A Curve in the Road Reviews
It was nice to read a book set in Nova Scotia and I was in need of the predictability I've come to expect when I slip into Chick Lit territory. Yes there is a middle aged woman who's life is changed dramatically one stormy night. Yes there is a dog, a golden retriever/ball of love and yes there is a son to protect yet allow to become the good man she knows he will become.
I did think the bad things that happened to Abbie got piled on rather thick but have to say much like a predictable ...more
I can confess without guilt that the cover of this book sucked me in, and when i read what it was about i was even more interested!
I love a good family story. Especially if it is about someone tries that starts new after something bad happens!
This book promised to be a great one for me!
It sadly wasn't.
The writing didn't work that great for me, since it sometimes felt very stilted and at the next moment as if it was rushing through the plot.
The plot itself wasn't that great for me either.

A deeply stirring, emotional story of loss, grief, and betrayal that carries the reader on a journey filled with twists and secrets toward an uplifting destination where healing is found in new beginnings. You’ll root for Abbie on every step of her journey, and fall in love with her sweet dog, Winston. Highly recommended.
Cute, but predictable. Felt the most invested in the dog.
I listened to A CURVE IN THE ROAD and enjoyed the narration. The beginning really got me interested, but the plot became sluggish in the middle of the book.

I think I kept expecting a big reveal which did sort of happened at the end and all turned into a great big happy ending. If you like your stories to turn out happily ever after then this book i ...more
Abbie is living the life of a fairytale, she loves the life that she is in. If anything can be anymore perfect than a daunting husband and son, she still has yet to found it. However her life falls apart that leaves her in a dire situation and life life becomes even more complicated after that unforgettable night.
Honestly this book was really hard to rate because I really loved the story. However, I felt that it was too rushed, too many loopholes was not adding up. For instance it will have hin ...more
This was a book that grabbed you into the story from the very beginning! I love books that start like that. And this one just kept going, twisting my emotions, page by page.
You never know when life is going to throw a big curve your way. And the characters in this book went through so much. Grief, sadness, shock, secrets, happiness, forgiveness...this book had it all. And the author definitely had me not wanting to put the book down.
I've heard so many good things about this author and her books ...more
What is up these days with using first person? Anyone can write in first person. I,I. Me,me. No character development. No other points of view. Boring. It’s like an essay. If books like this are now “Best Sellers” then we are truly in trouble.
