Blog Tour-Review and Giveaway: Finding Fisher by Dakota Madison

New Adult Contemporary Romance
Date Published: March 2. 2015

Finding Fisher is a short novel about love, lies, loyalty and what it means to be truly alive. 
Franklin Smith was the perfect fiancé. He was at the top of our class at Stanford and had been recently accepted to Harvard Law. But Spring Break our senior year of college changed everything. He went back home to New Jersey and never returned. At his funeral I discovered a guy I never knew. His secret past. And a twin brother, Fisher, I didn’t know existed. 
Author’s Note: When I learned about the tragic death of cover model Josh Nicholson and saw the wonderful photos that Eric McKinney of 6:12 Photography had taken of Josh I just knew I had to write a book in his memory. This is the novel that Joshua Scott Nicholson inspired.

A portion of the profits from the cover and book sales will be donated to Joining Hearts, Inc., a 501(c)(3), all-volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to providing housing support to people living with HIV and AIDS in Atlanta, in memory of Josh.

My Review

I found Finding Fisher to be a quick and easy read.  The story moves extremely fast, and does have two main characters that fall for each other almost from the start.

I had a very difficult time trying to connect with Chloe, the main female character.  She's had everything handed to her by her parents, and even her friends think she has the perfect life.  When she finds out about her fiancé's death, the way she reacts is very low-key with hardly any emotion--very odd for someone you supposedly love enough to marry.  Fisher's character is down-to-earth, sweet and very likable, and he's my favorite from this book, though he doesn't really seem to show much emotion concerning his brother's death either.

The two of them fall for each other so fast, it just feels off-especially for Chloe, who you'd expect to be mourning her fiancé's passing.  If you're a fan of insta-love stories, then this will be totally up your alley as it fits that description perfectly.
