Goodbye Reservations Release Day Party – 16th September:
BECCA CAMPBELL is a twenty-three-year-old woman who will do great things in her life.
But—that’s her future.
But—that’s her future.
Right now, the year is 1999.
While the world is concerned with surviving Y2K, Becca’s focus is trying to make it through the darkest year of her life. She’s lost both of her parents in a tragic accident, bills seem to be piling high, her car is on its last leg, and she’s trying to save for nursing school. No matter how many hours she works; she can’t catch a break. NOTHING in her world is going right.
That is, until, Mr. Tall, Dark, and Pompous walks into her life, turning it right-side up, no matter how much she fights it. He is everything she didn’t want to need and everything she now realizes she can’t be without.
This is the beginning of Becca’s epic journey:

I am a domestic engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young, impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine), and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work this magic from the beautiful state of New Hampshire.
Before becoming a domestic goddess (not really), I spent over a decade in the medical field, where I wore more hats than the Queen.
I have loved the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures.
Finding myself again through my writing in The Lost & Found Series, The One, and The GEG Series has been nothing short of a dream come true. Also, it makes people feel better when I laugh randomly or talk to myself, knowing it's my characters and not "the voices" . . . that would be creepy.
5 Bare Naked Stars *****
Goodbye Reservations is the prequel to the 3 Lost and Found books – Goodbye Reservations, Goodbye Secrets and Goodbye Uncertainty.
****YOU MUST READ THOSE BOOKS BEFORE THIS PREQUEL****
If you haven’t read them – to be honest you need to stop reading this review, bookmark it, go buy and read them (they are now available in a boxset **whoop whoop**) and then come back to this review!
Jac takes us back to 1999…fledgling internet, cell phones and Becca is 23. She’s going through some tough times and this book is a great insight into what forms and shapes her. And she is a snarky and funny as ever!
“I sit here for several minutes, trying to organize the many thoughts going through my head. First: I need to somehow get a cell phone. This fucking sucks! Even worse—what if I was in East Bumble Fuck when this happened? I’d be forced to walk to civilization and probably be that stupid female in horror movies who yells, “Hello?” when they hear a noise, then investigates it only to get slaughtered. I hate those dumb bitches.”
Once again Jacquelyn Ayres has nailed these characters! You will laugh – you will cry, you may also find yourself meeting a few new people, or at least getting to know existing characters better. **chants** I want Derek’s story and I want it now!!
