A Twist and Two Balls by Clare London
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was so happy to finally have some quiet time to read this. I've been dying to read it since I read the blurb--a Turkish cab driver and an underemployed actor? No super rich people? YES!
If you've read some of my reviews, you no doubt expect me to follow that up with, "so I was disappointed...." but I wasn't! It's an unbelievable treat to have a story be every bit as good as I'd hoped it would be. Although I've read this author before, so I had a reasonable expectation she wouldn't let me down.
Clare London has a way of writing that just draws me in and this story was no exception. By chapter two I literally breathed out a sigh, the sound of a reader who trusts the writer to deliver and is settling in with all the happy feels.
Although it was a novella, at no point did it feel like the writer skimped on details, this story was as long as it needed to be, the characters as realized as I needed them to be to feel for them. I will re-read this one, in a few months, just for the sheer joy of it. This is my favourite so far, from this author.
