  • Satire/Mystery

    Soulmates is a standalone, satirical mystery novel written by Jessica Grose. Through the use of satire, this story features elements of New Age spirituality, the yoga culture, meditation practices, and how a stereotypical cult may operate/manipulate. The whole subject felt like one big internal chuckle and eye roll while you listen to a brand new duped fanatic talk about their amazing life discovery...and that's exactly how this novel is supposed to feel. On a non-satirical note, I found a real life lesson in watching the disintegration of a marriage. It's easy to expect that all the work we put into a new relationship will carry us through the long-haul but that's so far from the truth. The seasoned relationship is the one that requires the most nurturing. Like a garden, you can never stop caring for it or it will not continue to grow. Pay attention, show interest, be supportive, everyday remember why you chose that person, and grow your love ♥ My favorite quote: "When you have a partner that supports you fully, you can go places physically and metaphysically that you did not think were possible. You can walk right up to the edge of darkness, stare into the abyss and know someone is there to catch you if you fall."

    SOULMATES, by Jessica Grose, is an unusual book presented through narration, newspaper articles, and different points of view. The book opens as associate lawyer, Dana Morrison, sees a newspaper with her estranged husband's name on the front page. The article tells about the bizarre death of her husband and his girlfriend in a New Mexico cave. Though she's still upset from when Ethan ran off with Amaya to practice yoga and live the lifestyle promoted by a self-proclaimed guru, Lama Yoni, Ethan's mysterious death concerns her. So begins her quest to find out what truly happened to him. Dana contacts the sheriff's department having jurisdiction over Zuni Retreat, where Ethan and Amaya taught couples yoga. The staff can't give her much information, as Lama Yoni's high-powered lawyers have prevented the sheriff's office from ever visiting the Zuni complex. So Dana decides to sign up for a three-day stay at the retreat to discover whatever she can about the owner and what might have happened to her husband. In the Zuni library, she finds a book written by Ethan describing why he separated from her. Dana acknowledges the problems he saw in her, while also realizing Ethan was a free-loading narcissist. She also believes something's shady about the Zuni Retreat. Once back at work, Dana no longer has any motivation to work the long hours needed to become partner in her firm and takes a six-month sabbatical to delve into a lengthly investigation into Ethan's life at Zuni and his unexplained death in New Mexico. Pros: For the most part, the story is funny and not boring at all. The story is told through several different writing techniques. The characters are well-developed with unique quirks and relatable flaws. Cons: The ending. It didn't mesh with what I thought I knew about Dana's character. Overall: SOULMATES is a unique mystery full of quirky characters. I would recommend it to readers who prefer character-driven stories and/or those who enjoy mysteries. It's also a perfect book to take on vacation or for a relaxing weekend at home.
