Women's Fiction with Paranormal Undertones
Date Published: February 20, 2015
Synopsis:Kat is struggling to get her life back together and put her anorexia and suicide attempts behind her. She must expel the mysterious inner demons that have plagued her for years, and patch up the rocky relationship with her fiancé.
But when she arrives in London for a therapeutic art project, an encounter with an enigmatic woman named Destiny upsets her views of reality and plunges her into a quest for the truth about her past—an astonishing past that reaches back well before her birth.
After midnight, Destiny leads Kat to extravagant parties at an eerie luxury hotel and introduces her to a man who seems to know her better than she knows herself. Kat tries to convince herself this is all part of a strange dream. But as evidence mounts suggesting otherwise, Kat is torn between fascination and fear.
Will Kat run away, or will she seize the fleeting opportunity to change her life and find true love?
Alternating between the reality of day and the mystery of night, Close to Destiny by best-selling author Adria J. Cimino is a magical realism story of déjà vu and righting past wrongs that will delight fans of authors like Sarah Addison Allen and Erin Morgenstern.
I was given this book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with the book.
I really like books with unusual elements. This book has that. A psychic or two or three .... Is the past really tied to the present and future? Can seeing the past change the present? How can you attend a party with people alive and others that are dead?
Katherine has drawn pictures as part of her therapy for severe depression. These drawings are being shown in a London art show. It is in London where all the unusual activity begins. Is it real? Is she really a reincarnated person from the past with issues that need to be dealt with?
This book is really good. I enjoyed the whole story. I like paranormal and mystery. I think the author did a very good job of relating the story. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author!
