It is not clear to me which genre Bowersock is aiming for, as he seems to have three targets: a wonderful Christmas romance (reminiscent of Same Time Next Year), politics and government (the Mob, Presidential history, FBI) and Florida's seamier lifestyle. He is well versed in the latter two areas, but I prefer my fictional romance to exist in a realm less penetrated by history lessons and modern (pop) references.
The love story part is beautiful and there are many themes of value to consider in this tale, but the author's amoral attitude peeks through the chinks, as he seeks to show off his behind-the-scenes knowledge or theories re the JFK assassination. Bowersock was certainly right on back in 1994 when he predicted the computer age. Fascinating plot with constant time and scene shifts--all tied up with kelp and booze... A good read if you like your Romance served with Politics!
