Jasper never planned on going home again. He has good reasons to stay away but when an old acquaintance calls saying his mother needs him, he can’t help but go.

Author Lisa Marie Davis uses some hard hitting topics as the background story in Jasper’s Journey. This is a story that will grab you from the beginning. Both Jasper and Zander are suffering; Jasper, from the tragic events in his childhood and Zander, from survivor’s guilt due to an IED explosion in Iraq. The feelings and struggles these two have, as a result of their issues, come across realistically. I liked how the author was able to work around Jasper’s many issues as she brought these two together.

While some aspects of the mystery are easy to solve right from the beginning, others are not, which will keep you reading till the end. The events surrounding Jasper’s childhood are prevalent to the story, and while the scenes are not overly descriptive, some readers may still have difficulty with them.

If you have not read anything by this author yet then pick up Jasper’s Journey. It is sure to make you a fan.
