Souls Adrift in the Windy CitySouls Adrift in the Windy City by JoAnn Hornak
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Will free will prevent two soul mates from finding each other?

When two souls destined to be together can’t seem to cross paths, matchmakers step in to give them a little nudge. Inez and Zeke are two such souls and Serena and Herodius are the matchmakers sent in to help them realize that destiny; this book is similar to the movie Adjustment Bureau.

As soon as Inez and Zeke are introduced, it’s obvious they are meant to be together. However, life gets in the way and while the sparks fly at their first meeting, the timing is terrible and they end up going their separate ways. Neither of them follows their dreams which prevent them from crossing paths again for over ten years.

JoAnn Hornak has written a tale that speaks of the potential consequences of not listening to that little voice in the back of your mind or ignoring what your gut is telling you. Overall, the book has a steady pace but the stubbornness and free will of the main characters conspire against them preventing their fate of meeting and possibly finding that rare jewel known as true love. As a result, this makes it a very frustrating read. The premise of the two main characters being soul mates is lost because of their continual refusal to listen to their gut instincts which would have brought them together.
