Retro-fitted #bookreview for Lunch Hour, a Flash Fiction Collection by Calum Kerr @calumkerr #flashfiction

It was meant to be a podcast post today but I have simply run out of time so there’s this instead:

When I started this writing caper I decided to review everything I read. I posted those reviews to Amazon in the UK and US (you could in those days without having to spend $50 with them first! #JustSaying!) and Goodreads. It didn’t cross my mind to post them on my blog… duh! As I’m aiming to stick to a blogging schedule – oh, how we laughed! – and as I read desperately slowly I shall add in these retro-fitted book reviews when I don’t have a current one to post.

It’s difficult to stop reading a book made up of such short stories as you get drawn along wanting to get on with the next one, so I didn’t really, pretty much finishing it in one sitting! I didn’t realise at first that these stories were linked but as the stories flowed, each one complete in itself, the underlying storyline developed showing a picture of an office at lunchtime and its occupants. People’s lives are always interesting yet so often we don’t know much about those who work next to us and this collection of flash fiction covers a wide range of the office workers and their thoughts and feelings. A delightful collection of very well written short stories, there is something here for everyone and I highly recommend this excellent read.

About Georgia Rose

Georgia Rose is a writer and the author of the romantic and suspenseful Grayson Trilogy books: A Single Step, Before the Dawn and Thicker than Water. A short story, The Joker, based on a favourite character from the series followed and is free to download from Amazon. Her fourth novel, Parallel Lies, a standalone, encompasses crime along with Georgia’s usual blending of genre. Following a long stint working in the law Georgia set up her own business providing administration services for other companies which she does to this day managing to entwine that work along with her writing. Georgia’s background in countryside living, riding, instructing and working with horses has provided the knowledge needed for some of her storylines; the others are a product of her passion for people watching and her overactive imagination! Her busy life is set in a tranquil part of rural Cambridgeshire in the UK where she lives with her much neglected husband and dog. Their son, currently at university, comes and goes and their daughter, having delighted them all for long enough, has eventually moved out, got married, and is discovering the joys of being all grown up and having a mortgage.

    Best laid plans and all that… If I have learned one thing about this blogging lark, is that you can never manage to make plans and stick to them. ‘The best you can’ is the only thing you can hope to aim for…
