An Extra Shot Book Review
My Thoughts on An Extra Shot
A follow on from Another Shot telling the romance story of Freddie and Jo-Jo. It has flashbacks so we find out more about Freddie and Jo-Jo, if you liked the first book you would have been waiting for the second instalment to find out if there was ever a happy ending.
This isn’t the end though as there is a third book to look forward to. I do think you need to read Another Shot first to get a full understanding of the relationship between these two characters.
Freddie discovers a secret but how will he react I cant tell you as I dont want to give the story away. Just like the first book it is flashback to the 70s and 80s so if this is your era you might get a few memories popping back too.
About An Extra Shot
An Extra Shot continues to tell the story of Freddie and Jo-Jo. It moves backwards and forwards through time in a series of first-person flashbacks and describes how the couple fell in love as teenagers, why they drifted apart, what happened in their lives away from each other, and what happens when they meet up again over thirty-five years later.
A failed reconciliation in book one, Another Shot, has left Freddie at a railway station thinking about jumping under a train and Jo-Jo in a hotel room consumed with the dark secret she has carried for most of her adult life. Freddie is saved by his best friend, Jack Sparrow, and Jo-Jo is convinced by her daughter, Amy, to meet up with Freddie again. Freddie then persuades Jo-Jo to go away with him for a long weekend in Devon and the couple return home with their love reignited.
However, Jo-Jo can’t let their relationship continue without telling Freddie the truth about her dark secret. Is their love strong enough to get them through?
I was born in Walsall, grew up in the West Midlands and now live in Telford with my two cats, Boris and Tai. After working in the health and social care sector for over thirty years, I have now taken early retirement to write the trilogy that has been rooted in my head for most of my life.
An Extra Shot is the second book in the Shots trilogy, which is based on a first love relationship I had as a teenager. It tells the story of Freddie and Jo-Jo, who are reunited in a coffee shop three decades after the end of their teenage romance. How they originally met, why they parted, what happens in their lives apart, and what happens when they reunite is all told through a series of first person vignettes. I am currently working on the final book.
Getting these stories down on paper has been a cathartic process. I hope you enjoy them. ‘
