I received Book 1 from the author to review in exchange for my honest opinion
I love short story books that you can pick and put down whenever the mood strikes you. This one fit the bill perfectly. The stories were funny, some made you think, all were worth reading and leave the reader with something. Personally I think the first story in this book is the funniest. It’s very much something my husband, a Tim Taylor wanna be, would do. Whether your smiling, laughing or thinking, this book is worth the read!
