I bought this book recently and it was not disappointing! The author creates a wonderful story with in-depth characters that you feel you know personally. The story was fast paced, full of adventure and heart racing scenes. I literally couldn't put the book down, carrying it around wherever I went. I hated that the story had to end! Loved it!

I didn't know what to expect with this story, especially after seeing the cover, but it was an amazing story. This story made me laugh and it definitely made me cry. I felt for the woman who took over Casey's life, and wanted to cheer her on throughout.
I was disappointed that the author didn't have the main character check what had happened to her former self before she became "Casey", but that may have been because she was emotionally finished with her old life. I'm not sure, but that's a very minor issue.
Other than that one thing with the story, I absolutely LOVED it. It was a story I wasn't able to put down and finished it all in the same day. Liza O'Connor will definitely be on my list of authors to watch!

Saving Casey is a excellent book with a fast paced plot and in-depth characters. It isn't just for young adults; I am in my sixties and enjoyed the plot and the interesting characters very much. The author makes you feel like you know these characters and, as a result, you don't want to stop reading. You will laugh, cry, and feel a range of emotions as you immerse yourself in the world of Saving Casey.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The "reincarnation"ish concept may not be a new one, but this was told excellently. It wasn't t just about someone who died and took over someone else's body, who had also just died, and got one big do-over; the "new" Cass was able to relate to the life and death of "old Casey", and was able to make things happen that should have, long before.

I enjoyed meeting the characters. Casey/Cass was totally relatable, as the author did a very good job building the character, and making you not only like her, but care for her and her situations. Her father was someone I came to like, once I found his motives to be pure; but the reason for the previous bad relationship was never brought to light. The reader THOUGHT they understood, until that was revealed to be "not as it appeared". But it didn't detract enough to be an issue. Her mother was one I would have loved to slap some sense into, which says that the author created a believable, definitely unlikeable character.

There were two other strong characters, who both caused their own heartache, to Cass....and me. Both were well developed and likeable...AND unlikeable at times. Those kinds of emotions are true to reality, which I think adds to the depth of a book.

I don't really care for romance, but this book held just a whisper of it, and it played out without making me want to gag (although a little too "spelled out" at tim4s). There was humor, although it was dark, but it fit the circumstances, and I appreciated it. I liked the storyline; it's not one that has been worn out from overuse, and it was a refreshing change for me.

I would happily recommend this book.

When elderly Cass learns she has only a short time to live, she decides to end her life peacefully with her dog at her side. Unfortunately, she doesn't end up in heaven but in the body of 17 year old, Casey who has tried to stay strong for so long. Cass sets out to make things right and with her wisdom she is given a second chance at happiness. And it's one that honors Casey's strong fight.

Ms. O'Connor writes stories with wit and engaging characters. I am a fan of her stories for their off-beat characters where anything happens. I loved how Cass was more matter-of-fact with her solving of Casey's problems. Already all the things that Casey had tried only made things worse...and we come to learn that it may have been a murder (rather than a suicide). It's like you can't see the forest for the trees and in this story Cass is able to see things that Casey and those who love her couldn't!

And for those who thought that Miss Cass didn't get her own reward... phew! She does... after all, who wouldn't love a chance to go back and live life again knowing all that you know! Just imagine getting another chance to find love and happiness! I believe that's a big reward... and in receiving, she made so many people around Casey happy....

Joy, too, of course, and Redemption, but the title block wasn't large enough.

When I started reading Saving Casey, I wondered if Ms O'Connor had given too much away in the publicity material she (and friends) have published. Some of the things I thought could have been revealed to good effect when reading the story were already known.

Not to worry! There are twists and turns aplenty. If you're like me, some will be 'Oh, yeah, of course,' and some will be 'Wow! Just, wow!' All were welcome and completely fit the plot.

There are a few questions I wanted answered but were not, but none that detracted from the warm feeling of satisfaction when I hit the 100% mark. I read Saving Casey on my Kindle, and opened it using Kindle for Mac. Aside from a few typos that didn't bother me, there were no issues with either. Of course, the cover art looked better on the color display of my desktop. My perennial gripe: no tale of contents, but then, fiction isn't meant to be skipped hither and yon, so that's not a big deal either.

I categorize this as speculative fiction, as a result of the inciting incident. The rest of the book is well grounded as a YA and adult romance with thriller elements to spice the brew.

I highly recommend Saving Casey to anyone looking for an exciting story incorporating renewal; romance, lost and found, and opportunities, also lost and found. And I strongly suggest watching out for Ms O'Connor's next offering.
