Review: Windows by Emily Minton

Lucas Beck crawled through Melinda James’ window every night. Each time, gaining a piece of her heart and leaving a bit of his behind.

Lucas was in love with the girl next door, but he ruined any chance he had of making her his. So, he moved on without her.

Lindy gave her heart to the boy next door, but he left her humiliated and heartbroken. So, she started a new life without him.

They both head off to college, leaving the other behind. Lucas finds success then misery on the Football field. Lindy finds new love, but it never feels quite right.

Years later, Lucas and Lindy find themselves back in their hometown. Will Lindy open her window again and give Lucas another chance?

My Thoughts: 
I love stories about friends becoming more and second chances. This one just missed the mark for me. I wanted to like this book more. There were parts that I liked. The beginning of each chapter had snippets from Lindy and Lucas's childhood that were sweet. And some of the secondary characters were fun. I just really did not like Lucas. He's supposed to be the reformed bad boy, but he just came across as a jerk. And I thought Lindy forgave him way too easily. The mystery was also fairly predictable. If you don't mind those things, you might like this book. And from the epilogue it looks like Lindy's friend Tara will be getting her own book.

My Rating: ***
