A Hope Divided Reading Blog (Initial read)

Reading this for my book club as part of Spring Of Spies! 👏🏽 The club moderators planned for and selected books around spies in HR. This is my 2nd book of the season! My 1st read was Between The Devil And The Duke (please see my book review and reading blog!) Since I just read through audiobooks… werent able to find the 1st 2 books 📚… There are 7 titles for spring! 👏🏽 I was able to get audiobooks for 3/7 books 📚! 👏🏽

Looked up the synopsis, its a civil war romance. So I can expect inter-racial conflict…

Check-ins/updates:

Still lost in Chapter 3… Book gifts 🎁😍

Chapter 6

Story picked up after the prisonbreak 😄 Feel like the plot is slowly coming together 😂 My attention would wander a bit… Still unsure how this relates to being a spy… 

Indigo by Beverly Jenkins… Except she was a conductor for the underground railroad… But they have a sick bed/caretaking component, which I love ❤️ Still early on but it’s piqued my interest 😂

Chapter 17

Still no action whatsoever, this story got instinct the last couple of chapters… before that it was a little boring because nothing was really happening… 🤷🏽‍♀️ The paternity reveal made the play a lot more interesting 🤔 I still see a similarity with indigo but it only goes so far at the fact that both he and Galen were injured… this is like that, vastly different story lines though….

Chapter 22

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a nurse, but healthcare in the storyline piques my interest every time! That explains my love for the sick bed/caretaking trope commonly found in romance books 📚 Also interesting 🤔 how Marley-Ewen grew cold after intimacy…Oftentimes, nursing/caretaking helps women find a place they can help in when in war 👏🏽 I appreciate how the role helps women find a place 😄

End of book

Didn’t really get an HEA vibe… more like a HFN… Loced Ewen>Marley.. always felt one of her feet were out the door… Felt the end wrapped up too quickly…
