Book Reviews

Written By: carolmoye - Aug• 06•15

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted a book review. My life has been quite full, and I just didn’t have the time. Today, I am posting two.

The first one is a cute novella. It’s called Take me Away. It’s a romance written by a very prolific Christian author, Suzanne Williams. She was looking for reviewers. I was looking for something relaxing to read: “Win, Win.”

Here’s my review:

Take Me AwayTake Me Away by Suzanne D. Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love reading novellas when I am stressed. Although romances are not generally my first choice, they are the perfect thing to relax me on a stressful day. This one did not disappoint. The characters were likable and well-developed. The plot was full of surprises and just enough twists to keep me interested. It was the kind of book I could read in two sittings, which was exactly what I needed. I was given a copy of this book for review purposes.


The other book was Sewing Can Be Dangerous and Other Small Threads. I loved it! It was quite an original concept. The author wrote a collection of short stories based on some very difficult historical events, each one related to sewing. These include the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City (1911) that revolutionized the labor industry, “Kristallnacht” (The Night of Broken Glass in Nazi Germany), American slavery, and many more.

My Goodreads review is below:

I downloaded the Kindle version when it was available for free, then was given a copy of the Audible version for review purposes. I thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to these wonderful stories. As others have stated, Ms. Mallery is a wonderful storyteller. She does a masterful job of weaving together tales that are historically accurate, yet thrilling. Her characters are great, the pace is fast, the plot well-developed with just enough twists and turns to keep the reader engaged. Great job!

    Sarah Mallery has such a way with ‘words’. A coffee, duvet and a snuggle-down read of this wonderful and unique selection of stories. Most enjoyable.
