The Grand by Dennis D. Wilson (Book Review #81)

This review is written for Online Book Club “I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.” The story is explained in several perspective angles and then brought together for the final reveal. I found this approach to add more depth and dimension to the story. The Grand begins with Dean Wister, a federal agent that has lost his wife, Sara, through cancer. Before she passes away, she asks Dean if they could go to their favorite place, the meadow, once she []

“I was very pleased when Jeyran agreed to review of my recently published memoir. I feel she has given it a very fair and thoughtful assessment and was particularly sensitive to what I was trying to convey with my stories. She has been a pleasure to work with and is always prompt with replies and guidance. I was happy to join in on her blog pages with a guest article. Altogether a very positive experience.”

Patrick Burns – Author of “Far away and further back”

“I truly appreciate Jeyran’s take on the book. She brought out the most important and vital components of the story, which shows she has a talent for recognizing development and structure. I felt great relief about her positive pass on the YA voice–this concerned me the most. I don’t know how she handles such a mountainous workload of TBR books. We’re lucky to have her in our corner, providing this unselfish service to authors.”
