    Short story

    One of the better short stories. Predictable, some of the characters and plot left hanging at the end (so must assume that further installments are coming)! Likeable characters and story, would have benifited from a longer story with more detail.

    Could have been four stars

    I cannot understand why a writer feels lthe need to graphic sex scenes in their writing. It just makes them trashy

    As the saying goes "SHORT BUT SWEET." I didn't read t

    As the saying goes "SHORT BUT SWEET." I didn't read these in order and I didn't feel lost. I realize it was only 88 pages where Lillian's story is about twice that amount and it ended all wrapped up. I realize this was free and clearly a novella, but if the author would have just included an Epilogue of only a few pages I would have given it 5 stars. There is more suspense in Lillian's story, but this had some drama too. One lovemaking scene, and not descriptive. (ljb)

    Although i enjoyed most patrs of this book,

    Although i enjoyed most parts of this book, it was ruined by a love scene that was completly uncalled for. I know some people enjoy that, but for those of you who dont, its pretty bad. You have been warned.
