About Heavy Weather• Paperback: 408 pages
• Publisher: Sleepy Creek Press; 1 edition (March 10, 2015)
It takes a town to save a child. That town is Beaufort.
Annie Mac’s estranged husband vows that nothing will stop him from getting his baby girl. Not Annie Mac and certainly not that boy of hers.
Only four blocks away, Hannah Morgan lives in comfort with her husband and dog, making pottery and waiting for her best friend to come home. When she discovers the two children cowering in the bushes and their mama left for dead, it doesn’t take her long to rally the sleepy town of Beaufort, NC, and to set her coterie of do-gooders to some extra-strength do-gooding. Add in Clay, a lonely police lieutenant yanked out of his comfort zone and into the heart of this small family, and who knows what will happen?
My Thoughts:Have you ever picked up a book by a new (to you) author and after finishing said book, wonder "Where has this writing angel been all my life?" That was the feeling that I got after finishing "Heavy Weather" by Southern fiction author Normandie Fischer.
This novel has a little of everything for everybody - romance, suspense, close friendship, family drama - and it is written in a style that captivates the reader and hold their attention to the final thrilling end. I started reading around 8 p.m. and the next thing I knew it was 6 a.m. and I was turning the final page! Now that's a page-turner!
I highly recommend "Heavy Weather" as a great summertime read - and I fully intend to go back and pick up Normandie's previous books to enjoy as well!
