James Micheal Whren is brilliant, beautiful, rich, and taken—with himself, or more precisely, his genius for creating music. Desired by many, committing to no one but his muse, on the eve of his brother's funeral, his father inadvertently turns his life into a living nightmare, and James is left abandoned in hell with no one real to save him.

 

James Micheal Whren is brilliant, beautiful, rich, and taken—with himself, or more precisely, his genius for creating music. Desired by many, committing to no one but his muse, on the eve of his brother’s funeral, his father inadvertently turns his life into a living nightmare, and James is left abandoned in hell with no one real to save him.

His odyssey to freedom takes him beyond the looking glass, to the reflection of friends and lovers. Humbled and alone, James escapes to the Greek island of Corfu. But instead of finding solace there, loneliness almost consumes him.

Until Elisabeth, and her son, Cameron.

Reverb is a love story, a psychological thriller paced with romantic suspense. Intricately woven characters fraught with frailties that possess us all, are sure to linger long after the read. The story chronicles the evolution of a modern man–from solipsist to integrated awareness. It is a tale of redemption, of one man’s journey through extraordinary emotional growth, awakening his capacity to love.

Spun from The Magus, also about a man who learns to love someone other than himself, and way beyond 50 Shades of Gray, Reverb is told like Crime and Punishment–modern, clean, edgy verging on sharp. Like nothing you’ve read, guaranteed… 

My take:

I started reading this book and was having a hard time getting into it.  Needless to say I decided I needed to put it down and read something else.  I did some research by reading some reviews and noticed that the star ratings were very high, everyone loved it, I was intrigued to find out what I was missing.  It had been awhile since I’d put Reverb down and decided that it was time to pick it up again.  This round I was much more focused and was inspired to finish the book.  To my surprise the reviews I read were right.  It was very well written and the characters and plot twists were very well developed. I was totally surprised with the connection between James Micheal Whren and the man on the hill —

During my sabbatical I read The Goldfinch and loved it.  If you’ve read the Goldfinch, you’ll love reading Reverb.

Psychological thriller and romantic suspense.
