Book Review: Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Title: Crescendo
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick
Series: Hush, Hush (Book#2)
Pages: 427
Publisher: Simon & Schuster BFYR
Year Published: 2010

"Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. he's more elusive than ever (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar.
Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him- despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.
If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything- and everyone- she trusts."

My Rating: 4.5/5

This is the second book in the Hush, Hush series and I was happy that Becca Fitzpatrick wasn't afraid to go in a faster paced writing style, getting to the point with suspense, but not so I was bored. I was surprised to find that the characters had evolved so much and I was able to connect with them on a deeper level. The setting also seems to develop as the reader sees different parts of town. The best part of this book was without a doubt the suspense and the feeling of being watched throughout. I would suggest this book for anyone who enjoys romance, but is interested in a good mystery as well.

Thanks for reading,
