The Unraveling of Avery Snow by Christy Sloat is book 2 in The Past Lives Series and the sequel to The Many Lives of Avery Snow. I am lucky enough to "know" the wonderful author via Facebook and have watched as she has released a total of 3 books and one novella, so far. I was excited to read The Unraveling of Avery Snow so that I could discover what had become of Avery, Dallas, and Landon. As I began the book, I could see the growth in Christy's writing (not that it was ever bad, I could just see that she was only getting better from an already great starting point!)
The story begins pretty much where the last book ended. Avery and Dallas are happy together (mostly) and getting ready to celebrate the opening of Dallas's new restaurant. Landon seems to be on the search for his partner in this life (and is careful not to miss any possibilities, if you know what I mean). While she is committed to Dallas and is happy in her relationship, she is still drawn to Landon and can't help but be jealous of the many women he seems to be sleeping with.
As the story progresses so does Avery's unraveling. Dallas's job becomes more demanding and their relationship suffers because of it. Avery also becomes aware of a new Dark Guide who is out for vengeance which causes stress and unease for the story's heroine. But with all the stress and drama that unfolds, Avery grows closer to Landon and the same seems to hold true for Landon. Poor Avery! She's stuck again between hurting Dallas or hurting Landon, and all of it added up is only hurting her. She realizes that she needs to focus on her and what makes her happy for awhile before she becomes completely unraveled.
As the story reaches its arc, we (the reader and the characters themselves) discover the truth about some characters and how it effects the outcome. What will the Dark Guide do? Will Dallas and Avery stay together? Will Avery choose to be with Landon instead? Will our heroine even make it through the story alive? The answers are in the book of course, so you'll have to read it for yourself to find out. And I definitely recommend that you read it. It's a relatively quick read and one that the reader can immerse themselves in. Its romantic, its dramatic, its an all and all great story that ties up the series with a pretty little bow.
Now, that I've convinced you to read the book (It can be purchased from Amazon for $11.99), I'll let you in on a fun a surprise. Once you read it, you can leave a review on Amazon, then head over to this event on Facebook and leave the link to your review. Once the book has 30 reviews there will be a drawing to win a custom keychain, a signed paperback copy of Christy's book The Brown House, and an awesome jewelry set! What could be better than reading a great book and winning some fun prizes!!
