Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Other People’s Things” by Kerry Anne King, 2021. On Tour with Suzy Approved Book Tours
“Other’s People Things” by Author Kerry Anne King, is an intriguing, captivating, witty, and thought-provoking novel that I enjoyed and highly recommend for other readers. The Genres for this novel are Fiction, Suspense, Women’s Fiction and a touch of Magical Realism. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events. The author describes her dramatic characters as complex, complicated, and flawed. Kerry Anne King vividly describes her characters, settings and events.
The protagonist in this story, Nicole Wood is very controversial. To some , she appears to be a thief or a kleptomaniac. Without doubt, Nicole has taken things that don’t belong to her. The question is “WHY”? Nicole has been in jail, and it is documented that she has taken things that don’t belong to her. Her almost ex-husband can tell you that she has stolen from him, and he is very intent to get what she took back. On the other hand, he seems to be providing a therapist to help her with this problem. (Or is he?)
Nicole reminds me of a sort of female “Robin Hood”, in that she seems to have a special ability to see where select items belong. The problem is that she has to remove the item from one place and move it to where it should possibly be. Should we consider this a gift of sorts? Some of these times the movement of these objects is a catalyst in discovering something bigger, and often is very positive. There is an essence of magical energy that seems to exist, or perhaps not.
When Nicole has no choices, she starts to work for her sister’s cleaning company. Nicole is really an excellent cleaner, and observant, but if she gets that strong feeling that something doesn’t belong, that can cause problems. Nicole really wants to do the right thing.
The author discusses the importance of family, second chances, forgiveness, love, and hope. I read this book in one sitting and just couldn’t put it down. I suggest that you read this memorable and thought-provoking book. Happy Reading!
