Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I wanted to love this book. It has so many positive reviews and was recommended to me in high praise, but sadly it just fell a little flat for me.
She was a bit dull and had no real personality for me. The idea behind the story was pretty interesting and I did really like the little twist on the prophecy wording at the end. It all happens very quickly and Rose accepts the discovery of what Oscar and Caicus are far too easily.
More descriptions and world-building, I wanted to read about the things Rose mentioned instead of just having a sentence telling me it had happened. I wanted some build up and some character growth so that I could feel invested in the characters and what was happening to them. It almost felt like I was reading a short story rather than a full novel. Probably ideal for people who like easy, breezy paranormal books with a splash of light romance.

How I Found You
It follows the stories of Rose and Oscar, a pair of starcrossed lovers Rose is left to spend summer with her aunt and uncle in a secluded manor home while her parents are away. She does this most years and expects quiet and a bit of boredem but that’s until Oscar and his brother arrive.
Now Rose has to face her nightmares, and fight for her life. I really expected something super exciting after reading Gabriella Lepores other book but I didn’t expect another tale of witches. I was blown away though by her fresh take on them and the quick turn from good witches in her last book, to mainly bad witches in this one. She is like, the queen of the witches or something, she’s brilliant. It was sectioned into parts based on who’s POV we were reading which I really liked! It made connecting to both characters really easy and we could see the goodness in Oscar, even while Rose was painting him in such a bad light.
The plot line was marvellous.
How I Found You | Gabriella Lepore
It jumped straight in with action right from the prologue and is eerie and mysterious throughout. I had a million questions on each page but all were answered before the books end.
I found it very slow to get into at first because of the long chapters, the story was addictive, crazy addictive. Yet I found myself put off from reading because I knew the chapter was so long.
This isn’t a problem at all and doesn’t really effect the book, it’s just personal to me gound a mother who reads sneakily between yiu child’s nap times. The characters are wonderfully developed and some, slightly secretive – for lack of a better word.
Caicus appears very sadistic, dark, cold hearted and cruel for the most part of the book. He is arrogant and overly confident. It’s almost like he’s trying hard to yyou evil. Which later into the book we find out is exactly the case and really he just wants a loving family and semi normal life.
Oscar is mysterious at first. His character starts slightly spiteful, this is because he is surrounded by such a cruel influence and has been le;ore around evil witches. In truth, he is kind, gentle and caring. His character is angelic in heart and of course, playful and vain too.
Rose is what I would call shy. She has a lovely character with the perfect mix off sass, wit and sweetness. She is clever and loves reading. She lepoe very withdrawn though and shows very shy qualities. Rose and Oscars relationship is adorable! They worked together perfectly and built up a really emotional part to the book. Oscars pain over what is happening is crushing in my opinion, as a reader and the a fact Lspore is unaware makes it worse.
They are just perfect though. I pretty much love Oscar! The ending of the book, especially the end line broke my soul! The fact this books a standalone is currently tearing me up but I am imagining all kinds of happily ever afters. Overall, this book is fabulous. The fresh take on witches and the complete rehaul of style from her last book shows just how talented Gabriella Lepore really is. She is a mastermind and I am officially a forever fan. If you’re looking for something different, a fan of a good witch tale or a sucker for dreamy book boyfriends then you need to check out this book And then Gabriella’s other books too.
I’m not very often left speechless but at this point, I was beyond words to describe how much I enjoyed this book and writing a full review was a challenge as all I keep thinking is “wow Sixteen-year-old Rose comes to the sleepy village of Millwood to spend her summer holiday with her aunt and uncle while her parents work in Africa.
How I Found You : Gabriella Lepore :
For Rose, she’s expecting the same quiet summer as she always so it’s surprise when two now suddenly showed up and make themselves comfortable in her family home, and no questions asked from her other family members. I’ve heard good things about Lepore so I read this book with good thoughts, and I certainly hoe disappointed yet there were a couple of flaws.
I really enjoyed her new take on witches and the plot was a great combination of intense moments, an evil prophecy, and a continuous threat of a supernatural being that looms over the character. However, there were also some scenes that confused me.
The character of Caicus felt messy at some points, he sort of alternated from being shady and a nice guy rather than going through the process of being more open to other – although I did find it cute how he really did enjoy being with Rose’s family in the end.
Also, the great reveal when Rose realises they’re witches I felt happened a bit too early.
I feel like more could have happened to add the mystery of the two brothers. Overall, I’m sort of in the middle with this book. On one hand, I really enjoyed the characterisation of Rose and the witty conversations between Caicus and Oscar. However, I just didn’t connect with the story, especially when it came lepoee the history of witches, and towards the end it felt really rushed. Gagriella this, I did enjoy the book enough to know I’ll be reading more Lepore’s books!
From the mysterious beginning to the wonderful ending, I was hooked! Every page kept me on the edge of my seat wondering how this terrific story was going to play out. I adored the story telling, the split POV’s and the way the story flowed. I’m truly going to miss Rose, the Valero brothers and the other cast of characters we meet Cannot wait to pick up another of Gabriella’s novel’s she is fast becoming one of my ‘go to’ authors!
