The Unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair by Amy Makechnie

After reading the first couple of chapters, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. (Bear with me, I swear this is a positive review.) It took me awhile to figure out why it wasn’t sticking with me, but I finally figured out that I wasn’t connecting with the main character. Guinevere has such a strong personality and completely opposite of myself, so it was hard to root for her. But as I continued reading, the richness and depth of Gwyn, Bitty, Micah, Jimmy, and Gaysie, along with their unique personalities and the consistency of the characters, are what made this such a fantastic book.

Early on, Amy Makechnie presents the reader with two questions that are burning to be answered. 1. What happened to Guinevere’s mother? and 2. What is the accident from Gaysie’s past that no one will talk about? During the first half of the story, Makechnie takes mercy on her readers and reveals the answer to the first question.

The final third of the novel is a roller coaster of emotion. You’re on the edge of your seat the entire time, and can feel the answer to that second question within your reach, but then it slips away again. The book becomes impossible to put down at this point. Those last couple of chapters leave you with both joy and heartbreak, and when you think it’s over, Makechnie throws a curve ball at you.

THE UNFORGETTABLE GUINEVERE ST. CLAIR is the perfect mix between Sherlock Holmes and Huckleberry Finn, and I hold out hope that there will more shenanigans and adventures featuring the truly unforgettable Guinevere St. Clair.
