Spinning by Michael Baron Review & Giveaway

Have you ever seen those clowns who are spinning many plates and then they let one fall so they can save the others? Dylan Hunter is constantly spinning but refuses to let any plates drop.  He's a young executive director for a public relations firm who works hard and parties even harder.  He has a great Manhatten apartment that has a revolving door where the women are concerned.  He tells himself he may want to have kids later - much later, but marriage doesn't even enter into the equation.

In the middle of the night, he hears a knock on his door.  He doesn't know who it could be but is frantically looking for something to wear and to see where his girl of the night is.  She seems to have left but her underthings are strewn about the apartment.  He is shocked to see ex-girlfriend Diane at the door with her young daughter.  Still half out of it he invites them in while he is frantically figuring out dates in his head to see if the girl is his.  Diane explains to him that she has sold everything to come to Manhatten at his suggestion to get a great job.  Dylan made that suggestion years ago, but it took this long for her to make the plunge.  They need somewhere to stay until they find an apartment and Dylan quickly agrees to them staying with him.

Dylan's plates are spinning, not used to people in his home and interrupting his routine but he quickly adapts.  The little girl, Spring, quickly makes her way into his heart.  But when there is an accident, Dylan becomes the sole caretaker of Spring.  Dylan does his best, but Spring is scared that Dylan will go away too.  Two people find their way towards one another, but Dylan's plates are spinning at a frantic rate and something has to fall. 

Michael Baron pens such soul-searching novels that are full of warmth, humor and superb characters.  When you first meet Dylan, you see a partying no-care-in-the-world player just looking out for himself.  But Dylan grows and matures as a little girl shows him how to really live and to love.  The antics that Dylan and Spring get up to will tug on your heartstrings and make you laugh out loud.  A very touching and compelling story not to be missed!

  18. After having another cup of java, I just realized your giveaway isn't for "Spinning" (thanks for your review of it). This giveaway is for "The Journey Home". After reading a synopsis of this book which sounds like a very moving story of 3 characters who are searching for what home means to them, I would very much like to read it. Both books sound like very touching stories.
