Blog Tour 'Chasing What's Already Gone' by Michael Ross


Today I’m excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Chasing What’s Already Gone’ by Michael Ross. This is a Romance/ Comedy novel that was published on July 26th.  


About the Book:


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30811311-chasing-what-s-already-goneDanny Pearson is cruising through life on the edge of contentment—even in his marriage…

His wife seems distant, yet perfectly happy. They work on different schedules and pass like ships in the night. But that’s how marriage is after so many years, right?

When Danny meets a mysterious girl, his idea of the meaning of love shatters at his feet…

She’s not extraordinary, but somehow she’s so much more than just another girl. When he catches her gaze, he knows deep in his gut that she’s the one—the love of his life. But being a decent guy, he holds his feelings in check, and there is no ulterior motive when he shares a coffee with her. As she leaves, she gives him a business card. That's all there is to it.

Her name is Ella. And after that, she is nothing more than a fond memory.

Danny puts Ella out of his mind and moves on with his life—until his world falls apart…When his wife confesses to having an affair and demands a divorce, his life is thrown into chaos. It’s a challenge adjusting to the single life, but it’s not impossible. As time passes, he continues to reminisce of his brief encounter with the woman he’s sure was his chance at true happiness.

How far is Danny willing to go in the pursuit of love? How far would you when, in all probability, you are only…

My Review:


When I was approached for the Blog Tour of ‘Chasing What’s Already Gone’ by Michael Ross a view weeks ago, I was immediately fascinated by the book description. This book sounded different, since it was written from a man’s point of view and it sounded like a lot of fun. So I signed up as fast as I could, and started reading.

‘Chasing What’s Already Gone’ is from the very beginning, a very easy to follow story. Danny is a married guy, who isn’t in a happy marriage. His wife is just a total witch and Danny can’t do anything good. When Danny meets the eyes of a woman passing by, he is sure she is the love of his life. But Danny is married, and he is a decent guy so he tries to forget about ‘Ella’. Like I said.. Easy to follow. And this book totally made me feel relaxed.

There were a view little things that didn’t really work for me. The main character Danny is something else. He isn’t very manly if you ask me. His wife is just nasty, and he just doesn’t really do anything about it. I found it a little frustrating to be honest. I wanted to scream at Danny several times, and just tell him to man the hell up. Sigh.. But still this book kept me hooked. At times it was a little unbelievable though. Danny is looking for ‘Ella’ and BAM.. sees her on television. Stuff like that just doesn’t seem believable to me.

But for the most part this book was really enjoyable. I really liked most characters, there was a lot of humor and it was just a fun story to read. The author had a really descriptive way of writing, which I found easy to read.

Yes, this book would be a perfect beach or vacation read.

About the Author:


It was a strange and twisting road that led to the publishing of my second novel.

Born and raised in Bristol, England. I spent my adult life in business, the majority of that time marketing cars. I eventually owned the largest Saab specialist in the world, before a divorce put an end to that part of my life.

This led me to leave Bristol to live halfway up a mountain in the Welsh valleys, start a part time six year English Literature course at Bristol University, and attend creative writing classes in Cardiff.

My interest in English literature flourished and I have won several prizes for my short stories. My first book, 'Twenty Short Stories – Settling a score,” reached No 6 in the Short Stories Best Sellers and is still available. My second novel, a romantic thriller entitled Hand Over Fist was released earlier this year

Chasing What’s Already Gone evolved from a short story Carpe Diem in my second anthology Twenty One Short Stories. I could not get the two main characters out of my head and I had to find out what happened to them after the end of the short story.

I now live very happily halfway up that mountain in the Welsh Valleys with my wonderful partner, Mari, and our rescue dog, Wolfie.
