Book Review – The Button by D. L. Finn


What Amazon Says

Lynn Hill left a difficult childhood behind when she turned eighteen. The 1980s were going to be the beginning of a great life. Then what started as an ordinary evening out with her best friend, Stacy, turns into a nightmare. Lynn hears warnings: “Go!” “Leave!” Believing she is hearing things after partying too much, she goes back for one more drink before going home. That decision sets off a chain of events that nothing could have prepared her for. While humans and not-so-human beings are attempting to either help or harm her, Lynn risks everything to find the only person she trusts, Stacy. Who can help her? The stepbrother who shows up right when she needs him or the attractive, helpful bartender who gives her his phone number? Lynn must learn to trust again. Her survival depends on it in this paranormal thriller.

My Recommendation

In The Button, D. L. Finn portrayed Lynn’s anger toward her dysfunctional and abusive family. The anger was reflected on a button with a negative message. Lynn pinned the button outside her bag so schoolmates could see. When she turned eighteen and worked in a hair salon, she pinned the button inside the purse, but her anger was still there.

Lynn and her best friend and roommate Stacey had a night out in the bar and tried to get free drinks from the guys. The girls were drugged and taken away. That was the beginning of the twists and turns of this thrilling and suspenseful story. Lynn didn’t know whom to trust or distrust including family members she encountered on her spinning ride.

There were two angels provided suggestions in the form of bringing back memories or audible nudging. Lynn learned to use them to make her own decisions. And the evildwel dwelt in the bad guys urged them to commit evil deeds. In this roller coaster ride, Lynn started to trust Kent and had a romantic relationship. The story came to a bright ending and Lynn got a new button with a happy message.

The author D. L Finn skillfully started the story with an angry button and ended it with a happy button. I like this story and highly recommend it.
