Seven Weeks to Forever by Jennifer Farwell Review

Title: Seven Weeks to Forever
Author: Jennifer Farwell
Age Group: Teen/Young Adult
Genre: Romance
Series: N/A
Star Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
The bottom line: Despite a novel idea for the afterlife and a sweet romance, this book just didn't hold my attention--I couldn't relate to the main character, nor did I really like her. I really tried, but this book just wasn't for me.

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Cassidy Jordan is going to die soon. And hey, she's happy about it, even, because she knows the truth: The Life-After is waiting for her. But there's a catch first: find Riley Davis and be his friend, perhaps maybe even more than that. But she discovers she's in for more: Her ex-best friend, Selena, is sniffing around, and wonder of wonders, she's falling in love. Running from the ghosts and demons of her past, Cassidy discovers that love may just be possible again, if she can open her heart to it..

What I enjoyed:
-I liked the romance in this novel, sweet and chaste one moment and then heated the next
-The ending

What could've been better:
-I couldn't really relate to Cassidy, in fact, I didn't even like her, she just didn't have any depth and it was hard to sympathize with her
-I didn't really understand everything with the Life-After, even after it was thoroughly explained--it was confusing
-The prose, though beautiful, was slow, and I had a hard time getting through the book

Despite a novel idea and a believable romance, this book just didn't work for me. Next on deck: The Queen's Rivals: A Novel of the Grey Sisters by Brandy Purdy!
