Something to Live For by Richard Roper
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy Fenton of Compulsive Readers, Orion Fiction’s and Richard Roper for the opportunity to read and review Something to Live For as part of the #BlogTour.
I wouldn’t have missed this for the world!
The Back of the book
Sometimes you need to risk everything…
To find your something
Andrew works with death for a living. Searching for people’s next of kin and attending the funerals if they don’t have anyone, he’s desperate to avoid the same fate for himself. Which is fine, because he has the perfect wife and 2.4 children waiting at home for him after a long day. At least, that’s what he’s told people.
The truth is, his life isn’t exactly as people think and the little white lie he once told is about to catch up with him.
Because in all Andrew’s efforts to fit in, he’s forgotten one important thing: how to really live. And maybe, it’s about time for him to start.
Well where do I start… When I was reading Something to Live For I felt like shouting STOP! when Andrew was digging himself deeper with his lies. Then it came, the tugging of my heart strings, the laughter and the sorrow. What a situation to get in to.
I can honestly say that I had tears in my eyes at times. The desperation of Andrew came across so well, you can feel it as his story progresses. I found myself wishing Andrew and Peggy would talk and get things out in the open. How can one person make their life so difficult with one white lie.
I recommend Something to Live For to everyone. Although this is fiction, there are people out there that get themselves into such a mess they feel they cannot escape. This will certainly make them and others think.
To think this is a debut novel is just astounding.
