A Phone Tree Book Review
About the Book:
“All Violet can think about is how to make sure she has a date for her little sister’s wedding. Online dating, speed dating, blind dates. . .she doesn’t care what it takes. And when that doesn’t work, she hires a matchmaker, only to discover that her “match” is her old college classmate. Violet didn’t like Jackson then and she sure doesn’t like him now. But Jackson has a plan: he’ll be her “boyfriend” at the wedding if Violet will be his “girlfriend” for his high school reunion. There’s just one small hitch—they still can’t stand each other!” – Amazon.com
This was a beautifully written book. The characters were real and imperfect and redeemable. I found myself cheering for Violet and Jackson, and even the lovable dog. I loved the theme of leaving fear behind and walking toward personal freedom. Every character, save one (Violet’s sister), came to a point of understanding related to this. It was very evident. I also really liked how the concept of family/community was linked together through each character’s story. As far as I’m concerned, this is a keeper. Bravo!
