All The Love You Write by D.G Driver is a story about love. Young love, first love, true love, timeless love, and the power of love letters.
Mark and Bethany are two mismatched high school seniors in a new relationship. It’s doomed to fail. Mark has adored Bethany since middle school, and she’s finally giving him a chance. Only, he’s clumsy at romance and knows he’ll lose her because of it. Bethany thinks Mark is sweet. Only, she’s afraid to commit her whole heart to him because he’s going into the army and she’s headed off to college. Fifty years earlier, a boy and a girl from the same high school shared an amazing love story. They have now returned as ghosts and are interfering in Mark and Bethany’s relationship.
The plot had us so eager to read this book. It has everything you could possibly want romance, supernatural and a bit of mystery.
There is one flaw in the story, Mark one of the lead characters is not at all likeable. His attempts at wooing Bethany at the beginning, while you know the writer wants you to see them as romantic, come across as the poor guy is trying too hard and are slightly creepy. If it happened in real life there is no we’d end up dating Mark as his ways of expressing his feelings are obsessive. Also, some of the other characters reactions to the things Mark tells them seems far too “normal”, yet if someone had told us that we’d be a little concerned for them. Whereas Bethany’s character was great well written who you clearly saw go on a progressive and defined journey throughout the course of the story.
Other than that this is a very nice story. The author at times is quite poetic and creates some very vivid imagery that lends itself well to the story and how it unfolds.
Overall we found this book an enjoyable read and the ending had us smiling as it was very cute.
All The Love You Write will be released on August 2o. You can purchase it here.
