Dreaded Dinner Party Prologue
Aucuria “Curi” Andrews is a homeschooled girl who’s tired of her dinner party-throwing parents. Nothing is set to change this latest party until a sabotage attempt and her parents’ reputation is challenged by a cartoonish nasty couple. It’s up to Curi to put a stop to the slander, meet some new faces along the way, such as the mischievous traveler Mister Wolfeman or ambitious Ophelia, and of course, eat some delicious food.
The stories in the books are super short! It didn’t take me up to thirty minutes to finish it, so if you’re looking for a short and quick one this book is good for you, but the length of the stories are too short and end too abruptly to really have any significant meaning to the occurrences, they just read like random things that happen, which is why I’m rating this book a 2.5 stars the .5 stars because of the cover art.
The writing is average and didn’t really captivate or hold my attention, even though the stories brought about a lot of questions about the characters I would never know now.
I enjoyed reading Pink is a Distraction which is Keva’s story and I loathe how it ended, and the next story I enjoyed was Waiting for the Bus.
I hope in future some of these stories develop into novellas or novels. Thank you for reading my review.
