    Elley is a talented author and has great style I enjoy the dual character perspectives and voices I really enjoyed her debut, SAVE MY SOUL That said, Justin and Alice weren t characters I felt warm and fuzzy towards individually Alice begins the book madly in love with himbut why He s a puppet to the political world and his father s aspirations for him She grew up with him, and I think the love is based on the boy man he was pre Congressman Why she loves him now is anyone s guess As f Elley is a talented author and has great style I enjoy the dual character perspectives and voices I really enjoyed her debut, SAVE MY SOUL That said, Justin and Alice weren t characters I felt warm and fuzzy towards individually Alice begins the book madly in love with himbut why He s a puppet to the political world and his father s aspirations for him She grew up with him, and I think the love is based on the boy man he was pre Congressman Why she loves him now is anyone s guess As for Alice, this chick is a hot mess She s got insecurities like whoa I suppose that s what makes her very real Justin sees her as a much stronger and capable woman than she ll, possibly ever, see herself.Here s where the dual voices make an impression If I only saw either character from their own eyes, I may have given this a lower rating The fact that I got to view them through the other gave me pause While neither would be MY ideal, I think faults and all make them quite perfectly dysfunctional for each other I ll be curious to see what characters in Harmony Falls will star in future stories I ll definitely be checking back for
