If you enjoy snickering while reading (I do), and prefer unique plots (who doesn’t), populated by characters who are anything but “same old”, you may have found your next read in Hounded, by Wisconsin author, Anita Klumpers.

“The Gift of Friendship” review by Susan

53 tales of extravagent friendship. Contributed by dozens of female authors, this is a book celebrating women’s friendships. It would make a special, wonderful gift.

An engaging set of characters, combined with just the right amounts of tension, conflict and mystery, provide a satisfying read.
