Cheat sheets is a fantastically well-written set of short stories. The theme of infidelity handled with skill, humour and highly entertaining scenarios. From the absurd to the scarily too believable they are crafted in a way that makes you just want to keep on reading.
The book flows like an open box of luxury chocolates, you keep saying ‘just one more’, before you know it the book is done and your opening it up again to read all over.
Published by Truth Serum Press and written by Edward O’Dwyer I can highly recommend this for anyone who is a fan of short stories. I can recommend it also for anyone who is a fan of infidelity, some great pieces of advice to ensure you don’t wind up in an accidental ménage à trois with your partner and their lover, blinded for having a wandering eye or much, much worse!
The pace of the book is great each story with enough to draw you in and give you what you desire. I’m talking to the fans of short stories now and not the infidelity fans. The needless page after page of ‘set up’ is gone leaving only stories that are full, complete and expertly crafted.
A full five-star review is as much as I can give, but not as much as I felt it deserved. It would be great for a stocking filler… again this is for the literary gift buyer not the Christmas season infidelity enthusiast.
