Call Me Kismet: A
Novel by PJ Mayhem follows Fiona Johnson, a woman in her thirties who
decides to ditch her old way of life to embrace one that is more spiritually
focused. She has personality issues and struggles with anxiety and self-doubt.
One of the steps she takes towards personal transformation is the change of
name, adopting Kismet as her new identity. When her spiritual healer
Amethyst reveals that she can see a man in Kismet’s aura, Kismet sets out
to uncover who this soulmate of hers is and there is no other person in her
mind but the singing fruitologist at the local supermarket. But nothing is as
easy as it seems, because the singing fruitologist proves highly elusive plus she has to deal with her anxiety issues and her
family’s incomprehension of what is going on with her. What will it take her to
finally find love and connect with the man her healer sees in her aura?
This is a novel that is well-written to explore the
idiosyncrasy that inhabits the soul of a genuinely human character. While the
pacing is slow, the reader can’t take their eyes off the flawed and realistic
protagonist. PJ Mayhem writes in prose that is dazzling and infuses the writing
with humanity and a rare touch of magic. The characters are relatable and the
female protagonist is expertly accomplished, a character that is real in her
struggles, especially her sense of anxiety. The humor fills the pages of the
narrative, augmenting the entertainment. Call Me Kismet: A Novel is a gorgeous treat and readers will
have a jolly good time journeying with the crazy protagonist on her quest for
love. You’ll enjoy the great storytelling, the author’s exploration of human
nature and the contours of anxiety, and the humor that keeps the pages turning.
