It’s Friday Review Time
last week and read it in one day. As the reviews promised this is a grab you and not let go thriller. Sara’s Game (The Sara Winthrop Thriller Series Book 1) by Ernie Lindsey To enjoy this book all you must do is, sit back, and suspend belief for one lazy summer afternoon.
But, isn’t that just plain ole good fiction? I mean when was the last time you attended a Quiddich match at Texas Stadium?
Or fell in love with a vampire, or watched a drop dead spy hang from a helicopter as he killed the villain?
And one thing I think we can all agree on is that no Werewolf and human should mate.
So it shouldn’t be that hard to believe a mom would move heaven and earth, fight the devil himself, thwart the police and defeat a sociopath to save her three children.
Yes, good fiction can allow the reader suspend logic for a few hours and believe the unbelievable. And Mr. Lindsey did that for me.
Let’s face it, what could be more terrifying than a missing child?
Maybe three missing children and a missing husband… .
I enjoyed this fast, quick read and left the logical side of my brain at the door and went along for harrowing ride where for once the heroine defeats the psycho.
So if you’re looking for a book to read as you curl up pool side this Saturday download. Sara’s Game while it’s FREE

“Are you sure it’s okay?”
“Yeah,” he said, looking for a place to pull off the road. The gravel crunched under the car as they eased along a country road. He parked, and the engine sputtered falling silent.
“Sure no one can see us?” She shifted nervously looking out the window.
“I’m sure,” he smiled, glancing up at the
moon, “unless a werewolf shows up, I think you’ll be fine.”
Before she could protest, he pressed his lips to hers. She melted against the pressure of his tight embrace. Her eyes grew wide when she felt the sharp prick against her neck.
She pulled away, “you said I’d be safe.”
“I’m not a werewolf.” He shrugged as
blood dripped from his smiling lips.

Below is my contribution from a WIP:
From the moment she’d lost that first tooth, Lizbeth believed in faeries. Now, the proof lay open in her lap, its pages glowing with letters that shimmered and drawings that sparkled. The air hummed, alive, electric like the coming of a storm. She continued to whisper, watching in awe as the magical words breathed life into the enchanted fey.
One by one their wings fluttered, and unfolding as Monarchs from a flower they stretched lifting from the page.
