Julia’s Journey: A Review

After reading the first book of the series, Coming Home Again, and reviewing it, the author contacted me and asked if I would proofread the sequel. I was more than happy to do it for her and I’m glad I had the opportunity. I’m excited to announce that today Julia’s Journey is now available on Amazon! To get you a little more interested, here’s a review about the book. Well, after the description of the book.

About the Book

Are you ready for an adventure? Well, to be honest, Julia Thorton wasn’t ready either! When she finds herself kidnapped, Julia holds on for dear life as an unexpected journey turns her life upside down on a long, winding road of craziness. Julia and her partner in crime, Greyson Stone, set out into the unknown and discover more than either was prepared for…
Haunted woods where scarecrows don’t care who they chase, mugshots from an unexpected arrest, a rocking Bleu Streak concert, great food and abundant wisdom being dished out at a little café with a familiar name—Lulu’s Café, flounder gigging with a toothless old man, and a night on the town with a zombie are just a few stops along the way of this wacky journey.
Can Julia and Greyson make it to the end of the road trip in one piece? Here’s hoping you’ll find out soon.

Characters: 1/1

I fell in love with Greyson the moment he showed up in book one. That might be a little strong, but I loved his character. Despite the culture he lived with in the modeling world, he still wanted the best for himself and others. Now in this book, he’s even more so. Despite his attraction to Julia, he restrains himself and shows great self-control. I found this very admirable. Julia is harder to connect with, but not because she’s poorly written. Her character is well developed and well-written. I had a hard time connecting with her because she is basically the total opposite of me.

Dialogue: .75/1

The dialogue was hilarious, scary, funny, sad, sobering, and any other emotion you can come up with. There were a couple times that sounded slightly forced, but nothing that detracts too much.

Plot/storyline: 1/1

Creative. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book like this one. Although I personally have issues with a man and a woman living together before they are married, even if they aren’t staying in the same room, T.I. Lowe made it work and didn’t even make me too uncomfortable most of the time. Julia has some major issues that made the book…interesting a few times.

Overall writing quality: 1/1

Very well done. Overall, the writing was superb and I’m kind of jealous how easy she makes it look. I know it isn’t that easy, but T.I. Lowe makes it look easy.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

I started reading this and had to put it down. When I came back to it a day or two later, I didn’t put it down until I finished it. Tell you anything? 😉

Conclusion: 4.75/5

As with Coming Home Again, this book deals with some tough issues that aren’t glossed over, but they are not described in great detail either, so read with caution. I’m looking forward to reading the third book about Savannah and Julia’s brother.
