"The Scent of Jasmine" by Linda Girgis M.D.

 

My Thoughts....

 

"The Scent of Jasmine" was one very interesting read about what can happen to one with breast cancer.  This author tell of a story that dealt with Gabby Ryan who was a investigator reporter but notice something was wrong.  In all of her reporting I don't think that she thought that she would  in up reporting about her life as she had to deal with her cancer that had earlier taken her mother's life. This is one of those stories that was very a sad one for me to read.  It was hard to believe all that Gabby and her brother Gabe had to go through in dealing with the insurance and medical system just to get the help she needed so badly.  It will really cause one to wonder is this really how our system works for one that is ill and have insurance? What was up with 'The Scent of Jasmine' that was what Gabby's mom had worn?  I liked how this author fitted it into this story.

 

I don't want to spoil it much by telling too much of this story other than saying this is one story that all should read and not just the women but also by men too. I will say in the end Gabby Ryan received a Pulitzer Prize from all that she had documented about her trouble horrible disease... 'Breast Cancer.'  However, all that is left  ... well it seems like this ugly disease may even be knocking at the door of another family member.  One will be left wondering if Gabe will have to suffer as his sister Gabby had done from the insurance company denying her the help she really needed. The answer to a important question...can men get breast cancer?  YES!

 

Well, it looks like for Gabe that he is beginning a journey as "he looked straight out into the night,  "I am coming soon, Mom,  as he smelled a light of jasmine odor..I hope I can do something good before the time I go, but I am coming home."

My Thoughts.....

 

All I can say is that this author warns the reader "This is a suspense novel with romantic elements and no cliffhanger. It includes adult scenes, violence and graphic language" so there is nothing left to say other than she indeed gives the readers just that!  Hopefully you have read the fist series..'going Nowhere Fast Book 1 because this read continues on to Book 2. This will definitely be one of those reads that will keep your attention because there is so much going on!  I not sure if I felt sorry for Melanie or what because she definitely needed so much help and it seemed like there was none of that around her. Those two brothers....Mason and Damien to me were both crazy and definitely twisted and believe me when I can there are a few more crazy characters in this story.   This was definitely one of those disturbing reads where everyone needed some type of therapy due to the fact of all that was going on...from 'betrayal, sexual situations, insane, secrets, lies, manipulation, murder, graphic violence' only to name a few of this suspenseful read that one will need to process. Did this author write a well written read?  Yes, I think she did definitely keeping my attention all the way to the end.  So, all that is left to say... if this is your kind of read enjoy!

My Thoughts......

What a suspenseful fast paced read that will keep you turning the pages to see what is coming next in this intriguing read. The author really has some very interesting characters that will really have you shaking your head and saying what? Since this is a a cliffhanger we will have to wait and see what will come next for poor Melanie Pittman who faces murder, blackmail and even 'sex for her silence by a brother who knows what has done." Now to get the rest of this suspenseful story you must pick up this author's Book 2 in "Nowhere To Hide." I can only image what that read will be all about!

My Thoughts...

 

This is definitely one of those reads that you will not want to put down until the end.  The story will be filled with so many lies that you will simply have to keep up with all of its twist and turns. I found all of the characters simply off the chart bringing so much to this story that will have you shaking your head and saying wow...I didn't see that one coming.  At the end I was left wondering just who the truthful person was in this read.  There was so much damage that had been done would there be a any room for a healing?  I will only say this author has done it again and that is give the readers another good read.
