Crescendo (Hush, Hush) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Becca Fitzpatrick’s Crescendo, the follow up to last years breakout hit Hush, Hush, hits a high note. The story starts with Nora and Patch’s relationship in that wonderfully beautiful bliss that is first love. But secrets and jealously put everything in jeopardy. Soon Nora and Patch’s relationship along with his guardianship hits splitsville. And it couldn’t have come at a worst time, because someone is trying to kill Nora.
Nora’s rivalry with the local mean girl Marcie heats up as she goes after Patch. Rixon and Vee are dating, which leaves Nora feeling lonelier than ever. It doesn’t help that she’s being haunted and seems to see or hear her dead father at every turn. An old and very hot acquaintance Scott is back in town testing Patch’s hold over Nora’s heart, and it doesn’t help that he just happens to be Nephilim. But there’s something not right about him and Nora wants to find out what’s so shady about his past. Everyone seems to have a secret. Nora’s determined to find the answers. Her inner Nancy Drew emerges, as she manages to break in and search just about everyone’s home. Meanwhile the truths about Nora’s father and his murder are revealed.
Crescendo is filled with heartache and angst, secrets, lies, and loads of betrayals. Nora’s life is turning out to be more soap opera than sitcom, which will leave you longing for the next installment. Pick it up and you won’t want to put it down.
