Thursday, May 28, 2020

Annie Mercer loves order and organization. But lately, it seems like her life is anything but orderly. Her fiance, Jon, called her on the way to the airport after he decided he wanted to go see Paris for a month.  She has just quit her job as a chemist after her boss was inappropriate with her and due to an unfair non-compete clause, she can't even work in chemistry for two years. And some strange bombshell has moved into the neighborhood. Annie has decided she needs a sabbatical from people. But when Annie sees the new neighbor with quite the shiner, she starts to worry. Who is this woman and who has been hitting her? While she is being a concerned neighbor she bumps into a private detective, Mo. Mo won't tell Annie why he has been hired to follow Harper, but she finds herself bumping into him quite frequently.  For a woman who loves order and has sworn off meeting new people, Annie's life has turned into a chaotic mess full of new people.  Will her life ever get back to normal or will she embrace the chaos way of life?

This Won't End Well is a light-hearted read told through a series of journal entries, emails, and text messages. Annie Mercer is a sweet character with strong elements of "Sheldon Cooper." She has a scientific brain and has a hard time buying into things like essential oils and chakras. And is even kind of mean to her best friend about it. I really loved Mo in her life for that very reason. Mo is a laid-back, take things as they come kind of guy. Together, they balance each other out.  Jon, on the other hand, why would you leave your fiance and tell her not to contact you for a month? How can you expect to stay engaged after that happened?  I know I sure would have kicked his butt to the curb. But it didn't really play out the way I expected.  CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS. 

Bottom Line - On the surface, This Won't End Well is a light-hearted, witty novel. But underneath that wit are some hard-hitting topics like sexual-harassment, PTSD, racism, and school shootings. It makes for a fun and engaging story.
