Review - Sleeping Tigers by Holly Robinson

Title and Author: Sleeping Tigers by Holly Robinson
Publisher: CreateSpace
Publication Date: December 28th, 2011
Paperback/Hardcover: 258
Genre: Contemporary

Jordan O'Malley has everything she ever wanted: a job she loves, a beautiful home, and a dependable boyfriend. When her life unravels after a breast cancer scare, Jordan decides to join her wildest childhood friend in San Francisco and track down her drifter brother, Cam, who harbors secrets of his own.
When Cam suddenly flees the country, Jordan follows, determined to bring him home. Her journey takes her to the farthest reaches of majestic Nepal, where she encounters tests—and truths—about love and family that she never could have imagined.

I received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review and I was really impressed with this story.
After surviving a cancer scare Jordan O’Malley decides to leave everything behind and travel across the country so she can reconnect with an old friend and search for her brother. Her search leads her to California and then to Nepal where she finds that she is a lot stronger than she thought she was and that you can find passion in the most unexpected places.
I really liked the characters in this book. They are complex, interesting and seemed real to me, especially Jordan who went through a lot with her cancer scare and unsupportive fiancé and still managed to find her strength.
Sleeping Tigers is very well-written and the author is able to make the readers experience the same emotions as the characters right along with them.
Seeping Tigers is a wonderful book that deals with important issues and proves that fact that, sometimes, life can throw you a curveball and catch you by surprise but that you might just be stronger than you think.
This is a very good story I think anyone can enjoy.

Rating: Somewhere Between Worth Your Time and Must Read (4 ½   Stars)
