Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Ask Me to Stay” by Terri Osburn, Montlake Romance, March 5, 2019
Terri Osburn, Author of “Ask Me to Stay” has written an endearing, heartwarming, entertaining and captivating novel. The Genres for this Novel are Fiction, Women’s Fiction, Romance, and a touch of Mystery and Suspense. The timeline for the story is in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the events or characters in the story. The Author describes her characters as complex and complicated.
Liza Teller is an author with a writer’s block. Her last book was quite successful, but she can’t move beyond that, and is given a chance to be a ghost-writer for a memoir of an older man, Ray Wallis. This takes Liza to a small and exclusive island off the South Carolina Coast. The author vividly describes the landscape and people who live in this area. There are beautiful views of nature, and the people who seem to live here are very wealthy. Liza wonders why Ray Wallis wants her to help write his memoir.
When Liza arrives on the island, she is picked up by Kendall James, and his dog, who seem to be working for Mr. Wallis. Kendall is not happy at all that Liza will be writing this book. Both Liza and Kendall seem they don’t get along at all, or do they??
There seem to be secrets, and mysteries that surround Mr. Wallis and the other characters. I highly recommend this hard to put down novel for readers that enjoy a romantic, mysterious and suspenseful story. I received an ARC from NetGalley for my honest review.
