The writing had so many errors and... just a weirdness to it. I found myself internally re-wording sentences, and taking out unnecessary sentences soooo often in this book. It was as if the narrator had little faith in the reader's capability to fully understand, so she repeated herself far too often, and in doing so, occasionally conflicted with herself. It definitely needs editing. However, getting passed the annoyances, it was a cute idea for a story.
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. I truly adored the story of Ally and Seth. It was intriguing, entertaining, and heart-wrenching and I loved every minute of it. I also loved the relationship between Ally and her brother Perry. It’s so sweet to think that siblings that don’t live close can still manage to stay in close communication over the years.
Caching In was not just a fun contemporary romance novel, though it was thoroughly entertaining. It was filled with important real-life issues like infidelity, being the other woman, recovering after divorce, death of loved ones and ultimately learning to move on and be happy with the life you have with the people that matter most.
Sometimes people act with selfish motives and don’t stop to think that what they’re doing will negatively affect the important people in their lives. Secrets. Lies. Backstabbing. When will it ever end? It’s important to stick up for yourself when you know you deserve something like a promotion or a boyfriend that doesn’t cheat on you. It’s sad commentary that sometimes people get screwed over by the people they think they can trust most in the world.
I can imagine it’s difficult when you’re in a new relationship, to move past having been betrayed and not having a jaded sense of life. How can you ever fully trust someone new when you’ve had your heart terribly broken in the past? When we’re in love, we must allow ourselves to be vulnerable. We can’t allow our fears to keep us from the possibility of love. Facing your fears and working through them is what ultimately makes you stronger.
5 stars to Tracy Krimmer, because I absolutely loved this book!
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.
