CARDINAL MEADOWS

The Fixer-Upper from Hell….no, Heaven!

By Fiona Gregory, editor

Dec 29, 2012: Been reading too much depressing, dark, horrific fiction lately? Then you might want to cleanse your palate with this charming, easy read. The first chapter is a little confusing as it starts and ends with events that apparently had several years between them, but the tale quickly hits its stride and keeps the reader clicking to the next chapter to find out what outrageous situation Leonard will encounter next. The writing is not particularly polished but has plenty of energy and humour. The quirky characters are distinct and unpredictable.
