A smartly written short romance (wish it was longer) that hooked me immediately. I was rooting all the way for Mary and Angel! Looking forward to reading more of the author's work.
Highly recommend. 5 stars. Mary Stone is in a loveless marriage with Judy who cheated on her with Susan. The fact that Susan practically lives at their house all day is grating on Mary's nerves. When Mary has a chance meeting with actress Angel Hunter at a friend's party, they strike up a conversation. Mary wants the actress to read a screenplay she wrote and Angel agrees providing they can meet again. The more time they spend together the more Mary realizes she needs to end things with Judy. But is Judy willing to let her go?
My first novella by this author and it was an enjoyable quick read. Her dialoguedriven writing style took me a bit of getting used to, but once I made that switch in my head it was ok.
themes: love triangle, celebrity, actress, loveless marriage, cheating wife, diabetes, no sex scenes.
3.8 stars This was my first EA Kafkalas book and I really enjoyed this short story. I was intrigued straight away with the chemistry between Mary and Angel and don't get me started on Judy's personality. All I will say so I don't give away any of the story is " Judy, Judy, Judy..........what were you thinking?"
I shall defiantly be seeking out more from Ms Kafkalas in the future and if you are smart so will you. A very entertaining story, my only wish was, that it was longer.
SHORT STORY ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH AUTHOR'S WEBSITE EAKAFKALAS I like the books that I can reread many times without having second thoughts. Fabulous! This may be the best short story I've read in years. Mary's Angel has the story arc of a full length book. The characters are so honest and real. Is there such a thing as a sequel to a short story? I sure hope so! Like EA's dialogue driven stories. This is short so it's hard to not give spoilers, so just read it. It was a nice thank you for joining her mailing list.
