    Book Review

Reviewed by Jessyca Garcia for Readers' Favorite

If there was a way to give Another Sunset by Jason Zandri more than five stars, then I would. This book was an inspirational and, at the same time, very emotional read. When David Stephenson, a drifter, arrives in the small town of Westville, Texas, he sets about helping the people there. David focuses on making a little girl’s dream come true. While he is there, he touches the lives and hearts of Westville’s residents. The people of Westville are not sure where David came from, but they know he is hiding something and are set to uncover his secret.

I have never read a book with so many inspirational quotes in it. Another Sunset is filled with them. One of my favorite quotes was: “Life happens while you’re busy making other plans. You have to grab onto it when you can and ride it for all its worth.” At first I thought David was an angel sent to the town to restore its faith in humanity. Reading on, I knew David was running or hiding from something. Zandri does an awesome job of not revealing too much of what David is hiding until the very end. Caroline Romero is a little girl with a big dream. The dream she has was very mature for her age and it made me wonder how many towns are forgotten about like Westville. It is rare for me to like all the characters in a book, but I did with Another Sunset. In fact I got emotionally attached to them. I admit this book actually made me cry at some point in it. I cannot blame it on hormones, but I can blame it on Zandri for forcing me to love his characters that much.

Jason Zandri has written a prequel to Another Sunset named Before Another Sunset. If it is anything like Another Sunset then it is also a must-read. I will be recommending Another Sunset to everyone I know.

Another Sunset by Jason Zandri has its beginning in a happy young drifter, David, choosing Westville, a small town, as his abode. His industrious nature, carefree attitude and pleasant outlook endears him to all, more so to Caroline and her mother, Maria. His deep involvement with the local populace with new ideas, and the readiness to join hands with Caroline in her adolescent dreams, make him an inseparable part of the small crowd. Over time, despite his vagueness about where he's from and his life before Westville, he comes completely accepted as "one of their own" in the community. Then, as suddenly as he arrived, he leaves unannounced, leaving the people that came to love him at a loss as to why and causing them to continue on without him.

Another Sunset by Jason Zandri has a very good plot and an enthralling narrative that is formed by weaving the significant and the trivial together. The content and the delivery of Zandri’s prose make his tale hard to put down. Each and every one of his characters comes out as a strong personality with their independent canvas and colorful presence. An authentic dialogue, which resonates in the midst of tastefully conceived characters, adds to the complexity that underpins his plot. One thing I must mention though, the personal tragedies the hero did face in his life seemed to be a little too much. Notwithstanding that, this is an excellent book, a real page turner of a novel.

Another Sunset (The Sunset Series Book 2) by Jason Zandri is about David Stephenson, a drifter who has a kind heart and finally starts to settle down when he reaches Westville, Texas. The town may be small and failing, but it welcomes David with open arms. While David is in Westville, he aids a small girl who is trying to make a dream come true. In doing this, he gets the entire town ready to help as well. When fate takes an interesting turn, David's good friend asks a local reporter to unwrap the mystery of why David started his drifting journey.

This is a very interesting story that has rich backdrops and characters as well. David is a good man, but he doesn't like to share his past with anyone. David doesn't even like to share information about his past with friends. I really felt a connection with David and I liked his empathy and willingness to help people throughout the story. The story here is very well paced and superbly written by author Jason Zandri in a unique style. There are several different twists in this book and it guarantees that you will never be bored. I haven't read the first book in the series, but I feel that this book can stand alone with its own rich detailing. If you are looking to read a truly heart warming tale that has been well written and is rich in every way, this is going to be a read you will enjoy.
