Researcher and ghost writer Tracy Price is hired to help dreamy rock star Jesse Elliot with his memoir. Sparks fly, naturally, but her cautious nature and his cockiness lead to misunderstandings and doubts. Meanwhile, Tracy and her partner are digging up intriguing clues about a long-dead poet from the 1930s, whose story may be the key that unlocks their success, as well as freedom from the odious boss, AKA “the dragon.”
Locke knits these two plot lines together in a clever and touching way. The on-again, off-again romance between Tracy and Jesse delivers humor and heartache. I read this novel during the very busy run-up to the holidays, and made sure to carve out a precious hour each day to escape to Albuquerque and see what new adventure or screw-up Tracy would deliver. Tracy’s the sort of heroine who shoots herself in the foot so often that she’s going to need a much smaller shoe, but Locke makes her an extremely sympathetic, well-rounded character all the same. Her quirky snack concoctions, awkwardness around achingly-handsome Jesse, her dogged independence, and her warm heart make her a character to fall in love with. The same holds true for her circle of friends, all well-rounded characters I enjoyed spending time with. This book delivers a satisfying resolution and plenty of warm fuzzies—sweet but not cloying, and great fun.
The protagonist's struggle was universal. Wanting to be loved, known and understood but at the same time fearing it. I was constantly rooting for her while also cringing as I saw another bad decision coming her way.
The cast of characters kept up the fun banter throughout the book, there was a little mystery to be solved and a satisfying love story to round out the character's journey.
Many romance stories end up being clichéd with the same types of characters, and romantic comedies are frequently no different. However, I absolutely fell in love with Tracy's personality. At times, she's laugh out loud funny, and I thought Tracy's inner dialogue was a unique way to bring her character to life. Tracy's best friend was also a hoot. Everyone should have a friend like her.
It's generally pretty easy to guess what will happen in a romance story, but that's not the case here. While it's not suspenseful, there are enough humorous twists and turns to keep the reader going.
Would I recommend this book? Absolutely. If you're not into romantic comedy novels, this one just might change your mind.
"He can walk around unrecognized, but he rarely goes unnoticed."
Googling Jesse, Tracy finds fragments about Jesse’s life, but can’t get a handle on the big picture. Who is this man? She isn’t very impressed. That is, until she meets him for their first session.
"His presence was blaring, though his clothing was nothing out of the ordinary…. His face was the main attraction. Like a movie marquee, it demanded attention…. a sculpted masterpiece."
Tracy is mesmerized by him, totally out of character for her. She can’t get him out of her mind.
Meanwhile, Tracy and her colleague Darren are given an assignment to investigate the disappearance of writer Loretta Galienda seventy-five years earlier. Can Tracy and Darren uncover the mystery of what happened to the controversial author so many years ago?
Will Tracy and Jesse finally acknowledge the strength of their attraction to each other? And will they finally discover and come to terms with what they want from each other, and where they want their lives to go?
I enjoyed reading EXIT SIGNS. Tracy’s dialogue, both internal and external, was witty and engaging. And the mystery of Loretta Galienda’s disappearance was an intriguing sub-plot throughout the novel.
If you want to be entertained with a story about jumping out of your comfort zone to take a chance at happiness you never expected, I recommend Patrice Locke’s EXIT SIGNS.
