I actually liked this story better than [b:Wildflowers from Winter|12600025|Wildflowers from Winter|Katie Ganshert|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1333576749s/12600025.jpg|17615159]. This one had more humor and lightness, particularly from the beginning. There are serious subjects at the base of the book, but it's all handled beautifully. One thing I don't like that this author does is the flipping POV back and forth. The "flashback" chapters are told in first person. It's not particularly wrong; it just doesn't appeal to me.… (mer)

My biggest problem with the book wasn’t a plot issue, but an editing issue. The author switches from a first-person prologue to third person story, then back to first person, then back to third yet again. It was very distracting and pulled me out of the story.

As for the story, I was going to keep reading regardless, because Bethany’s relationship with her grandfather reminded me of my adoration for my own late grandfather. There may have been tears involved.

Bethany has grown up with an image of God that was warped by a slimy, overly-pious preacher, and this has affected all her relationships. Even the positive relationship with her grandfather wasn’t enough to overcome her desire to distance herself from others.

Wildflowers from Winter is a sweet story of renewed friendships and new love, but lurking at the edge of the new-found happiness is Bethany’s battle for self-sufficiency — she is scared to rely on God or anyone else — which could end up costing her everything that really matters.

I liked the story well enough to want to read the second book in the series as soon as I can get my hands on it.

I received this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Twists and turns, along with several "What just happened?" moments made this a story that I won't soon forget! The Fabrication of Eden Pruitt is geared toward young adults but this grandmother was swept away by the futuristic scenario filled with adventure, suspense, and romance. Author K.E. Ganshert has crafted a story that you don't want to miss and her cliffhanger left me yearning for the next book in the series. I recommend it to all fans of dystopian and science fiction novels.

I voluntarily accepted a digital copy of this book but there was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my thoughts.… (mer)

The story starts out giving us a look into a day in the life of Eden and her parents moving to Iowa, leaving good friends, and starting new in her Senior year of high school.

Eden is adjusting, then one day she comes home to find their home has been ransacked. Where were her parents? She runs from the house; sensing someone was there. She had to get help. Once she shares her story with police, things start to unravel in the weirdest way. Eden can’t believe all this drama. Where is her cellphone? Why can’t she reach her parents by phone?

Then author has readers enter the Twilight Zone; Eden’s world has turned upside down. And inside out. I liked all the twists and turns that keep Eden and Casson (a new friend) on their toes, and me glued to my seat. I liked figuring out this puzzle with Eden and the unique setting that sets the tone for the book. The characters are believable and relatable, and the action, adventure takes you to a whole new dimension. That keeps you guessing.

Be warned this story ends abruptly, leaving readers hanging. Have no fear book two in the series titled, The Aberration of Eden Pruitt, release date is, September 13, 2022. Good news the book is now available for preorder. I look forward to reading the next book. It’s a wonderful summer read and fun escape.
