Review of The Art of Going Home, The Art of Living Duet Book One by Nicole Sorrell



Maddie dreads going home to face memories of her twin, who was murdered at the age of ten. But she must return to the tiny town after a decade to attend a funeral. As it turns out, the haunting reminders of her sister are the least of her worries…

Not given details of the drowning at the time, Maddie is persuaded to solve the mystery by tracking down the killer. As waves of suppressed childhood memories come crashing forward, Maddie begins to doubt everything she once believed. And everybody she thought she could trust.

Including Zac, her high school crush. Though she can’t find the strength to resist their powerful attraction, Maddie isn’t sure she can forgive his betrayal. As she comes to grips with her family’s past and forgives those who deceived her, the horrifying discovery of who killed her sister may heal old wounds… or scar her forever.

With poignancy and clarity, The Art of Going Home examines a young woman’s personal struggle to face her vulnerabilities and accept the love of a man who holds the key to her happiness. It is a testament to the real meaning of family and the enduring strength of a sister’s bond.

Please note: Contains mature content. This is the second edition which includes editorial revisions.

My Review:

The Art of Going Home, The Art of Living Duet Book One by Nicole Sorrell

This first installment is incredible. The author gives you love, grief, mystery, suspense and a glimpse into the paranormal. The promise of a storyline that catches your attention and refuses to let go. A must read!

Maddie comes back to her hometown, after an absence of ten years, to attend the funeral of her beloved Aunt Cecilia. What she finds when she arrives is the voice of her deceased twin, asking Maddie to help solve her murder. As I continued to get caught up in the mystery, I kept thinking I knew who the killer had to be. Oh, how wrong I was!

Follow Maddie through her journey of not only finding a killer, but maybe herself in the process.
