Someone else's love story - a novel well-worth taking a look at

WATKINS GLEN, New York - Someone else's love story, a novel by Joshilyn Jackson, says on its cover "You won't be able to put it down."

Damn... it was true. Too true!

After a couple of marathon days, reading in between other projects (including writing the sequel to The Fracking War) I rammed through this book, finishing it last night with a contented sigh.

It's quite a tale, twisting and turning with a lot of surprises. A lot. And the surprises come up fast in the copy. Forget foreshadowing. And it works.

There's crime, romance, familial discord/dysfunction, and a handful of other dramatic issues that keep you turning the pages one right after another. Thank God there are chapter breaks in the book or I never would have been able to stop.

Jackson uses different character points of view to tell the story, mostly through two main characters. One of the characters has an adorable son. He's a heart breaker.

But what happens to all these characters you will have to read for yourself.

Someone else's love story is highly recommended reading. Highly! And it's even available at the Watkins Glen Public Library.
