    Love AND Intrigue!

    Life must go on after a spouse dies, even if he is murdered. Michele Lopez Hanson knows this “Fighting for Anna,” by Pamela Fagan Hutchins opens with Michele and her two teenagers arriving at the site only to come face to face with a crazed, white floppy haired little dog running frantically around them… in an obvious attempt to get them to follow him- Suddenly, Michele recognizes the pup- Gertrude, the small dog belonging to her*neighbor.* as the crow flies. Michele insists on pursuing the white furry dog/guide.Her visiting children, Annabelle and Sam, join her. On the way there Michele shares Gidget’s request to Michele ... to write Gidget's memoir. After clawing through an near impassable terrain bordering the two areas, they arrive at Gidget’s modest dwelling. A quick look inside reveals Gidget on the floor- seemingly unconscious- possibly dead. Things happen quickly then- 911 is called, paramedics arrive, and police begin questioning… the “all too familiar” goings on of death- natural and otherwise. Michele had lost her mother just weeks before. Upon receiving the clearance to leave the scene, Michele has no idea that the promise she made to Gidget just a few months ago to help her write her memoir would suddenly turn into an inherited estate ... with Michele in charge of unraveling Gidget’s (who we now know is Anna) past! Thus Fighting for Anna takes hold. What follows next is why readers flock to Hutchins’ books. Hutchins writing is sharp, the plotline is well thought out, the characters well developed, romantic chemistry churns… and frankly, Hutchins is funny. Yes, integrated with the seriousness of discovering exactly what happened to Anna years ago after she left town and returned a broken woman, Hutchins entertains readers with the characters’ deep emotions and the real-life challenges each face. She digs past the surface fluff many of us carry around and in doing so endears us to Anna. We trust Hutchins and her faith in Michele’s gut instinct about Anna. Hutchins opens a vulnerable side many of us have after a profound loss- the reader walks the path with Michele. Then the reader cannot help but cheer on a budding romance felt belt between Michele and Rashidi, a Virgin Islander Michele met at best friend Katie’s wedding. This reminiscent moment brings delight to Michele #1 readers yet is not critical to the plotline in Fighting for Anna. On the contrary, not only do the new readers anxiously await the third and final book in the Michele series, they use this time to read Going for Kona, the first in the Michele series! Hutchins use of vivid details and Michele’s running self-narrative keep the reader glued to the storyline. Many different endings run through the reader’s mind with each page read. Not until the very last page does it all fall into place. Ah, the feeling of fulfillment one gets after finishing a good, no, a great book. Cannot wait for the next one, Pamela!
