About the Book

Red Brooking puts together Boca Raton beach chaise lounge chairs for a living. He has had a limited number of what he describes as real moments in his life. Red defines real moments as vivid memories or unforgettable experiences. His time with the opposite sex hasn’t left him with much to think back on either. This self-proclaimed loser never gets the girl. Anne, an acquaintance and former love interest, signs Red up for a vacation getaway that may give him the real moment he has always been looking for: a trip to Fog Post Rest, a reclusive hideaway just inside the Canadian border. On the trip to this exclusive resort Red encounters the Rainbow Harrier, a bird rarely seen by man. This is something he will never forget. While there, Red chases women and gets to know the local folk. He spends long nights down at the Old Canadian Ice Tavern and splashes a little life on his arid, barren existence. But does he get the girl? The guy always has to get the girl, right?

About the Author

Brian Karre wrote Lime in Salt while living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming working as a radio announcer for KZ95. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, this story was inspired by his move to the Rocky Mountain west. He describes this short novella as a compilation of observations, opinions, notes and ignorance from life in his twenties.
