Waving Backwards

Happy Fourth of July!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful and relaxing day!  I got my new grill put together (it was actually pretty easy) and hooked up the tank.  We gave it a trial run last night!  I am looking forward to having  a steak on it tonight!  What is it about summer and grilling?  

Waving Backwards by V.L. Brunskill is set in 1991.  Lara Bonavito has always known she is adopted.  She has been trying to get information on her biological family since she was thirteen years old (records were sealed).  Lara has finally found a clue to help her locate her biological mother.  She finds a riddle that was sent home with her from the hospital behind her baby photograph (her adoptive mother hid it).  The riddle leads her to Savannah, Georgia.  Lara uses her college tuition loan check to pay for her trip.

There Lara meets Robert Taylor.  Robert spends his time as a tour guide and then picks one lady to hook up with at the end of each tour.  When Robert takes Lara out for a drink, she tells him about her search.  Robert states he has information that will help her.  Lara follows the clues to find her biological family.  Will Lara like the answers she finds at the end of her search?  Is Robert a cad or is he serious about Lara?

This novel was not engaging or interesting (except for the history of the Waving Girl).  I give Waving Backwards 1 out of 5 stars.  This story just did not grab me.  The way Lara went about her search made absolutely no sense (kind of haphazard). The writing is okay, but the book is lacking.  It was just not for me.  Waving Backwards is available on Kindle Unlimited.

I received a complimentary copy of Waving Backwards from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

One thing I found interesting was the Waving Girl.  I looked up the history and found a picture of the statute.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my latest review.  I will be posting a review of a wonderful book soon.  It is The Girl Who Wrote in Silk by Kelli Estes.  Enjoy the fireworks and Happy Reading!
