog Tour for Watch Over Me by Daniela Sacerdoti with a Review and Giveaway



Synopsis


Inary Monteith’s life is at a crossroads. After a stolen night with her close friend Alex, she’s just broken his heart by telling him it was all a terrible mistake. Then she has to rush home from London to the Scottish Highlands when her little sister’s illness suddenly worsens – and in returning she must confront the painful memories she has been trying so hard to escape.
Back home, things become more complicated than she could ever have imagined. There’s her sister’s illness, her hostile brother, a smug ex she never wants to see again and her conflicted feelings about Alex in London and a handsome American she meets in Glen Avich. On top of that, she mysteriously loses her voice but regains a strange gift from her childhood – a sixth sense that runs in her family. And when a voice from the past keeps repeating, ‘Take me home’, she discovers a mystery that she knows she must unlock to set herself free.
Take Me Home is a beautiful story of love, loss, discovering one’s true abilities and, above all, never forgetting who you really are.



Review

Take Me Home was a really enjoyable novel. It actually came as a pleasant surprise as it was not quite what I was expecting. Initially I found this a little hard to get into but then it took off and I couldn't put it down.

Once again I love love love novels that are written from different characters points of view and the author does this from the main characters Inary, Alex and Logan. Inary is instantly likeable and I really felt her pain emotionally and physically. And her relationship with Alex was practically tearing me apart! Especially as we get to read Alex's point of view and know their exact feelings for each other. It felt particularly hard to read this part of the story as it felt close to home and I desperately wanted Alex and Inary to be together. There was one quote though that I absolutely loved and it gave me a little hope: "What's for you won't go past you". I am going to keep repeating that mantra and I really hope it's true!

I loved the descriptions of Glen Avich and its small village and consequently small knit community. I have only ever been to Scotland once, but reading this has made me want to explore more.

There were times in this that literally gave me the chills. Daniela creates a fantastic atmosphere that really draws you in and has you craving more. There was also a fantastic sense of mystery surrounding every page. Every time I had to put the book down, I couldn't stop thinking about it and where the story would lead.

This is the first novel I have read from Daniela and it certainly won't be the last!

4.5/5
