It’s worth mentioning that this story is a little different to Fletcher’s previous fiction novel in the sense that it is less romance orientated and provides a lot more action in the second half. Yes, romance does feature throughout but the second half of the book is very action packed with a couple of quite violent scenes. However, what still remains is the author’s ability to write such unique, likable characters proven in this case through the main character Cherry. I also really love the way in which the author writes an element of magic into real life which comes across as something you can completely imagine happening in real life which only adds to the likability of this story.
I did find the story to be somewhat paced too face at times. At points when reading I felt that things escalated quickly, particularly in the second half of the book, but ultimately it is a relatively long book already so I can completely understand the quick movement of the story. However, I personally would’ve been happy with a few more chapters.
Cherry has a hidden talent. She can see things other people can't and she decided a long time ago to use this skill to help others. As far as the rest of the town is concerned she's simply the kind-hearted young woman who runs the local bakery, but in private she uses her gift to add something special to her cakes so that after just one mouthful the townspeople start to feel better about their lives. They don't know why they're drawn to Cherry's bakery - they just know that they're safe there and that's how Cherry likes it. She can help them in secret and no one will ever need to know the truth behind her gift.
And then Chase arrives in town and threatens to undo all the good Cherry has done. Because it turns out she's not the only one who can see what she sees . . .
A story of love, food and a little bit of magic, All That She Can See is an enchanting and beautiful novel that's guaranteed to be the most magical story you'll read all year.
