The Jewel Box free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB A mouthy small town girl takes on big city life assisted by her Spiritual guide through sin city who pulls a Professor Higgins on Cherie while offering advice on single parenting and multiple affairs the heart Back in the Sixties while Motown hits filled the airwaves naïve Jill Novak acknowledged her knack for choosing losers when boring Husband Number One vanished leaving her to support their two year old The perpetual daydreamer soon morphs from small town Jill to sophisticated big city Cherie but a new name does not a better fut. Don t let the awful cover fool you It hides one magnificent intelligently written unforgettable story about enduring love And those who ve been following my reviews know by now that I avoid love stories like the plague One of my fellow bookworm friends who have the same taste in books I have insisted I read this gem of a novel and no matter how skeptical I was at first mainly due to the cover I agreed to read and review The Jewel Boxand I was hooked and totally in love with this book halfway through the first chapterIt follows the life of Jill aka Cherie who after a failed marriage starts right at the bottom to build a life for her and her daughter Nikki She unexpectedly falls in love with the last man she imagined she could form a connection with in the very last place she expected to find her Mr Right and thus begins a tale of two people having to overcome a multitude of obstacles in their uest for everlasting happiness and contentment Sounds simple and cheesy right I can guarantee you it s not like that at all even though my short summary sounds like every other romance out there McCarthy brings 1960s Texas to life with her colorful and diverse cast of flawed characters Using familiar pop culture and historical events she firmly grounds the reader in the story s timeline from the sixties all the way through to present day Houston No detail is spared as the reader slips into Jill and Gabriel s lives as we see these characters grow constantly forming new connections and friendships and eventually having to let go as some of these what becomes much loved characters pass away In this book it was not a uestion of me liking or not liking the characters but a matter of them feeling familiar to me as some of their characteristics I recognized as those I see in many of the people I know in real life You have the kooky neighbor across the hall who mouths off to anyone and everyone and who always picks Mr Wrong in an attempt to change him into Mr Right her uproarious antics made Delilah one of my supremely favorite characters in this book and then there s the meddling manipulating mother in law as well as that one person whose wisdom and encouragement bring along life altering changes to name only a few In all honesty every single character touched my heart in one way or another Even the not so nice ones had their redeeming ualities The only person surprisingly I had a hard time connecting to was Gabriel He was rather icky I m completely put off by men like him but maybe it was Jill s fascination with his moustache that fueled my dislike for him I m grossed out by moustaches or any facial hair for that matter It s the one reason I never watched Magnum PI I honestly enjoyed this book a lot than I initially thought I would it being a romance and all that but the writing is phenomenal and the characters voices makes it a read that s impossible to put down The dialogue is clever and infused with razor sharp wit and gave the story that authentic edge I am wholeheartedly looking forward to reading of this extraordinary writer s books
