Standing Water by Wendy Day was a really good story. I was sucked hard I got his compelling read with the fantastic characters and wonderful writing. The writing is exquisite. The atmosphere is palpable. And I’m looking forward to reading her backlist titles.

Thank You NetGalley and Open Sky Publishing for your generosity and gifting me a copy of this amazing eARC!

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book in exchange for an honest review!

This book deserves way more hype and attention than what it's getting! It has so many important messages that apply to the real world and I think the author did an amazing job conveying them. I read this in one sitting and was completely immersed in the story the whole time. The characters felt like real people going through a difficult time, and the character progression throughout the story was amazing. More people need to read this!

3.75 stars! Really fun and relatively fast read! There were some parts that felt a little too long and some parts where it felt like some information was missing, but overall a really interesting story! It actually made me emotional at point which is rare for me in books. I would love to see a sequel! Overall the writing was well put together and I loved the Christian influences in some parts of the book and the clean language. I also wasnt expecting the romance subplot which was a nice surprise! Thank you to Netgalley and Open Sky Publishing for the Arc.

The premise for this book caught my attention immediately and I knew the minute that I was accepted for the ARC on Netgalley that I wanted to absolutely devour it.

This was a fun and immersive read. I absolutely loved how the characters were written and thought they all brought something so fantastic to the book. Jamie is the perfect main character to have in a book like this.

Personally, I felt like this was missing something. I would’ve loved for there to be more action. I usually love character-driven books but I feel like with a book like this, there should be a good mixture of plot and character focus. However, that is entirely my own opinion and I know some people will actually enjoy that.

I can see this becoming a great movie or tv-series and honestly? I would devour that.

Thank you to NetGalley and Open Sky Publishing for providing me with this ARC. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
