Review of Spare Change by Sherri – The Reader Salute

Sherri wrote a great review of my USA Today Bestseller Spare Change:

Ethan Allen Doyle, an eleven year old boy witnesses a brutal murder. He is on the run fearing for his life. He has a pocket with a some “spare change” and is set on looking for his Grandfather, a Grandfather he never met. What he finds is Olivia Westerly, his grandfathers widow. It took her forty years to marry, she is very superstitious and she is not particularly fond of children. But when Ethan shows up at her door both their lives are about to change forever.

I could not help but liking Ethan, he had all odds against him, but he had determination. Determined to live a “normal” life. As quirky as Olivia is, I really liked her.She goes through some life altering changes, which (to me) built her character. Spare Change is a story of loss , love, family, devotion and redemption.

Bette Lee Crosby knows how to make words flow off each page, and bring (her) characters to life. A well written story told from each persons perspective, the blend of alternating from each (person) worked very well. I got the feel of what they were thinking and feeling. I was so engrossed I could not put it down. I highly recommend to all.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
