You Shouldn't Judge a Book by Its Cover

This week I had the opportunity to review the book Winter Haven by Athol Dickson. I was given a brief review of the book several weeks ago and it intrigued me. When I received the book I will admit that I briefly thought that I was no longer interested based on the cover. However, I was soon proven very wrong. This book kept me intrigued from the first chapter. I am normally a person who cannot go to sleep unless I finish a chapter. Mr. Dickson left each chapter with a cliffhanger worthy of any dramatic series on TV. I found myself having to pick a stopping point in the middle of a chapter just so I would be able to sleep and not find myself lying in bed wondering what was going to happen to Vera next. I hightly recommend you go to your nearest bookstore or check out Amazon for this great find!

Read below for a quick preview of this book! And enjoy! It is worth your time to pick this one up and read it. Thank you Mr. Dickson for entertaining my mind this past week. It was a pleasure to spend my evening trapped between the pages of your book.
