Book Review: Photographic by K.D. Lovgren

Title: Photographic
Author: K.D. Lovgren
Published: 2013
Jane O'Reilly lives on a farm away from the paparazzi and press that's inherent with her husband's job. But, those two worlds are about to collide one early morning.

I had the pleasure and honor of reading this delightful debut novel. I absolutely loved it! There are so many parallels in motifs and themes between Photographic and The Odyssey. The motifs of storytelling and disguise, the theme of temptation.... The author did a fantastic job of exploring the grey area in a marriage -- where are the limits of right and wrong, especially when you add in the layers of disguise, temptation and storytelling? Fans of Jodi Picoult's work, Amy Hatvany and M.L. Stedman (The Light Between Oceans) will enjoy reading this novel, as well as anyone who appreciates Homer's The Odyssey. Rich in vocabulary, parallels, and layers, this is a deeply thought-provoking and brilliant first novel. I can't wait to read her next novel. Highly recommended.

Rating: 4.5 of 5.

Available at Amazon.
