Review 'Illusion Town' by Jayne Castle


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29101781-illusion-town
A new adventure begins on Harmony . . .

Welcome to Illusion Town, a desert city filled with opulent casinos and hotels - and home to a thrilling ride you'll never forget.

Hannah West isn't the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All they can remember is that they were on the run . . .

With Hannah's dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The coolly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity - as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.

But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light-and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn . . .

My Review:


Last year I read my first Jayne Castle book and I really loved it. So when I received ‘Illusion Town’ I was super excited to start reading this book. ‘Illusion Town’ is the third book in the Harmony series I read.

In ‘Illusion Town’ we meet Hannah West and Elias Coppersmith. Hannah and Elias have been working with each other online for weeks. Now Elias finally convinced Hannah to go out to dinner with him. But dinner doesn’t go as planned.
The next morning Hannah and Elias both can’t remember how the night went. All they know is people are after them, and they are in danger.

Although I really enjoyed reading ‘Illusion Town’ I didn’t love it. I love reading these stories set in Harmony. I love reading about the ‘talents’ the characters have and I especially love reading about those dust bunnies. But I just didn’t really like Hannah and Elias together. I just couldn’t ‘feel’ their chemistry and attraction. So the moment in this book were they supposedly were feeling a lot of attraction to one another.. I just couldn’t really feel it. That was definitely a down part for me.

The other thing that bothered me a little was how fast the last few chapters went. It almost made me feel like the author wanted to end the book faster than planned at first. I definitely felt a little disappointed after reading those last view chapters.

But still, ‘Illusion Town’  was a fun read I really enjoyed. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
