The Man Painter by Melissa Turner Lee

(Isn't the cover AMAZING?! I wish MY hair did that LOL)


Theo keep from each other in the start of their relationship could mean the death of either of them. Fritz holds all the cards, and raises the stakes in this deadly, more adult conclusion of The Painter Series.

My Thoughts:
This book had me going through so many emotions that someone would swear I had multiple personalities! I love the writing style of the author, and how she creates characters that are so easy to relate to. As one of the editors of the book, I "might" be a bit biased, but this is one great story. Holly and Theo go through so many trials that every chapter leaves you wondering what is going to happen next. the contributions from the Sciences had me in stitches at moments. Although I'm sad to see the series end, the story was so well played out that you don't really need more. I do, however, want to read more from the author! If you like light romance, action, and comical banter, this is the series for you :)

Author Bio:
I'm a stay-at-home mom of three of the CRAZIEST boys ever. And I love them to bits. I'm also a wife to a wonderful man I met when I was 17. He went to a different High School than I did but we both worked at McDonald's. It was before texting and cell phones so we'd write notes at school and exchange them at work. We'd also talk to each other over the drive-thru headsets. Then he told me he had a picture he had drawn for art class long before he knew me that his cousin pointed out looked just like me. The picture went missing when we got married and moved into our first home together. This was kind of the inspiration for The Earth Painter.

I have a degree in Journalism and Marketing which I have never used because I've been home with my boys. Then one day my man sent me to the local book store for a day to myself. I picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer and my life changed. I remembered being 17. I remembered falling in love. But most of all I remembered ME. I'd become "Mommy" and forgotten all about Melissa, the girl who dreamed of being a writer, but suddenly I remembered and the writing started. And It hasn't stopped.
