What I thought about When Life Happened

There’s many  I love about Jewel E Ann’s writing -- her quirky characters,her intricately woven plots, the humor and how she puts it all together on the page.  Her words worm their  way into a place in my head that really does it for me.

Like most of Jewel E. Ann’s books, it’s impossible to write a review without revealing a spoiler because it’s all spoiler with one building on another, so I’ll just say that if you aren’t reading this author you should be.

In When Life Happened Parker deals with many life lessons, some of them not so easy to resolve. It's often a bumpy ride between point A and B on the road to a HEA, and Parker certainly experiences her share of the challenges in When Life Happened. If you've read the blurb you can guess what some of those challenges are.  I liked that the story pushed some buttons and had the potential to make the reader uncomfortable because that's where the good stuff happens. It's never quite as black and white as you might think from a distance.

It’s another winner from Jewel E. Ann. I like the chances she takes with her stories, and she takes some chances with this one. You might not like them, but they make things interesting.

About Jewel:

Jewel is a free-spirited romance junkie with a quirky sense of humor. With 10 years of flossing lectures under her belt, she took early retirement from her dental hygiene career to stay home with her three awesome boys and manage the family business. After her best friend of nearly 30 years suggested a few books from the Contemporary Romance genre, Jewel was hooked. Devouring two and three books a week but still craving more, she decided to practice sustainable reading, AKA writing. When she’s not donning her cape and saving the planet one tree at a time, she enjoys yoga with friends, good food with family, rock climbing with her kids, watching How I Met Your Mother reruns, and of course…heart-wrenching, tear-jerking, panty-scorching novels.
