All of the characters in this book were superbly developed, artfully cast in their rolls and masterfully woven together. One thing I appreciate about Ms. Lapekes' writing is how down to earth it is - it's like watching in the minds eye a piece of real life - that is if we slow down enough to see it happen. This book has some good comical elements as well as some more serious topics that were handled in a very skillful manner.
If I had paid $10 instead of $1 for this book, it would have been worth it! Great job Lori!
Turns out this novel is truly entertaining. Keri, the protagonist, is known as a "man eater," yet, perhaps implausibly, she has genuine empathy for her victims. Some of the scenes, such as one of the trips to L.A., are truly moving.
Predictably, this story involves a choice between two lovers. The problems in Keri's love life, however, are complicated by her inability to reconcile the persona she projects to the outside world with her actual personality. The story never drags, and I had trouble setting this book down.
If I have one quibble, it is that the author does not do enough with the story's setting, i.e., West Michigan. I can only hope that her next book more fully integrates the unique landscape and culture of this region into her narrative.
I heartily recommend this novel to everyone, even to skeptics like me.
