When destiny calls, you need to pick up …

On the surface, Kristi Danielson has it all. She’s lifestyle coach to the rich and famous, has a bestselling book to her name and is described by her fans as “the veritable Queen of how to lead a fulfilling life”.

But the harsh truth is that Kristi has never practiced what she preaches. Her home life is a mess, her relationship with artist boyfriend, Tom, not much better – and now she has to redeem herself before all is lost.

At her wit’s end, Kristi is driven to seek out the help of Patrick Blakeslee, a tarot card reader and psychic medium, in an attempt to make sense of the mounting panic she’s feeling.

But Patrick’s visits have an unexpected effect on Kristi, leaving her with more questions than answers – and a life-changing decision to make.

Kristi is a life coach, a very famous one. The problem is she’s having a crisis. She feels unhappy, doesn’t know what she wants to do, is she in the right job? So she takes a four month break from the limelight to write a new book about discovering hereself.

To enable her to do this, she does the one thing she thought she would never do, contact a Tarot Reader to ask for guidance on her life’s journey. That Tarot Reader comes in the form of Patrick. Oh and then we have Tom, Kristi’s boyfriend who is a tortured artist and therein lies our love triangle!!

The story is told from dual points of view, mostly Kristi and Tom’s with Patrick’s thrown in here and there. Kristi is very easy to relate too, I too have had that moment of feeling lost and questioned my whole life, infact I think everyone does at some point, and I too have sought out help from a Tarot Reader! Kristi and Tom’s relationship…you get a sense as you go through that its just not quite ‘right’ , that they’re indebted to each other, bonded but not necessarily meant to be together and you hope beyond all hopes that Kristi comes to this conclusion herself.

I enjoyed reading this very much, it was a love story with a different spin, a realistic take on life and sensitively and accurately written!
