Another Excellent Story With Lots of Growing
4.5 out of 5 stars
I go into most of the books from Robin Alexander blind. I usually know the setting I’m going to get (bayou, Louisiana, etc.) and that the two women will have their own battles to overcome. I don’t want to spoil the rest of it because the real meat and potatoes live within the emotions of her books. Scaredy Cat was no different, and honestly, it might have some of the biggest changes and heart.
Scaredy Cat was a story about a writer who, for lack of a better explanation, was scared of most of the world. And it’s also a story about someone having the patience and kindness to help her face some of her fears and become a better person after the fact. Alexander wrote such beautiful souls into both Blake and Quinn. Each has unique challenges and helps the other face them in their own way.
Overall, I thought that the story itself was beautiful. The characters jumped off the page. And the overall feeling I got was just pure happiness. There were moments that I was like, “wow, that would be so hard” for both of them. And I think that’s why it was so beautiful as things progressed at their pace.
As always, Lori Prince nails this. There’s a reason I search for her name when I’m looking for another book. I know I will get something awesome and her performance will make the book even better.
Blake Taylor isn’t the queen of horror, but she’s certainly a member of the royal court. Blake has made a career out of writing novels that make her readers want to leave the lights on at night. What Blake’s fans and very few people realize is that Blake Taylor is scared of her own shadow and just about everything else. After a family intervention, a case of writer’s block, and the desire to be free of the confines of fear, she leaves New York and rents a house in Cypress Glade, Louisiana.
Quinn Scott, a local, is hired by Blake’s agent to be a tour guide of sorts for her most famous and troublesome client. The job seems simple for a thousand bucks a month, but as she gets to know Blake, it’s anything but easy. Birds, squirrels, broccoli, and dogs are fearsome creatures.
Find a comfortable spot, visit Cypress Glade, and watch as these two women learn to conquer fears that don’t always go bump in the night. Be warned, a few feathers may fly….
