Aliens! Conspiracy Theories!
green men from USA Today Bestselling author Daisy Prescott.My father was abducted by aliens.
Or so I believed for the last eighteen years.
After my mother’s death, I moved to Roswell, capital of all
things alien. I’m going to find out the truth and nothing will stop me . . .
except Boone Santos.
Compared to the intergalactic tinfoil hat brigade, he’s a
god amongst mere mortals. Too handsome for his own good (and mine), with a
grumpy arrogance, and the most beautiful smile ever—he smashes my plan to
pieces like a UFO crashing into the desert.
Definitely not . . .
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
There’s much to like in Tinfoil Heart, a romantic comedy with a touch of magic realism (this comes at the end and is dependent on which epilogue you read), from Daisy Prescott.
You know from the synopsis that you are going to be reading a quirky story, what I didn’t expect was that I would be laughing one moment and teary the next. I was glad, however, that the angst was minimal.
Lucy’s father left when she was little. The story of his departure evolved until Lucy’s mother said that he was abducted by aliens. Was it true or was it so that her mother never had to admit that he was the kind of man who would just leave?
After her mother and grandparents die, Lucy, feeling alone in the world, goes to Roswell, New Mexico to find answers, if there are any to be found.
Lucy waits tables in a diner where she encounters the other-worldly handsome, but taciturn, Boone.
Sparks sometimes literally fly between Lucy and Boone, and their romance is a whirlwind, but it feels real. I love Lucy’s snark and Boone’s mysterious nice guy. (He also plays bass in a band, what’s not to love? 😉 )
I loved Tinfoil Heart until I came to the end, where the author interjected and then provided a choice of two epilogues. I didn’t like either of them. I didn’t like the author breaking up the momentum. The ending is a definite YMMV experience.
With that said, I enjoyed the book and would recommend it. If you’ve read it or are going to read it, I’d love to know what you thought of the ending…or any of it.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
ps Isn’t the cover fantastic?!
