Ahh much better. The first episode was enjoyable but a bit boring . The plans were set in the first episode so now we can get back to the fun stuff. Broken Shell Island is still a lot of fun. It’s a bit odd but still very magical and delightful. It’s definitely a bit reminiscent of Wonderland. Cinnamon bun fields? Licorice-rope bugs? Talking tigers? It’s a bit weird but I can’t help but want to know more.
Opal and Peter are back to playful banter which I appreciated. It feels very natural and I couldn’t help but grin while reading. Normally romance in books bothers me but this is very sweet. There’s no insta-love or lust. It’s just two people spending time together and growing fond of each other.
The bottom line? Enjoyable!
