BioNeven Carr lives in what she terms is an author’s haven; a quaint fishing village on the east coast of Queensland, Australia. Her former years as a Primary School teacher provided her with many life experiences, some treasured, some not so treasured, but ones she continually draws upon when writing her novels. Neven Carr now devotes her time to her three passions, her family, reading and of course, writing.
Forgotten is her debut novel.
Everyone has a past. Everyone has memories good and bad. Claudia Cabriati has no memory of her first eight years of life. Some things are etched in memory such as the stench of death. Claudia smells death in her apartment. The odour evokes memories of her Papa and Nona and a time she was called Carina. The past is best forgotten until conspiracy and murder brings it back.
Claudia Cabriati keeps you on your toes as you follow her through the book. Well written and real page turner.
The protagonist is easy to relate to, living what she thinks is an ordinary life, down to earth, with a sense of humor. Colorful, unique details about her physical reactions and her surroundings, using all the senses, draw me into her situation right away with the hook of a mystery - what smells like a dead body. This novel doesn't mess around with expository, just jumps right into the action like entertainment should. When new delightful characters are introduced, I bond with them too. Masterfully written prose, graceful and urgent.
