The Traveling Man by Jan Harvey-Berrick Blog Tour + Giveaway


Title: The Traveling Man (Traveling, #1)
Author: Jane Harvey – Berrick
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance




I was ordinary. Nice. He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice. Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t.

Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path. Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life. As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough.

Selene's Review

5 Smooches

I was on the journey before I even knew our story had started.
Funny the way things work out.

I am IN LOVE with this story!!!!

I wasn't really sure what to expect going in but if I did actually have expectations, they would have certainly been blown away.

I adore love stories that begin when the MC's are young, they grow up together and their feelings eventually turn romantic.  Relationships like that just GRAB me from the get-go.
I didn't know it then;  I didn't understand what it meant, but whenever I looked at him, my skin felt warm, like my own personal sun was shining just for me.  - Aimee
The setting of this story is so unique (to me anyway).  I've never read a story set primarily in a carnival environment before this and I found it captivating.  There were many things you'd expect having only a "stereotypical" idea of what a carnie lifestyle might be like.  Since the story is "carnie-centric," Aimee is the outsider seeking approval most of the story which I find to be an interesting twist!
"I felt almost accepted as I strutted along beside them, my head held high.  I was Kes's girlfriend, and I wanted everyone to know it."  - Aimee
The thing I love most about this story .... it's Aimee's love for Kes.  It's unconditional, it's innocent, it's whole-hearted.  It's consuming.  And it consumed me.  Kes suffers from a learning disorder but Aimee sees past it and sees the man Kes is despite it.  GAHHHH!!!!!  I couldn't get enough.

So, imagine my surprise when there is a cliffhanger.  YES!!!  A cliffhanger.  Now I RARELY encourage anyone to start a series before it is complete but I will totally make an exception for The Traveling Man.  The story is so very unique ... I just can't imagine anything about it being forgotten for the second installment is released.
