There's Nothing Tepid about Hot Water by Erin Brockovich with CJ Lyons - Page 2
Back home in West Virginia, an attempt is made on her blind, diabetic grandmother’s life and her parents’ home (a hoarder’s paradise) is set afire. At times there seems to be too much happening in too short a time period—the murder attempt, the custody battle, the fire, AJ runs over a dead man, she’s in an auto accident, she wrestles an alligator, a nuclear meltdown is imminent, her son disappears, there’s a severe hurricane, and—oh yeah—she ruins her good shoes. We remind ourselves, “Hey, it’s fiction,” and rejoin the excitement.
What starts out as a good-but-leisurely read thanks to an interesting plot, good character development, and attitude turns into a wild, downhill race as AJ Palladino’s life becomes more complicated than she had ever imagined. And if things aren’t complicated enough, there’s her love life.
Hot Water is thrilling, amusing, and sometimes scary—in short, eminently readable. It is so good, it will have the uninitiated reader scrambling for Rock Bottom once out of Hot Water.
