Publisher's Summary

The Fourth of July takes place in the summer 1974 on an island off the coast of Connecticut.

All Jack Smith wants is a vacation like he enjoyed in his youth: swimming, sailing, and sunshine. But Jack finds his summer plans spiraling out of control. His estranged wife follows him to the island, looking for money. The priest and constable are conspiring his ruin. And the local Lolita is intent upon seducing him. Jack suddenly has more problems than he can handle, and he deals with them the only way he knows how: with rum and romance, all leading to a calamitous Fourth of July, in Kevin Dowd's hilarious first novel.

ENTERTAINING STORY :)

I'm sure we've all had those days when just everything we do goes wrong, nothing works out, and you get frustrated! LOL this was a lighthearted, entertaining story about a guy who just can't catch a break during the Fourth of July holiday. I mean hell, if a priest and constable are out to get him, does he even stand a chance?
Enjoyed the story and the narration was awesome!

The Fourth of July

The Fourth of July
by Kevin Dowd

This is a different kind of short story. The adult characters act way too immature. There are some funny moments, but not enough to over-ride the overall story. Sorry I wasn't impressed! Sorry no excitement for the story.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Full Cast was the one thing I found entertaining!!
