HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW

This is a book of only 57 pages and contains 5 very short stories, mainly with, ‘the morale of the story’ kind of warning. For me the stories were more of a coffee time break quick read rather than take on holiday for the side of the pool.

Each of these stories have very strong female characters in them with some directed at punishing the male characters for past deeds against family and friends. This includes using blackmail tactics.  It did exaggerate some of the types of behaviour of certain men which would just normally be put down to selfishness and arrogance, but  in one story particularly the vengeance was leaning more to the side of ‘single white female’  spectrum rather than just pay back.

There are also some more light hearted stories too, which do have that good feel factor about them.

I would like to see this author writing a novella with just one story. I am sure it would definitely hold the readers attention if any of these 5 are to go by.
