This is supposed to be the first book of a trilogy. I hope that the author can get away from the drawn-out sexual business and tackle the plot. I know that sex sells, but this writer seems to have enough skill to sell her work without so much of it. I would have given it 4 stars, otherwise.
I love Women's Contemporary Fiction, especially when authors such as Ms. Collins write the spectrum of emotions based upon life's real experiences. Often this genre is thought of as "Happily Ever After," and nothing more. Set Me Free has some ridiculously funny moments, as well as some heart wrenching ones. The only bad thing about books like these is that they end... but in this case it doesn't. Set Me Free is book one in The Evans Trilogy. Yay!!
We meet Charlotte Evans as she arrives back in Australia after a trip to Rome with her mother. Unlucky in love, once again, she uses travel as a way to escape and heal. No sooner does she land than she meets the oh-so-handsome Craig Carmichael. Things are looking up for the two of them, until they find out they are on opposite sides of a business deal.
Charlotte and Craig have depth of character and over the course of the book continue to captivate the other as their pasts are revealed. Life happens to everyone, and while Charlotte and Craig have their hands full of rescuing everyone around them, they take a little time to rescue themselves.
A very well crafted book. Open My Eyes, book two in The Evans Trilogy is available and a must read as well.
REVIEWED FOR ROUND TABLE BOOK REVIEWS
Set Me Free by Jennifer Collins is a lovely, evocative, visual story. It unfolds slowly as we get to know the characters. And, there are a lot of characters. Each one is uniquely described and playing an important role in the story. Remove one character and the story would not tell itself. It would lose the sense of community and fit that is an integral part of the beauty of the telling.
Emily, the talented, witty, easy-going painter
Charlotte, the uptight, world traveller, caretaker and connector
Craig, the insightful developer, crafty yet moral businessman still living in his father’s shadow
Ben, the savvy player and barista extraordinaire
Geoff, the selfish oaf, lawyer and husband
And that is not even all of them…
The story is also filled with gorgeous descriptions of place. Ms. Collins definitely has a knack for seeing the beauty in ordinary places. The descriptions are so vivid that when I finished, I felt I had taken a holiday to Australia to stay with a friend and become a part of the community during my stay.
I highly recommend Set Me Free for the real story, real characters and lovely place it creates.
I look forward to reading more of this series and this author in general
