Finding Infinity has nothing to do with sci-fi or mathematics. It is a down home romance set in small town Georgia with some jealousy, intrigue, failures, ego clashes etc. thrown in. This is not your dreamy romance, but more of an energetic one where you will need to be awake to keep track of all the characters and ups and downs in our heroine’s life.
Liddy James has been obsessed with Paris all her life. Widowed and alone, she has sold off her house, sent her son off to college and is now set to embark on an adventure in France. A fateful phone call halts her in her steps as she is about to board the plane. Her mother has had an accident and is an invalid! Duty calls and Liddy makes her way to the small town of Infinity where her mother lives in an assisted living center.
Liddy takes a big plunge and rents a storefront deciding to open her own cupcake shop. Le Cupcake is born with a huge investment but is bypassed by the locals. She even buys a pony and makes a friend – a big handsome hunk who helps her out all the time but knows she is going to fail in her business. When Liddy starts getting threats and her shop is attacked, it is obvious that someone really wants her out of Infinity. But she perseveres. Or you can say she is hard headed and refuses to give up even though her pocketbook is pretty empty!
We see Liddy James experience some good times with her wise mother, agonize over her dithery young son, battle attacks on her life and still dream of love. After reading Murder in the South of France From the same author, I had an idea of how complex a plot to expect. And Ms. Lewis did not disappoint. There is something for everyone here. Thrills, mystery, intrigue, passion, romance, love – you will not be disappointed you picked up this book. In some ways, the reader might feel frustrated that Liddy can’t spot the obvious truth about who’s got it in for her. The truth, however will turn out to be much more complicated and dangerous.
Finding Infinity is for folks who love small town stories, and a little spice with their romance, not the ‘under the covers’ kind, but the no holds barred, ready to take on the world type of action from a strong female lead. Enjoy!
