Book Review: Of Dreams and Ceremonies (Butterfly Hunter, #2) by Julie Bozza

Of Dreams and Ceremonies (Butterfly Hunter)
It seemed like a great idea at the time… Aussie Dave Taylor has followed Nicholas Goring to England, and the lovers have become engaged. But now Dave has to cope with living in a mansion full of family and servants, making wedding plans, getting his head around visa applications, and wondering why on earth he’d ever want to wear a ‘mourning suit’. He’s not sure if it will prove any easier, but right now Dave would love to just skip ahead to the honeymoon…

Jewel's rating:

Of Dreams and Ceremonies starts up right where Butterfly Hunter left off. There is a wedding to plan and visa concerns for David, because they want to live in Australia. I thought it was a good follow up to Butterfly Hunter, but it didn't wow me.

Dave and Nicholas have only been a couple for a few short weeks, but they seem like they have been together for forever and a day. They seem to almost be able to read each others minds and finish each others sentences. That kind of ties in to the mysticism a bit from book 1 with the two of them almost seeming to have been 'fated'.

But what I loved most about Butterfly Hunter seemed to be missing, here. There was little tension or conflict and the story felt a little too drawn out. The bit of mystery that was introduced during the honeymoon was ok, but it took over a bit too much for my tastes, though I did like the standing stones, as well as the corroboree later on.

So, while I liked Of Dreams and Ceremonies, I didn't love it and would put it at about 3 stars.

Happy reading!
