Book Review & Giveaway: The Traveling Man


Title: The Traveling Man (Traveling, #1)
Author: Jane Harvey – Berrick
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance



I was ordinary. Nice. He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice.

Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t.

Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path.

Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life. As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough.

Lori's thoughts: When I started reading this book, it somehow slipped through that it is series. I enjoyed it enough that I will probably continue reading the series, but I hope I don't have to wait too long because this really has me intrigued. Kes makes it hard to be liked. He's charming. He's hot. He's just so closed off. They say actions speak louder than words, and his actions say he loves Aimee, but you'll never hear him admit it. In fact, he never tells her much of anything. He's had a hard, tough life. The life of a carnie. I really loved the world building with this book. The slow easy burn. I was a little uncomfortable with their romance at such a young age, but feel that it was a necessary part of the storyline. This is the kind of book that started when they were both kids at the age of 10. It progresses through the years. Long distance relationships are difficult, at best. Let alone ones where you only get to see the other person once a year for a very short time. 

While I loved this book, and will definitely continue with the series, there were some things that I found a little sketchy. The sneaking in the bedroom window all the time, and never getting caught. The sneaking out ... not getting in trouble. Maybe in other people's houses that's a likely scenario, but I can't imagine it would have been in mine.

Four traveling, dare-devil hearts!

I lived in London for over 10 years and have a love affair with New York. It's only since I have moved to the countryside, that the words have really begun to flow.

I live in a small village by the ocean and walk my little dog, Pip, every day. It’s on those beachside walks that I have all my best ideas.

Writing has become a way of life – and one that I love to share.
