Editorial Reviews

Review

"...this debut novel carries the promise that another Wiregrass native is poised to become an important part of the contemporary fiction landscape,"

--Wiregrass Living Magazine, January/February 2011 --Wiregrass Living Magazine

"I've told only two unpublished novelists (from well over a hundred novelists and short-story authors) their work was excellent -- you are the third."

     --Harvey Stanbrough - author, poet, editor --Harvey Stanbrough

From the Author

The fictional stories I write are derived from the real world--where we all live--stories about the world as it is, strange and real and full of grace. As individuals we are unique works of art, but within our human experiences (successes, failures, and heartaches) we are connected by a common thread. It is my goal that each story I write entertain, evoke emotion, and leave my readers with a message of hope for a better tomorrow.

I invite you to join me on a "Flight to Paradise". --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.

A friend of mine gave me her copy of this book. That was my first clue to how it would turn out - I must confess that neither of us part with really good reads easily.

I normally will finish a novel no matter how bad I find it, however I found this author's writing style so juvenile and unpolished that I couldn't continue. The misogynistic, stereotyped female characters frustrated me and parts of the narrative were clumsy to read.

I wanted to like this. Unfortunately, I found myself also passing it on. There are people here who liked it, so hopefully it will find a home with someone like them.

I decided to give this book a try after reading the previous reviews. I was incredibly disappointed. There are a number of distracting grammatical mistakes throughout the story. I would easily be able to ignore those if it weren't for the slow moving plot that contains a lot of telling and chucks of narrative text that break up the action. Finally, the author worked way too hard on making the characters sound Southern. They instead come off sounding sterotypical and fake. In fact, much of the diaglogue feels fake and far to stilted. Overall, the premise had promise (I love reunion stories), but failed to deliver. I won't be reading the second the book.

When I got into this book, I began to wonder if Nicholas Sparks was writing under a pseudonym! I am a huge Sparks fan, and the story was reminiscent of his work. However, it is delightful to discover that Mike Coe is a very different author with similar insight into human emotions and possesses comparable ability to weave and intertwine characters into intriguing storylines. Another wonderful thing about the trilogy - no one is on drugs, no one is abusive, there are no alcoholics, and I can read all three books without cringing over foul language. It is just good clean reading enjoyment with all the components that grab you and won't let you go until you have reached the climactic conclusion. This 3-book series would make great movies and I hope someone with the ability to make that happen takes notice and does so. I became a die-hard Mike Coe fan before I was mid-way through this first book!

Flight to Paradise is a novel about a couple that "were meant to be" but due to sabotages in their relationship from family and friends, and dishonesty between the couple themselves, it took years for them to finally become husband and wife. Sounds like your typical romance novel, without steamy sex scenes, but Mr. Coe compares his work with the biblical story of David and Bathsheba.

This book falls in the "can't put it down" category. Throughout most of the book my reaction was to want to grab the main characters by the collar and say, "What's the matter with you - can't you see that you are digging your own hole and getting ready to jump into it?" Then comes the ending which encapsulates the entire meaning of "didn't see that one coming". Perhaps a Biblical excerpt best describes this novel - "There are 3 things that endure, faith, hope and love and greatest of these is love".

It has caused me to reflect on the grace and .mercy I have been shown by God throughout my life. Over and over He has taken the ashes of my hurts and failures and given me beauty instead of what I deserve. I did not have an earthly father who poured wealth upon me the way the character, Keri, did. But, more important and wonderful, my heavenly Father sent His Son to die for me and give me eternity spent with them.

I like the characters in this story, and the author did a good job in giving then all their own personalities. However, when he worked the story into climaxes, I could see what was coming. I knew what was going to happen before I was meant to. I hate that in a novel. There are also a number of punctuation errors (commas thrown around) that distracted me. (And Good Will is spelled Goodwill and not italicized.) Even with its faults, I will read the rest of the trilogy - I'm a sucker for a love story.

I loved this story and the characters. The writing drew me in, getting so attached to each person I couldn't put it down. Such a great love story! It wasn't your basic shallow love story though, it felt real, keeping my emotions going at every turn. Would highly recommend this book!
