    This is quite simply the most compelling book I have read in quite a long time View From the Sixth Floor is very well crafted, appealing and full of surprises The suspense kept me turning pages and the characters were so engaging to me that when it seemed to be heading toward an ending, it took another turn and I actually looked to see if it was near the end The percent bar on my kindle registered 59% done and my reaction was, Good There s , a lotThere was, and all of it satis This is quite simply the most compelling book I have read in quite a long time View From the Sixth Floor is very well crafted, appealing and full of surprises The suspense kept me turning pages and the characters were so engaging to me that when it seemed to be heading toward an ending, it took another turn and I actually looked to see if it was near the end The percent bar on my kindle registered 59% done and my reaction was, Good There s , a lotThere was, and all of it satisfying, full of moments of worry about characters I had come to care for and moments to cheer when they rose to cope with crises.One bet I made with myself as I sat down to write this review was to check once it was posted I promise not to cheat but I am curious I want to see just how many Americans of a certain age who also reviewed it took a moment to share where they were and what they were doing when they heard about the Kennedy assassination I m expecting a lot of people will, it s a wound that left scars I was a freshman in a Southern California high school French class I remember one French teacher who had been in the underground resistance in Nazi occupied Belgium as a boy came out of his class to ours to confer with our French teacher who was from Dallas The words coup d etat were mentioned with a certain anxiety At the time I wondered if that was some kind of European, paranoid way of looking at the situation Considering the way our society has been changed since that day, those words resonate differently to me now Paranoia strikes deep sorry, anything to do with the 60s brings out my song quoting reflex.This is one of those books I had to tell friends about It was that good I don t want to ruin the suspense for anyone by saying much

    A MUST READ, BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN What a story Fifty years ago, I wasn t even blip on my mother s radar, but this novel certainly made me think hard about the political scandals back then and ask myself what secrets and skeletons do the people that worked for the government still keep locked away and how many innocent people lost everything because of it I will probably never know, but I hope justice finds them With that being said, this was an amazing conspiracy story with enough romance A MUST READ, BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN What a story Fifty years ago, I wasn t even blip on my mother s radar, but this novel certainly made me think hard about the political scandals back then and ask myself what secrets and skeletons do the people that worked for the government still keep locked away and how many innocent people lost everything because of it I will probably never know, but I hope justice finds them With that being said, this was an amazing conspiracy story with enough romance and suspense to keep me glued to my kindle until the last page was read, and left me wantingof Olivia s and Bill s story, Judy s and Mike s, oh and Jesse s and Shelli s I have to hand it to the author, I wasn t sure if I would love this novel as much as I do since most stories are of the young, violent, foolish, and most time gullible That s not what I look for per se in my reads, it s just harder to find books with seasoned characters that can make up their mind in a split second, over forty years old, and can evade the cops successfully Well, I found the proverbial needle in a haystack, and it was so worth the dig Elizabeth is now on my radar and I ll be looking fortop notch reads from her about whatever

    This book is unique, bizarre and a bit unbelievable When Livvy s husband passes away suddenly she somehow becomes obsessed with the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination Despite being close to 60 she has few memories of 11 22 63 and begins researching with a fervor Eventually she concludes she needs to go to Dallas and convinces her husband s friend to accompany her He is reluctant since he has a personal tie to the assassination, but doesn t share this with her view spoiler Not r This book is unique, bizarre and a bit unbelievable When Livvy s husband passes away suddenly she somehow becomes obsessed with the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination Despite being close to 60 she has few memories of 11 22 63 and begins researching with a fervor Eventually she concludes she needs to go to Dallas and convinces her husband s friend to accompany her He is reluctant since he has a personal tie to the assassination, but doesn t share this with her view spoiler Not really since it is in the title and description he s Oswald hide spoiler As someone who was suddenly widowed albeit at a much younger age, I could relate to her craziness And her desire to have one thing in her life make sense But a lot of the book felt like the Xfiles meets Fringe And there were parts that were silly as they travel toward Dallas there are people who seem to think they recognize Bill And how Livvy and Bill suddenly become almost super spies Note I waited several days to write the review When I first finished it I liked it better than I do now

    A fascinating and unique take on an unforgettable event in American history The book is as much a romance as it is a thriller It s well written and the story ticks along at a steady pace.The main characters of the story, Olivia and Bill, are believable and make a great couple It was refreshing to read a book in which the protagonists were older than I am The book is written in the first person and after a page or two, I felt like Olivia was telling her story to me personally and from that mom A fascinating and unique take on an unforgettable event in American history The book is as much a romance as it is a thriller It s well written and the story ticks along at a steady pace.The main characters of the story, Olivia and Bill, are believable and make a great couple It was refreshing to read a book in which the protagonists were older than I am The book is written in the first person and after a page or two, I felt like Olivia was telling her story to me personally and from that moment on I was hooked on this interesting and enjoyable read

    A must read I was unable to set this book down I must admit though it is a fictional book it could have anyone believing in the conspiracy of J.F.K Bill and Olivia have been long time neighbors and friends When Olivia decides she needs to know about the assassination of the President on the fiftieth anniversary, Bill will help her to get her answers ,than she could know.

    I was intrigued by this novel It is an interesting take on a unforgettable conspiracy I also enjoyed that it was a love story between two older people Often times it is forgotten that love can still exist after a certain age I found this to be a non stop page turning adventure I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good suspense and love after 40.
