A novel by Dawn Wright
As you all know, I'm not a gushy romantic. I look for love in the oddest of places, so for me to venture out and accept a novel like Capital Encounters, by Dawn Wright must say something, right? So was I captured? Was I able to shake the tomboyish ideas and become a non-fandomed, dorkless, business-oriented woman seeking "The One" like a B.O.S.S.?
Nah, but I still enjoyed the read. Capital Encounters tells of past mistakes, desire, chance and most of all Friendship. Our heroines are Summer, Brooke, Emily and Amber. Each woman, lovely and laced with some sort of issue, is pretty much easy to understand, but not quite relatable. They left me both interested and irritated- as should any good author manage to incite in a reader.
Though bits of the writing was stiff (felt forced more than flowed), the writing was terrific, making the read pleasant during my crazed day of NaNoWriMo in November. I believe I enjoyed Summer's story the most. Described by the author as a Free Bird, I saw me in her. The wide-eyed, bushy tailed, ready to leap sorta life is how I still greet life. What she endures along the way is a completely different story, but kept me hooked.
The issues I had with Capital Encounters is the amount of characters involved. I understand this tends to happen when each pivotal character has a life outside of the others. Sadly, sometimes it caused me to drift and not keep up. It happens with several POV's and intricacies such as this novel. Is that a negative quality? Nah, just stay focused. Remember, I'm a tomboy with selective ADD- you gotta keep a hold of me!
The twists and surprises are definitely a winner, and should be expected, but I didn't see some of these coming!
Also, I like drama, but OMGee, these girls... Stories like this make me happy I didn't hesitate for long on becoming a housewife and homeschool mom. Thankfully, the cliffhanger ending lets you know all will come to some sort of resolution. We shall see...
So am I a converted, die-hard romantic reader? At this day and age- please! But I can happily say, the book is good. Check out Dawn Wright and some of her other works; I'm moving on to the next read.
