I like the idea of a short story collection where there is a thread connecting the stories, but it sounds like there are just too few redeeming features in this case! Thanks for your review - I will give this one a miss..

Though this book story had some good message to share, it seems that it is not professionally edited and can give little hardship to the reader understanding message clearly.

Wow. I was at first intrigued by the title of the book, but thank God I read your review. Stereotyping male and female characters and lacking a sense of direction in plot is not a way to write stories, whether short or long. Thank you for your review Cecilia :D

Latest Review: Final Notice by Van Fleisher

The title caught my eye, but after reading the review, I believe this will be a book I will be skipping. It's sad when authors don't have their stories proofread enough. The author goes into topics that are hard to cover, such as abusive relationships. I noticed your review said about how the women would start out like they were going to break away, but then didn't. It might not be a fun aspect to read, but I believe the author portrayed abusive relationships very well in writing it that way. Many women can't escape their abusers and continue in the cycle.

The stories sound very insightful and I also feel like I relate a lot with Bonnie.
