Jailbird. Klepto. Spectacular failure to launch. Nicole Wood’s sticky fingers have earned her many names, but it’s not that she’s stealing—some objects just need to be moved elsewhere, and the universe has chosen her to do it. Still, being a relocator of objects isn’t easy. With her marriage on the rocks, no real-world skills, and the threat of prison hanging over her head, Nicole is determined to change her ways.

Things seem to be looking up, thanks to a godsent job with her sister’s housecleaning business—until she encounters a seemingly harmless paperback that insists on moving from one client’s home to another’s. Nicole hopes no one will notice, but the action stirs up long-hidden secrets and triggers a series of fateful events that threatens to destroy the life she’s creating and hurt those closest to her. She’ll need to embrace her unwieldy gift and take a chance on love in order to unravel the mystery and fix what’s gone wrong.

She relocates things. Sometimes it’s good. Sometimes, it’s not. What’s a girl to do when her good intentions go…sideways?

I’ve not read anything by Kerry Anne King before, so I was happy to pick this one up. The premise is interesting. The heroine, Nicole, has a propensity of moving objects from one place to another because it’s where they belong in the world. I like the idea. It’s unusual. I’m beginning to think she might be at my house moving my keys and phone from time to time.

I wanted to really like this book. I did. The plot is fascinating. The thing that was a bit of a trip up for me was the overall book. I wanted more dimension in the characters. I wanted to know what made them tick more. I wanted to get inside Nicole’s head more. She’s been through some heavy stuff, but it’s sort of glossed over. I did like Nicole and her fortitude, but other readers might like it more. It’s still a good read and one to be picked up.

This is a good afternoon read and great for when you want something cute for an afternoon.

Why not try it?
