5:48 by Chloe Cheng (AnchoredShips)

Blurb (from Goodreads):
Claire is lost and scared and utterly alone. Her family is in shambles after the death of her older sister Ina, and she’s left to pick up the broken pieces of herself as her life heads into a downwards spiral of loneliness. Her heart leads her to 5:48, a little cafe by 33rd street, where she finds her new home amidst the waitstaff: Jasper, the waiter by day and painter by night; Ezra, the young baker; and Drew, the flirtatious chef.

This family has gone a long way from finding each other, and they’ll be going a long way together too as reality comes catching up to them, threatening the newfound happiness they’ve found with each other. Secrets are revealed, pasts become presents, and lives are changed. Slowly but surely, they all find their way back home.

This was an okay story, but I lost interest.

The characters in this were all a little messed up, and all had problems that they were trying to deal with. I found them quite interesting at first, but after a while I just didn’t feel like they were really getting past their problems.

The storyline in this was alright, but I lost interest. The pace was a bit slow, there wasn’t much excitement or action, and there wasn’t really any romance either. I have to say that a lack of action, a lack of romance, and a slow plotline is unlikely to entertain me.

The ending to this was a real ‘Happily Ever After’ sort of ending, and I was pleased for the mysteries in this book to have been solved. I just didn’t enjoy this story though, and I was glad that it was over really.
Overall; not for me,
5.5 out of 10
