Fun Chick Lit: A Sudden Gust of Gravity by Laurie Boris

Review by Donna Huber

One of the great things about having a backlog of review copies on my Nook is finding wonderful gems such as A Sudden Gust of Gravity by Laurie Boris. It was cute and fun and kept me up well past my bedtime.

A Sudden Gust of Gravity
November 2017; 978-1519181930
ebook, print (286 pages); romance
Christina always wanted to be a magician, just like her dad. But girls aren't master magicians; they are the lovely assistant that disappear into boxes or get sawed in half. Amidst struggling to finish college while working at as a waitress for a local Mom & Pop restaurant, she receives her late father's magic kit. The dream is reawakened, but she needs to polish her skills. A street magician is in need of an assistant, can this be Christina's ticket to fulfilling her childhood dream?

Along side Christina's storyline is Devon - a Korean-American medical resident. It was just expected that he would follow in the steps of Uncle Doctor, yet the death of an infant takes him back to the night he lost his brother in a gang-related shooting and he's not sure what his future holds.

The characters are so cute (and I feel old calling 20-somethings cute). Boris created realistic characters in terms of feelings and reactions of people who are at a crossroads in their life. Oh and the street magician who thinks he is all that...a great character for you to love to hate. You will be cheering on Christina and Devon and booing at Reynaldo the Magnificent.

The secondary characters are interesting and add a fullness of life to the main characters (in other words they don't exist in a bubble). Small Lee threatens to steal every scene he is in and I could see restaurant owners Rosa and her husband getting their own book.

The plot was well developed and had just the right amount of conflict for a fun chick-lit novel. The story flows well and at a good pace. Really there isn't much more you could ask for in a great rom-com.

If you are like me and missed this gem of a story, remedy that today. You won't regret it.
