Close Enough to Touch by Colleen Oakley @OakleyColleen #contemporary fiction #fiction #bookreviewer #bookcommunity

Susanne’s Review:

Oh So Good!

Jubilee Jenkins is allergic to humans.  As in if someone touches her skin, she could literally die.

That in a nutshell caused Jubilee to hide from the world for 10 lonely years.  

All this time, Jubilee’s mother has taken care of her financially but after her mother’s death, Jubilee is cut off and that means that she must brave the world again in order to survive. 

Talk about a dichotomy wrapped in an enigma!

Then there’s Eric, who’s adopted son Aja is quite the handful. Truth be told, Eric is failing when it comes to being a father to both Aja and his daughter.  New in town, when Eric and Aja meet Jubilee, somehow, she strikes a chord in both of them.  

A book about friendship, love, healing and taking chances, that stole this girl’s heart.  If you haven’t read this book already and it’s not on your radar, it should be.  Captivating, compelling and endearing, “Close Enough to Touch” is contemporary fiction at its absolute best.

Thank you to my local library for loaning me a copy of this audiobook.
