$25 Amazon/PP-WW (1)-Signed Book-USA(1)-The Long Goodbye-James Robinson, Jr-Ends 3/27

Wednesday, March 12, 2014




I was lucky enough to receive the first in this series as well as this one. Truthfully I think the sequence should have been reversed but since they were both very short-these are actually novellas- I was able to read both in one sitting! I was left wanting to know more--much more. You can be sure I will be getting the subsequent books in this series as soon as they are written.

This family sure has its share of troubles-which nobody speaks about. Until the wedding where things that happened in the past are brought to light and futures are in doubt.


NEW RELEASE

The Long Goodbye by James Robinson Jr

Johnson Family Chronicles, Book 2 

Under the sweltering Savannah sun, magnolia trees bloom and a posh wedding takes place. The happy couple, open bar, opulent favors and scrumptious food are merely window dressing for the real drama…Fifty-five-year-old Samuel is mesmerized by Kat, the gorgeous maid of honor who is half his age and is doubly interested in him. Samuel’s wife, Tabitha, fights desperately to draw his attentions back to her and their floundering marriage. Meanwhile, Samuel’s mother, Maxine, runs into a man from her past. As the liquor flows, lips are loosened and the truth wins out. Will Samuel be led astray by the promise of restoring his own waning youth? Will Maxine find new love with an old flame?

Stranded in the Savannah, Georgia Airport after a family wedding, Dr. Samuel Johnson—a Gynecologist—his wife and his parents confront their family emotional baggage even as their Louis Vitton luggage makes its way to the families final destination. During his eight-hour layover in Savannah, Samuel discovers the painful secrets that mull his father’s past, suffers through the erratic behavior of his mother, and even his lovely even-keeled wife has acquired an inexplicably hard edge. He is also forced to confront the fact that he has grown weary of his all-consuming medical practice and longs for another life. As tensions rise, more and more secrets are revealed as the airport becomes the family’s battleground. Can Samuel find a way to make things right?

Sure sounds like there's a lot going on with the story's characters, especially with Samuel.

Sharon Martin said...

Yes there's definitely a feeling of so much more to come and I can't wait either xx

Heather Swarthout said...

This sounds like such a sad book. I'm definitely interested though!

I don't have a funny wedding memory, but I do love going to weddings. Each time I go to one, I usuall cry for some reason. You would think after a couple of weddings the crying would be over.... but no. I do it each and every time.

Amanda Love said...

The long goodbye sounds like a great read but I'm not too much into novellas. I love books that I can read for at least 2 days. I may still get it on my Kindle. Thanks for the giveaway.

Amanda McMahon said...

I love books that come in series because they really allow for the story to develop. This one looks great!

Masshole Mommy said...

Sounds like there is a lot going on with the people in the story. I like novellas because I like shorter stories. This one definitely sounds like a good one.

Lawna Noe said...

I love that they are short, so it doesn't take that long to read. They sound like great books!

Angel said...

This book sounds a little bit like a soap opera. I hope that the families stay together! :)

Sherry Butcher said...

at a wedding I was at with my mother the ring bearer was not up to it and ran to his monther, the flower girl took over.

Brynn said...

My veil flew all over my face during some bad wind during our photography session and we have some pretty funny looking pictures to remember it

Bibi @ Bibi's Culinary Journey said...

I am already hooked. Very intriguing review :)

Kristen Campbell said...

Somehow I think I've read "The Long Goodbye" before…but I can't remember it specifically...

Theresa Mahoney said...

Wedding are usually good story makers! While I tend to prefer a longer story, if the novellas are wound together to make a bigger story, I'm all for giving them a shot!

Katherine Bartlett said...

What a sad book! It looks like it could be good though

Lexie Lane said...

I read what you'd written before I saw the author's name. Really thought it was a woman who wrote it. Very shocked. Definitely left me wanting to know more!

Jeanne Agee said...

I don't know if it is that funny but I will always remember having to go back to my parents house to get something I forgot to pack for our honeymoon. Kind of uncomfortable seeing them after our wedding night!!!

I appeared unexpectedly at my cousin's wedding to give him my blessings. My cousin did not have any idea I was flying half way around the world to attend his wedding. He said my presence was a big enough present for him.

Jody Doncaster said...

My wedding- the maid of honor was 8 months pregnant. Burgundy satin dress. Rain cam off the roof as we scooted into the hall and big drips shows super-dark on her belly in all the pics! Hilarious!
