Every now and then I find myself lost in a novel that completely takes my breath away and makes me pause to re-evaluate my life and where I am in it. Lost in Carmel by Terri Lee definitely turned into one of those gems. I have not read anything by Terri Lee before this so I was not sure exactly what I would be getting myself into when I decided to give this book a go for the pure beauty that is the cover. I loved it and I am so glad that I did pick this up!
Lost in Carmel brings us the story of Natalie Hampton, a Hollywood star and pretty much America’s sweetheart. We get to see everything that comes with that title and all the dirty and dark secrets that often surround the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Things are not easy and she if faced with a lot of difficult life lessons that are of course complicated in general but then you add the extra issues of being in the spotlight and stuck to figure out how to navigate life feeling so very lonely. I adored this book and found myself reeling from the emotions from the very beginning to the gorgeous end. It was a nice little vacation to Rome as well and I loved the descriptions of the scenes that made me feel as if I was right there with Natalie. I look forward to seeing what else is available from Terri Lee while I anxiously await to see what will come out new from her as well!
