Fractured Volume One
Some too close to home.
“I mean I’m not a troll but I certainly wasn’t head cheerleader material.”
“Chrissy has curly blonde hair and is pregnant, like she is about to lay down and push it out pregnant.”
“He slowly backs away from me like I’m a rabid animal and I hear the TV turn on once more.”
This novella reads like a personal diary or a letter from a friend. It is written in a casual and relaxed manner in common vernacular, and without pretense. I found it refreshing and a bit perplexing. Refreshing – because I am enjoying the story, realism, and honesty of the young bride who is struggling with stressful and unexpected events. Perplexing – as a reviewer, I am undecided on how to rate the caliber and quality of the writing. I have decided to go with a compromise and met in the middle. Of great importance to an old cougar and smut monger like me, Ms. Noelle does a good job with the sensual scenes – nice and steamy! I am also enjoying the humor, banter, bold honesty, and the confessional vibe as she works through her observations, concerns, inner musings and feelings. She has quite a bit going on in her head and has silently nicknamed the other military wives as the “military mafia” and is personally annoyed and frustrated with their “wife code,” which appears to be an old-fashioned 1950s notion of how “good wives” should act. While it seems outdated and antiquated in comparison to our current society at large, I am aware that this snobbery and stuffiness is still the common expectation of many a military social set.
I live in Philadelphia Pennsylvania with my husband, and three kids. On top of starting a writing career I am a full time student, and a full time mom. I love spending time with my kids, although I have to hide the computer from them when I am writing! I love being active and being able to do any activity outdoors.
I have always thought as an author the most important critic is your reader, so I would love to hear from you. If you read the book and loved it or hated it, tell me. As long as it is in a constructive way I will always answer and interact with you. I want fans to feel free to tell me what they want for the characters in the story and what they want to see happen.
