My Review: 

Mortal Weather: A Novel is a beautiful debut for new and talented author K P McCarthy. After reading this engaging novel, I hoping there will many more to come. He has crafted a story that made me feel as though it was my own. Seeing what Stanhope has endured and his grief, I saw so many comparisons of myself. All throughout the book, there were times I had to pull out the tissues, while others made my heart warm. I loved meeting the different people along the way and learning about each one, while watching Stanhope grow as a person. I enjoyed going on this adventure with him, finding hope even through the greatest of pain and heartache. I believe so many other readers would find this book to be relatable for them and feel a connection with Stanhope.  

Mortal Weather: A Novel will be getting a very deserved five plus stars from me. If I could give it one hundred, I would. I highly recommend it for readers and fans who love to read fiction that keeps the engaged from page one until they have read the last. I would love to read more like this one from K P McCarthy in the future. He has earned himself a new fan with this one.

I received a paperback copy of K P McCarthy’s Mortal Weather: A Novel from the publisher, but was not required to write a positive review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.


  1. Many thanks for the wonderful review. The story took years and a bit of torment but you've made it all worthwhile.

  2. Hi Amy! I'm glad you liked the book. So did I! For me, there were so many relatable characters in it, and I love the settings in California and Colorado. I hope other readers will be inspired to read it as well.
