What a story. I’m also reading the Bestseller We Need to Talk About Kevin, a completely different genre, but this knocks that into a cocked hat.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. We are led on a magical quest with our leading lady, Famous. Famous for what? We like her.
She’s kind and pleasant and one of those lovely people that the world needs more of. Following in her deceased mother’s quirky footsteps, we are taken with Famous from America to Ireland and beyond.
The characters she meets along the way help her on her journey as she finds herself and discovers who she is.
Her mother’s diary from her young adulthood helps her, but it isn’t all it seems—and the clues don’t always unravel as she needs them. Famous is compelled to take on the quest into foreign lands, with danger lurking at every turn.
She discovers that her mother was so loved as she meets with people from her mom’s past. However, not everybody is friendly, and she has to work out who is really on her side.
The pace is fabulous, the description great, and the dialogue fluid and believable. I loved it and will be looking out for future books by this talented lady.
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
