Review: Central Park Song by Zack Love

"When you look for beauty, you usually end up finding it." If there is a line from Central Park Song, the newest release from Zack Love that sums up the story for me it is this. Central Park Song is  brilliantly written story that is actually a screenplay. While this is my first time reading this type of format, it works so well that you are transported into the story. Melinda is a successful lawyer and Rodney is a brilliant, handsome, young man who is homeless. Despite being from such different backgrounds, their chance meetings leads to a strong connection between the two. While their feelings grow, both Melinda and Rodney have to face their own realities and struggles. Can they overcome them and have a happily ever after? You just have to read and find out. Central Park Song is a well written story that you can't put down. Zack Love knows how to tell a story, whether it's a screenplay, short story, or novel. The beauty of Central Park Song is that it shows that connections and love can happen any where and with anyone. It shouldn't matter, who you are or where you come from. I love the optimism of that message.

Rodney says it best when he says "When you look for beauty, you usually end up finding it."  You'll find it in this great story.
