Reading “The Last Time I Was Me”

Julia's ChocolatesI have been thoroughly taken by author Cathy Lamb. I read her first book, “Julia’s Chocolates,” a few months ago. The characters could not be quirkier, yet once I got into the rhythm of the story, I have to admit I was turning the pages just to see what strange thing they’d do next.

The Last Time I Was Me

 

 

 

 

 

 

I liked it enough to go out and buy her second book, “The Last Time I Was Me.” It’s about a woman with several tragedies in her past that culminate in a major meltdown that not only blows her successful career out of the water, but puts her in court for revenge on a jerk boyfriend. (The court scene is simply delicious!) After hitting bottom so hard, she bounces back and builds a new life, making great new friends along the way. The bulk of the story is set in Oregon and Cathy Lamb really brings it all to life with a refreshing voice and perspective.

I would definitely recommend these books. Cathy Lamb is a master at creating weird, wonderful characters that I’d like to meet in person. Visit her website at www.cathylamb.net.

And it looks like I need to run to the book store and buy “Henry’s Sisters” her latest book that came out at the end of July.
