Lemoncella Cocktail: A thrilling fictional novel written by Rene Natan follows the life of Patrick Carter, a 25 year old twelve grade drop-out as he helps bring down a criminal syndicate. The novel boasts of 333 mind-blowing pages as we follow the protagonist through sad and exciting events of which are both entertaining and made as realistic as possible.

“No, no! Don’t”, followed by a splash was enough for the exhausted and penniless Patrick Carter to come running and jump into the Ausable river to save Samantha McLeod who was battling with the strong river currents. Thus, putting him on the radar of both the weapons trafficking mafia and the task force set up by the government to annihilate them. Subsequently, he was brought into the life of the McLeods and he helped them through some life changing experiences. He continually helped the task force in its operations to bring down the mafia and there he meets the love of his life.

The novel is generally fast paced and action-packed. The author deftly carves her characters and events in such a way that you can sit back and imagine the events vividly. It’s written in such a way that the reader might know what will eventually happen but every turn of a page brings doubt to the mind of the reader. Although, there are several editing errors found in the novel, on the whole it makes a good read for action lovers with a tint of romance.

Lemoncella Cocktail portrays love, betrayal, revenge, perseverance, friendship, death etc. The story is made in such a way that with every character a theme is portrayed. The easy going and simple minded bartender/lifeguard/hero- Patrick Carter, the sweet, understanding grandmother- Jessica, the persevering, ‘die hard’ teenager- Amelia, the sweet, gentle and loving little boy whom Patrick forms a bond with- Justin, the adept Des pres and his ever-present secretary-Lucien Borodin and the revengeful, stupidly smart Oscar Calander (the main antagonist of the story) are some of the characters I liked in the novel. I enjoyed the fact that the writer only made use of important characters, almost every character in the story had a part to play in how the story turned out.

Going through the pages of Lemoncella Cocktail set in Ontario, Canada I was constantly on the lookout for the source of the title though my hunger was satisfied at the end of the book I was disappointed a little bit but I am inclined to believe it was an effort on the path of the author at uniqueness. I found myself frustrated over the silly omissions and typos in the book, some examples are ‘expect’ written in place of ‘except’, ‘plenty’ instead of ‘pretty’. For these reasons I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. Rene surely tried for a wonderful plot and realistic characterization.

Great review! This book sounds like a great read. I am adding this novel to my bookshelf. You can never have enough mystery and suspense in your life.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
