Brittany’s Review

I’m not sure where to start with my review of Mistake’s Melody from the Unquiet Mind series.  I wasn’t even 30% into the book before I was blubbering through the tears and shooing everyone away from me because I was so deep into the characters.  One of the things I love most about Anne Malcom’s writing is that her characters are never shiny without imperfections.  If anything she has a knack for putting her characters flaws front and center and making us fall in love with them instead of revolt against them. 

In Mistake’s Melody when learn the story of Wyatt, the bass player for Unquiet Mind and Emma the best friend to Unquiet Mind’s lead singer Lexie.  The book starts out in a sort of flash back mode, but I love that the author doesn’t leave us in flashback for the majority of the book.  One thing I am personally not a fan of is when a book has flashback, but it’s either every other chapter or the first half of the book.  Sometimes a flashback can become unnecessary to the story and we end up with more information that we needed, thus leaving me bored and skipping pages.  This story does not do that at all.  Anne does a good job of giving us the information we need from the flashback and then moving on.  Once we are in “present day” of the book she dives into the now of who Wyatt and Emma are and I have to tell you that Emma is probably one of my favorite characters from all of Anne’s books.  She’s so emotionally flawed but strong and even though as a reader I wanted her to break through so she could be with Wyatt, I loved that she never let him get by with anything.  If he does something that screws with her, she holds him accountable.  It seems like it books, even when the heroine is strong, she constantly gives in or doesn’t hold strong to her feelings, but Emma never does that.  It’s not about holding a grudge, it’s more about not allowing him to just get away with screwing up.  Wyatt of course has his own set of issues that he is dealing with as well so between the two of them it seems like they just running into brick walls instead of breaking through them. 

If you haven’t read the book then you might want to stop here because this may be a spoiler issue for you.  When Wyatt and Emma finally come together there is a huge conflict that happens and then even bigger than that, Emma ends up pregnant.  Now, I am a total sucker for an unplanned baby in a romance.  I know that’s not everyone’s cup of tea and honestly I have read some books where it just felt like they were throwing a baby in the mix because they didn’t know what else to do but I loved this happening with Wyatt and Emma.  Again I am total sucker for this trope but with everything else that happened in the book it made sense to the storyline. 

I loved getting to read about the characters from the other Unquiet Mind books and how they all played into the relationship between Wyatt and Emma.
