OPEN HOUSE...TC MATSON
I "discovered" TC Matson, via Anne Mercier (who has never steered me wrong), and once I read TC's "The Fighter Series," she immediately moved into my Top 5 authors, so, I was having anxiety waiting for Open House....And even though this book was a surprise and a completely different type of book from her....the wait was SO worth it!!!
If you read her "The Fighter Series," you obviously know the woman can write, but if you are expecting a book, anything like those books, you aren't going to be disappointed, but you are going to be shocked and surprised....but in the VERY BEST of ways....
I want to relay the entire story to you, and I promise, if I did, you'd still buy it to read it for yourself....But I don't want to spoil this gem, for what I think is a great beginning to a different side of TC Matson...This book is intense and real and heartbreaking and the dialogue (although it is written in a single POV) shows us what's inside the heads of all 3 main characters, and we understand why each one is making the decisions they are making.....In my opinion, there are two Heroes and one heroine in this book, and one of the weird parts to me is, although I wasn't always happy with him, I never really saw what is probably suppose to be the "bad guy" Hero, as a "bad guy" at all, (I'd have to spoil the book for you to explain why I feel this way!!), but it takes a genius author to make that happen...The heroine was smart, strong, lovable, a good mother, and it wasn't hard to imagine more than one man in love with her, but, I was happy to see she NEVER CHEATED....and trust me, that couldn't have been easy, but the way TC wrote her part, it was neither surprising nor unbelievable....The second Hero, with whom I instantly fell in love was fantastic, although, one of the two times I actually teared up, cursed TC Matson and threw my kindle involved him and the heroine near the end, because he was breaking both of their hearts while doing what he believed was the right thing to do for both of them and their hearts ...If I keep going, I'm going to tell you about the book all of the way to the end, and you deserve to read it yourself.....You will be sucked in from the first page until the very last.....To me, this book opened a new chapter in TC Matson's writing, and I can hardly wait to see what she has in store for us next....I really think Brian needs his own book!!! Thanks, TC Matson, for another good one!!!
