Overview

Finding Fisher is a short novel about love, lies, loyalty and what it means to be truly alive.

Franklin Smith was the perfect fiancé. He was at the top of our class at Stanford and had been recently accepted to Harvard Law. But Spring Break our senior year of college changed everything. He went back home to New Jersey and never returned. At his funeral I discovered a guy I never knew. His secret past. And a twin brother, Fisher, I didn’t know existed.

Author’s Note: When I learned about the tragic death of cover model Josh Nicholson and saw the wonderful photos that Eric McKinney of 6:12 Photography had taken of Josh I just knew I had to write a book in his memory. This is the novel that Joshua Scott Nicholson inspired.

A portion of the profits from the cover and book sales will be donated to Joining Hearts, Inc., a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing support to people living with HIV and AIDS in Atlanta, in memory of Josh.

Anyone who has every been treated to the writing styles of Dakota Madison, understands that they are in for a real treat when they pick up any of her novels. Finding Fisher did not disappoint when I first opened the book. It is definitely unlike any of Madison's other novels, but it was surprisingly full of heartache, betrayal, loss and moving forward. Madison's talent and extreme capabilities of being able to connect with her readers allow her to write novels that will captivate you and leave you wanting more. Finding Fisher is about moving on after heartache, loss and betrayal and accepting yourself. Madison does a great job of creating a story that will leave you asking yourself some questions and questioning the motives of the characters. At times I found myself shaking my head, but the passion and depth of the characters are so well written, it is extremely hard not to enjoy. Great read!

Finding Fisher by Dakota Madison I started reading Dakota Madison when I reviewed Fire on Ice books. She is still enjoyable. Her writing was clear and precise. I could see every place and person perfectly. I would love to visit Old Town and meet all these people. I want to go to the deli and eat.  This is a sweet story to read, it made me cry a few times.  Grab the book, wine and tissues then get comfy it’s a one sitting type of book.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Book, and goes by very quick as you don't want to put the book down. Chloe goes on a journey to find love again after a huge disaster with her fiancé, when he doesn't return after his trip, so she goes to find answers and what she finds is crazy, but in the midst she falls for another man, and learns about her self along the way. This is a must read. Dakota did a great job writing the book, with the awesome characters, and the plot of the story.

This was a much quicker read than I anticipated. I couldn't seem to put it down. Chloe's world is blown to pieces when her fiance' Franklin never returns from spring break. The way she learns of his passing is not even close to typical. She does a little digging and decides to travel to his home town. What she finds there turns her world more upside down - if that's even possible. Franklin was living a lie with Chloe as she soon discovers when she meets Fisher - Franklin's twin. Fisher answers her questions and is a strong support for Chloe. Chloe finds herself doing so many things that are completely out of character for her and is quickly falling for Fisher. This is not your typical romance, and I wasn't sure I wanted to read this originally because of the death and the attraction to the brother. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to, and I highly recommend it. This is about Chloe finding herself and growing. It's about doing things you never thought that you could. It's sharing strengths and weaknesses and becoming a better person in the end - learning there are people who you can depend on and want to see you succeed. I felt so good when I finished this book and think you should take the time to read it too. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Dakota Madison once again takes what appears to be a straight forward love story and gives it a twist that keeps you thoroughly engaged and turning the pages. I really enjoyed watching Chloe find herself as she begins to piece together the truth about her now deceased fiancé. As she learns more and more about the life Franklin left behind, she also uncovers strengths in herself as she begins to realize that her pursuit of the “perfect life” that she has mapped out may not be where she finds happiness. Fisher was just an honest to goodness good guy who was so much more than Chloe gave him credit for. It was fun watching him take Chloe by surprise as she watches him at work, sees him take care of his nephew, and witnesses the respect that he receives from his friends. I really loved watching him be there for Chloe, even when everyone seemed to blame her for what happened to Franklin. Fisher always seemed to know just what to say and do to comfort her, while also pushing her to step out of her comfort zone. He was smart, sweet, and was exactly what Chloe needed. This book had everything I've come to expect from Dakota Madison – a nice love story with a sweet hero that also had a bit of angst and a few twists…but guaranteed to leave you smiling at the end. I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
