Review #294: Waiting for Dusk- Nancy Pennick

Title: Waiting for Dusk
Author: Nancy Pennick
Series: Waiting for Dusk #1
Pages: 227
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Summary: Read a book.
Fall asleep.
Meet a boy.
Is it real or just a dream?
Katie’s everyday life suddenly turns exciting when she travels back in time and meets the boy of her dreams. Thinking of nothing else, willing to leave the real world behind, she’s determined to find out if it’s all a dream or not. Returning again and again, Katie almost has her answers until one day her precious book goes missing.
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
When I started reading this book I wasn't feeling it. We were introduced to 8 characters in the first 3 pages and those characters all had about 3 nicknames. I found that annoying having to figure out who was who. After that fiasco I actually really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the concept and I liked when we finally start getting the truth about everything. I did find all of the romance entertaining despite the insta- love that occurred. I do wish that the author would have went a little darker with Ty's character, I think that would have made his villain persona pop. Katie was an okay character but I wish she would have ballsed up. She knew her relationship wasn't healthy but still fed the monster. 
The end left me wanting more of this story and mostly more of Andrew. I would like to see a second book. I would recommend this to time travel fans.

About this author

Born and raised in Northeast Ohio, Nancy currently resides in Mentor, Ohio with her husband and their college-age son, plus a delightfully entertaining lovebird. She secretly wrote short stories as a child, typed them up and put them in a drawer. She’d give anything to see those stories one more time. Her writing is influenced by all the years of working with young people as a teacher and raising her own son. When not writing, Nancy loves to travel with her husband and enjoys a good cup of tea.
