Linda L. Picl, Romance Author
My guest today is Linda L. Picl, author of Next Time Love Comes and her latest contemporary romance Solitary Dreamer.  I had the pleasure of reading Solitary Dreamer and applaud Linda's ability to populate her story with a variety of characters that run the gauntlet from caring to despicable.    

Five sentences about Solitary Dreamer .

Solitary Dreamer is about Carrie Lawson.  She’s a young woman with a lot in her past. Carrie wants to get away from it all by eventually having a writing career. Lack of money and having to put up with a husband who’s the laughing stock of the town give her a lot to contend with.Thank goodness for guys like Logan Franks.

My Review of Solitary Dreamer

Carrie Lawson deserves more than her no-good husband and two-timing mother, but she’s unsure how to move beyond her current situation until she’s shocked into reality.  Thank goodness a good friend helps her make a life-changing decision and thank goodness Carrie is strong enough to handle all that life throws at her.  When Logan Franks enters her life, she at least has hope.  And sometimes hope is all there is.    ‘Ehā Hoku (4 stars)
