“Dry as Rain” by Gina Holmes

Cover: Dry as Rain

This is one of the few female-written books that Scripted Genius has reviewed. It is also one of the few paperbacks that we’ve looked at in recent months.

That said, it should be noted that the entire book has not been read for this review. We are commenting not on the tale, but on the author’s ability and writing style.

Gina Holmes presents Dry as Rain rather well, with the tale of a husband and wife. Then the possibility of divorce. And the accident. Now, the husband, Eric, has the opportunity to win back his wife, due to the amnesia she incurred from the accident. The question is, though: will love prevail? Can he win her heart from their issues before she remembers, if she ever does? And will his guilt of his own treacherous shortcomings overtake him?

Holmes writes in a simple, easy-to-read manner that all authors should strive for. The text is enjoyable, but awkward. Following Eric and his thoughts, a female writer determining a man’s thoughts is just about as successful as a male writer determining a female’s thoughts: questionable at best. While my wife found the text to sound like a man, I did not, which indicates that Holmes wrote this with a primarily female audience in mind, and did so quite brilliantly. But to me, it just doesn’t sound like a guy, but more like a female guessing what a guy would think.

Nevertheless, Christian messages pop up throughout the text, including the very beginning. It’s an enjoyable read, but most likely one that I’ll leave to the missus to complete. Simple enough for silent or auditory reading, I’d expect an audiobook edition to find its way into the arena shortly.And released today, why not check it out…
