A Brighter Palette by Brigham Vaughn


Sometimes all the ingredients are in place and in the right proportion. The pace is also spot on. But how the final dish turns out is entirely on the skill of the cook.

Annie Slocum is a freelance journalist who is living from cheque to cheque. She’s not exactly thrilled with the work she’s getting and her last break-up left her with no place to stay so she’s now sharing an apartment with three other people. One random Friday evening she visits a collagemate’s gallery to take a look-see at the paintings. She meets one of the artist’s, Siobhán Murray, and the two hit it off immediately. And they hit it off so well that Annie only returns back to her apartment late Sunday afternoon. The connection doesn’t end with that one weekend, but both the women have issues to wrestle with to actually be together. Annie is bisexual and Siobhán has been badly burnt in a bisexual relationship. On the other hand, Siobhán has an unattractive penchant for intense jealousy plus she hasn’t completely left a past love behind.

We are big, big fans of insta-attraction and insta-love but the way it happens in this one wasn’t very convincing. In fact, the first time Siobhán start touching Annie (in a restaurant), we found it rather cringe-worthy. With the amount of trauma, drama and heat (admittedly sexy sex scenes) we should’ve liked this book – but we didn’t. We couldn’t connect to either of the MCs and their relationship left us completely untouched. Annie is definitely nicer of the two and her issue/s with Siobhán are much more real than the other way round. In fact, as the story and relationship progressed, Siobhán became more and more unattractive as a person. There is something about the writing that didn’t reach us at all. In fact, the most convincing relationships were Annie’s with her roommates.

This is one of those books that we wanted to like but try as we might, we just couldn’t like it on any level despite loving the cover.
