*I received this e-book for a review as part of the FMB Blog Tour.  You can see the full tour schedule above.*


Who likes change?  Not very many people I know.  Everyone gets comfortable in their routines, with their friends and family.  There is always something that causes a change in day to day routine...at least in my life there is!  This short story is all about the unpredictable moments that can cause life to change immediately.

A well written short story.  It has all of the elements that make a story a good one.  The character is developed, the plot develops, the plot thickens, and the problem is solved...end of story.

The only negative thing I have to say about this one is something I say about most short stories...the character wasn't developed as much as I would have liked it.  I didn't feel an emotional connection at all.  The element for an emotional connection is there...if the story was a bit longer it would have tugged on my emotional side for sure.

Definitely a good read for those short bus rides, or those quick breaks at work.
