Engaging Debut Novel
Dee Kelly's debut novel, Breaking Kate, is engaging! The book is well plotted with an unexpected twist. Her characters are likable and relatable.
Yea, team Daniel for sure...for now.
With the limited info I have at the end of this first book, I'm all team Daniel. Now, the next few books could change my decision given D Kelly's skillful writing and the way she has painted the long-term intense love of Michael and Katherine. But the way he treated her may trump everything. Let's see where this goes. On to book 1.5 from Michael's perspective, Book 2 where it looks like Kate messed up, and finally book 3 where we find out who's giving her a HEA.
I was so engaged by this novel. It is definitely a page turner. I just downloaded book 3! Can't wait to finish the series. Hopefully, she starts a new series soon.
