#InspiredKathy Book Review - Secrets of the Red Box by Vickie Hall

Secrets of the Red BoxSecrets of the Red Box by Vickie Hall
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is tagged as historical fiction but I must say it didn't feel like it. The writing style seemed fresh and you were able to connect with each of it's characters in a comfortable manner.

I did think Bonnie came across as selfish and (very) shallow. But as the story progresses, you'll realise it was necessary to paint her in this light because only then will the ending knock the wind out of you.

*cheeky grin* Yes, this is one of those books that will have you thinking, now why didn't I see that coming?

Love seemed to be the central theme of the book with World War 2 used as a background and a 'tool' to add more colour to each character. All in, I loved the flow and the build-up Vickie gave each character.

Would I recommend this read? Oh yes, definitely.

Overall assessment:
Content: 4.5/5
Editing: 4.5/5
Formatting: 4.5/5
Pacing: 4.5/5
Offensive content?: Somewhere between PG and PG13

Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author through Inspired Kathy Book Tours. I did not receive any payment in exchange for this review nor was I obliged to write a positive one.
