    One thought on “The Traveling Man

    1. Lady Vigilante (Feifei)

      No rating Sometimes there are those rare books I read that really can’t be swept under one rating and The Traveling Man falls under that case. I just want to say this part first before anything else: I loved and disliked this book in equal measures. The unique setting of the story, the friends-to-lovers romance, and the beautiful writing were all major positives. Yet on the flip side, there were several plot devices I flat-out didn’t like and put up a pretty big negative case against the pos [...]

    2. Brandi

      4.5 StarsThis book had me completely captivated, a truly magical story. The author does a great job of bringing the carnival to life. Aimee has lived an ordinary life, but on her 10th birthday, when the carnival comes to town, she gets a glimpse of the extraordinary. While swept up in the magic of the carnival she meets Kes, the carnie boy who will change her world. Kes is charismatic, surly and wild, everything Aimee isn't."He was everything I wasn’t, but somehow, together, there was a synerg [...]

      4.5 Stars “I was old enough to know that magic didn’t exist, and young enough to hope that I was wrong. I was sure that if magic belongs anywhere in the world, it was living and breathing right across the road in Mr. Peterson’s field.”Jane Harvey-Berrick did a brilliant job gifting a spellbinding story through the eyes of a young girl named Aimee who goes to the carnival to celebrate her tenth birthday. Aimee meets a young carnie boy named Kes and the two form a friendship that spans sev [...]

      ★★★★ 4.5 Stars ★★★★Now LIVE!UK - amzn/1Cuq75M US - amzn/1H5frPpThis was such a magical book, I got so caught up in the descriptions and atmosphere of the carnival. It was one of those books where you really feel part of the story. We start off when Aimee is ten years old and for the first time ever, to the disparage of half of the community, the carnival is coming to her small town of Fairmont. It is her birthday wish and manages to persuade her parents to take her to see the won [...]

    5. Heather K (dentist in my spare time)

      Everyone seems to love this one, and one of my good friends insisted that I read it, but The Traveling Man left me feeling angry more than anything else.There was a time in my life where I thought books featuring emotionally unavailable and/or emotionally manipulative men was somewhat sexy (I know, I know). These guys were cool and mysterious! I mean, they were so broody! Broody = lots of feelings, right? (See Beautiful Disaster for an example of what I mean.) However, now that I'm older and (so [...]

    6. Vrsha (PeekAtMyBookReview)

      Note: I tried my best to write this review but I don’t know how my gif *Crazy emotions* got in between :p Rating : 5 ‘This one Touched my Heart’ StarsMy Views : I Simply Loved this book. This book is being narrated in 2 parts, 1st when Aimee and Kes were kids and the 2nd part where they are adults. We get the story of Aimee and Kes since they were kids, from how they met, became friends and later on more. I love how we see the progress of Aimee and Kes’ relationship; it wasfriendship tha [...]

      4.5 FAIRY DUST STARS“ere was no safety net for love”Like a child, JHB took me on a magical ride at the carnival with the lights, bells and whistles, the chaos, the candy, the laughter and the stomach ache. And yet, I'd do it all again!This is a loving, tender and heartbreaking collision of two completely different worlds when two 10 year olds: Aimee, the townie and Kes, the carnie meet on the midway at the Carnival. What ensues is a special friendship, bond and love that is tested by time, s [...]

    8. Natasha is a Book Junkie

      “He could breathe fire, he could eat flames, but the word ‘love’ burned on his lips.”I have such a soft spot for Jane Harvey-Berrick’s brand of make-believe, the allure of her remarkable writing style pulling me in and holding me captive time and time again, and this book was no exception. A setting that was completely foreign and somewhat uninviting to me, she once again succeeded in mesmerizing me from the very beginning, until I realised I was highlighting entire pages, in awe of ev [...]

      According to me a Prologue or the 1st Chapter of a book is THE reflection - SO it must capture my attention from page 1 I will continue a few more chapters to give the Book a fair chance to change my mind!Herewith my review! I've absolutely loved book 1 and 2 in this series and book 3 didn't disappoint either. This book was filled with so many twists and turns and kept me on the edge of my seat! “This is a carnival, where magic happens and dreams come true” Tucker McCoy, a stunt rider at the [...]

    10. Jill

      In my opinion the carnie has often been given a bad rap.From the urban myth that they're missing teeth and smell like cabbages to being the butt of jokes in movies like Austin Powers:Austin Powers: There are only two things in this world that scare me and one is nuclear war.Basil: What’s the other?Austin Powers: Huh?Basil: What’s the other thing that scares you?Austin Powers: Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands.But at last, an author has seen what others h [...]

      5 "Magical Forbidden First Love Stars"! A new top favorite! If I could give this book 6 stars, I would. I could not put it down until I had read every treasured last word! This book brought back all the memories of first love, as if I was physically experiencing it again, electric charges and all! It then proceeded to shred my heart into a million pieces, only to reassemble it again, along with the renewed hope of forever conquering the hidden forces that always seem to plague and limit one's ti [...]

      5 Magical StarsOMG, this story is so, so beautiful! Jane Harvey-Berrick has painted a magical world (in the non-pnr sense) which sets the stage for an amazing love story that spans 14 years, and the combination is exciting and passionate. The writing is wonderful and the feels are intense, and I was captivated the whole way through. You know those books that have that special 'feel' to them that is what die-hard readers crave? Well, this book has that. So be warned – my review is gushy and quo [...]

      *Complimentary ARC received from author*4.5 ★This is a first Harvey-Berrick read and what a treat!It’s such a charming emotional read, if that makes sense. A love story that spans time, a love story about second chances, a love story born out of innocence… sigh… The more I think about this, the more the emotions wash over me and make me appreciate the relationship and story more.Part 1 completely captivated me, seeing the connection blossoming in time, feeling the same anticipation as Ai [...]

      LIVE TODAY! PURCHASE LINKS:US amzn/1zlmSOUUK amzn/15ELunSThis was, without a doubt, the best book I have read by Jane Harvey-Berrick, and I've read a lot of her books. It was truly magical!I don't even know where to start. I could either talk forever and a day, and tell you everything, or keep it minimal, so that I don't spoil the story for anybody. I feel like this is the sort of book where you need to go in to it, knowing hardly anything. We know the basics and I think that is all that we need [...]

      ‘I felt safe and protected. I felt like I belonged.’Okay; we just read what we’re sure will be a top favourite for 2015. We already knew that Jane Harvey Berrick is a master of beautiful evocative writing so that came as no surprise. However, we weren’t prepared for such an exceptionally stunning piece of emotional writing that demanded and consequently accepted our entire hearts as the characters captured us in every way possible. To say we loved everything about The Traveling Man is an [...]

      ***4 1/2 "Magical" Stars!!!***Jane Harvey-Berrick is one of my favorites. I adore her writing style, and I have a particular fondness for stories that are, at their hearts, about two people fumbling through love. Relationships are complicated, and JHB gives us that in all its messy glory with Kes and Aimee.What I loved most about this book was the enduring love between the two, which changes (one might even say mutates over a period of fifteen years. I believe opposites attract, I believe connec [...]

      It's so refreshing to find a such a beautifully written story amid all of the smut I usually read. Happily for me there was still scorching hot smut that kept a grin on my face for hours but it was the unusual setting and vivid characters and just the sheer magic of reading about two people slowly falling for one another that made this such an outstanding read for me.It's a childhood friends to lovers story, but Aimee is the townee and Kes is the circus boy. They are together for two weeks every [...]

      WOW this book is brilliant. I wish I could give it 10 Stars.Jane has proven once again what a great author she is with this story. You name it; this book has it, empathy, laughter, love, angst and the right amount of drama. The story is so well written in this book that I guarantee you will not be able to put it down.The characters, Kes and Aimee feel so real that you follow along in a somewhat dream like quality feeling as if you are right there with them, going through everything they are and [...]
