On the surface, that all sounds great but be careful for what you wish for because you might find that after being away from the Blue Coyote Hotel, you’ll find that you’re withdrawing and the problems that you had before reappear again. Suddenly, it’s time for another visit to the Blue Coyote Motel.
This is the premise of the Blue Coyote Motel by Dianne Harman. The book is character driven with a variety of people who are introduced and have problems that need to be solved. It seems that staying at the hotel will solve those problems.
What the people don’t know is that one of the owners of the hotel is Jeffrey Brooks, who worked for a pharmaceutical company and was fired for giving injections of an anti-aging drug to his wife, Maria. Evidently, he wants to continue his experiments and they have found the place to do it since the Blue Coyote Motel is remote and away from other places.
The tension only builds as the people who have problems begin to be addicted to whatever is in the Hotel and can’t help but return to it again so they will be cured of they problems, even though it will only be temporary. Each character only brings out the problems that everyone is experiencing as a result of being in the hotel.
Dianne Harman does an excellent job of creating memorable characters, such as Jeffery Brooks being the mad scientist. The other characters are broken with problems of their own and it’s interesting since they will carry the story with their own problems and build the tension to an exciting climax and how they come together as a group with their problems.
If I can think of some words that best describe Blue Coyote Hotel, it would be thought provoking and disturbing. Since the book relies on the characters making their own decisions about coming to grips with their problems, bringing even more surprises as the book comes to it’s conclusion.
It’s the kind of book that makes you happy that there is such a thing as the FDA even though we may not like them at times. I found this book to be very interesting and fast paced with memorable characters and will be happy to give it five stars.
Filled with intertwining story lines (something I love) the premise of the book (without giving away the great twists and plot) is a Motel, that pumps a "feel good gas" into the rooms of it 's guests - and luckily for us these guests are so well written and differing that we are plunged into a compelling story that encompasses much of society. I said it earlier and I will say it again...a TV show or a movie waiting to be made. I loved it.
In the same brief Prologue, we are introduced to two main characters: Jeffrey, who wants the Nobel Prize for discovering Freedom, and Maria, a "very beautiful and sexy" woman, desiring to escape the barrio,for whom Jeffrey becomes a savior. How will this improbable relationship evolve. The reader must stay tuned.
Next, in successive chapters, we are shown the drug making seemingly miraculous changes to the lives of various characters who visit the Blue Coyote Motel. We know the changes are too good to last, but how will the characters change when the drug wears off?
And we, hooked by the printed page, must keep reading....
