SNOWFLAKE -Heide Goody and Iain Grant Comedy fiction
Lori arrives home from her holiday to Crete to find that her parents have
moved and left her a letter basically telling her she now has to stand on her
own two feet. She hasn’t any money. She told her parents she was starting
a business and used the money for the holiday instead. She has been left
a life line in that she can move into her brothers flat whilst he is out of the
country working so at least she has a roof over her head. She soon
discovers that she is not alone.Her pendant that she bought whilst away
has special powers and life takes an interesting turn.
I couldn’t help but smile as I read this. One of those books that you don’t quite
know why but it draws you in to Lori’s larger than life adventures and keeps
you there with a smile. Think Jumanji (in part) in a book. I wanted to see
this on a screen, it would be brilliant- I won’t say any more so as not to
spoil it. If you want cheering up then maybe this is the book to do it.
There is also a message within the pages- about being the person you
are and want to be rather than whom others feel you should be.
A message some of us find difficult to absorb. A brilliant read that
left me with thoughts and a huge smile.

Lori Belkin has been dumped. By her parents.
They moved out while she was away on holiday, and now, at the tender age of twenty-five, she’s been cruelly forced to stand on her own two feet.
While she’s getting to grips with basic adulting, Lori magically brings to life the super-sexy man she created from celebrity photos as a teenager.
Lori learns very quickly that having your ideal man is not as satisfying as it ought to be and that being an adult is far harder than it looks.
