The Loop - Shandy Lawson The Loop was a suspenseful twist on time travel. Ben and Maggie lived the same two days over and over again, and fate led them to the same place to face the same guy and die the same death. But Maggie is able to remember some of the things from previous loops, and Ben is able to bend the loop some, so they try to change what happens. While I enjoyed the story, I had some issues. The first is why Roy was after them. There is a brief explanation that I didn't quite understand about money and a horse track. The second is their seeming insta-love. I get that Maggie can remember Ben, and Ben has a sense of dejavu. Also that they have been through this who knows how many times together, but still I guess I don't get their love for each other despite the fact that they are placed in these incredibly dangerous situations together. The ending was pretty clever and tied up the plot pretty well. It left me satisfied. That aside, I liked the story and their characters. They had personality, and I saw some character growth in this story. Bottom Line: Fun and quick but I wasn't blown away.
