My review of The Tree In My Front Yard by Kimberly Biller

This is a fiction book. The author Kimberly Biller writes of a girl named sissy that sits up in a tree in her front yard, her favorite place to be. Sissy tells us about what she sees up in that tree. I had a ball reading this, it’s so funny. The words are meant to be just how there written, because sissy is from the south. Please read this book it’s a good time. Look for this author on Smashwords and Amazon. Kimberley had a few more books out. I wouldn’t hesitate reading them after this book. Thank you for sharing Kimberley.

My review of The Depot by Carmen DeSousa

This story takes place at a old train station turned bar- restaurant.Mark is a detective, he was there because there was a suicide or murder on the tracks behind the depot. A very rich 25 year old was hit by a train. Mark was asking the owner questions. He told mark the guy started coming in at night for awhile now, but he doesn’t know him. He said his waitress was seeing him or at least he thought so. Ashlyn was a waitress and bartender at the depot, she was going to college for business. Her mother told her ” woman don’t need men to make it in this world”. Ashlyn thought differently, she thought she needed men to make it. She wanted a man with money and his own business. Ashlyn thought she found that with Devin Burke. Mark has seen Ashlyn around the depot but never pursued her, he was married to his job. He thought she was beautiful. The owner of the depot  had cameras all over and gave mark the cassette of that night the murder happened. Mark looked at it and saw Ashlyn in it  but thought this tape couldn’t be from that night. He calls Ashlyn the next day and asked to talk with her. Ashlyn is nervous and doesn’t call him right away. Marks boss says the police commissioner is all over him to solve this case because Devins father has clout and is making waves. Mark goes to the depot that night acting like a customer. Ashlyn notices the nice looking man in a suit sitting at the darkest table and goes over to take his order. Ashlyn decides to call him while she’s at work and tell him she’ll call when she’s not so busy. Mark doesn’t want to think Ashlyn could have anything to do with the murder. He watches her thru the night. She talks with him a few times during the night to makes sure he has everything he wants. They feel an attraction to each other. I’ve told you enough, now buy the book to see what happens next. You won’t be disappointed. Carmen never disappoints. They say the depot is haunted..mawhhh..
