Review: CALL IT CHEMISTRY by D.J. Van Oss

Working in the marketing department with her Graphic Design degree has given Kate such fierce ambition to move up the corporate ladder. She was a true artist and was hoping to land an account that would allow her to utilize her skills. It would just figure that her first account would end up steering her away from the big city to her small town of Iowa. Thing was she didn’t have a clue about marketing chemicals that cleaned up cow poop, not to mention she had no intention of ever seeing her hometown again.

So she moves back into her old house, where an old school crush apparently still lives next door to.

Story takes the reader through the lackadaisical small-town life, which was somewhat lagging at times, especially when Kate reminisces about her Hart Dixie past. In fact, the whole thing kept going at a drawling pace.  Additionally, story constantly shifted between past and present, which was particularly annoying for me. Not to mention that there were a bunch of names thrown in there, making it sound like we should remember these characters. Who? What?

I thought the title was a little clever and the plot sounded interesting at first. But, although the story was written pretty well, I just couldn’t fall into the story.


My rating: 2 stars
