Release Day Review ~ Plummet to Soar by Z.A. Maxfield

Release Day Review ~ Plummet to Soar by Z.A. Maxfield

Title: Plummet to Soar

Author: Z.A. Maxfield
Release Date: May 8, 2018
Category: Contemporary
Pages: 192

Feckless, luckless, and charming, Mackenzie Detweiller is the author of a self-help book one reviewer calls “the most misbegotten motivational tool since Mein Kampf. He’s maneuvered himself into a career as a life coach, but more often than not, his advice is bad. Really bad.
It’s even getting people hurt… and Mackenzie sued.
It falls to Mackenzie’s long-suffering acquisitions editor, JD Chambers, to deliver the bad news. He chooses to do so face-to-face—to see if the spark he senses between them is real when they’re together in the flesh. Unfortunately, a snowstorm, a case of nerves, a case of mistaken identity, and finally a murder get in the way of a potential enemies-to-lovers romance.
There are many, many people who have good reason to want Mackenzie dead. JD must find out which one is acting on it before it’s too late for both of them.

So, this book is nothing that I expected and it’s entirely my fault for jumping at the chance to read this because it had murder in the book description. Honestly, I’m not even sure where to start with this book.

There are A LOT of characters in this book from the first page and it was so confusing. One of the MC’s is a life coach and has a lot of internal dialogue that is confusing and sounded like what I’d imagine the thinking of a stoned hippy would be. He nicknamed people in his self-help group but sometimes referred to them by name if he remembered. So I struggled to know if a character was a new one, or one he’d already been calling by a different name. And Mackenzie has a lot of internal dialogue. He’s attracted to a guy at his self-help group, but he can’t go there because of his never met before editor, who may or not have gone missing. When the guy who caught Mackenzie’s eye introduces himself, he lies about who he is and why he’s there but his reasoning is confusing, as is this whole story. But, fortunately, turns out the editor is not missing but has turned up and lied about who he is.

Before buying and diving into this book, I strongly suggest reading the book description. I didn’t pay attention to the description until writing this review, but it has a reference that had I read it, I wouldn’t have read it. Personally, this book didn’t work for me but it’s definitely one you need to read and decide for yourself.

Rating: 3 stars
