On Lucky Shores is a great story told by a skilled wordsmith.

I enjoyed the tale so much that I tried to pace myself to six chapters per night, but after getting half-way I couldn't put it down, and finished it in the wee hours of the morning. Be warned, once you start this book it is nigh on impossible to put down.

The development of the two main characters, Chet and Josie, is superb and the author throws a clever emotional curve ball with his depiction of the sheriff. I never spell out the plot in my reviews for fear of spoiling the enjoyment of future readers, however, take my word, you will be hooked on this story.

This is one of the easiest five star reviews that I've penned. Highly recommended.

A man of many talents— a rather good singer, and an even better song writer, Chet Walker is running from his past and has thrown up his job as a fire fighter to become a a travelling musician drifting from small town to small town in search of gigs when he comes upon a billboard offering open mic sessions at the Lucky Shores saloon. His aimless existence comes to an end when he witnesses a car accident and promises the dying man to relay a message to his estranged daughter.

How Chet gets in and out of trouble with a rogue’s gallery of locals that includes the town sheriff is the substance of the plot, which also allows for a hot romance with a the dead man’s feisty daughter, Joey. As things heat up for Chet, it was a pleasure watching him regain confidence and take a chance on friendship and love.

I found myself feeling sad when the book was about to end. I wanted more! I envy the reader who is at page one. You have a great story to look forward to.

Action, adventure, romance and mystery, 'On Lucky Shores' has got pretty much everything.

I felt I was in good hands again in reading this one. The writing flowed and the attention to detail and imagery really sold me on the mountain-setting too. Chet is great character; I loved the way his backstory unfolded as the story progressed. There's quite a few surprises throughout the book and the tension toward the end was ratcheted right up - yet the ending wasn't rushed either.

I also found that while Chet is a witty and clever guy it was great to see that Joey was a match for him; she's a close second favourite character.

Check out 'On Lucky Shores' if you love adventure and action with a strong romantic story-line woven through.

I loved the setting - a small town nestled in the Colorado Rockies. Main character Chet, is finely drawn from his back story that informs his current actions and reactions to his multi-faceted personality – the musician, the martial arts fighter, the drifter, to say nothing of his mysterious knowledge of firefighting and medicine. It takes some time for Chet to come completely into focus – another master stroke of storytelling! A line like, "... focused on the pain and the rain and the water running down the drain." as Chet observes his surroundings and turns them into a tune captures the reader's imagination. A mysterious sheriff, a small town doctor who seems anything but and a damsel in distress round out a team of secondary characters who all hit the right notes. Solid writing - an enjoyable read.

What is it about rural America that generates so many mystery stories? Kerry J Donovan’s On Lucky Shores is an excellent example of the subgenre: A lush lakeside setting, a mystifying car crash, an eligible traveling singer, and a young woman in possession of a diner and other assets that I won’t reveal at the risk of a spoiler. Donovan links all this together in a kind of American picaresque: Chet Walker stops at Lucky Shores looking for a gig, and is reluctantly entangled in a crime investigation; we follow him almost hour by hour as the mystery unravels and romance grows. Donovan’s almost exclusively single point of view technique works – surprisingly; where the text could have been claustrophobic, it is intimate. We are rarely taken outside Chet’s consciousness, but there is the payoff that we know the man well by the end of the book. I have to say that I found the resolution slightly rushed; on reflection, there were signposts throughout the book, but perhaps I didn’t read them carefully enough. This small reservation was offset by a rollicking action ending and a sweet tying up of the romantic loose ends.

Itinerant singer/songwriter Chet Walker is the bearer of a mysterious message for the daughter of a dying man. When he arrives at the small Colorado town of Lucky Shores, he finds himself embroiled in a web of lies and corruption. And he finds himself falling in love with the one woman who may have the key to the truth. A griping tale. I have to say, the author fooled me, which I love. Did not figure out the villain until all was revealed in the exciting end. Don’t miss it.

Kerry Donovan On Lucky Shores
Chet Walker, a young musician travelling around the country to escape the memories of a child’s death, takes a turn off a highway that brings him Lucky Shores in the Colorado Rockies. He is willing to pay for his supper if he can find work as a musician in the town. He sees a truck coming down the rocky path and ends in an accident, tries the pull the hurt man out of the damaged car, only to find that he has to call for help.
The story is full of colorful characters, some angry, some desperate, some rich, others terribly poor. The mayor, the owner of the diner and the sheriff try his patience but in the end, they find him an excellent musician and a worthy friend. Then language is colorful, the men strong, and the ladies strong and beautiful. There are exciting moments where the villains, cloaked as honest men, try to continue their wayward schemes and come a cropper.
Good story. This is a coming of age story, but the age of everyone is a little older than a young adult.
