When I read the reviews for this book- how could I not buy it?
I bought this book while traveling in Mexico and it made a fabulous read while lolling on the beach in Rincon de Guayabitos, Mexico.
But don’t feel that you have to be on vacation to enjoy this book.
The author sets the stage nicely with a good attention to opening details before we become too engrossed in the story.
Our main character, Kit, is a freelancer. The author knows the freelancer mindset well as I had a few chuckles when it came to Kit’s reaction to some of the freelance gigs since they rang quite true more than once or twice.
Kit is a complex character and the author really does a great job in peeling back the layers to show us the different versions of Kit- the musician Kit, the freelance Kit, the Kit with a younger girlfriend (Selita) and the Kit with his long time girlfriend (Alana).
Hitting mid life, Kit decides to divert off the road well traveled. I won’t give any spoilers but I really liked the interaction between Kit and Alana when this matter unfolded. It rang true and I felt the social veneer really disappeared and we saw the emotions- often raw and sometimes painful as well as wistful.
This is truly a story about life- the choices we make, the regrets, the plans, the hopes and dreams.
I liked Kit a lot- yes he definitely had some flaws – but don’t we all? There was also a sense of wanting to do the right thing and a sense of goodness to him. The author definitely gets kudos from me as Kit’s character was exceptionally well created.
I was impressed that this was a debut book- as I was engrossed from start to finish with zero lag time.
I liked this book a lot – I definitely recommend it and hope to see more books from this author.
