I am an avid reader and love to bury my face in a good digital novel every night before bed.
Since we are basically stuck at home for the unforeseeable future and one can only watch so much Netflix – I wanted to write a quick book review for “Stay Forever” by Darcy Schroeder.
Before I jump into the book – I wanted to tell you how I found out about it. The Author, Darcy happens to live and work in Corpus Christi. I taught her oldest son math when I was at Incarnate Word Academy. We became acquaintances (well, how could we NOT – we both have the same name, spelled correctly, and we both started our careers in the news business). In 2018, I saw her post about it on social media and quickly downloaded her first book.
Darcy currently works in public relations at a local refinery but has a passion for fiction writing.
“Stay Forever” is a coming home story about a 30-something-year-old military veteran returning to his old high school stomping grounds for his twin brother’s wedding. Andrew does not want to be here — due to a tragedy that happened in his senior year of high school. While in town for the nuptials — Andrew is not only forced to deal with family issues, his sordid past, but also a mystery threatening the people he loves. During his short time in town, Andrew unexpectedly finds a reason that may make him change his mind and stay.
