Book Description

THE FIX-IT MAN by DONALD WELLS

The author of DOUBLE OR NOTHING, THE MANY AND THE ONE and THE TAKEN! SERIES.

THE FIX-IT MAN

John Faron is a natural-born tinkerer who can apparently fix anything.

But when he's forced by the actions of a madman to make an unthinkable choice,
he soon finds that the one thing he can't mend, is his own broken heart.

Sixteen year old Johnny has a dream. He wants to build an engine that can get a hundred miles to the gallon.

While working in his grandfather's fix-it shop, he meets Felicia Delgado, and the young girl steals his heart.

Meanwhile, there's a killer hunting down young women and getting away with murder.

Years later, when circumstances conspire to tear Johnny and Felicia apart, John is rescued from heartache by a new love.

With his dream in sight and his new love at his side, John is ready to put the past behind him and marry.

However, the killer now has him in his sights and seeks revenge against John for exposing him to the police.

When the killer strikes, his attack leaves John unscathed, but places both his new love and Felicia square in the ravenous maw of imminent death.

With a daring, near suicidal act, John may be able to save one of the women he loves, but which one?

Will he sacrifice Felicia, or choose to save the woman who brought him back from despair, a woman who loves him more than life.

It's an unthinkable choice and its resolution will shape John's life forever.

THE FIX-IT MAN - A story of true love and revenge

4.0 out of 5 stars A heart, a dream and a boy coming of age... March 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Fix-it-Man tells the story of sixteen year old Johnny,who meets Felicia, a thirteen year old girl, when she brings him her broken heart to fix while he is working in his grandfather's fix-it-shop. That drew me right into Johnny's story. How could it not? Over time, Johnny falls in love with Felicia, with a love that is so deep that it will affect everything he does in his life.

Johnny has two dreams. One is to marry Felicia, and the other is to develope an engine that gets 100 miles to the gallon of gas. We follow Johnny's life to find out if either, or both, come true. This isn't the easiest story I have ever read and I don't pretend to understand some of the decisions Johnny makes in his life, but I like Johnny. He is a good but flawed man just trying to keep his dreams alive.

The author has done a very good job of telling Johnny's story. I kept trying to put my Kindle down to do chores, but found myself running back to read a little more. I will reread this book again because I rushed through it the first time trying to find out what happens to Johnny, and if his dreams come true. I think that this is the hallmark of an author who can tell a good story. Some books I can savor while reading. This one wasn't one of those. This book had me so invested in wanting Johnny's dreams to come true that I couldn't savor it. I had to hurry to find out what happened on the next page, in the next chapter.

The author gifted me this book, but I would have been happy to buy it. It is a wonderful story of a young man who grows up just trying to make the best decisions he can while following his dreams. Johnny truly tries to be "the fix-it-man" and I think he succeeds. I really enjoyed this book. It is a keeper and one I will be rereading and recommending.

5.0 out of 5 stars not my kind of book but.... April 2, 2011
By 317537
Format:Paperback
This is not the type of book I normally read but I once again found myself putting off things that needed to be done to read this book. Donald Wells is an excellent writer. His other book, Double of Nothing was another book I could not put down.I prefer a slow moving feel good book,this was totally not like that. There is something new happening in every chapter, and at times I really disliked some of the characters in the book. But, having said that it was a book that I just couldn't put down. I am not sure what category to put this book in, it was a romance with suspense with some mystery.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting reading April 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a sweet story of true love with a bit of murder mystery mixed in. I found myself wanting to know what happened next. This story was not as indepth a mystery as I would normally read, but it held my attention and I looked forward to knowing what might happen next in the story. This was the first book I had read that Donald Wells had written, but it will not be the last! I enjoyed the book and look forward to seeing what Mr. Wells presents in his next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE this book! March 29, 2011
By Teena
Format:Kindle Edition
I LOVED it! I love reading the kind of book that you just can't put down...and this was one of them. I stayed up almost all night to finish it. I can't even count how many cups of hot tea I made, my favorite thing to drink, when I'm reading.I didn't want to go to bed until I knew how this story ended. It was great!Donald Wells has a way of making you feel his story. I can't wait to read his other books which I am putting on my Kindle right now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Puttering in a garage isn't always a bad thing April 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book - was alright. It was a simple read, not too taxing. A coming of age story filled with angst, some 'what if' moments of lost love, a suspenseful and ultimately untimely death and some melodramatic moments thrown in.
Personally - the story should have been 2 or 3 elements, not the 7 or so that it chose to branch off into, but like life, situations never come in singles.
As a relaxing and just 'get away from it all' read - this is perfectly acceptable. And while the author does a reasonable job of developing the female characters, there was something 'off' about the approaches many took, feeling more in line with a fantasy fulfillment than an actual woman.

4.0 out of 5 stars suprised March 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a really fun book to read!!!!! I didn't expect it to be very good and thought I would start it to see how I liked it. I don't always agree with some of the choices the main chararcter makes, but over all a great read. I already purchased another book by this author.
