Review of A Likely Story
This was definitely an interesting book. Isabelle has always hoped or felt destined to be a best selling author like her father Ward. Ward was emotionally unavailable to Isabelle throughout her life so she was determined to make him proud and she knew this was the only way to do it. Both Ward and Isabelle are self centred, unlikeable, and polarizing characters. With both of these characters being authors it was fascinating to learn more about the publishing world and what an author goes through to write and publish a book. Then there are the further expectations if that book is a best seller. I love a great family drama story and this is definitely that. As all the family secrets are uncovered the book really takes shape. I was impressed with Isabelle’s personal growth and even Ward had some! The ending tied things up nicely. Overall a great debut book from this author.
