REVIEW: Intriguing, Fascinating and Suspenseful are what comes to mind when I think of my experience with Kerry Anne King’s New novel Other People’s Things. I enjoyed my time with these characters.
I found the premise of this book Intriguing. Nicole has a calling and a behavior she calls the Object Relocation Program. Most people thinks she steals things but the things call out to her to be moved. She moves them where they want to be. Her family and friends don’t understand. Heck, she doesn’t understand! It is beyond her control. Good and bad comes from her gift.
The gift was fascinating to me and kept me reading. I wanted more! Then came the Suspense. The best part of the book. What is up with the soon to be ex-husband? Why doesn’t her family see what’s going on? What about the crazy boss lady? Oh and what about her psychologist? Then what happens with Hawk? Umm…you’re going to have to read the book to get those answers.
I hope I’ve peaked your interest. This was a fun book that also kept me on edge. You must think about picking up a copy for yourself. I think you will be intrigued and fascinated like I was.
I received a complimentary copy of this book #OtherPeople’sThings from #Netgalley and #LakeUnionPublishing. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
SYNOPSIS: From the Amazon Charts bestselling author of Whisper Me This comes a witty, magical story about improbable connections, difficult gifts, and the unexpected events that heal us and bring us together.
Jailbird. Klepto. Spectacular failure to launch. Nicole Wood’s sticky fingers have earned her many names, but it’s not that she’s stealing—some objects just need to be moved elsewhere, and the universe has chosen her to do it. Still, being a relocator of objects isn’t easy. With her marriage on the rocks, no real-world skills, and the threat of prison hanging over her head, Nicole is determined to change her ways.
Things seem to be looking up, thanks to a godsent job with her sister’s housecleaning business—until she encounters a seemingly harmless paperback that insists on moving from one client’s home to another’s. Nicole hopes no one will notice, but the action stirs up long-hidden secrets and triggers a series of fateful events that threatens to destroy the life she’s creating and hurt those closest to her. She’ll need to embrace her unwieldy gift and take a chance on love in order to unravel the mystery and fix what’s gone wrong.
