From back of book
Val is just a regular college student, with a unique ability to save people's lives, having a drink in a coffee shop. Bud is an elderly gentleman who knows certain things that will happen to certain people and he knows something about Val's future. When he sits down next to her and holds her hands it will start a friendship that both of them are desperate for. It will also set off a chain of events that will dramatically change both their lives, from the gunshot that's just seconds away to a heroic battle with fate and death.
My review 4 1/2 Great to the last drop
135 pages of delightful greatness. This is a touching story about guardian angels and friendship. I enjoyed the unexplained special talents that assisted with the inevitable events around them. Bud had visions of the future and had to make choices, do nothing or change fate. Val was able to move objects, people, kind of mesmerizing.
The eyebrow raise was that Bud is over 70, Val is 18, different races and no one seemed to be affected by this, I would have appreciated a reaction. Val tried to come up with a word to describe them and partners seemed to fit, which I would agree. This kind of connection I wish could have been shared with friends or family though, the overall secret made it feel wrong.
You will either love the experience of reading this book or it could make you uncomfortable. There is spirituality throughout, Val and Bud trying to understand their talents and what they were made to do with them for the greater good. Do they have the right to change destiny?
Very interesting book, I hope there will be a sequel with the story of a new beginning of the vision Bud saw for Val's future.
I highly recommend this one, a feel good refreshing read.
I read the review over at Natalie's blog Coffee and a Book Chick and picked it up due to her review.
