Review Tour - Infinity + One by Amy Harmon


Title: Infinity + One
Author: Amy Harmon
Release Date: June 8, 2014

When two unlikely allies become two unwitting outlaws, will two unforgettable lovers defy unbeatable odds?
Bonnie Rae Shelby is a superstar. She’s rich. She’s beautiful. She’s impossibly famous. And Bonnie Rae Shelby wants to die.
Finn Clyde is a nobody. He’s broken. He’s brilliant. He’s impossibly cynical. And all he wants is a chance at life.
One girl. One boy. An act of compassion. A bizarre set of circumstances. And a choice – turn your head and walk away, or reach out your hand and risk it all?
With that choice, the clock starts ticking on a man with a past and a girl who can’t face the future, counting down the seconds in an adventure riddled with heartbreak and humor, misunderstanding and revelation. With the world against them, two very different people take a journey that will not only change their lives, but may cost them their lives as well.
Infinity + One is a tale of shooting stars and fame and fortune, of gilded cages and iron bars, of finding a friend behind a stranger’s face, and discovering love in the oddest of places.


I really don't know where to start with this review. Amy Harmon certainly has a way with storytelling and this book is no exception.
Bonnie Rae Shelby is a famous country singer and a true representation of the fact money doesn't buy happiness. Finn Clyde is an ex-con and emotionally broken but hoping to put the past behind him.  Through a series of whacky circumstances these two are thrown together for an amazing journey of discovery, not just about discovering themselves as individuals but nurturing the strange pull they feel towards each other. It's a tale of two lonely people who found each other at their time of need.
To be perfectly honest it took me a while to get into this book but I am so glad I persevered. Infinity + One has so many underlying messages and meanings it makes you really think about life, true happiness and the existence of soul mates.
I thought the constant references to the tales of 'Bonnie and Clyde' were quirky and different and surprisingly thought the Maths references were very clever, considering Maths was never something I enjoyed, takes talent lol.
Overall I enjoyed Infinity + One and as always, am looking forward to what Amy has in store for us all next.

Having grown up in the middle of wheat fields without a television, with only her books and her siblings to entertain her, she developed a strong sense of what made a good story.

Amy Harmon has been a motivational speaker, a grade school teacher, a junior high teacher, a home school mom, and a member of the Grammy Award winning Saints Unified Voices Choir, directed by Gladys Knight. She released a Christian Blues CD in 2007 called “What I Know” – also available on Amazon and wherever digital music is sold. She has written five novels, Running Barefoot, Slow Dance in Purgatory, Prom Night in Purgatory, the New York Times Bestseller, A Different Blue, Making Faces and most recently, Infinity + One.
