"The content does indeed capture the reader. I was doing a happy dance, singing, 'This is why became an editor!, and my own dog looked at me like, 'lady, what are you doing?' I was certainly pulled into the story, and couldn't wait to read more. This is a must read for anyone who loves a good story captured in its own style ."
