Convergence by Ginny Yttrup

Release Date - March 1, 2019


Years ago, a stalker tore Denilyn Rossi's life apart. Though he's in jail, recent events convince her that she's being stalked again and all signs point to her original stalker. As a psychology professor and former victim, she has the experience and knowledge to handle what's thrown her way, but when it's you, it's personal and hard to manage.

Adelia Sanchez is a fan of Rossi's work. She has a life to live and things to prove to herself. When she and Deni cross paths, it will lead to unimaginable consequences.

It's been a few years since I've picked up one of Yttrup's novels, but Convergence really intrigued me. It sounded like it was going to be an incredibly creepy ride. 

Sadly, even though chapters were clearly represented as to who was speaking and when it was, I couldn't get past the jumps from one character to the next and past to present. I felt incredibly bogged down by these changes. I was having to really work to keep track and pay attention to the top line of every chapter, and that was a turn off for me. Reading for pleasure shouldn't feel like work. The choppy flow due to the switches made it hard to stay focused and while I wanted to get what was going on, I could never get past that feeling that it felt like I was working to keep up.
