So I shot this video on vacation in a rental home, therefore the lighting is terrible and the sound is echo-ey. My bad.
Oh, and Smokey isn’t with me, because my husband draws the line at taking our cats on vacation with us (sigh). I’m reviewing Terry Fallis’s latest book One Brother Shy, which I really enjoyed. Hell, I like all his books, even though they’re all very similar. I put down his books feeling better than when I picked them up, plus they’re really funny so in my mind that means I’ve had a successful reading experience. Terry’s also a wonderful guy, very active on social media, a publicist’s dream to say the least so I feel good about spreading the word near and far about his books. They also make great gifts, you can give one to your Grandma and not feel weird about it, but your sister or her teenage daughter may also like his writing, all his titles are very universal. There’s so much to love, but if you don’t like endings that come together in a neat little package this book (and his others) may irritate you. If you don’t mind suspending your disbelief for a couple hundred pages, you will enjoy his latest, I promise.
Sounds good, and I don’t mind formulas so long as they’re good ones. As you say, it’s kinda comfortable when you pick up a book knowing exactly what to expect. That’s what I love about both Agatha Christie and Georgette Heyer, and why they’re my major comfort reading.
PS I forgive you re Smokey this time, but please don’t let it happen again… 😉
oh no FictionFan, it happens one more time, but promise I”ll keep these Smokey-less videos to a minimum 🙂
Although the lighting was off in this video, I feel like it was more focused and gave very specific recommendations! I wonder if Smoky is almost more distracting to you when you record because I’m sure your thinking about his behavior? It’s getting better, Anne!
You’re probably right Melanie! I really appreciate the feedback, anything else you can think of just send my way. The video I just recorded last week is in direct sunlight on a dock, so we will see how that goes LOL
I’ll let you know! 😊
I’ve read two of his books, and liked them both. They kind of make me think of “chick-lit” with a male character. I think they’re the kind of books, though, that need to be spaced out a bit, because of their similarities. Do you have a favourite so far?
oh lord, I can’t remember that far back to say which one was my favourite, maybe the first one? But I agree with your ‘chick-lit for guys’ label, that’s perfect!
