“Scott Goodwin writes bestseller biographies and always dreamed of writing about his idol, Grandma’s Eye’s vocalist, Iris Morning. The singer and her husband, Douglas Oshiro, have been reclusive since 1984, when their famous psychedelic rock band announced a surprising halt. Scott is thrilled when Iris finally agrees to let him write the book and even more so when she explains why. She hopes the bio will help in finding her daughter Sunday and rebuild her shattered family.”
Having gorged myself on several Paranormal Romance novels one after the other, I was ready to read something different. ‘Myself In Blue’ gave me that something different. I will confess, my first thoughts during the first couple of chapters weren’t the greatest. I thought the book was “okay”, boy was I wrong!
As I read chapter after chapter of ‘Myself In Blue’, my husband asked me what I was reading. I described the book to him and called it a Sunday afternoon book. Why? Remember those old movies you’d sit and watch on a Sunday afternoon? Ones that were timeless but made ya feel good at the same time? That’s how I felt as I kept reading.
It wasn’t action packed like Paranormal fiction/romance books can be but it still made my heart pound when reading some parts.
This book is not to be taken lightly as there are some dark moments in it but when you get to the end, a sense of love and peace awaits. ‘Myself In Blue’ is heart-breaking but heart-warming at the same time and is best enjoyed snuggled up in your favorite reading spot with a big mug of your favourite hot drink.
Renata F. Barcelos has done such a fantastic job with this book. She has taken two strangers who have crossed each other’s paths and slowly built a relationship between them and oh, she did it so beautifully. My heart melted and bled for Sunday as she shared her past with Scott. At one point, I swear my heart literally ached. I couldn’t give this book anything less than 5 Shamrocks.
