I’m so glad I came across this author’s works recently. Sometimes you read one book by a new-to-you author and think you’ll love their writing only to find that the other books in their library of work are duds. I’m happy to say this book was just as good as the first one I read.

Often things can seemed rushed in a novella. There are quite a few series that I love and have found the novellas within the series are not very good. Not so in this case. It was short but not rushed. The love was quick but not too fast. Plus, the story made me laugh and cry. I couldn’t ask for more.

There were some odd grammatical issues here and there that interrupted the flow of the story for me, but nothing major. Plus, that’s the editors fault more than the authors.  There were also a couple times that the timeline didn’t add up for me, and I’m a stickler for the timelines working out correctly. 

I’m on a waiting list for the next few books in this series and I’m getting impatient!  I may have to see if my public library has them so I can get them more quickly.

About Cheri

I'm the mom of two boys and wife to my high school sweetheart. Our oldest, Josh, is 24 and living at home while working. He just finished trade school for media arts and is looking for a job that will be a career so he can get out on his own. In the meantime he's got a steady job with benefits. Our youngest, Griffin, is 20 and in the Army. He just got married so I have also gained a daughter. Unfortunately, he is stationed in Washington so they're across the country from us. I was lucky enough to have the option of leaving the work force a few years ago, but recently went back part-time to learn a new trade working at a small family owned coffee shop.
