As best friends, Xavier and Jupiter have always been supportive of each others’ romantic relationships. But when Jupiter meets Bob online, Xavier can’t help but feel he needs to come to her rescue. There’s just something about Bob.

In the process of preventing Bob from wooing Jupiter away, Xavier realizes he’s been in love with her all along. Can he keep her safe and win her heart? And will he ever get to read her manuscript?Join Xavier, Jupiter, and a quirky cast of characters in this fun romantic comedy novelette with a twist you won’t see coming.

Some of the early reviews

I came into this book not quite knowing what to expect. I knew it would involve “mushy stuff,” and that it was liable to be more lighthearted than my usual fare, but beyond that I didn’t have much to go on.Let me say that I am glad I took the trip. Sometimes whim and chance lead us to things that we would not otherwise have come across, and in those moments we should be thankful.The technical portion of the program is well done, and while in the first few chapters you might be prone to thinking it childish or a little over-the-top, it becomes clearer towards the end and you start to see how it all fits together. The final whammy – and the opportunity to read the central story that forms the third layer of the work – cap things off nicely and offer an explanation for the apparent oddity of certain turns of phrase elsewhere.It’s not your standard romance, and gives this particular book-lover and writer a warm fuzzy feeling that there may yet be hope after all. If you’re even slightly on the fence about it, take the plunge. You’ll enjoy it.

Linda G. Hill’s All Good Stories is a light-hearted story. It is fast-paced, quickly moving the reader from scene to scene with each new chapter. For a quick read, the characters are well-developed, well-described and unique. Linda tells a story within a story within a story. When you read it, you will know what I mean (and you definitely want to read it!)

The two main characters, Xavier and Jupiter are long-time friends. Xavier runs a book store and Jupiter is a writer and works in a gym as a receptionist (near the end of the novella). The other characters are Bob the Blogger, Gloria the waitress, and Harry the Horrible. Xavier and Jupiter’s lives are intermingled with the other three characters in what turns out to be a hilarious, off-the-cuff near-disatrous story-line. The twists in this story keep you reading and the strange last few parts of the story will leave you in awe of Linda’s talent as a yarn-spinner.

You won’t find any spoilers here. You must read this one for yourself. It is a delightful, hysterical tale that can be read within an hour or two. Well worth the time!

Fun Frolic By Trent P. McDonald on October 26, 2016

“All Good Stories” was a light-hearted, fun tale written with a bit of humor. Some of the other reviews give you a pretty good idea of the story without giving to much away, so I’ll just add that this short book was an enjoyable read. Anyway, in the words of “Bob”, it was a fabulously fun frolic, full of frothy adventure and fantastic fantasy and… uhm, yeah, sorry, I forgot that “Bob” isn’t the greatest of poets 😉
