Francis has been reading On Lucky Shores by Kerry J Donovan
I loved the setting – a small town nestled in the Colorado Rockies. Main character Chet, is finely drawn from his back story that informs his current actions and reactions to his multi-faceted personality – the musician, the martial arts fighter, the drifter, to say nothing of his mysterious knowledge of firefighting and medicine. It takes some time for Chet to come completely into focus – another master stroke of storytelling! A line like, “… focused on the pain and the rain and the water running down the drain.” as Chet observes his surroundings and turns them into a tune captures the reader’s imagination. A mysterious sheriff, a small town doctor who seems anything but and a damsel in distress round out a team of secondary characters who all hit the right notes. Solid writing – an enjoyable read.
