Smashwords book reviews by Gates Watson

  • Grand Junction -- 6 years of Denver Cereal in 10 books on March 29, 2015

    I absolutely love this book - who wouldn't? All 6 years of Denver Cereal in one volume! You'll meet Jacob and Jill and all their assorted friends and family all in one place. You'll learn about their past, present and in some instances futures. The 'girlfriends', interactions alone are worth the time you'll spend reading this book. When you add Delphie, Val and Mike not to mention Sam and all the kids to the mix you have the makings of a fantastic read. You'll laugh, you'll cry you'll find the best of friends waiting for you right here.

    One of the most interesting books I have read in a while. The story of Liana, Liander and Jei was well written and kept me engaged throughout. The characters were well developed, the plot fast paced. I are interested to see where the next book in the series takes me.
