Review by Lynn Reynolds
J.J. Shultz and her sister Lori are taking her cat to a trade show. After they check-in and settle into their room, Tawna starts to set things up for you. The sisters go to meet a man at a bar to discuss business.
Each sister becomes the first person and you won’t get confused because our author lets you know at the beginning of the chapter who is speaking to the reader. It didn’t take many pages before I decided that Lori seems to be the flighty sister and J.J. seems to be the one that’s more levelheaded.
This is an interactive book where the reader gets to choose how the story is going to unfold – you get to create the story depending on your choices. In one choice, Lori is a take-charge kind of woman who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it. Then it gets even better because you get another choice – continue on your current path or go back and try the other story. Me – I continued on because I was curious to see what was going to happen next.
Tawna may have created a mystery but she has you laughing at the same time. My next choice was interesting – do I want to do the expected or the unexpected? I think I’ll go with the unexpected. Then I turn around and I’m given another choice – oh no! Then I did the unthinkable and touched the screen by accident. It then moved the page forward. But all was not lost because I got a warning about not making a choice – now how many books do you have that can do all that?
And then I got to the end. I’m not going to tell you any more about the path I took just so you can experience it for yourself. The great thing about the ending is that it’s not over until the reader feels it’s over. You can go back to the beginning and choose a different path and get a totally different story.
This is a book you will want to read over and over. And if you are like me, you will fall in love with the Shultz sisters. If you haven’t read Tawna’s work before, you may find that you want to read some more. For example, you may want to go and read her Getting Dumped books. And then we can look forward to what she may have in store for us next.
