Hold on to your seat – “A Work in Progress” is an exhilarating ride”

Fast paced, ‘A Work in Progress’ will make you late for supper and keep you up way past your bedtime – you will not want to put it down until the last page is turned. Well developed characters and a plot with many twists and turns make this thriller a winner.

The main character, Jeremy Jackson, is a financial wizard, so to speak. How

A Work in Progress piqued my curiousity so I entered the first-reads giveaway and to my surprise I'm a winner! :) This is a story about a man who's life takes an unexpected turn and tries to piece it together. It kept my interest with twists in the story line when you least expect it. Enjoyed reading it.

Once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. Very readable and provocative. Well-written and compelling. The big world of investments is revealed through a twisting and turning plot that leaves you anxious to solve the puzzle and unlock the mystery. A very good read.

I feel like I received an earlier draft of this book that the other reviewers! If I were a quitter, I would have stopped reading before finishing the first 12 pages as they were riddled with grammatical errors. However, I always finish a book I start. Then the story was developed without problems until around page 100 when problems arose again. The grammatical errors really distracted from the story line. Then around page 175 the story went well again without distractions until the end.

I got this through Goodreads Giveaways.

I agree mostly with Sandy from below. I think this is an earlier, unfinished copy.

However, I couldn't get into it. Past 60 pages, and I still didn't connect or identify with Jeremy, and there was no plot yet. I spent the majority of the time skimming pages until I realized, I should just stop.

The writing isn't bad. It's probably one of those situations where it's really the book for you, or it really isn't.

I may try a different novel by this author at a la

I really enjoyed this book! Twists and turns in the plot kept me turning the pages. I found myself liking and admiring Jeremy Jackson, family man, sucessful business man, caught in a whirlwind of events over which he has little control. I had to keep reading, not only to find out what happens next, but to find out why.

The plot was fine, I just had issues with the writing style, which I thought was repetitive with its description and used too many exclamation marks. I was gutted that it's probably going to be a series, as I was hoping I'd have it all out of the way today.
