Astrid Inside/Out – Louise McBain

I really liked Claiming Camille and Maybe Charlotte and was hoping to get the same feeling of simple enjoyment with this novel, my third by Louise McBain.

Unfortunately, I didn’t. I found the premise interesting, the idea that an unwanted physical change might be seen as an improvement by the people close the character but not by the character themselves. I never really got into the story, however, and while Astrid was an interesting character, the romance felt rushed and the writing a bit too choppy, not flowing enough.

My favourite part was the author’s description of nature. McBain obviously loves the outside (if you follow her on social media, you already know that) and shares that love with her readers through this book. I hope she keeps doing that in her future books.
