Debut author, River Wild, introduces us to his first novel, a sweet romance, The Artist’s Special Touch:
On the last day of school, young Jackson Henderson makes a discovery that will forever change his life. Hannah Davis is trying to start fresh in a new town after suffering a terrible loss.
A chance meeting on a very special night brings these two together into a swirling romance that takes them both by storm. As their love grows, they make a promise to each other to always find a way to be together no matter what happens.
When tragedy strikes, can they keep that promise?
This contemporary romance really strikes a chord with me. I love the setting of Folly Island, South Carolina, on the coast near Charleston. It reminds me of some of the beaches in Oregon.
I so appreciated this tale of young love and transcendent love, they are two different things. There is a great deal I really enjoyed about this story, the pacing, dialogue, and action stand out and are well balanced. The writing appears simple, but is actually quite rich, and I found myself deeply involved in the story, over and over again. The settings were perfectly staged, the descriptions seemed quite alive in my mind. The heart-touching ending brought more than a couple of tears to my eyes.
I give this debut novel a score of 4.8 stars; the score would have been higher except for the handful of spelling and punctuation issues which have been corrected. So, your reading experience will be all the smoother.
