The List. That Signified Finality.

“You have terminal cancer.”
London Patterson, a seemingly healthy young woman, had her entire life ahead of her. That was until four little words brought everything to a screeching halt. As the shock and grief begin to fade, London decides to map out her last year and embark on an epic journey to complete a bucket list. She wants to do the things she’s been afraid to do in her life, step out of her self-contained box, and see the world. What she didn’t expect was for a mysterious stranger named Adam to breeze into her life like a breath of fresh air.
Adam offers to help London complete her list on one condition…that she sees it through to the end. Agreeing on those terms, the two set out on an adventure of a lifetime. But London soon realizes that Adam isn’t quite…human. Along their journey odd occurrences happen that cause London to question who or what Adam is and why he’s helping her.
Follow London as she checks off her bucket list in this inspiring new Urban Fantasy novel from Taylor Dawn.
The moment I read this blurb, I knew I wanted to read this book. When I had the chance to put my fingers on it, I was excited. It was so much fun! Wait a minute! Someone is dying and I am saying it is fun? Okay, so the way Taylor Dawn portrays London enables the story to be fun. You see there are several options when you’ve been given devastating news: curl up and ignore life, live with it, fight it, or go out living life to its fullest. London decides to go with the last option. She creates her bucket list and off she goes.
I would sum the book up in three words: Intriguing, humorous and thought-provoking. From the moment I read the back cover to the end of the book, I was intrigued. I kept coming back for more. The plot moved along nicely and was well written. The imagery was magnificent. I sat and chuckled my way through most of the book. “Waking up each morning had a new meaning now. I wasn’t sure of the exact meaning, but I knew there was one there hiding in the shadows.” This is typical of the wording, humor,and character development in the book. Taylor does an excellent job of weaving the story line and keeping you wondering about the outcome and who the characters really are. She brings in theological questions in a harmless way as London wrestles with her own mortality. The reader sympathizes with London and wants to see her accomplish her list. I will gladly reread this book and recommend it to anyone. It is well worth the read.
