Guys, I can’t tell you how excited I am that Liv’s novel, Aqua Follies, is finally out in the world.
I had the privilege of reading a very early copy of this book. Long story short, it might be the reason Liv and I are writing partners today.
It seems odd to me that so many of her other works have come out in the interim while this one simmered on the back burner. Whatever she’s been doing to it, I think the wait was worth it.
I invite all of you to step back a few short decades into mid-century America and the summer Aqua Follies tour….
The 1950s. Postwar exuberance. Conformity. Rock and roll.
Russell tells himself he’ll marry Susie because it’s the right thing to do. His summer job coaching her water ballet team will give him plenty of opportunity to give her a ring. But on the team’s trip to the annual Aqua Follies, the joyful glide of a trumpet player’s solo hits Russell like a torpedo, blowing apart his carefully constructed plans.
From the orchestra pit, Skip watches Poseidon’s younger brother stalk along the pool deck. It never hurts to smile at a man, because good things might happen. Once the last note has been played, Skip gives it a shot.
The tenuous connection forged by a simple smile leads to events that dismantle both their lives. Has the damage been done, or can they pick up the pieces together?
