Title: Copyright A Novel Author: Lori Lesko Published April 4th 2014 by CreateSpace ISBN 1497403030 (ISBN13: 9781497403031) Genre: Mystery thriller Book description (via Amazon.com): Amber Tyler is living every author’s dream: her books are all best sellers and she writes full time. She has worked hard and is well-accomplished in her career, and she has the support and love of her beautiful children and girlfriend. But the dream soon turns into a terrible nightmare when her latest manuscript is stolen. She decides to fight for what is rightfully hers, only to find that the harder she tries, the easier it all slips through her fingers, putting her career, her family, and her life in jeopardy.
WOW, what a thrilling story. I felt so excited for reading this book that I hope there is a second one to know what happens to the characters afterwards.
Amber Tyler, the main character, was living a perfect life with her two kids, her girlfriend Karen and a brilliant career as a writer. Until one day her health decides to play a trick on her, and after that her life decides to play a trick on her. All of a sudden a nightmare begins. We follow her on her the recovery of what is hers, with the ups and downs of her life during those days. She gets exposed to her weaknesses, she has to fight and be stronger to avoid losing everything.
I love the cover of the book. It’s simple and after reading it I can see how perfect it is for the story.
All the characters are amazing and they could be the person living next door to you, since they are so real. Amber is a woman with weaknesses, but also a fighter and very strong at some points. Her relationship with the kids, especially with the younger one, Kyra, is beautiful, and Kyra is really cute. Karen, her girlfriend, struggles to have the old Amber back the best way she can, even if she has to be tough. We can read about the desperation of people on the same situation as them.
The writing is simple, the plot is original and intense. There are several twists that made me keep reading and took my breath away. It’s a book full of mystery, suspense and action. It also has some of the “true life drama” which makes it seem very realistic, and that makes it even more interesting.
If someday I find there is a second book about this family, I’ll sure read it!
