Series: Something Great #2
Rating: 4/5 Stars

As Matthew’s feelings for Becky grow, he’s torn between guilt and heartache over his deceased fiancée. Can Becky break through his wall and help him heal?
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I really loved book one in this series, so I was happy to continue on with this instalment. Something Wonderful is set up a bit differently than the first because it it told from four points of view, for me both ways worked. I'm happy that we got to see into Max and Jenna's minds as well as Matthew and Becca's. It allowed me to connect to the characters and and to the story in a more depth way. I did find the ending twist a bit predictable because I feel like the author kept hinting at it prior, so when it happened it wasn't too surprising. 
Overall, this was a great sequel and I am excited to continue the series. I would recommend this again to those who love a great NA contemporary read.

M. Clarke aka Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children’s chapter book-No Bullies Allowed
