The following is a brief review of a brief overview. I am a fan of Kindle Unlimited (KU) and frequently mention it in my book reviews as a good alternative to the high costs of books in my expat living situation (Indonesia).
Kindle Unlimited: Is It Right for YOU? by Charles Wright is described in the following subtitle: “A Brief Guide to Understand the Positives and Negatives.” At eleven pages, it meets the requirements of brief. For me, the authorship was confusing. Released in 2015 by author Sherry Everett, it appears here as written by Charles Wright. I will place my question about why this is so in the basket for things I no longer care about and will not investigate further. Because I am an avid fan of Kindle Unlimited (it works well for me) I wanted to see what others thought the negatives were. Being a positive person, here we go.

There is a lot to like in The Butterfly Garden by Dot Hutchison. I first liked the simplicity yet expressiveness of the cover (at least in the Kindle selection I read.) There is a butterfly, the novel’s name, and the author’s name. There are no blaring font announcements that this is a thrilling psychological thriller (that will leave you gasping).

Nine, Ten … Never Sleep Again by Willow Rose is book number five in the Rebekka Frank series, the last book in a five-volume boxed set. I liked this one best and was looking forward to reading other series by this talented author. At the end of this volume, I found, however, that there are two other volumes in the Rebekka Frank series. Volume five ended in such a satisfactory manner that I can’t imagine what further horrible things could take place in the life of Rebekka Franck. She has had enough unusual serial killer events for five “ordinary” people. What more could possibly happen to her? A visit to Amazon free samples gave me the answer and I am sure I will soon read the other two books in the series.

Death on Lake Michigan by Steve Arnett is a 225-page 13-chapter mystery novel published in 2015. On the one hand I found it to be a good example of linear interesting storytelling and on the other hand, I felt uncomfortable with characters popping up just because the story needed a character to supply a small bit of needed information. I felt there were too many unneeded characters in the story.

The Wrong House to Burgle was offered to me by the author through a website. It is a short story published in 2017 that serves as a preview of the author’s writing style. If I liked this story, I would probably download some of the author’s longer works.
