November Road by Lou Berney

November Road by Lou Berney

HAPPIEST publication day to this wonderful read by Lou Berney!! πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

So many thanks to @williammorrowbooksfor sending me along this copy, this read stole my heart right out from under me. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

Synopsis: When President Kennedy was assassinated, everyone felt the reverberations, including Frank & Charlotte, whose lives come crashing together when they meet at a roadside motel and realize they are each other’s best hope in running away from their pasts and for their lives. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

This book is truly a story - one that I fell completely into, and enjoyed every single page of. I’ve said this before, but I really love a story that has actual historical events woven in, so a story happening in the shadow of Kennedy’s assassination had me fully invested in where Frank and Charlotte were headed. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

I loved that there was a piece of mystery to this one, with a little love story sprinkled in, topped with some classic character drama. Lou Berney winds all of this together effortlessly, while also writing Frank and Charlotte as complex, flawed and wonderfully human characters. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

This feels like one of those books that I could write pages and pages about, dissecting the characters, their decisions and how the plot plays out, but on the other hand, it also feels like one of those books whose magic lies in the unknown of the pages. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

As a book blogger I have been working hard to pull back for my reviews, as I don’t want to reveal so much that the readers journey is spoiled before they even get past the second chapter. Some books are truly just meant to be enjoyed with little preamble, and this is one of those books for me. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

Which is all to say this is a must read that should be on your autumn #tbr - it makes for cozy reading. πŸ‚πŸ‚πŸ‚

Happy Tuesday!!! πŸ‚
