eBook Review: A Dance with Bogie and Bacall by KevaD
Radio DJ Scott Kincaid isn’t particularly enamoured with his job, or the radio station he works for. It’s just a way to pay the bills for him. That is, until his first caller one evening is a lady who died forty-nine years ago. Of course, he doesn’t realise this at the time and inadvertently offends the woman in question’s granddaughter, who now seriously has it in for him.
Things grow more complicated as it becomes clear to Scott that Maureen Johnson, a woman who died in a fire forty-nine years ago has an interest in him. He can’t figure out what the ghost wants with him. But as he starts to dig deeper into her story and the others involved in it, he uncovers a tragedy which, although on a local scale, makes it no less heartbreaking. Add in Maureen’s feisty granddaughter and you have a recipe for fireworks!
I don’t want to say too much more because I don’t want to give away the plot, but what I will say is: wow. This book completely blew me away. Right from the very beginning I was intrigued. This is a truly beautiful and emotional love story which had me sniffling into a tissue on more than one occasion. Because of the characters and timescales involved, it could have been a complex book to follow, but it wasn’t. It flowed really well and I whizzed through it, desperate to reach the resolution and yet, at the same time, not wanting it to end!
Well written, brilliantly put together and with a stunning plot, A Dance with Bogie and Bacall is a read any romance lover shouldn’t miss out on. Gorgeous.
