Thanks to readers who have sent us their comments on Life in Spades and allowed us to share them with you.  Frances doesn’t like knowing anything about the next page of a book, so there are no “spoilers” here – so that you can continue to enjoy the story, plot points & story endings have been replaced by [play spades!] note.

I finished “Life in Spades”!  Frances did a great job and I certainly wouldn’t have been able to tell this was her first published novel.  I felt the most satisfied with Laura’s story and it seemed like her journey was complete.  Cookie was my next favorite, but I would like to have seen her relationship with the delivery guy develop more, or at the very least to hear her work her way into believing she was ready to move on.  Gina was a hot mess and I was glad that she …[played spades!]  However what happened after that?  Sherry was my least favorite character and I’m not sure why but I was glad she decided to …[play spades]!  — H.E.

Loved, loved, loved every moment of it. A very heart-warming and positive story of sisterhood, hope and enduring love. You really brought the characters to life and made me want to know more about them through each turn of the page. Your descriptive language and dialogue was spot on. I felt like I do when I always read a good book…like I’m inside the story with the characters.  This was such a refreshing read. Hated to see it end. — T.E. James
