A book review: ESCAPE TO LOVE by Cher Green

I'm on a roll. Not only did I completed the final edits for my sequel to Broken but not Dead, I spent the last 2 weeks breaking the story into the 8 sequences and 3 Acts that I learned from Alex Sokoloff's online course on story breakdown. (Excellent  course if you get the opportunity).

Now I'm free to catch up on all those books I've been meaning to read. I think it's imperative to distance oneself from a newly completed manuscript, so I've set the manuscript aside, and I'm determined not to go near it for the next 2 to 3 weeks.






My timing couldn't be better. Turns out today is the first day of summer on Cluculz Lake. Better late than never, I suppose.


Here's my review of a wonderful little historical romance novella titled:


Escape to Love by Cher Green



Escape to Love
eTreasure Publishing, 2011
pages: Novella, 58

Cher Green loves the written word and has made it a life goal to share her stories with others. She writes in many genres, but admits that Escape to Love was the most fun to write than any of her other stories. I suspect that’s because Escape to Love transcends the usual Sweet Historical Romance and encompasses modern day magic. Cher’s work has appeared in such magazines as, “Untied Shoelaces of the Mind,” and “Spinetinglers.” For more information on Cher, visit: http://www.chergreen.com


Escape to Love by Cher Green
Constance Spenser, an aspiring witch, considers herself ordinary, but she has more magic in her than even she realizes. Lonely, yearning for something more, Constance casts a spell that literally drops her into a dangerous new/old world. Unsure who her friends are, she draws on her faith to fight the greatest evil of all: ignorance.

But Constance now faces the ultimate dilemma. Can she kill a powerful council who have crippled this strange world for too long? Can she risk her own life to save the man she loves even if he’s done unspeakable things in the past? Can she find her way back to her world, knowing they’ll never see each other again?

Cher Green takes us on one woman’s journey to discovering what’s worth dying for. Escape to Love is about fate, magic, and love, and about running to instead of running from.

At only fifty-eight pages, I could have read on and on and on. Will the author share more stories about Constance Spenser, aspiring witch? I hope so.

--happy reading
