Read with SNACKS! Review of "The Secrets Of The Ghosts-- The Sleeper."



     Good Evening Readers of the wee hours! And Thanks for joining me for the first installment of the 131 Preview Review.

     I had the great opportunity of sampling “Secrets of The Ghosts- The Sleeper” Book one of "The Secrets of the Ghosts Trilogy". Brought to us by Author Solease M. Barner.



     The first thing I will say is a word of caution, be ready for a world full of action, turmoil and internal struggle. And Food! Lot’s of food. It is our Heroine’s great relaxer, and if you read this woman’s menu on an empty stomach, you are sure to be starving and raiding the fridge by chapter five! I know I did!

     So let us look at the story so far. We have Holiday Mary Jones-Towley. A wife, mother, and wedding planner with a secret that has been eating at her for many years. She is no ordinary upper-middle class house wife, not by any stretch of the imagination.  Before settling in picturesque Novi, Michigan, she was witness to her parents brutal slaying, which put her into the hands of Ava, (Mother) the trainer for the ASG (Agency of Secret Ghosts) a hush, hush Government Organization that takes wayward kids, preferably and almost exclusively female, shapes, molds and desensitizes them in to the perfect assassins. They are no one, intangible, and once you are in their cross hairs soon to shall you be.

     Now this was more than enough to pull any reader in. I mean who doesn't love the secret agent motif. Let’s face it; there just aren't enough women out there with a “License to Kill.”  By chapter three, aptly titled Changing sides, Holiday is faced with the knowledge that the woman Ava, who has been like a mother to her and her adoptive sisters, all part of the ASG as well, has set her sights on her two year old daughter, Evey, which unleashes Holiday’s protective streak, calling in her sisters to keep Ava’s calculating hands off of the child and away from the rest of her family, which has decided now is the time to drop in and say “Hello.”

     As if the threatening crisis of her two worlds colliding were not stress enough, an ex-lover is thrown into the mix and an underlying threat of something called “The Sleeper,” has Holiday’s senses all a flutter. She must find away to balance the two worlds or risk endangering not only the lives of her husband and daughter, but that of her sisters and in-laws as well. But even the most deeply buried secrets have a way of bubbling to the surface when the waters get high enough.

     If you have a need for high intrigue, gut twisting psychological turmoil and a bit of fun at the expense of a good meal, then I highly recommend picking up, “Secrets of The Ghosts- The Sleeper.” I know I was pleasantly surprised.
           Cheers! And Happy Reading, and Writing!
