The Bucket List Dare

The Bucket List DareThe Bucket List Dare by Angela Breidenbach
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A collection of stories involving four friends from college who agree to check something off their bucket lists before they turn thirty. What a fun concept!

It’s hard to review collections, so I’ll do what I usually do and pick one of the stories. The final story, “Skydiving to Love” – written by Linda Yezak whose writing I LOVE! – was hands down my favorite. Spunky, feisty, and funny, JoJo Merritt blurts out that skydiving is her bucket list dare. There’s one little thing she didn’t consider about her choice. She’s never in her life flown in an airplane, much less thought of jumping out of one. When hunky and handy Mitch O’Hara offers to help, she pushes aside her misgivings and decides to accept. If you have to fall to your death from an airplane, it might as well be while strapped to a good-looking guy.

If you’re looking for something light and lively to read this weekend, this is a great choice.

Other great books by Linda Yezak include:
The Cat Lady’s Secret
Give the Lady a Ride
The Simulacrum
Writing in Obedience

    Thanks, Pegg. Yes, Linda’s is a fun read for sure. I enjoyed it too. It was fun being a part of this collection and I think there is something for everyone in all four of the stories.

      Loved your story too, Pam! You chose a timely topic with PTSD and handled it so well.

        LOL, I wasn’t fishing for a compliment, but I’ll take it. I’m not shy :-).

    I wouldn’t have said it if I didn’t mean it. 🙂
