GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT . . .
I waited until the night he tried to kill me.
Waking up in the hospital I was banged and battered, but I wasn’t broken. The wreck had been fatal but miraculously I had been spared with only bumps and bruises. He wanted to kill me. He said so as he hit me then dragged me out and threw me into the truck.
Now he was dead.
He was dead and I was free.
AND NEW BEGINNINGS ARE OFTEN DISGUISED AS PAINFUL ENDINGS (Lau Tzu) . . .
There was no way this ending could begin anything good for me.
The moment it took me to get to her seemed an eternity. As I approached I could feel myself losing every part of me that was ever good or happy. The drunk who hit her never even slowed down as he plowed through the intersection, running the red light and stealing my life.
HOW DO YOU FIND STRENGTH TO CONTINUE WITH A LIFE THAT HAS DEALT SUCH PAIN. YOU NEVER KNOW HOW STRONG YOU ARE UNTIL BEING STRONG IS THE ONLY CHOICE YOU HAVE.
Shelby Gayle finds a new life and friends in Independence, Utah. I am sure that Independence is the town name in order to represent Shelby’s new found independence! I thought Shelby and her friends MJ and Jimbo to be well developed, eclectic characters that one might find in a small town. I found love interest, Wolf Garrison, to be a bit one-dimensional and friendly prodigal son to be enigmatic. Keith was such a mystery to me, that I considered him a potential antagonist when trying to figure out who was behind the threats. Wolf speech reminded me of a film noir gumshoe combined with a 21st century hot, alpha male. He is chivalrous and protective, but he is definitely not a bad boy regardless of the motorcycle he rides.
The plot was fast-paced and I enjoyed the suspenseful build-up in the story line, however, that build-up culminated with a whimper not a bang. I would have appreciated a more elaborate resolution to the threat in the storyline. The quick and tidy wrap up left me wanting.
Overall, Strong is a good poolside/beach read—an afternoon escape—and Kendal Waller is an author to keep your eye on!
