Read + Review: No One Else Can Have You, by Kathleen Hale

No One Else Can Have You chronicles the life of Kippy Bushman. After the tragic death of her best friend, her life is in shambles. Though the alleged murderer has already been caught, Kippy believes that there could still be a killer at large and begins to investigate. Her constant probing causes her to land in all sorts of trouble, and involves her in a seemingly shady bunch of people, including a soldier dishonorably discharged from the military. In order to solve the mystery of her friend’s death, and perhaps prevent more killings, Kippy must rely on her new found friends as well as herself to see her through.

This book was easy to read and engaging from beginning to the end. While nothing much happened in the opening chapters, I didn’t feel that the action is slow. It remained engaging because the book is well written. I read it in 24 hours. A great book for a rainy day. I’d recommend it for anyone that wants a nice, easy weekend read.

One of my favorite parts of the book was Kippy’s escape. I won’t say from where, but I felt like I was right there next to her. When it first appeared as if she wouldn’t accomplish her goal, my heart sank. Also I loved the distinction between the main characters. They all appeared very different, unlike in some books when they all mesh together. Great writing and a good book.

four stars
