The “She” Stands Alone

Keels, Nadine C. The “She” Stands Alone. Smashwords. 2014.

shestandsDumped by gorgeous David, Sheridan Jones is heartbroken. Vowing to be done with men, “She Sher” (as she calls herself) styles a new hairdo, flaunts a new pair of red boots, and obtains a new attitude all her own…until the neighbor-mailman, Eugene, starts to show an interest in this contemporary romance…

Trusting her reviews of books, I was thrilled to be granted the chance to review one of fellow-blogger-friend Nadine Keels’ own stories. As a novelette (48 pages), this short story developed the characters surprisingly well. With strong messages of being comfortable in your own skin as well as not judging a book by the cover (or a person by his hair), this likable novelette felt much longer, while still being a very quick read. Perhaps a bit of confusing self-dialog in the beginning, once I caught on to the style, I so enjoyed the self-talks with Sheridan! Humor, good advice and life-lessons all ravel together for a deeper but surely entertaining piece.

3.5 (out of 5) pennies
*Rating based largely on length of story (being a novelette vs. full-length), writing quality alone would be rated higher.

*I received a complimentary copy of The “She” Stands Alone from the author for my honest review*
