Review ~ Celeste

Celeste

Blurb:
Kyle McRoy doesn't know who to trust. He became a wealthy man after his parents died in a freak accident, but Kyle lost control. A mental breakdown led to hospitalization in what his brother called a Behavior Therapy Center, but something about his brother tugs at the back of his fragile psyche. While at the center, Kyle meets the lovely Celeste but soon discovers there are things about Celeste he doesn't know. Things, perhaps, no one can ever know.

No, Kyle McRoy doesn't know who to trust... least of all, himself. After all, it's hard to know who to trust when you're not even sure what's real.

My Review:

A good quick read!, July 24, 2012
If you're looking for a good quick read to take you to another place then this just might be your choice! It held my attention & kept my curiosity peaked. I was sure I had it all figured out ... up until the very end that is! I would definitely read more about Celeste & Kyle if the book were to continue. I did catch myself having to re-read a few sections one more time (just to make sure I read it correctly) as a few small parts threw me a bit. All in all it will definitely make you think & hopefully keep you entertained. :*)

About the Author:
Michelle Devon is sometimes affectionately (and sometimes not so affectionately) known as Michy. That's pronounced Mickey, like the mouse, and not Mishy, like a fish; not Mitchy like the guy on Baywatch; and no, it doesn't rhyme with b*tchy, though she can sometimes be that too.
For over a decade, Michy was a freelance print and web writer by day and an emergent novelist by night, until her family finally told her, "It's your turn now." Thinking they meant it was her turn to focus on her fiction writing career, Michy pushed freelancing to the back burner, completed three novels in three years, as well as starting three more that are in various stages of completion. She then began the journey of polishing, perfecting and per... puh.. P... well, running out of P words for alliteration, she began to search for a literary agent.
Little did she know, literary agents don't scrub showers (well, at least not other people's--they might scrub their own), and her family had actually meant it was her turn to clean the bathroom. So, shower scum went unchecked, and Michy really needs to sell one of these novels to pay for the cleaning service to come and etch the mold, mildew, and muh... m... well, she ran out of M words for alliteration too.
If asked what she does for her 'day job', she'll answer, "I'm a full-time professional dreamer..."
