Review: Contingency Plan – Anita Ensal

Series: The Neighborhood #1
Genre: Contemporary fairytale
Pages: 29
Published: Dec 2011
Publisher: Musa Publishing
Source: For review

Sharon’s running out of time and money. She’s got a plan for how to save herself and her two children after their deadbeat dad and the rest of their family have deserted them. But what will her contingency plan do to her soul and the souls of her children?

Mr. Mann carries burdens most couldn’t — the visible, odd arrangement of connected boxes on his back, and the hidden guilt for deeds done long, long ago. The end may be in sight, but not a happy one if Sharon chooses the wrong path. Someone’s contingency plan will be put into effect, but whether it leads to a happily ever after or dark despair will require intricate maneuverings by the white witches of the Neighborhood. But even they can’t stop a good woman from going wrong.
My thoughts:
I meant to review another book today, but I got a few pages left, and well then it was perfect to take on this short story. And who can say no to a Gini Koch book in the first place, since that is her hiding behind that name.
This was a short tale about Sharon who is down on her luck, she got nothing except for her kids. But the is kind, and she tries. They meet the strange Mr Mann and their luck is beginning to change. But the question is, will she pick the right way or will things to dark again? And that is what it is about. 
There is also a bit of romance at the end, because every fairytale needs a HEA.
I do not want to say too much since it is short and I would just spoil it all, but it was a nice little tale. Even when there are struggles, there might be something good lurking behind the horizon.

    You are not telling anything at all! Difficult to know if I would like it or not. Soon I will be starting the Gini Koch books. And I know she uses a lot of pennames, 6 or so regularly.

    I'm with Staci – never heard of the author. Glad it did have a hea though. There's enough depressing stuff in real life. It's nice to escape to something else. Glad you enjoyed it!

    AurianI fear if I say a single thing it will just spoil the entire story. And I can't really say whether you would like it or not. Cos if I tell more, then you will already feel liek you have read it.KayeTrue, too many depressing things in life as it is :/ But sometimes there is escapeMisieAye, she has a few of them 😉
