Review of Show Off Anthology Edited By Joe Bunting

Description (From Amazon)

Cover links to amazon

Ten stories about love, loss, betrayal, and hope chosen out the best of a years worth of stories on Florene, a three-time beauty queen, is betrayed by the pastor she's having an affair with, but finds her own way to get revenge. Ray is a floundering Vietnam veteran who confronts the wounds of the past to help his controversial neighbors. A dying cowboy says goodbye to his horses after one last ride. These are the stories we hold in the secret places of our soul. These are the stories we rarely show off.

New fiction by Patricia W Hunter, Lisa Burgess, Tara Boyce, Nancy Vandre, Dominic Laing, Kristi Boyce, Morgan O'Connor, Bob Vander Lugt, Debra Atwood, and Marla Cantrell.

My Review

A great Anthologoly of short stories exploring a wide range of human emotions. They are all stoires from the heart and as such touch the heart. My favourites were, A Place To Call Home, The Ride, On Behalf of Love and The Driver.

If you are looking for a quick read, you can't go far wrong with this collection.

I give Show Off Anthology 4 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Rating System:
1 star: I will never post a 1 star review because this means it was so bad I couldn't finish it, and I don't won't publicly rate a book I haven't read all the way through.
2 stars: I may have liked the story but it was badly written or it may have been a boring story well written. Something about it kept me reading but I didn't enjoy it.
3 stars: A good, enjoyable read. If the description appeals to you I'd recommend reading it.
4 stars: A really good book that I thoroughly enjoyed and may even read again. I will want to read other books by the same author. Highly recommend.
5 stars: Reserved for books that blew me away and whose characters I can't get out of my head. These are books that I will definitely read again, possibly several times. If I read an e-book version I may even have to go buy a hard copy for my shelves. Why are you still here? Go read this book right now.
