3.5 This is an emotional "roller coaster" ride.,
This review is from: The Traveling Man (The Traveling Series #1) (Kindle Edition)I have read several books by this author, and she is amazing; her plots are always well thought out, and her characters are unique and real, and this one was no different. I loved the first half of this read, when Aimee and Kes were building their bond and the precious connection they had as children. But the emotion, turmoil, misunderstandings and angst that followed was too much for me and almost overshadowed the relationship between our two main characters. There were times that I felt that Aimee was more immature and childish than Kes, but I know that love can make us do crazy, childish things. Kes has a hard time verbalizing his feelings, and not knowing more of his background and pain, it's hard to know where all his issues stem from, but it is easy to see why he is broken. I invested so much in this story, that the ending just left me deflated. Yes, it knew that this is a serial read, but I was emotionally drained and frustrated. I have no idea how this will all play out, but I... Read more

Jane did it again!! 5 Magical stars!!,
This review is from: The Traveling Man (The Traveling Series #1) (Kindle Edition)What happen when your heart and your head telling you different things?
<b> love made no sense. It was cold and hard and didn't care how much it hurt you. </b>
By the first few pages, I was hooked. The story took you on a magical ride and I felt like I lost in the carnival and on the front seat of a roller coaster ride.
<b> "And you're at a crossroads. You're wondering which way to go - towards safety, or towards love." </b>
From the moment Aimee met Kes she knew loving him won't be easy. He's too difficult, too dangerous, too unrestrained and wild. But often our heart won over our head.
The story makes you follow their journey from childhood into adulthood where life throws them a lot of twist and turn. Their relationship wasn't smooth sailing. Too many obstacles and how different their world apart. So when life offers second chance what would you do?
The struggles and emotions of Aimee and Kes's... Read more

WOW, Brilliant, Amazing, the best book so far I have read in 2015,
This review is from: The Traveling Man (The Traveling Series #1) (Kindle Edition)WOW this book is brilliant. I wish I could give it 10 Stars.
Jane has proven once again what a great author she is with this story. You name it; this book has it, empathy, laughter, love, angst and the right amount of drama. The story is so well written in this book that I guarantee you will not be able to put it down.
The characters, Kes and Aimee feel so real that you follow along in a somewhat dream like quality feeling as if you are right there with them, going through everything they are and it was a joy, privilege and pleasure to read this ARC.
The first part of the story concentrates on these characters as children and watch how they interact as they grow up. Instantly becoming close friends who only see each other each year when the Carnival comes to town.
Aimee who has never seen a Carnival before is ecstatic at being allowed to see the show for her 10th birthday. The excitement that she has comes out so well in this book, you... Read more
