Review: Love Line by Penny Drop

Book Rate: ★★★☆☆ (3/5)


The last seven lines of Love Line were exactly what I needed to read.

Penny Drop wrote an enjoyable short story about a romance born on a daily train transfer to work. You get to know the main character as best as you can in a short story and find her quite relatable to. I personally found some of Catherine’s interactions with her friends pretty amusing too.

But then you read the synopsys (in the end of this post) and you’re waiting for the “suspense” bit… An you wait and you wait and then you think it’s coming and then you think it won’t not afterall. There’s only a few lines left to finish the book and you’re already thinking this has zero suspense, this is just the normal cutsie love story. AND THEN, in the last seven lines, BAM! You get the ending you wanted (or at least I needed) to nicely wrap up the storyline.

I do whish we had seen a tiny bit deeper into the romance development and there had been more suspense clues through the story for the reader to pick up on because that would’ve made Love Line‘s reading experience that much better. But that aside it was still a enjoyable read.

I recommend Love Line if you’re looking for a quick and amusing read!

      Hey there! I just keep adjusting it to what I think is important in a review. Right now I believe the main things are book’s overall rating and the review itself, so I write those first. Then I insert the “details” such as the synopsis, publisher, page count, etc so my readers don’t have to open goodreads and search for the book in order to get this info. Very recently I also added a detailed rating to my posts that includes an evaluation of the plot, writing, characters, etc. Hope that helps and good luck with your review! 🙂
