One Big Beautiful Thing by Marie Flanigan, Kristin Brown

Artist Kate Abernethy is trying to put her life back together after the death of her boyfriend. At first, moving back in with her mother seems like a good way to sort out her finances and re-evaluate her life-instead it proves to be a minefield of doubt and recrimination. Floundering, she pushes herself to take new opportunities so she can rebuild her life and have a second chance at happiness.

My Review: It was hard to place this book in a category, it had bits of romance, bits coming into your own, bits of inspirational. It was a really a beautiful combination of so many things. I really enjoyed how while the main character Kate was in her prime, she was still making decisions and reacting in ways that people might view as immature, but everyone makes those mistakes. I found myself really routing for her and loved how she was able to move forward with help from some odd places. This story doesn't have a lot of action in it and is more of an emotional journey so the pacing was a little slow, but your love for the characters keeps you turning the pages. My Rating: I did enjoy the story though I did find it to be a slow read. I loved the characters and will probably find myself revisiting them. I give this one a rating of Three Paws.

I felt like I was listening to a friend as I was reading this book. Marie did a good job making you feel like you are right there with Kate through her troubles. Another thing I liked was the romance of this book as well as the little mysteries that keep you turning the pages. With the way this book is written you would not know that this is the first book that Marie has written as she writes with like an experienced writer. This book is also full of emotions which makes you connect with the character even more. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a new author to enjoy.
