A little post by Rebekah herself; I am very excited to share this post with you. As most of you will be aware, I have published my latest book ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’.

This is my second book and I decided to write a novelette. I love the idea of a short story, the reader can enjoy it in one or two sittings, fitting it in around their hectic lifestyles.

The idea for ‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ came when a close friend of mine was waiting for her partner to propose. I thought about what someone might do in that situation and I think most people would try and gain control, giving rise to the idea for my new book.

This story was an exciting piece for me to write. I took on Lisa’s character with ease as she was fun to write about (I think I could also see some of myself in her). Authors will tell you to write about a topic that you would want to read yourself and this is a book that I would want to snuggle up with. I also love the cover, which I had great fun designing, and I am guilty of choosing a book by its cover, so I hope it will attract you too. My wonderful husband put together the book trailer and I think it is a wonderful teaser of what’s to come.

‘The Bulletproof Proposal’ was published in November 2017, and my hope is that you’ll enjoy reading it as much as I loved writing it. Please leave a review if you liked it, on either Amazon or Goodreads, and tell your friends and family about it, it would be much appreciated.

Book Blurb; After five years of dating Lisa is anticipating that all-important question, will you marry me?

Impatient, Lisa decides to take matters into her own hands and propose to Matt, after all it is the 21st Century. Only she takes it one step further and with the help of her best friend Mandy, she prepares the ultimate proposal.

What she doesn’t know is whether this will be the beginning of her happily-ever- after or the beginning of the end.

My Review; This is the perfect, short story for all chick-lit, romance and drama fans. Perfect for when you’re busy and need a quick read! You can easily devour this story in less than an hour. Lisa is a strong, determined character that will get her own way! Imagine proposing and planning a wedding within 2 weeks. Mental! But will her partner say yes? Lisa is willing to risk it all. I enjoyed reading this one and it even gave me a little chuckle. Perfect.

My Review: 
I am a big fan of short stories!
These five stories are all easy to read and fast paced, in fact I finished them all within an hour and enjoyed each and every one of them. My favourite had to be the first story called Doctors Orders the perfect chick-lit short story. All these stories end on some form of a cliff hanger to let the reader decide the ending of the story for themselves. These are all perfect short stories, especially for those readers who are too busy to read long stories and like to grab a quick story here and there. I understand short stories may not be to all readers tastes but I really enjoyed these stories and would highly recommend to you all. Very refreshing and may help readers out of a book slump! I awarded a well deserved four stars.
