My Reviews – SOULS – by J.A. Hinsman

There are so many interesting, wonderful authors whose books I would like to read and in the process, get to know the authors themselves as well, but in my efforts to do so, I seem to gravitate towards those who have a special affinity for animals.  Jennifer Hinsman is such a person.  I loved reading more about her family’s cat and dog in her short biography.  She also reblogged a post from Katzenworld. – A worthy read, especially if you’re a cat lover.

Jennifer Hinsman was also a guest author on Rave Reviews Book Club PAY-IT-FORWARD.

Book Description

Souls: A Novel by [Hinsman, J A]

Souls is the unforgettable story of Ann, and the painful death of her twin sister, Celeste. Ann sets out on a quest to find the killer of her womb-mate following the subsequent death of her parents and after depression nearly kills her.
Ann finds herself in California seeking out a Hollywood producer as the perpetrator and while there finds her soul coming back to life when she meets a young actor, Tyler Peters. She cringes at the idea of dating someone younger and becoming a ‘cougar’, but she may be able to use him for his Hollywood connections. An astonishing electricity between the two turns to a passionate and deep love that is tested by an unpredictable twist that comes when Ann figures out who is behind her sister’s death.

Souls is J.A. Hinsman’s second published novel on Amazon and I enjoyed this 239-page book very much.

My Review

A Lost Soul Finds Hope

on 28 March 2017
I downloaded a sample of “SOULS” and felt rather cheated when the sample ended abruptly at a curious place. So I bought the book there and then. I wasn’t disappointed and enjoyed following the many twists and turns of this story. Ann is an interesting character, out to find the person who is responsible for her twin sister, Celeste and her parents’ death.
What a plot. I would never have guessed how things turned out, but I’m sure you’ll be as satisfied as I was when Ann faces the perpetrator in a thrilling stand-off and comes face to face with death.
Plusses for me: Dialogue throughout was natural. No information dumps anywhere; some romance without explicit detail, leaving something for the imagination; well described friendship with Ed who remains an endearing, supportive character; good character development, especially Ann; some descriptive passages enhance the plot and mood of the occasion.
So, if you like the above and don’t mind a story told throughout in the first person, as well as meeting her ghostly twin sister from the past, I highly recommend this book.
