The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love
By Angela Hunt
Genre: Christian Fiction
This might get 2.5/5 stars. I haven’t read the first book for years, so I had forgotten most of it. I don’t know if that influenced my reading of the second book or not. This book is kind of interesting because it’s a sequel to the movie more than to the book. Angela explains in her afterword that she changed a name and location, but that’s it. I wish that explanation had been in the beginning of the book, though. I could see how people could get confused if they’d just read the first book. This story is about Peyton and Kingston’s continuing relationship and her difficulty to commit.
The investigation that Peyton is doing in this story isn’t nearly as interesting or in-depth as the first one (from what I remember). This story just felt so short to me. Every time a problem came up, I never had the opportunity to actually be worried about it before it was resolved. I didn’t really care about the characters because I didn’t feel like I had enough time to get to know them. It wasn’t a bad book, it just wasn’t that interesting or engaging. I would recommend only reading this book if you’ve just read the first one. Otherwise, it falls short.
