Caroline Walken was a completely new author to me. I was not sure what to expect going into this novel and went in with a completely blank slate. I didn’t read the reviews or blurbs, the front cover simply drew me in. Frankly, the lot of her available covers drew me to the author, I was kind of on one of those one-click late night binges.
This story gave us a backstage pass to the world of a woman that is grasped tight within the disease of Alzheimer’s. We get to follow along on her journey through her eventful life, each and every twist and turn in the road that has led her to where she is today as a mother and grandmother. All the family secrets and drama unfold within the pages of this novel and keep the intrigue well encompassing throughout. Usually when novels jump from past to present time it is difficult to follow it can be tricky to keep up with, this was not the case in Behind the Fan.
I look forward to seeing what else is in store behind each of the other gorgeous covers that grace the novels from Caroline Walken in the very near future. I would like to see her explore a bit more of the romance part, seems she has a knack for that particular writing style. Overall, a solid four-star read!
