Finding Margo was enjoyable on four fronts, part serious, hilarious, mysterious and touching tenderness . It takes a lot of talent to cover all these aspects of a story, but Jen Turano does it with expert precision.
The author had me feeling some sympathy for pop music star, Margo Hartmann and her need to escape the reality of her glitzy life. Not easy to accomplish as it appears she has everything most people would think was needed for happiness, beauty, wealth and success.. I loved her quirky, sassy and yet vulnerable character. Brock Moore was a fantastic as the compelling and attractive FBI agent on leave to discover the circumstance of his sister's death. From their first meeting the chemistry is there. He finds her fascinating, she finds him intriguing. I liked Margo's impulsive move towards Brock and the reaction that follows.
The beautiful Ohio Amish country setting, the mystery surrounding the disappearance of three children years ago, the suspicious death of Brock's sister and the diabolical actions of the secondary characters all had me reading late into the night. I can't forget to mention Gabby, the duck who started the whole thing! The final chapter had me sighing with satisfaction and the epilogue gives just enough of a preview to let me know where the series is headed.
I loved this book! It was such a creative storyline, I was thoroughly entertained. I can not wait for book two in the series. In the meantime, I'll be backtracking and reading Turano's historical books. I appreciate Gilead making a copy of Finding Margo available for review.
Margo Hartman is tired. She’s tired of being in the public eye, tired of touring, and most of all, tired of her mother and manager dictating her life. On the last night of her concert tour, she’s ready to take a break but instead she’s bombarded with upcoming events and opportunities. So Margo decides to leave.
The only problem with that? Margo has spent her life with other people doing things for her. From styling her hair, makeup, and wardrobe, to personal assistants who do everything else for her, she’s lived a cushy yet sheltered life. But the open road calls and Margo’s stress level lowers with the miles.
Until she ends up in small town Ohio. A town that is predominately made up of Amish and Mennonite families. And then things get weird. People start to recognize her—but not for the reason they should. When someone tries to shoot her, her quick stop in town becomes a bit more permanent.
Now, I admit one of the hardest genres of fiction for me to get into is Amish, but this book was so much more than that. The main character is a pop princess (a la Taylor Swift), the handsome deputy who Margo first meets is more than meets the eye, and the little town holds a secret that kept me turning the pages until the end.
And the best part? Judging from the last chapter of Finding Margo, readers will get to visit this little Ohio town again.
I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
Margo Hartman is such an intriguing character, and I loved that while she was sweet and spunky like Jen's other characters, she was just different enough that it gave a new insight into Jen's talent.
I absolutely loved the mystery of this novel and the truth behind Margo’s story! I’m already dying to read the next book in the series because I want to know what happened to the other two children (you’ll figure out what I’m talking about if you read this one!). The mystery just took me in from page one, and I absolutely love all things Amish, so this novel was perfect for me!!! Therefore I couldn’t help giving it all five bookshelves, and a place on my all-time favorites list! Jen always writes novels that I always can’t help but love, so while I’m sad this is a shorter review than I normally write, I’m glad I got to read this book at all!
