Lisa N Paul
Lisa N. Paul is a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, reader, writer, blogger, and self-proclaimed comedian—just not always in that order. Ever since she was a little girl, she has devoured books. Falling in love with the Sweet Valley High series at a young age drew Lisa to series books and inspired her to write her own. Thursday Nights is the first book in her Charistown series.
When not writing, Lisa can be found eating french fries and Godiva raspberry truffles, or hanging out with her husband and two sons.
Oh my – Lisa N. Paul’s latest release, Danny’s on Main was a seriously intense and emotional ride. Holy freaking love story.
When I started Danny and Julie’s story I wondered if when it was over, I would wish that I had read it before the other Charistown books or if it would be the perfect conclusion to a series that I’ve loved. The honest answer is that it was both.
The book opens twenty-eight years ago and it was fun to flashback to this couple as young adults. Danny and Julie have always been the backbone to the Charistown series – the support system that has helped lead their staff members aka ‘their kids’ through their own personal relationship issues. So it was incredible to step into their shoes, live through their own romantic circumstances and to learn how they became so wise as to always have the perfect advice.
Their journey was overwhelming and it took me longer than normal to finish reading it – I just couldn’t devour their story. Not because it was horrible or because it was written poorly…in fact it was the complete opposite of that.
Danny and Julie had an epic relationship and connection but beyond their love nothing about their life was easy. Some of their struggles, I personally knew and the author’s words captured how I felt in those instances. It was both amazing and difficult – it was as though Lisa was sharing my inner turmoil. Their plot resonated so strongly with me that at times I was unable to continue reading without needing a break.
It was insane how emotional I felt during my time with these characters. I laughed and I cried – I hurt when they hurt and I celebrated their achievements. It was spectacular writing.
The way the plot unfolded, I felt that Danny’s on Main complimented and completed the series by giving me the last story of the Charistown family while giving a bird’s-eye view of events I really experienced. As the book got closer to the present (when the various events of the other Charistown books would be) all I wanted to do was reread all the books in this series. And if I had not read those books, I would absolutely be purchasing them to read.
Overall, it was an awesome reading experience for me – the book made me feel and I loved it. Danny’s on Main is one story that I would definitely recommend others check out.
