Jamie, your prose and pacing are impeccable. Not a misplaced comma, a wrong word, info are doled out in precise, even amounts. Technically speaking, RH is perfect. It’s a relief for weary eyes ❤
When Alexander contacted me and asked me to review River Queens, my first reaction was ‘Uh. But I don’t know anything about boats!’. No, that’s a lie. My first reaction was ‘Yay, new book!’, the blink-blink omg how am I supposed to review this one when I know, like, zilch about boats? came next. 320 pages and some time later, I’m glad I didn’t let that detail put a damper on my enthusiasm. RQ is a pretty cool memoir 😀
February 4, 2003, promises to be a typical day for Olivia Ross—a greeting card writer whose passion project is a screenplay of her own. But after she and a handsome actor have a magical meet-cute in a coffee shop, they make a spontaneous pact: in ten years, after they’ve found the success they’re just sure they’re going to achieve, they’ll return to the coffeehouse to partner up and make a film together. The only problem? Olivia neglected to get the stranger’s name. But she doesn’t forget his face—or the date.
What a lovely little book! I chose TP because I’m a plant parent too, a hobby I picked up from my mom: her place is chock full of them, bought and rescued both - don’t ask - and every once in a while she knocks on my door with a grin and a new leafy baby.
