Finding Hemingway by Ken Dortzbach

(Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book!)
about book:

Hyper-focused, overachieving New York lawyer Callie McGraw has six months between jobs and a hefty severance check when she is called to Spain by Ernest Hemingway. She begins packing her bags for the sun-kissed streets that night. Starting in Barcelona, Callie embarks on a six-month escapade of a lifetime, a whirlwind of Spanish food, wine, art and dancing, with a revolving cast of friends and lovers keeping her company in each new locale. Callie’s next cocktail is never far away, but Hemingway knows her secrets, the demons that plague her deep down. With each mysterious call and each enigmatic clue, Hemingway challenges her to open herself to laughter, passion and love. Ultimately, he defies Callie to face her greatest fears and embrace life on her own terms.

my thoughts:

Callie LOVES Hemingway. The Sun Also Rises is her jam. She is smitten with the author. So, she decides to head to Spain in search of Hemingway. Yep, Hemingway. Lots of wind and travel abound. And the more time Callie spends in Spain, the more she opens herself up.

What a fun and entertaining story! I really enjoyed reading about Callie's sojourn to Spain - it was an adventure and it was magical. I didn't care for Callie - she was selfish and immature and completely unbearable at times. And yet, I wanted to find out if her trip would change her - make her see that there life is not all about Callie. 

Finding Hemingway is a great book that will sweep you away for an interesting and unusual adventure. You will fall in love with Spain and Hemingway.

I would happily recommend Finding Hemingway to anyone and everyone looking for their next read - you will definitely enjoy this book!
