Blog Tour Review: A Good Kind of Knowing by Kathy Lynn Harris

Book Synopsis

Good Kind of Knowing is a novel about the power of music and friendship, the relationship two-steps that go on in old Texas dancehalls, and the secret to finding just a little bit of common ground in a world full of distrust.

Sera Taylor's store is the one place in Lakeville, Texas, where individuals from all walks of life share a universal love for music and a respect for the gypsy-like woman behind the antique glass counter. Readers get a taste of the unorthodox connection between Sera and Mack, a young local cowboy and musician, and Sera’s previously untested devotion to her husband Bill. They learn of her relationship with Ruby D., the vibrant but misguided mother of five; with Louie, the shy high school band director; with Beverly, the religious, upper-class socialite; with Antonio, a local bar owner striving to make a life for himself; with Tommy Lee, a rich and directionless gigolo; and with Wes, the only out-of-the closet gay man for miles. As Sera battles a serious illness, the characters must overcome long-held stereotypes to save Sera’s store, and in the end, large parts of themselves.

A Good Kind of Knowing by Kathy Lynn Harris is a truly gentle and inspiring love story. The characters really drive the plot with their array of character traits, quirks and interwoven lives. The relationships between the characters are lovely to follow as well as entertaining.

There are many humourous, witty moments in the novel that had me smiling and several tender moments that allowed me to bond with the collection of characters. This was all possible because of Kathy Lynn Harris' meticulous craft and character development and interaction.

The plot moved a little slow for me at times, hence holding back from 5 stars, yet I'm sure readers who enjoy tender romances and stories that are driven by friendships and relationships would rate it higher.

A lovely and somewhat emotional 4 fluttering fairies!
