Finding Forever Book Review

finding forever book review @duffythewriter

I look at his face, the face of the man who holds my heart, my forever, only his heart has stopped beating….

Finding Forever follows the aftermath of a wedding gone tragically wrong.  Liz and Charles had been married a matter of hours and were sailing off to start their honeymoon when something terrible happened onboard. Liz, the young bride, wakes up on a deserted beach, she is injured, dehydrated and clinging to a dead husband.  Blinking out into the hot sun, she sees a boat and thinks she will be saved. 

The boat that saves her is full of pirates!  Are they out to help her, or harm her? What are pirates doing in these seas anyway?

What Did I Think Of Finding Forever?

Finding Forever is the first piece of published fiction written by Irish author Amanda J. Evans, and for a first novella, it’s not half bad.

The drama starts immediately as the reader is thrown right into the moment Liz wakes up on the beach, and the twists and turns come at a frenetic rate there on in. However, I did find some of the plot a little too conveniently tied up.  Those that read my blog know that I like to be kept waiting for the answers, but I think this was a considered approach by the author to keep the story moving and fit everything tightly into this romance and suspense packed novella.

It’s a nice easy read, and I read it beginning to end in one evening.  I recommend it to anyone who loves a bit of suspense and a good old love story who is looking for something to read on their travels.  The story was enjoyable and a great way to switch off for a couple of hours!

Chick lit fans will love Finding Forever.

Finding Forever Book Jacket

A woman desperately searching for her forever….
Liz Parker thought she’d found her forever the moment she said “I do,” but fate had other ideas. Waking up with a tattered wedding dress and her dead husband in her arms was not the way she planned her honeymoon. Distraught, she promised she would follow him. Death wasn’t taking forever away from her. Of course, she hadn’t planned on being rescued by pirates either, or the fact that Charles’ body would be left to rot on the beach.

Two lives collide…
When Liz meets John, he becomes her only hope, her chance to bring Charles’ body home, but there’s something more. Why does he look at her with such pity? Why does he agree to help her when no one else will? Why won’t anyone believe that Charles exists?

Is Liz going mad?

Find out in Finding Forever the debut novella from Amanda J Evans. A blend of a psychological thriller mixed with romance and unexpected twists. Finding Forever will prove to you that when you believe in love, anything is possible.
