A Book Review: Wolf Pear

If you get a chance, please go over to Marsha’s blog and check out her review ๐Ÿ˜‰

Marsha Ingrao

You all know that Iโ€™m a Dianne Gray fan, and I just finished reading her 2010 novel Wolf Pear. ย The reader has no idea whether or not the two main protagonists, JD Cusack and Esther Crooke will ever meet. ย Both characters mistreatedย as children, you hope that the something in the story will turn out well for them.

Poor Esther, fat, lonely, and constantly tormented, has worked her way into a very successful business with her best friend, Sandy in spite of having a despicably hateful family. ย JD, with his special talents to see beyond the normal, has become a top federal police officer. ย Both Esther and JDย are haunted by their pasts as well as their present circumstances. ย Neither of them realize the danger that await them.

The novel opens with Esther burying a man that she has killed. ย To hide him, she plants tomatoes on his grave. ย The tomatoesโ€ฆ

    Congratulations, another great review! I’m going to have to work on this review thing, it’s a grand idea and so gratifying to them singing your praises. Alas, I’m a newbie to these intricacies.

      Thank you! I’m not sure how it works either because I rarely review books (I’m not very good at it!) I just read and then say I like it or I don’t. But it’s really nice to know someone has read something you’ve put a lot of time and effort into and then say they like it! Very gratifying indeed ๐Ÿ˜€

    Another great review, Dianne. I’m on a mission to some day acquire either an e-reader, a tablet, or a really big smartphone so I can read your books too!

      Thank you, Janna! This is a wonderful compliment ๐Ÿ˜€ They are available in paperback (but it can get pricey buying them like that because of postage and handling etc) and I like to keep them as low-cost as possible ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Congratulations on so many great reviews! I’ll have to get this so it can smile at me from my Kindle list while reading The Everything Theory, and then I won’t have to be as disappointed when The Everything Theory ends.

      LOL – thank you so much, Shelia! It’s amazing the difference in the feelings we get when we finish writing a book to the feelings we get when we finish reading a book! I really hope you enjoy both stories ๐Ÿ˜€
