Ms Quarles requested that I review her book saying that she believed it was something I’d enjoy reading. To be honest when I saw the title and read the blurb I groaned but as it was a special request I loaded my ereader.
Boy was I surprised Ms Quarles must be psychic as I fell into this book right away. It’s what I term an easy read it takes no effort at all to read and the plot drifts along at a steady clip. The Characters are believable and everything just gels. Those who have an inner geek of their own will love it and those that don’t will enjoy it. If you’re looking for a feel good novella this is the one for you.
I learnt a valuable lesson during this review not only can’t you judge a book by its cover you most certainly can’t judge a book by its title. Ms Quarles may not realize it but she gave me a wonderful gift and has earned a spot on my must watch list.
