A Southern Season

A Southern Season: Stories from a Front Porch SwingA Southern Season: Stories from a Front Porch Swing by Eva Marie Everson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Yikes! I can’t believe I didn’t review this when I read it. Well … slap me with a wooden spoon! Better late than never. 🙂

I’m a huge fan of Linda Yezak’s writing. Her humor, her characters, and her lively way of putting words on the page, so I’m going to concentrate on her story in this collection, “Ice Melts in Spring.” This one is different than Linda’s other stories, a bit more serious, a bit deeper in some aspects, but still the same lively writing that brings the reader right into the story. AND it has a dog in it. I’m a sucker for any story with a good dog in it. Buy it. Read it. Enjoy it.

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
