Sunspots by Karen S. Bell
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
Sunspots is a heartwarming novel about love and loss from Karen Bell. At its core, Sunspots is definitely a love story, with some ghostly and paranormal elements woven in to help a young woman gain closure after the heartbreaking loss of her spouse.
What did not appeal to me was the lack of editing and long winded style of writing. Numerous spelling errors were noted which amplifies this book as a self-published book that missed a good editor. One example, draw instead of drawer.
I found Aurora to be charming, flawed, and raw; she adds comedy and tragedy throughout the story, as well as a finely tuned sense of pop culture reference that any modern reader will connect with. In the end, this book is enchanting, with a better cover and editor it would even be a worthy contender for Oprah's Book Club.
I give this book 3.5 stars.
