Unmasking Maya

Ver their facades begin to crack She catches her first glimpse of the man behind the superhuman tech prodigy and he starts to see her as the woman she used to be But is this a good thing Once that last secret is revealed will it bring them closer together or will it tear them apart. This book review was originally posted on Chick Lit Chit Chat a gleeful gallop through the Chick Lit genre found at julievaleriecom Disclaimer I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review A Moment for Musing Reading is an intimate experience For one the decision to commit to a book when so much is competing for your attention is a decision only you can make for yourself Case in point Has anyone ever given you a book and insisted you read it and yet no matter your best intentions you just don t carve out the time It s not that you don t believe the book giver when he or she tells you the book is perfect for you you simply don t find the time to read it no matter your best intentions for personal reasons known or unknown to you Two selecting a particular book to read is an intimate decision Something takes place at both the conscious and the subconscious level when you hold a book in your hands evaluate it and then decide whether to read it Third the time you spend immersed in the story in it s setting and with the characters is very private By reading uietly to yourself you are transported into the story at an intimate level because the experiences you are having are happening privately to you Case in point Your husband or kids across the room don t know where you are or what s happening to you when you read a book Only you know thatAll that said I think one of the most delicious moments of reading intimacy comes when you see yourself in one of the characters That s what happened to me when I read Unmasking Maya by Libby MercerBook Review The main character Maya Kirkwood is an artist with a background in fashion But she s not a shallow label centric fashionista rather a down to earth spirit who loves and appreciates the beauty and craftsmanship of fabrics Without making this book review about me I have a background in fashion and textiles and have travelled the world studying textile design Because of this I felt an intimate connection to Maya as I read which really added to my enjoyment of this great bookMaya is a uirky independent entrepreneur making a name for herself in the art world of San Francisco If you enjoy the heroines of chick lit who have glamorous jobs in either fashion or publishing you ll really like reading Libby Mercer s book for the refreshing way she adapts this archetypical heroine into a character that is truly uniue and approachable Maya sleeps on a futon in a tiny apartment with no TV and no money but she strong in spirit overcomes adversity moves to a new city and starts a business She is easily inspired by her surroundings often loosing herself in the beauty of light coming through an expansive window And hey she can fashion a skirt out of a blanket in seconds flat What s not to love about thatInciting Incident Two very different personality types Derek Whitley the obsessive compulsive freak and Maya Kirkwood the artsy fartsy flake meet at an art exhibit featuring Maya s work As you d expect they don t hit it off right away as Derek doesn t hide his very neutral feelings toward Maya s work When Maya is commissioned to create and install some of her work at his company in Silicon Valley the two have the opportunity to get to know each other better and explore the possibility of becoming than just professional acuaintancesCharacters setting There are wonderful characters Lin especially at Derek s work and the atmosphere at his company feels like one big family which adds to the overall enjoyment of the book I found myself curious to learn about two characters and their situations Daisy and Sarah Connelly but I don t feel the writer should have spent any time on these characters than she did in this particular book rather it would be great if she wrote their situations out in a preuel to this book as that would certainly guarantee a book with an action packed plot The story is set in San Francisco and has a wonderful scene involving a carefree roll down a series of hills The writer does a great job at capturing the sights and sounds of the city and I suspect this book will sell well in indie bookstores across CaliforniaCentral conflict Both Derek and Maya have a backstory that complicates their attempts at intimacy Each must come to terms with their own personal history in order to move forwardOverall impression This is a delightful journey and a fun read with characters that are real and very likeable You ll wish they were friends of yours you ll wish you could meet up with them for a game of softball a cold beer and some buffalo wingsI will definitely read another book by Libby Mercer and this one Unmasking Maya was a refreshing 206 pages the perfect length to tell their story and a welcome word count for this chick lit reader setting out to read 52 chick lit books in 52 weeksHighly recommended Tell your friendsComplete Book Review can be found on my Chick Lit Chit Chat blog at julievaleriecom where I am reading and reviewing 52 chick lit books in 52 weeks
