Here’s what Mary Nale, editor of Attune Magazine, has to say about “The Adventures of Pebble Beach”:
“This is a woman’s story, no doubt about it. This is Barbara’s first novel and it’s so damned believable! Pebble’s inner dialog is the key to this book being a fantastic read.
Pebble could be you and she could be me.
Pebble lives in Copenhagen but she’s originally from the US, she has two sons and she’s recently divorced. She’s almost 45 and she’s struggling with the very same things every single woman has struggled with.”
Thanks Mary! I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed Pebble’s adventures so much!
Marie Als gave “The Adventures of Pebble Beach” 5 stars on Goodreads. She wrote:
“I just finished this very, very cool book (and I usually don’t say that about books).
I’ve read more than a few of the author’s books before and highly recommend them if you seek a “how to fix your life by fixing you” guide. But because the other books are very practical, but fun and accessible, I was curious to see how she’d do in the fiction genre. She did well indeed.
The story works, the characters are realistic and just as fucked up as you or me. It’s NOT a sermon it’s a story that has something to say. I literally just finished the book now, and all I can say is go get your own copy… You’ll be reading it again and again.
I already miss Pebble (main character), because she’s as lost as real people are but there’s hope without the cheesy over the top drama you usually get.
