Unfortunately, looks, and   the Andrews siblings, can be deceiving. Their true chaotic, manipulative   & promiscuous lives are revealed when their often abusive & alcoholic   father dies under bizarre circumstances. Soon, the doorway to dark family   secrets is slung open at the funeral, where many dust covered skeletons begin   tumbling out; threatening the pedestals that Brenda and Brian once stood on,   plunging them into a dangerous descent that they may never be able to come   back from!

BRT   Review Title: Thoroughly   entertaining and fun!
BRT   Review: This book took me on a rollercoaster of emotions and even as I’m   writing this now I’m chuckling. Both of the main characters are relatable or   familiar, but Brian is most assuredly the one you’ll love to hate. In fact,   there may be more than one character you’ll dislike greatly, but they are offset by other good counterparts. I appreciated the instances of comic relief intertwined with the suspenseful plot that kept me guessing. If you’re a prude however; this book would probably offend you, since there is a lot of profanity and some graphic sex scenes, but luckily I’m not easily shocked. Dare I say that in the midst of all the chaos, there is a developing growth and love story for both main characters. The cliffhanger at the end was a   surprise and leaves the door wide open for a sequel. I’m impressed with this book as a new author, although I noticed a few typos, it didn’t take away from the story.  Great book review talk! But you be the judge.

BRT Review Title:  Surprisingly original and captivating!
BRT Review:  This was a fantastic and captivating read. I really appreciated the writing style and the lucid way the story was delivered; so much so that in reading it, I pledged internally to work with Hosea Feed The Hungry (a charitable entity in Georgia) this year. The book itself is not about helping the homeless, but the key character in the story, who is a homeless man who is the catalyst for interactions between all the other characters, is a homeless man. Dee Doanes descriptive narrating brings you right into the fold of the story and transformations that some characters make are not only surprising at times, but touching. As it turns out, the man with the green suitcase is a fortune-teller of sorts who bestows visions to those in his presence, whether solicited or not. The characters find rather succinctly that what’s done in the dark, always comes to light. For some of the characters, the light is bright…but not always! Great book review talk! But you be the judge.

BRT Review Title:  Vivid, twisted and engulfing
BRT Review:  Kudos to Evan Bollinger for creating a vivid and enthralling story where you can wrap yourself into the mind of a child as he chases a creature that keeps you teetering between the realms of reality and fantasy. I never thought there was such a thing as being “too detailed” but, at times I did find myself skipping through indepthly descriptive portions of the story to get to the meat of the scene. Clearly a talented writer, Evan’s verbiage sometimes reminds me of Stephen King, but can become rather long-winded, without using run-on sentences, if such a thing is possible. Despite that minor flaw, the story line kept my interest throughout and the creepy discoveries that are more reality than not, including an unfortunate happenstance to a young girl is frightening. If you’re tired of predictability and guessing the ending 3 chapters early…you won’t be disappointed this time. He leaves you with your jaw dropped. Good review talk! But you be the judge.
