  1. Amazon would not allow me to post this review, however, it can be found on my blog. Here is my review of ‘A Soldier’s Children,’ by Jan Sikes:
    I found myself emotionally invested in the characters, anger at their dead-beat mother who abandons her children to fend for themselves. Who does that? I know the mother was mentally distraught over the death of her husband, but I found myself unable to forgive her actions.

    Despite my disgust for Mom,  I couldn’t help but admire the courage and resilience of young Jennifer, a teenager pushed to a station far above her years. She demonstrates incredible maturity, ‘quick-on-the-feet’ intelligence, and a ‘can-do’ attitude. Her younger sister, Emily, is adorable and her kindness towards feline, Miss Daisy, is a tell-tale sign that she shares her sister’s traits.

    This is a poignant tale, yet the above-mentioned qualities of the main characters, combined with the kindness shown by Mr. Parker and the owner of the antique store is heart-warming.

    This is a quick-read that can easily and pleasantly be devoured on a bus ride to, or from, work. The following sentence is the best way I can describe it.

    A Soldier’s Children is a professional-grade firework compacted into firecracker size. A small package with a massive emotional impact!

    I give this book a FIVE STAR rating.

  4. Amazon would not accept my review of D.L.Finn’s Bigfoot A Short Story.
    Here is the review – 5 Star
    D.L Finn got the reader hooked when she opened the story with a question on why the lake was being poisoned. We do find out the answer as well as the plausible existence of Bigfoot. The story is short and the plot tight, so any more discussion of the story might expose some of the ever-present spoiler opportunities.
    All the reader needs to know is the story is tense, well written, and will leave you wanting more of this story. It is a rapid, satisfying read, and I would recommend this book to anyone regardless of genre preference.

  5. Amazon would not allow me to post my review for “When Can I Stop Running” by John Podlaski, so here you go. I gave this RRBC BOM 4 Stars.
    This book is written from a first-hand perspective of a man who served in the Viet Nam war. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was interesting to me how he switched from the soldiers’ present precarious situation to childhood memories that were triggered by the events unfolding. There were times I held my breath and times when I had to chuckle. This story is told in such a way that I was able to put myself there beside L.G. and Polack as they endured a long night of LP (Listening Patrol). Not only was the assignment dangerous, but amplified by total darkness and the animals and insects of the Viet Nam jungle. I couldn’t wait for morning to come so they could return to base camp; that is if they survived the night. A well-told story from a man who was there!

  6. Amazon would not allow me to ost a review of Red Eyes in the Darkness. Here is my five-star review

    Red Eyes in The Darkness by D.L.Finn

    Just when you thought it safe to retire and relax a thing called “It “comes into your life. It not only comes in but murders a family member. If that is not enough, the thing which is, in reality, the husband of the murdered woman spreads a bunch of lies about you. Now even your own children won’t talk to you, and the police consider you a person of interest. Time to hit the road in hopes the “It” will be found out.

    This is just a short rundown of the plot. To keep spoilers to a minimum, let me just say this short story was written by D. L. Finn to scare the bejesus out of you. You see, Finn has created these creatures called Evildwels. You guessed it. They take over humans and are not beneficial to have around. You can tell if one has entered someone you know because they will have red eyes. Hence the title of this short story.

    If you love tension and scary stuff in your stories, you’ll love this one.
