A Fragile Will
By Glen Ebisch
Genre: Women’s Fiction
Publisher: Red Adept Publishing
When high school English teacher Cassandra Reilly is laid off, she takes a poorly paying part-time job at a local nursing home to make ends meet. Her employment problems may be solved when one of her patients passes away after naming her in his will as the director of a new literary research center. But Cassie isn’t certain she can handle the position, and her doubts increase when she receives a threat against her life.
The lawyer who handles the will proves to be a source of support and comfort, and Cassie hopes their friendship will deepen into love. As the danger increases and Cassie faces her doubts about her own abilities, she begins to develop a new strength of character that will help her achieve her life’s goals.
This story started off slow but it was interesting enough to keep the pages turning. I remember when I reached that point in a story you love the point of what is going to happen next I have to know. That point was the end of chapter 8 it was a holy moly moment and an attention grabber. I enjoyed this story quite a lot and will gladly read future offerings from this author.
