Book Review: Engaging Kennewick by Sarah J. Carr ( a JackRabbit7 prequel)

When I read the first prequel (pRevealing Hamilton), I was fascinated by Molly’s story. After reading the novel Revealing Hamilton, I knew I wanted to get their story. Engaging Kennewick gives us a little about Molly and Dane’s story, and it is GOOD!!!

I got caught by Sarah’s story in pRevealing Hamilton, and I know that when I sit down with one of Sarah’s books, I’m unable to close the book until I’ve read the last page. Engaging Kennewick isn’t any different from the other books – I was hooked from beginning to end, and left with more questions than answers. I really need to read Embracing Hamilton. *eyes kindle on the table* I just have to finish some things first…. I hate to rush with my reading.

Anyways, back to topic. Engaging Kennewick is a short and quick read, filled with old hurt, fear, panic, action and of course love. I loved being able to get to know Molly and Dane a little better. We also get to see Nick from a very different side than we usually know him. Which was quite the eye opener for me, and actually explains a lot regarding his behavior later in life.

So… If you’re new to the JackRabbit7 series – please start with the prequel pRevealing Hamilton. If you want to read this one afterwards, or the novel Revealing Hamilton – your choice. But do NOT miss out on this series, I’m telling you; it will make you laugh, cry, and give you goosebumps. I’m not even going to warn you about the nightmares. You can’t avoid them! As a reader, I'm in awe over Sarah's writing style, the easy way she tags and bags you - without realizing it, you're hooked deep into this series, and can't put it down. Now proceed on your own peril! :-P
