VBT: Down at the Golden Coin

BLURB: How would your life change if you met your Messiah at the laundromat?

During the horrible recession, DOWN AT THE GOLDEN COIN’s main character, former airline pilot Annie Mullard, feels she has sunk to new low when she is forced to go to a run-down laundromat, The Golden Coin, after her washing machine breaks, but it’s here she meets a messiah named Violet. Even though she can read minds, send Annie into past lives and levitate Tide with Bleach Alternative, Violet isn’t anyone’s idea of a messiah. But Violet is equipped with the wisdom, love and humor to help Annie find a way to a more authentic life, one in which Annie’s free to create her own reality and where money is not the key to happiness.

Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS

Review; You never know who is going to be the one to help change your life when all else fails. Annie is down on her luck, at a crossroads, and struggling with many things.  In the form of quirky Violet, Annie's world is about to change....

Kim Strickland has a lighthearted tone in her writing, and this book was quite enjoyable. I loved the messages that were part of this book. The characters really brought the story to life, and the plot moved along well. It's a quick but fun read. I'm glad I had the pleasure of getting this book for review. I'm interested in what else this author has to offer.
