Artist Parker Lee has lost her Mojo. Her art is bland, her energy level is low and her revolving bedroom door hasn’t moved in far too long. And then Lucky comes into her life.
This was the first novel by Storm aka Linda Kay Silva and it won’t be my last. I liked the story, a free spirited 50ish San Francisco artist with conservative daughter and rebellious granddaughter decides to shake her life up. On a whim she purchases a Harley and the rut she’d been living in is thrown to the wind.
Sure some of the adventures are implausible but that’s part of the fun. There isn’t much introspection about why Parker so quickly donned a new persona “DaVinci” and transformed herself, but perhaps it’s simply because she’s an artist. I found the subplot of the evolving relationship between Parker and her granddaughter to be touching, the author has a great feel for the voice of someone young, the interactions feel true.
The romance is a little disjointed, a quickie in a restaurant bathroom suddenly turns into a summer long fling with a married woman. The yes/no, NO/well ok but just this once felt almost silly for adults. The sex was pretty chaste, certainly not the explicit erotica you often get.
In the end I liked the journey the author took us along for, a sweet story with a happy ending.
