Awesome job David....keep up the good work
I don't think Shady Place was meant to be this dark and serious detective book, so don't expect a lot of twist and turns and alley ways, to me it was fairly predictable, but the ride to the end was what I adored about the book, I found a lot of it hilarious. The book is straight forward, humorous and keeps you wanting to read more of it. Great Job!
The story is about life transitions and settling into a new community, all aspects of life we can relate too: meeting people, making friends and assimilating. Some transitions are easier than others, which is what the main character, James Phillips, experiences. A retired police officer retiring to Florida, dealing with the loss of his wife, over involved daughters and life changes later in life. As he enters his new life, the people he encounters, some from a former time, throws his peaceful retirement into chaos. In the end, where he did not want to be is where he is meant to be.
