Blind Side By William Bayer - Blast In The Past Review

         When I read Blind Side over 20 years ago in hardcover, there was a money back guarantee that said that I could return the book if I didn’t like it. Have to say that I didn’t return the book. 

           It’s extremely rare that I’ll read a book a second time but when I saw that this was available on Kindle for $2.99, I thought why not. I didn’t remember the book and thought it would be a great read again. 

           Of course, all the memories came back. Still, crafting a story based on a relationship between 2 people only to have so many obstacles twists and turns that leave you hanging with an ending that will be a surprise. Of course, it’s not the surprise ending you would see in a Nicholas Sparks novel. 

            In this case, Geoffrey Barnett is a photographer who is suffering from a trauma until he meets a woman that would change his life. It happened one day while he was taking pictures. The only question was was it fate or was the meeting deliberate. 

             From there, Geoffrey is caught in a web of lies where he doesn't know who to believe or who to trust. The plot moves along nicely since Geoffrey's is on a quest to find out if his relationship with his girlfriend was real or fake. 

              I’ve read most of the William Bayer novels, including the ones that he wrote as David Hunt. The stories were good but not as good as this one. He is at his best here. 

               If there is one book that is worth saying that this is a five star review book that you won’t be able to put down, this is the one. No cell phones. No internet. Just a photographer who is trying to get his life together and gets involved in an unforgettable relationship. 

                It’s quite a story. Don’t miss it.
