Reviewer Calls "Seismic Influences" Great Read

Novel Title: Seismic InfluencesAuthor: Priscilla Audette
Author website:
Genre: Literary Fiction
ISBN: 147520180X


Reviewed by Dakota Jean originally for Amazon 

Be prepared to not be able to put this book down. It started as if it was a murder mystery, but it is way more than that. Joy finds a body, but the story is really about her transformation from a clueless 19-year-old college drop-out waitress to someone who has experienced life on many levels. I found myself thinking more about philosophy of life after reading this novel, than after reading non-fiction books written for that purpose. Along the way, there was humor, lots of sex and romance, and a cast of characters that you both loved and despised (some at the same time). The writing is smooth--and sassy! As a retired librarian, it almost makes me want to go to work again so I can recommend this to library readers.
