So what is geocaching? Basically it is a worldwide GPS based treasure hunt. You can use your smartphone with an app, or a GPS unit itself. The idea is to use GPS to find boxes, ranging in size, which people have hidden. There are clues which can be used, and you can always gain further information from previous finders comments and/or photos. It's something which appeals to all ages and is great fun.
But onto the story! Ally stumbles into the world of geocaches by pure chance. On hearing about it she decides to try it out as a way of giving her something to do which involved getting out and about. On her first trip out she bumps into Seth, a fellow geocaching fan. Seth kindle offers to help Ally get used to the process.
A shared interest in geocaching turns into something more. But issues from the past come to the fore, and unfortunately true love hits a huge bump in the road. Will the past ruin what is happening in the present, or does fate have a happier ending for this pair?
This is a lovely sweet story about a couple who deserve happiness in their lives. Laughter and tears both feature a lot. The author really drew me in immediately with the first chapter, and I was engrossed in the story until the end. A lot happens in the story but, for me, the geocaching element certainly gave it that little something extra.
Give the story a try and, should you be intrigued enough, give geocaching a try. At the very least you will hopefully enjoy a great story. But who knows, perhaps you will discover places you didn't know existed.
So, I didn't not finish the book. I did read some of the reviews and found I agreed more with the 2-3 star reviews than I did the higher ones. I'm sure it is a story a lot of folks will enjoy, just not for me.
When I first heard about Tracy’s novel Caching In, I was a bit mystified because I had never heard of geocaching and hadn’t the slightest idea what is was. For those who have never head of it, geocaching is an outdoor game of searching for hidden objects by using Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates posted on the Internet. It might be easier to explain that it’s like a treasure hunt. You find things called a cache that other people have hidden to find; a cache is the treasure you find. You don’t get to keep it, but you do get to claim that you’ve found it and provide evidence that you found it. It sounds like a fun hobby and it’s always fun and exciting for me to learn about something new through my reading.
Within the first few pages, I knew that Tracy was going to be one of my new favorite authors and had earned herself a spot on my list of go-to authors. I enjoyed her writing style and sense of humor and I can’t wait to read all of her previous novels as soon as possible! The minute I finished reading Caching In I was inspired to read a short story she’d written, Early Bird Special.
Ally has had a string of unfortunate events in her life from a failed romance to a dead-end job and she’s at the point where things are so bad that they can only get better. Her only love interest is Harry Styles [yes, THE Harry Styles from One Direction] but she’s completely happy with her fictitious boyfriend for the moment. When she decides to pick up a new hobby, she meets gorgeous Seth Hayes and it looks like things in her life might finally start falling into place.
One of the things I loved in the story were the strong family bonds and romantic relationships throughout the novel.Read more ›
