Blue Coyote Motel by Dianne Harman

I picked up Blue Coyote Motel, because I like contemporary fiction, and it didn’t disappoint. Blue Coyote Motel is an interesting concept, because it leaves the reader with the feeling that it could really happen.

The patrons who stop at the Blue Coyote Motel are each facing personal issues and are given an unapproved drug that the motel owners call “Freedom” without their knowledge. Ms. Harman artfully tells the story of each of the travelers’ circumstances prior to their motel stay, which include social issues such as child molestation, alcoholism, widowhood and others. The travelers’ stories are developed tactfully, and the descriptions are detailed enough to feel real.

After experiencing “Freedom” each of the travelers’ lives improve, until like any drug, it wears off. The book’s pace quickens at that point, because each of the travelers start to experience life in its natural un-drugged state again. Read Blue Coyote Motel to find out what happens when the travelers discover they were drugged and how they live the rest of their lives with that knowledge.
