‘The Very Thought of You’ was my first read of Andy Conway’s. Frankly, it was inexpensive, and sounded intriguing so I bought the e-book. What a wonderful surprise awaited me, I couldn’t put it down. The relationship between the two men of different generations was clearly defined and went from mistrust to a kind of kinship. Then of course there’s the hauningly mysterious lady… is she a ghost, a figment of his imagination, why does he only see her sometimes? Hmmm! Buy the book and find out!!! But be prepared for a stellar ending! My only complaint about this read… Not long enough…Please Mr. Conway, could we have some more sir:-)
“I am quite a fan of suspense, mystery, intrigue and supernatural elements in stories, and this delivers on all aspects… I couldn’t put it down! Finished it in almost one sitting.”
“I can totally believe the premise of this story. A nursing home patient of mine, had a picture of her husband on the wall of her room. Dressed in the highly starched collar of the 30′s, his quiet gaze into her room gave visitors a glimpse of what their life might have been. In not wanting to give away any spoilers, Mr. Conway tells an interesting story, that has a surprise at the end. Something I didn’t expect, but which always intrigues me when it happens.”
