BOOK REVIEW OF JUMPING THE FUNNY BONES.  This review is also posted on writingonthego.blogspot.com and Midnight ShowcaseBook Reviews at Facebook.com
Thank you to the person who wrote this, I appreciate it.

 
I just finished reading Jumping the Funny Bones Digest by Midnight Showcase
which included authors K.C Foster, Megan Hussey, Linda White-Francis and Barbara
Donlon Bradley. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed all fours stories in this
book. Barbara started off the book by making me laugh with her story Picture
Perfect. I envied her character Susan for being able to create the perfect man
and he pleases her with every command. The author adds those little details that
pull the story together, like Susan's mother always popping out of the picture
frame. As a child one of my favorite TV shows was Bewitched and this story
reminded of those times, I found comfort and joy reading this one.
The next story is Brooklyn's T-Bird Man by Linda White-Francis. This was a cute
romance that made you realize how everything does happen for a reason. Brooklyn
thought she would never feel love again and along comes her T-Bird man. Little
did she know that somehow her dead husband had a hand in them meeting. This
story will leave you feeling that even in the worst of times, great things can
come out of it.
The Third story is Prince of Wood by Megan Hussey. After reading this story I
was wishing I could have a visit from Thornton, the time-traveling mannequin.
This story is funny and sexual at the same time. I loved the scene in the book
where Gierra is in the kitchen singing into a ladle spoon, "Horny, Horny,
Horny." The characters in this story came alive for me.
The last story is K.C Foster's Fill Your Prescription: An Adventure of Billy
Boner. When I saw the character's name was Billy Boner, I knew it was going to
be a fun ride and believe me it was. The main thing I can say about this story
is if your sex drive is in Neutral, read about Billy Boner and Mrs. Chambers and
that will get you back in drive. I was sad when this story ended. I wanted to
read more about Billy Boner and his adventures.
Overall you can't go wrong with this book. If you are looking for a weekend read while laying out in the garden swing or taking that long bubble bath, Jumping the Funny Bones is the book to take along.

Linda,
  I just finished your story and enjoyed every line; what a beautiful romance.  I was cheering for the couple every step of the way, and felt genuine concern when they were in danger on the boat. I also enjoyed Teri's rapport with her friend during their shopping trip. The wedding was beautiful and the ending just perfect; such a great read!

What a joy to read!  Congratulations on another romance story that keeps it real, and keeps it loving. Once again Linda White-Francis escorts her readers down memory lane with a romantic ride where ethics and morals entwine with genuine love-making that forever arouses the soul.  This is a wonderfully engaging story that moves at a luxurious pace; each thought captivating another truism, underscoring the authentic side of emotional romance and that insatiable longing that lasts a lifetime.  As always, White-Francis finds her way through those secret corridors of love in a voice and rhythm that invites us to belong.  Definitely, a must read!   Julia Carlson, Tucson, AZ.
