5.0 out of 5 stars Something’s Amiss April 13, 2014
In Something’s Amiss, a love story unfolds after the passing of a mutual friend. Ms. Hosby follows the protagonist, Poe, throughout. There is a steamy sex scene near the beginning which has that certain DRiP quality (Don’t Read in Public), and it indicates the author could easily have a career in erotica if she chooses to pursue that style of writing. Afterwards, the couple considers their past together and their possible future, the elements of their current lives that keep them apart, and they long for each other. Characters and family members are developed around them, all leading to the funeral of their friend.
This novella has elements of romance and erotica, drama and women’s fiction, but it does not fall squarely into any one genre. It’s a departure from the horror/thriller of One by One, the author’s first book, and it shows her versatility in writing. With an author like this, you just never know what you’re going to get next!
This was an interesting book. A quick and entertaining read. The author does a great job of developing characters. Excellent!
