"Magic is real."

  • Jan 25, 2012
Rating:

This book contains just about everything: mobsters, gunfights, a flying bus, a talking fox, a telepathic tiger, biker gangs, incompetent hitmen, and, at its core, an old fashioned, if unusual, love story. If all of these items make you wonder about the book, I would encourage you to read it.

There are times of laughter and times of sadness, often at the same time. The characters are quite interesting and the plot, even the somewhat unbelievable parts of it, are greatly entertaining. This is a first time author with a deft touch. Her writing at times rises to the lyrical and touches your heart.

I don't even want to go into the plot, except to say that, if you read it, you will not be disappointed. One can only hope that this author writes another book, and that it lives up to the quality of this one.

About this book

Wiki

A WIDOW HITS THE ROAD TO OUTRUN HER BILLS AND AIDED BY A MOBSTER AND A TIGER, FINDS THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME.

At fifty-eight, Jane wins a facelift and a gym membership in a radio contest. With a tight face that matches her tight body, she is looking forward to many lively years to come. Two years later, she is widowed, broke, and ready to trade her old life as a trauma nurse for a converted tour bus and life on the road. Unbeknownst to Jane, she is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Jane soon meets a couple in an RV park who, after learning she is a licensed pilot, approach her with a tempting offer. Three days later, she is headed into Mexico to do a plane pickup worth thirty thousand dollars. But then she meets her escort, a mobster who hates his job, and everything changes.

Together they are cast into a series of incidents that convince Jane that more than one person wants her dead.

In this zany dark comedy of adventure and strange events, the runaway widow and the unfulfilled gangster must battle dangerous criminals and weird predicaments in order to win a second chance at life-which will only happen if magic is real.
