Welcome to Wherever You Are – John Marrs – Genre – Fiction
Blurb: How far would you run to escape your past?
For eight strangers in a Los Angeles backpacking hostel, even the other side of the world isn’t far enough.
The craving for a new identity and the chance to start again is something they have in common. But the search for a fresh start isn’t as easy as they’d imagined.
And they soon discover that it doesn’t matter where you are or who you are – if you can’t lay the past to rest, coincidence, fate and deception have a way of catching up with you when you least expect it.
My Review: Here is my review for Welcome to Wherever You Are. I read The Wronged Sons about a year ago and was utterly blown away by the storyline, twists and turns and actually contacted the author on Goodreads to let him know, which is the first time I had EVER done that. After making contact John and I became “online” friends and I was so excited to hear that he was writing another book. Infact I was one of the extremely fortunate people to read an early extract months ago and last week I read the final copy in a day!. Firstly I need to point out that this is nothing like The Wronged Sons and I don’t think it should be compared to it either. This is about 8 strangers who are all running away from their past and end up in a back packing hostel in LA. The author has an incredible talent for telling stories that weave in and out, merging the past and present, leaving the reader baffled by making you despise a character one chapter and then break your heart the next. I loved this book and highly recommend it. A solid 5* from me!
