  • Wonderful short tales of fascinating characters wr

    JUST IN CASE was a delightful, fast read, which I finished in just half a day. The stories are short, vivid, and left me wanting more. The author weaves tales using carefully chosen imaginative words that not only set a scene, but get us deep into character point of view. The shortest is just a half a page and the longest was probably less than ten, but the amount of real estate had nothing to do with the reading experience. I devoured each one, then reread it to savor it, to marvel at the author’s ability to use words as if she was wielding magic, making us see and feel with intensity. My favorite was the tale of a mailman and his favorite customer, a man with wolf-dog hybrids, but I don’t have a least favorite. They were all so very good. I will be reading more by Laura McHale Holland! What I Loved About JUST IN CASE 1. The Writing. The author has the ability to draw me deeply into a story that takes no more than five minutes to read. 2. The Length. As someone with ADD, I loved that I could read a story while I was waiting for water to boil or my computer to boot up. I could set it down and not have to remember where I was because that story was over. 3. Reader Interpretation. Due to the nature of the storytelling, so much is left for the reader to interpret, and each one had me thinking about it long after I was done reading. 4. Quirky Characters. Many of the tales had richly drawn characters that were fun and a little different, making them a delight to read. 5. Darker Subject Matter. I loved the darker tones of many of the stories without ever becoming macabre. Perfect for reading during an autumn evening by a warm fire. Bottom Line Wonderful short tales of fascinating characters wrapped up in spectacular storytelling. Disclaimer I was provided with a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
