The Jessica Sweet paranormal/mystery/romance novels portray Malcolm as a dark, mysterious creature who keeps his secrets closely concealed. ‘Bittersweet’ shows much more of who he is – sensitive and loving, yet carrying a burden that nobody else can understand.
This is a powerful and moving story, even for readers who are not familiar with DalRae’s Jessica Sweet novels. It works equally well as a standalone story, a companion backstory to the novels, or a very effective appetizer as an introduction to the novels.
DalRae’s writing is highly expressive and yet still so comfortable that the reader is drawn right into the world of Fallen Cross.
This book can be easily read in an hour, so ‘Bittersweet’ would be a perfect lazy afternoon or end of day read.
