Book Spotlight: I Can't Tell You Why

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this book for review. All opinions are mine. 

I Can’t Tell You Why by Elaine Robertson North, is an intriguing new novel. There is Dani – the agent, Alex Cambridge – the married star client whose career is on the rise, and Sean – the paparazzi photographer. The story is told against the backdrop of the entertainment industry. The novel gets right to the point straight out of the gate as Alex lets Dani know in no uncertain terms that he wants to get involved with her. This takes Dani by surprise and she hesitates, but it does dangle the carrot of temptation before her.

I found this novel quite intriguing. It makes you think. Many people believe that affairs are wrong...including me. Yet people still have affairs and it often makes me wonder what goes through a person’s mind when they decide to go forward with it. I’m fascinated by human nature and I wonder in each situation just what is the turning point. That’s why I found it fascinating to read I Can’t Tell You Why. It’s an intriguing look at what could happen perhaps.

For Dani, besides the moral argument against having an affair, she is cautious about crossing the professional line between agent and actor.  As Dani wrestles with the whole Alex situation, Sean the paparazzi photographer comes along. Dani has to watch herself around Sean as she knows that his profession is fed by stories just like the one between her and Alex.

I Can’t Tell You Why is a very interesting novel and it delves deep into human emotions. I liked that the characters weren’t perfect. The author is excellent at making the characters seem real. I kept reading because I wanted to see how it all turned out in the end. It's quite a page turner.

I enjoyed reading I Can’t Tell You Why. It’s enthralling and the realism shines throughout. It leaves you with something to think about long after you turn the last page.
