Jenny's stuck.

She's tried just about every occupation she can think of and will be digging out of student debt for a very long time, but has nothing to show for it. Her everyday routine feels like a prison. And her marriage? Well, let's just say it's been a little one-sided lately and the money she threw down on the toys from Lover's Erotic Store was well worth it and then some.

Jenny decides her next big step is to become a romance writer. Romance books are flying off the virtual shelves, after all. This will be her big break, her escape from the prison, and a way to freedom. Self-publishing is all the rage these days. She'll be a best seller in no time.

When Jenny makes friends with a woman named Cassandra from the gym, she instantly decides that her new friend will make a perfect main character in her upcoming book. After the first chapter, real life begins to resemble the fiction she's writing. Her friendship blossoms, sex with her husband turns into a daily feast, and her job gets more interesting with each chapter written.

Out of the blue, a person who is a close friend with her husband and who is dating Cassandra disappears. As the mystery behind the missing person unfolds, Jenny wonders if she might be responsible for his possible death. And if she is, what will be the consequence? What has this writing business gotten her into?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

At first I thought Jenny was in an early mid-life crisis. With a stable job, an amazing husband and twin girls she just couldn’t seem to find  content or happiness in  life. She then decides to fall back into her writing. As the story continues,  we  witness a story emerging from this story.

Keeping the two separate was a challenge for me in the beginning but after I got used to this distinct type of writing I found it easier since the stories are entirely different.

75% in I was thinking where is this all of this going? For a novella it was making me feel anxious. Then I get to the end and I’was  jaw-droppingly dumbfounded. That did  not just  happen, did it? I had to reread the last  chapters over and over again. This one just threw me through a loop and blew my mind away.

The story certainly played some mindgames on me. So if you are looking for a total mindf*ck – this  definitely is a good one.

About Angela Carlie

I’ve lived in the state of Washington my entire life. Sure, it rains a lot, but that’s what makes it so beautiful here. I’d like to say it’s the most beautiful place on the planet, but I have yet to travel the world. Someday I’ll know for sure.

I write fiction involving young people. Mainstream publishing would label my writing as YA or middle grade. Since I’m an indie author, I can skip over the labels and tell you that each one of my stories is unique, can be read and enjoyed by all ages, and almost always has a young person as the protagonist. Authors write what they know and I don’t know old yet. I may someday write about older people, but that’s so far in the future that I can’t see it yet.
