Part of our reasoning to do this is to bring more attention to the Indie authors we love to read. With so many books out there now it's hard to figure out what is a good, well-written book...or not. Keep in mind, these are our opinions, things we like to read.
Today's offering is A CHANGE IN TIDE by Freya Barker. Here's the blurb:
What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black?
For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay.
A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. Away from the public eye, he adjust to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.
I got this book on a Free Amazon promo and thought it looked interesting. Plus I loved the cover. But I found it to be written in first person present, not my favorite writing style. That said, I pushed through because the story idea had a lot of merit. I'm so glad I did. It was a remarkably heartfelt and engaging tale about a woman with severe agoraphobia and a man trying to regroup after living in the limelight. They're both wounded in their own ways, but he needs her stillness and she needs his life. Add to a stalker-ex, the paparazzi, and a new baby, and life gets pretty messy pretty quick. I recommend this tale for those who love second-chance-at-life stories.
