Review: In Plain Sight by Amy Sparling


This is going to be a short review because the book was short and also because there’s not much to say.

This was definitely a cheesy, trope filled, a little unrealistic, no strings attached, cute read. The plot was a little lackluster and a little unpredictable. There were few descriptions and depth to the story. The synopsis is basically everything that happens. You can read that and know everything that you need to know about the book. You can probably guess how the ending will turn out.

It was less than 200 pages, so there was only so much that could be done. The pacing was very fast. The book covered at least nine days. This caused relationship development to be completely nonexistent. The romance was very instalove.  

The characters were likeable, however they were a little two dimensional. I thought that Maddie was a good main character. I appreciated her relationship with her sisters and her mom. And I liked Colby. He was the definition of the perfect boy.

Colby and Maddie were cute, however, I would have much rather the book be spent on them developing their relationship and actually getting to know one another.

The main conflict could have been completely avoided if Colby and Maddie had communicated with each other. The conflict felt very over dramatic and bigger than what it really was.

In this book you really had to go with the flow, because again it lacked substance and descriptions. I truly believe that this book was not written to be ground breaking. It was written to be a cute teenage love story. It was a little too cheesy for my taste, but it did what it set out to do.

I appreciate the book for what it was. There was not angst, the characters were likeable, and it was a fast read. It was not too difficult to understand, and it had a happy ending. If you are looking for a quick love story this book is for you.
