A Cold Piece of Work by Curtis Bunn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A Cold Piece of Work is an interesting tale on relationships and redemption from a man’s prospective. You meet the main character Solomon Singletary who has hurt many women in his day. Opportunity arises where the one woman he has hurt; Michele Williams shows back up in his life through a third party. Once Solomon is truthful with himself, he realizes it is the one woman he still loves.
How does one seek redemption and forgiveness when there are so many unanswered questions as to how and why? It is battle that you will see both Solomon and Michele experience. Solomon opens up his heart and his mind to his truths. The question is will the couple be able to move on?
The author does a great job of exposing Solomon Singletary as a hurt man. He gives us a raw and honest look at how some men view relationships, family, and love. Men also get a look into how sometimes, as women, it is not easy for us to forgive and forget because you want us to.
You will go through a range of emotions except disappointment as you read the drama that unfolds on these pages. Each character’s role was well -developed and realistic. This is definitely a book that opens up discussions in book clubs or male/female relationship panels.
I also appreciate the fact that the author briefly touched on two topics that are difficult for families to discuss: homosexuality and disciplining children. Read this novel with an open mind. Although it is entertaining, it will also stimulate your mind.
