5 Stars from LASR
Judah Raine’s The Look is deceptively appealing. It engages your mind and interest from the start – not with a bang, but with a curiosity that matches the main character’s curiosity.
South Africa forms the backdrop for this novel; not as a foreign destination, but beautifully and comfortably described as a ‘home’ country for Morgan. Descriptions are given in light touches – panoramic views that at once give a sense of place, but never slow the action. There are heartwarming moments, just enough to give a better sense of our characters – then on to the next discovery. City girl Morgan doesn’t quite fit her surroundings (a fact Blake sees at once). Her mission keeps her there, and her mission keeps us turning the pages, anxiously, right from the start. No giveaways here… you’ll have to read the book!
Unpredictable and engaging from the start, The Look is a page turner.
