The location has changed for the Portland book signing for Sunbreaks.

Third Place Books is interested as well and hopefully we can have some book signings at these Seattle locations soon. The location has changed for the Portland book signing for Sunbreaks. The signing will now be held at the Costco in North Portland on 4849 NE 138th Street. That is the one off of Marine Drive.

Greg Messel is good at throwing in a tidbit of history here and there during the course of the story. One person found this helpful. And there are black and white photos from the 1950’s at the beginning of each chapter. I definitely recommend Cable Car Mystery if you like a good private eye mystery.

Tom is a middle-aged man who works in downtown Portland, Oregon. His wife is killed suddenly when her car is hit by a drunk driver. Tom goes into a period of isolation for almost two years; his life sinks into a time of grayness and gloom. Then, a bright light named Erika comes into his life. She is a dazzling young woman who he meets, quite by accident, at the coffee shop which he frequents each morning. Tom and Erika have an instant connection. They formulate a plan to become companions and to begin enjoying all of their interests again but as platonic friends. They are both tired of being alone but do not want to play all of the dating games. As the year progresses, Tom and Erika become more and more comfortable with each other thanks to a series of unexpected crisis that ensue. Tom is falling more deeply in love with Erika each day. Erika continues to take it slow and wants to be just friends. Tom keeps his love for her a secret as he patiently waits for Erika to want more from their relationship.

** SPOILER ALERT ** Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book. I almost felt like I could relate to some of the characters and I loved some of the detail that was put into describing the people and places. I also loved some of the ideas that came from the author. I'd never head that men were like bananas. That was a new one. Haha...
I do have to say that I felt a little frustrated at the end. I confess that I am all about the sappy, cheesy endings and know that this is probably how reality would be, but was still surprised by how the author chose to end this story. I felt frustrated for Tom, and for me having read this whole book about how much he cared about Ericka just to have it all end. But looking past that, I still was engrossed in the book and am recommending it to some friends.

I enjoyed the dialogs in this book. The conversations seemed very real. That might not make sense, but I really enjoyed the "realness" of this book. I loved the way Portland is described and brought to life. I felt that Mr. Messel really does have a keen insight into life and love. The book kept me intrigued, not wanting to put it down until I got to the end. Oddly enough, I was not surprised at the ending. I believe it shows us about the reality of life and that not everything has a fairy-tale ending, yet life can still be good as we learn and grow from all our life experiences. Read it!

I read a lot enjoying all types of books. This book is great for reading on a lazy afternoon. I especially loved the chapters where the main character expresses his feelings about having lost his wife and his quest for trying to start over. I have never visited some of the local spots of interest mentioned in the book and it made me want to visit the Portland area or maybe even live there! I loved the ending of this book and contrary to many who might want to guess at the ending it was a pleasant surprise. I would recommmend this book to others who enjoy a conflicted character who is easy to like. I wanted him to succeed in his quest of finding a new life. I would recommend this book to friends.
