Review #287: For Better or Worse- Ingrid Nickelsen

Title: For Better or Worse
Author: Ingrid Nickelsen
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Summary: When one story ends, another begins.
Evangeline lived a long fulfilling life. Loving mother and wife, she had everything she could wish for…until a tragic car accident took it all away from her.
Awakening in a new world with the body of a young woman, Evangeline doesn’t remember anything about her life, not even her own name. Luckily she has godparents to help guide her in this new society of the dead. As she struggles to fit in, deep inside, she can sense something is missing, a part of her that she can’t recall. When a mysterious man claims he can help get her memory back if she agrees to keep their nocturnal meetings a secret, she can’t refuse. Everything about him screams trouble, but she can’t seem to stay away. Every moment spent with him makes her feel alive again.
Is she really prepared to unveil her past completely, from beginning to end? Everything is not as it seems in her new found home, and her new life may also end in tragedy.
Rest in fear, Evangeline.
Review: I received the book free rom the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book was not what I was expecting lol, which happens a lot when you don't actually read the synopsis. For Better or Worse was beautifully written, Nickelsen has an amazing ability with details. My concern was some parts were jumpy and not well explained, leaving me fairly confused at what was happening. Also sometimes I was wondering why things were happening or why characters did certain things.
I liked the characters, I couldn't fully connect with them but they were interesting. This was a good read and I know others will love it, but I just couldn't commit 100% to the story. I will look forward to reading other works by this author because she is gifted with details.

About this author

Ingrid is a French girl, college student, and dreamer. She currently resides in Paris, where she spends most of her time going to museums and the movies.
Despite the romantic atmosphere in Montmartre, or even the fancy cafés in the Champs Elysées, she would easily trade it all for a nice walk in the woods with her schnauzer, Golden. She's always craving adventures, and finds that books are the cheapest way to travel to far-away lands. She's inwardly convinced that words have the power to heal the worst blisters on our hearts, or at least can make us forget about them for a little while. And sometimes, it's just enough to face another crazy day.
