    A Wild Ride on the Dot Com Roller Coaster!

    I enjoyed Soft Candy very much -- a real page-turner! I had trouble putting it down and, like Mr. Lenzen's next novel, Disturbingly Normal, I lost sleep because I could not stop reading it. The story and characters take hold of you and draw you in, refusing to let go.

    Combining the morals of "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is" with the dangers of getting too much too fast makes it a "word to the wise" lesson, as well. I highly recommend Soft Candy to anyone who wants a novel that will take them on an "E-Ticket" ride!
