I am just over half way through reading Single-Wide (Trailer Park Wives Book One) by Denise Gwen and it is proving to be a racy and entertaining read – can’t believe I got this entire novel for free! It’s brilliant and it’s the full book! Not just a sample, most of them are in this promotion.
Like I said, I haven’t finished reading it just yet, going off the first half, I will most likely be giving it five stars in my review, which will read something like this:
Single-Wide is set in an Ohio trailer park which is fantastically illustrated in the prose, I could totally imagine myself living in one of those trailers, which in my head I am comparing to the static caravans of UK holidaymakers. This set of female friends live in their trailers permanently, setting their sights low, they dream of living in a ‘double-wide’. Intrigue is introduced into the plot early on when the friends attend the funeral of Anne-Marie. The story unfolds into these women putting themselves into all kinds of risky situations including a metabolic syndrome inducing diet and tasering someone at work. The characters are believable and entertainingly dance around the cliches that exist in real life (A woman takes on a mothering role for her younger dancing colleague and a disappointed wife eats an entire birthday cake all to herself). As I am getting into the second half of the book, danger and drama increase. Here’s the blurb, plus a few more from this BookFunnel promotion (that one of my books is available on!)
Can life in the nastiest trailer park in Ohio get any worse?
Why, oh why, did Anne Marie Whitehall take her own life, swallowing away her pain and her grief with a handful of Nembutal capsules and a bottle of Merlot?
Does Samantha Jacobs, the red-haired vixen, grinding away on a pole at the Revue, know?
Or perhaps Deena Cook, harried mother of four, and a regular visitor at Children’s Services?
Or does Cierra Maldonado, mother of two children by two different men, not receiving a penny of child support, and working as a cocktail waitress at a chi-chi club in downtown Cincinnati, know why?
Or perhaps Lettie Robinson, a four-hundred pound housewife of three healthy and hungry little boys, who knows the meat display at Wal-Mart better than the inside of her own trailer, know?
Well, someone knows why Anne Marie Whitehall committed suicide, but she isn’t talking.
And everyone wants to know who the raven-haired, glacially thin woman is who’s walking around the trailer park and sending secret notes to certain dear—and dearly departed—friends.
I also read Teardrops and Flipflops by Lark Griffing. A delightful short story about Ruby coping with bereavement in her caravan. Available free are the sample chapters, but do read as a complete short story, try it! You might want to read the whole book.
More about Teardrops and Flip Flops by Lark Griffing
Ruby’s love life has gone to the dogs. Literally.
Ruby always longed for adventure – hiking for months on end or living like a gypsy in an RV – but instead, she settled for a comfortable relationship with a man who worshipped her.
That is until he died, leaving her a teardrop trailer and the permission to find her adventure and a true love who would curl her toes.
What did she wind up with?
A stray dog who just might be her dead husband reincarnated and a good-looking photographer sniffing after her who thinks Ruby is fantastic.
The dog is not amused.
Ruby is conflicted.
Can Ruby move past the pain of losing her husband, follow her heart, and find what she has always been looking for?
Can her dog stop growling at men long enough for her to figure out what she wants?
Can any man tolerate the package that is Ruby and the dog, George?
I read Tidal Wave by David Berens, this is the prequel to his ‘Wave’ series about his character Troy Bodean. The first half of this book is Troy’s army time in Afghanistan. Advertised as a humour read, I did wonder when human bones started arriving through the post, but when the reader finds out what is really going on, dark humour is revealed.
More about Tidal Wave by David Berens
Troy Bodean is a rambling man traveling the U.S.A. on a mission to find some peace and quiet.
Afghanistan brings a ransom plot trading the victim’s fingers for money (one by one.)
Vegas brings a romance with a secretly married stripper whose mafioso husband isn’t too happy about it.
New Orleans brings a new job on a shrimping boat. Only problem is the current captain might have killed the previous one.
Troy just can’t catch a break. Read all about it in the prequel to the hit Troy Bodean Tropical Thriller series. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry laughing, and then you’ll laugh some more.
