True love (and lust!) never seem to run smoothly

James A. Cox, Editor in Chief, Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

Lucky Lukovich is a young man who thoroughly enjoys the companionship of women and has an energetic flair for living life to the fullest. Then Lucky meets free-spirited Heather and his personal world is about to get complicated and unpredictable! Silicon Secrets is about unintended consequences in human relationships and how the course of true love (and lust!) never seem to run smoothly. Silicon Secrets is the debut novel of Catherine Burr, a genuinely gifted author who demonstrates an undeniable ability to craft memorable, entertaining characters and then thoroughly embroil them into a hectic and unpredictable sequence of events that produce one of those all-to-rare reading experiences that linger in the mind long after the book is set back upon the library shelf. Highly recommended!

Catherine Burr captivates readers in this tale of secrets, lies, freedom and desire.

Lucky is a man who tries to out-run his past, chooses unsure paths and ultimately learns that there is more to life than money and success.  Lucky is a character that I didn’t really care for all that much at first, I found him to be pretty self-absorbed, didn’t care who he hurt along the way to obtaining his goals. He is a lost soul who finds his strength and his destiny in Heather, but he allows his hunger for fame, fortune and his other shenanigans to tear them apart. But to give credit to Ms. Burr, by then end of the book and after the surprises she had in store for me, I grew to get along with Lucky and he showed me that there is more to him underneath the surface.

This is a story full of twists and turns that readers won’t expect and will be on the edge of their seats right through to the end.  I was entranced by the strength of this writer’s words, her depictions of Silicon Valley and the characters (whether you like them or dislike them) make you care about them. If readers are looking for romance, mystery, sexual tensions and the glamorous life, then Catherine Burr will deliver it to you with no holds barred.

Ms. Burr is a talented lady who draws you into her story, holds you captive and leaves you with a smile on your face when it is over.  SILICON SECRETS is a recommended read for readers of any age or gender….you might just be surprised on how much you enjoy it!
