Do you ever feel like you are falling out of an airplane and you’re not really sure if the parachute is going to deploy? Or perhaps you’ve been in a situation that has you cringing in anticipation of the outcome? That feeling of exhilaration is what you will experience when reading this book. “Sheetrock Angel” is thrilling, discombobulating and anxiety striking. But you won’t be able to put it down.
Audrey’s just left her first husband for the second time. Licking her fresh metaphoric wounds, she buys a disastrous “fixer-upper” to keep her busy while she gets back on her feet. It isn’t long before a rugged-yet-handsome neighbor ambles up and offers to help her with the dry wall, and within weeks (two or so chapters), Audrey is entrenched in a world of drugs, shady art dealings and unscrupulous peers.
To top it off, Audrey is now beginning to manifest signs of the schizophrenia that plagued her mother and damaged her childhood in Glendale.
