Book review - Nola Fran Evie, Britt Skrabanek

I guessed Britt Skrabenek’s third book was going to be good. What I wasn’t expecting was to be taken on quite such a roller coaster. It starts a little jerkily with four main characters and three time frames but it soon gathers pace and takes the reader on a great ride. 281 more words


Britt Skrabanek reblogged this on a physical perspective and commented:

Five star reviews for my darling third novel, NOLA FRAN EVIE, started popping up on Amazon and Amazon UK over the weekend...woot!

"Rich characters, snappy dialogue, and fluid writing make this book a wonderful way to spend a few hours."

"The characters come to life on the page and at turns, you root for each of them. Funny, moving, nostalgic and fast-paced, this is the best book Britt has written yet. Thoroughly recommended."

A big thank you to those readers for taking the time to be awesome and review! Today I'm stoked to share this fabulous review from blogger pal Roy McCarthy at Back on the Rock. He has been kind enough to leave sterling reviews for all three of my books so far, and I am very grateful for his support. Be sure to swing by and read the full piece. And, obviously, see what all the fuss is about and snatch up a copy of NOLA FRAN EVIE on Amazon for yourself. You'll be doing a good deed for a lovable indie author, yours truly, and in return you get to be entertained for a bit. : ) Happy Sunday, loves!
