Blog Tour – I Can’t Tell You Why by Elaine Robertson North




Its the last stop on the I Can’t Tell You Why by Elaine Robertson North Blog tour, and of course they say ‘you save the best for last’ right??  (Just joking, all my fellow bloggers are great, make sure you check them all out, see the list  for all the stops on this amazing tour).





If you are not familiar with this author, or her debut novel, please keep reading, I’m about to tell you all about them both!!


Book Synopsis

Having an affair is inconceivable to Dani and yet she’s having one with Alex. He’s married, he’s an actor and she’s his agent.

Then Dani meets Sean, a paparazzi photographer with a formidable reputation. It’s a profession that makes him unpredictable at best. A dangerous trait when his motivation to expose becomes personal.

Dani knows she’s made mistakes. She also knows she’s not the first person who wilfully hurt someone they love and is simply unable to explain why.


My Review

I Can’t Tell You Why is the debut contemporary romance novel by Elaine Robertson North that tells the story about Dani a talent agent and her romantic love triangle.  Dani finds herself having an affair with one of her married clients, Alex and at the same time starts a relationship with a paparazzi photographer Sean.

This book can be difficult for readers who have a problem with infidelity, but is very relatable to women who are struggling with relationship problems. As it states in the title, Dani just can’t tell you why she just doesn’t seem to make good relationship choices and continues to sabotage the ones she’s in.

Depending on your perspective, and your own past experiences, you could either love or hate Dani, and I can see both views.  There are times you just want to grab and shake her and ask her what she’s doing, and others you just want to give her some good advice and help her out.

The authors writing was decent, I did find some of the time lapses in the story a bit confusing, but overall its a good start for a debut novel.  For a contemporary romance I would have liked to have gotten a little more “feeling” from the characters, but given the title, I guess they just didn’t know how they felt, and hey, sometimes that happens in life!  I’m anxious to read what Ms. North comes up with next.  I have to give her a good solid 3 1/2 stars for this start to her writing career.

Thank you to Elaine Robertson North and to Rachels Random Resourses for the copy of this book for a honest and unbiased review.
