Blog Tour- Character Relationships- Chantele Sedgwick
Todays stop on the Blog tour takes us to "There's always something to read" blog by Chantele Sedgwick.
Though suspense is not her favorite genre, I appreciate her taking the time to review the book and focus a little more on the relationships between the characters. Here are a few of my favorite quotes.
"All in all, a very clean read, full of suspense and even a little romance."
And..."The romantic tension between these two (Emily & Paul) was fun to read about. Especially with the introduction of Jimmy."
"I loved Jimmy and Paul's relationship. They were the best of friends, with a crush on the same girl. They both knew this fact, but didn't let it affect their friendship. Sure there was jealousy, but they both just let Emily decide between the two of them."
And finally..."Mr. Westover has written an awesome debut novel, and I expect great things from him in the future."
As a writer I don't expect everyone to love my writing or the story. Not everyone has the same interests or sensibilities, but it is rewarding to see how different readers take different messages from the book and have different experiences as they read. Defensive Tactics has a little bit of everything for the reader to hopefully engage them in some way, whether its the action and suspense, relationships or spiritual renewal.
