A Sudden Gust Of Gravity

Christina Davenport, waitressing to pay the bills, has given up on becoming a magician—until she meets the mesmerizing Reynaldo the Magnificent. He offers her a job as his assistant in his magic and juggling show. She takes it, hoping she can revive her dream without cutting his giant ego in half.

I chose to feature this book because I've always wanted to be the first to review a new book on the Amazon website. "Gravity" caught my attention as a potentially entertaining book, something I needed to read on a rainy and gloomy day.

In A Sudden Gust of Gravity the lives of Christina Davenport, Dev (Doctor Dae Soon), and Ralph (Reynaldo the Magnificent) intertwine while each becomes aware of and casts out individual demons. This is a multifaceted story with interesting and well-rounded main characters and even more interesting backstory characters. Laurie Boris has written a novel with a healthy balance of intrigue, conflict, relationships, and romance. Highly recommended. 

"When you play from your heart, all of a sudden there's no gravity. You don't feel the weight of the world, of bills, of anything. That's why people love it. Your so-called insurmountable problems disappear, and instead of problems you get possibility." - Carlos Santana

  2. Laurie, your books sounds intriguing. I liked your saying "When you play from your heart, all of a sudden there no gravity." That's so true.
