REVIEW: Indigo Blues by Danielle Joseph

SYNOPSIS: I never asked to be famous—or infamous. Such is my fate for briefly dating (and dumping) Adam Spade. Yes, the Adam from the indie rock band Blank Stare who wrote "Indigo Blues"—the song that gave the band overnight success, propelled them to New York City, and stole my precious anonymity. Now I'm pawed by fans, stalked by reporters, and pegged as a vicious heartbreaker. And Adam is still calling me. Doesn't he have better things to do?


With a hit single and a promising career, I should be on top of the world. People on the street are beginning to recognize me, which is cool. And scary. The band is counting on me to write another hit, but I can't stop thinking about Indigo. Why won't she answer the phone?

MY REVIEW: I really enjoyed Danielle Joseph's Indigo Blues. I,as a die-hard romantic,have always wanted that someone compose a song for me and I am sure many of you also might have wished the same... And to have a rocker dude compose a top-of-the-charts song for you and let the world know how heartbroken he is...I know it sounds mean,but I would die if someone did something like that for me!

I must admit,as much as I enjoyed the book,it got a little on my nerves halfway through the book. Indigo and Adam were very believable. I guess I would have,to a certain extent,reacted in the same way Indigo had done. Nevertheless,I found Indigo pretty adamant and I can't believe any girl can be that insensitive and mean! Also,I felt she kept on whining throughout the book and it was really irritating! Adam,on the other hand,was a real softie...he was sweet.

However the characters were well chalked out and Danielle did a great job with the double narrative. I love books which let me get into the minds of the characters and Danielle Joseph excelled at it!

I felt the ending was somewhat rushed and abrupt. I would have liked a more decisive,conclusive ending. The ending failed to satisfy me.

All said,I enjoyed the book quite a lot. Nice,light read.

MY RATING: 3.5/5


  1. I enjoyed this one, too. I also liked Joseph's previous book, Shrinking Violet.
