Chasing Rainbows by Kathleen Long



Chasing Rainbows
by Kathleen Long
(Kindle Edition, Fiction)

Synopsis taken from Goodreads:  What's that saying about the devil you know? For Bernie, it's the devil she never expected that changes everything.

Her father's sudden death leaves a gaping void in her life and is one in a series of events that rock her world. Her husband leaves for another woman, and her best friend announces an unplanned pregnancy at the age of forty-one. Bernie's behavior goes from acting out to out-of-hand, and she finds herself in trouble at home, out of work and banned from the mall after a confrontation at the cosmetic counter.

When her mother discovers her father's book of cryptograms, Bernie realizes his encoded lessons in living might be exactly what she needs to survive. From dealing with her family's grief and bonding with her best friend's thirteen-year-old daughter, to dieting, dating and mindless almost-sex with the landscaper, Bernie discovers what her father always knew.

In life, you either choose to sing a rainbow, or you don't.  For Bernie, the singing is about to begin.

My thoughts:  Chasing Rainbows is about a woman who is dealing with so many issues throughout the book, until the end when she chooses to go through life in a positive way.  The story line was easy to follow but this book didn't captivate me like other books have, it held my interest but it became very repetitive and I found it difficult to relate to Bernie and all her problems.
