Publisher's Summary

The much anticipated follow up to the New York Times best-seller Hush, Hush.
Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away, and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.
The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl.
Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?

Sophomore success

Nora's character is so damn nosy! It makes for a great story, but i am just shaking my head the whole time.

Really? You're going to trespass again? or No, people just hide things because it is fun, they don't need their privacy or anything. [<--- I should mention that sarcasm font would've been helpful right then]

I cringe thinking about all the crazy things girls do, especially after a break-up. I really enjoyed this sequel. Patch continued to be a mystery even though in Hush,Hush we saw a kinder side to him. Usually once the bad boy has reformed he loses his bad boy tendencies, but this character keeps his and i loved it.

I don't want to give too much away, but i will say that the mystery in this book was great. The story branched off in multiple tangent mysteries, but by the end it all came together nicely. I am not sure i liked the ending though. C'mon a cliffhanger! That is just cruel. If you hate cliffhangers you may want to wait a year so at least you'll have book 3 to read right after.

I could've sworn this narrator had a better Irish accent in Hush, Hush. This time it sounded strange. Other than that she was entertaining and kept the story going on a nice pace. I enjoyed her.

Would you try another book from Becca Fitzpatrick and/or Caitlin Greer?

Yes, I am contemplating buying the third book in the series. The Narrator did a good job. The story about drove me mad. Nora Grey (the main character) basically screws everything up, her back and forth character in emotional stubbornness is the reason for %99 of the problems. I had a real challenge trying to finish this book because %75 percent of the book was her own thoughts of what was happening serious schizophrenia. I had to fast forward it a few times, if it wasn't for my Daughter edging me on to finish I would have broke my iPhone and felt good about it (LOL). If you are more left brain, you will not be able to read this book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Becca Fitzpatrick again?

Like I said, I am going to buy the third book in this series and pray it is not like this one. If it is I am never listing to either my Mom or Daughter again! :) Group Hug!

Which scene was your favorite?

The last 2 chapters brought it all together. I didn't see what was to happen as it came all together quickly.

Could you see Crescendo being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

In this case I think the movie would be better then the book. Don't use the same directors as Twilight series did OMG!! That movie series could have been so much better if a real director had picked it up.

Any additional comments?

I expected Nora to have some powers in this book, I was completely bummed by her lack of abilities. Her only super power was weak spidy senses and super selfish self-centered emotionally unstable'ness! ARG! Shoot me!
