A Challenging Issue.

Review of HEALING RUBY by Jennifer H. Westall

by Yvonne Lieblein       Reviewer Rating: 4 Stars      

Westhall has created well-drawn characters and dialogue so natural that it makes the reader feel like an eavesdropper. The plot’s (very) occasional lags are worth overlooking because of the reflective residue it leaves behind, giving Healing Ruby staying power that lingers long after the final chapter ends.

Review of THE FOOL’S TRUTH by Loretta H. Marion

by Jessica Bettencourt       Reviewer Rating: 2.5 Stars      

“The Fool’s Truth” will appeal to fans of suspenseful thrillers with multiple layered story lines, so long as they are not too discerning when it comes to the nuances of the writing style, the depth of the characterizations, or the contrivances of the plot.

Challenging Fiction by Renee Miller

The second you let fear participate in the writing, you’ve failed. Never be afraid. Not of the reader or yourself. Write the story that needs to be written. Write the characters that the story requires.
