Summer Reading Event: YA of Omnific Publishing

Jennifer Lane

Seems like Leo Scott has it all: looks, brains, and athletic talent. He's captain of his high school swim team with a bright future in college and beyond. But Leo has secrets. His mother's crippling car accident has devastated his family and left Leo to deal with his father's abuse, battered and alone. 

Leo's girlfriend Audrey Rose is poised for her own share of success. As one of Florida's top high school swimmers, Audrey dreams of college swimming stardom. But there's an obstacle to her glorious rise to the top. Her number-one supporter-her father-is in prison for murder. 

Part murder mystery, part tale of young love in a military family, this gripping story takes readers on a journey from Pensacola to Annapolis. Leo and Audrey must band together to rise above the adversity they encounter and find their true selves in the process. When everything's on the line . . . streamline.

I loved Streamline!! I'm normally not into the whole murder mystery thing but this book was phenomenal!! You know me and how I hate spoilers but I have to say that so much happens in this book. The characters are all real, have depth, and are so intertwined that nothing is as it seems. Each action effects at least two other people. This is a longer book, which I enjoy because I hate burning through a book in a day or less. This is also the first full length novel by Jennifer Lane that I have gotten to read. I got a taste of her writing from Swim Recruit. It is a novella available for free on Omnific Publishing's website. Click here for more info. You'll see what kind of emotional punch Ms Lane can throw at you. 

I truly enjoyed Streamline by Jennifer Lane and am proud to give it 5 of 5 stars!
