Tangles was a great 5 star read. Once I started I didn’t want to put it down. We meet Logan and his family in the beginning, he is a great father that loves his children. He is also someone that when he sets his mind to it he is determined to accomplish his goals. Logan started to wonder what was going on with his mom when he was on the phone with his dad, she was asking strange questions but his dad assured him she was fine. During a visit he knew his mom behavior was odd and she injured his son. Logan finally gets his father to share what is wrong with his mother, Alzheimers. When Logan’s father passes he ends up caring for his mother.This is definitely not an easy task and he ends up hiring a nursing service to help him. When he discovers some journals that his mother wrote he ends up with lots of questions and discovers secrets that his mother had, secrets that make him angry and confused. Will he be able to find someone that can help put the pieces together and give him the answers he’s looking for? Be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster. My heart went out to Logan, having a friend who’s family went through Alzeimers with her mother this felt like it hit home. Sharleen Scott has done a great job with her writing and you feel like your right there with Logan. If you're looking for a great read, I highly suggest this one. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Tangles is a heart breaking story by Sharleen Scott. I had read her Caught series before picking up Tangles and even though the subject matter is so different, still you could feel the deep love for human relationships that the writer has and that I fell in love with when reading the Caught series. The writer has tackled a sensitive subject matter with Tangles and what makes it even more remarkable and person is the fact that she wrote it while her own family was trying to come to terms and find their way with the diagnoses of Alzheimer themselves. Tangles gives us the story of Logan McKinnon and his mother Louis who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s when she was in her late sixties… The journey that Logan gets on, the loss of his father who took care of his mother for years before he passes, the way how “the plaques and tangles win …” Logan finds his mother’s secret journals and that takes him on another journey that shakes him to his core and he needs to find his way to how to reconcile what he discovers and what he has known all his life AND he has no one to ask his questions as his dad is gone and his mother is also … gone … as she used to be … I know that you will not regret picking up Tangles, simply be prepared to having your heart strings pulled so hard that you need a box of tissues at hand!
