WARNING: If you have not finished the original series, this review may have spoilers!
When we first meet Sutton Wright, she’s happily married to her college sweetheart and expecting her first baby. Throughout the Wright Series we see her and husband interact and I started to wish that we would get a novella or something about how these two lovebirds met because she was the only Wright sibling without a novel. And then tragedy strikes and I saw that the story we’d get about Sutton wasn’t the one I originally wanted.
How Does It Compare To The Original?
I found the original Wright Series to be very melodramatic. It read like a Dallas TV Soap Opera episode arc and that was fine and all but a little much for my tastes.
Sutton’s story has always intrigued me. It seems to lack the melodrama her siblings’ stories has because its grounded in some realism. It’s powerful in the sense that she has to learn to love again after tragedy.
Some twists were obvious but I did enjoy watching these two finding themselves before they found “we”. We see some good character building here.
Anything I Didn’t Like?
Sutton gave me some whiplash in the final book. She seemed to be all over the place with her feelings and I think the shorter length of each book just made it seem fast and in turn more dramatic than it needed to be.
My Audiobook Experience:
Great listens. The cast did a good job with accents and bringing the characters to life.
Series Rating: 4/5
The Wright Love 4/5 | The Wright One 3.5/5
I felt like this was a step-up for its original series, focusing more on the characters than the drama.
