CORLISS by Heather Haven



Heather Haven is the multi-published author of the ground breaking

Alvarez Mystery Series, but here she shows us another facet of her diamond-like writing skills.










CORLISS

She begins this story by taking us for a long...well, sorta long...trip back into the allegedly more simplistic (haha) times of yesteryear.

Corliss lives with her grandmother in the small country town of Ash Flats, Arkansas. She meets her mother for the first time in 1959 at the age of fifteen when she's on the cusp between adolescence and adulthood. Not exactly an experience to pin your future hopes on.

Life in a small town in America...as anyone who's ever lived in one can tell you...beneath the seemingly staid surface, raw, dangerous, intense emotions percolate.

Corliss is PACKED with raw, dangerous, intense emotions percolating at their scary best.

I love Heather Haven's Alvarez Mystery Series, and now that I've read Corliss, I am equally in love with her historical trips and highly appropriate salutes to the realities of CAUSE AND EFFECT.

So it is an honor to award Corliss...FIVE STARS.

I received an e-mail confirming Kay Dee Royal left a comment but for reasons I am still trying to figure out, it didn't comethrough. However, I am copying it and pasting it so you all can see what the most delightful Kay Dee had to say about Heather's Corliss posting here:

Heather, Love,

Coming to Muse and finding the warmth of our publishing family after the years Kat and I spent looking over our shoulders when we dared come out of our cave, has brought us more joy than we could have ever anticipated. Your writing skills is icing on an already delicious cake.
