"If you can write, that's great. If you can tell a story, that's even greater. But if you can work a resilient premise into both, you're worth digging to find."

Wishful Thinking by Kamy Wicoff

Synopsis: A novel about a divorced mother of two desperately in need of being in two places at one time.

Writing Style: Third person capricious adult contemporary fantasy.

Pacing: Measured, Meticulously detailed.

Premise: The price of ‘divorced motherhood,’ and the costs of entertaining a way to afford this lifestyle.

Personal Highlights: Once I stopped focusing on the detail of this app, and ‘relaxed’ myself, things got pretty interesting following the demands Jennifer experienced trying to manage two full-time, very diverse careers using this app. Impossible, made somewhat possible with this clever piece of technology...the app, provided Jennifer follows directions, which she does not. This was where the hook in an already unique tale unhinged and the theatrics escalated following Jennifer getting into one pickle after the next trying to be in two places at one time. The characters were genuine and for the most part fairly likable, though my favorite was Vinita. I liked her genuine gumshoe style.
