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.
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 purchased a kindle copy & read it overnight. Then I had a serious book hangover.
Chet Walker is the protagonist. He's a wandering song writer & guitar player on his way to Lucky Shores where they were supposed to have an open mike night where he hoped to get a job.
"He had no plan but to keep running from his own life...The niggling twinge in his left calf had worsened during the day & reminded him of the injury. Not that he needed a prompt--the ugly a$$ed scar & the recurring ache were more than enough...The words of his college wrestling coach floated into his head. 'Pain is your friend, Walker...use it to focus your mind.'"
He witnessed a car accident & the dying man told him not to trust anyone in Lucky Shores.
I have now placed all of this author's books on my wish list.

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.
