Titillating Read, October 12, 2010

Interesting Plot, September 27, 2010
Covenant of Lies, The Revealed Truth, by Holly Spence revolved around a fantastic plot with interesting and creative characters.  I found it to be an entertaining and well thought through book that touched on many of life’s everday issues.  I feel however that it was void of descriptions and rushed.  I feel that overall if the author would have been more descriptive in placing the reader in each setting and giving the essence of the characters emotions, it would have been more enjoyable.  I think if was a good plot but the author didn’t draw me into the book to get a full experience.  I do see lots of potential from Holly Spence and am honored to take part in her literary growth.  I am confident that she will do great things in the literary industry.  Covenant of Lies, The Revealed Truth is available on Amazon.

Sebri Bookclub Rating: 4.5 – An Entertaining & Educational Journey, September 16, 2010

The main character in this book Kayin, is an extremely gullible college student in Oklahoma who has lived a productive life even at his young age of 21.  He has never been involved in any criminal or negative activities that his cousin has embarked on.  He already has a very negative opinion of whites in Oklahoma and has never had any contact or relations with the white citizens of Oklahoma
His life and plans for his future are railroaded when he gives his cousin a ride.  Without giving too much of the story away, drugs are found during a traffic stop. 
Bowens uses a very creative style of writing by taking the reader on a journey through the past and the present.  The story journeys back and forth from historical experiences of African-Americans to Kayin's present situation.  The result is the reader getting a good dose of black history ( including slavery, segregation, and the prison system) and an entertaining and heartfelt dramatic read.  The Education of Black Dickey is available on Amazon.

Sebri Bookclub Rating 4.0, September 5, 2010

In this novel, author Holly Spence tells the story of everyday individuals and the problems and heartache they encounter. The situations that the characters find themselves in are unimaginable, but believable and real. Some may find themselves judging the characters while others may sympathize. In any case it tugs at your emotions and causes one to really ponder the consequences of following temptation.

Sebri Bookclub Rating 4.0 Entertaining Read, September 4, 2010 

 In WE BELONG TOGETHER, Sandy was totally brain washed by her mentally disturbed grandmother. Her grandmother has her convinced that she will marry Makai Wilson. Makai is her best friends husband and a real ladies man who cheats on his wife constantly. She has mental issues of her own and has it in her mind that she will have him to herself one day. There are numerous twists and turns in this whodunit that will definitely keep you turning the pages.
In WE BELONG TOGETHER, Barbara Grovner grabs your attention from the first page with a fast moving plot and scenarios that are quite shocking. There were some editing issues and points of view became shifty and confusing towards the end of the book. Other than these minor issues, I strongly recommend this book and look forward to more from this author.   We Belong Together is  available on Amazon.
