Susan Wells Bennett Will Review Susanne O'Leary

Susan Wells Bennett is the author of three novels and reviews Indie books at her website. I am very happy to have her guest review of a novel she picked, from Irish-Swedish author Susanne O'Leary. Swedish For Beginners is Susanne's new novel after Fresh Powder and Finding Margo.

Susan Bennett's work should be noted here. Her three novels are available at and Here are descriptions and reviews:

The Thief of Todays and Tomorrows
After a whirlwind wartime romance and marriage, Francis and Katie DeLucia are sure that their future will be perfect. When Francis returns home at the end of WWII though, he encounters a job and housing market crowded with other returning veterans. Desperate to support his growing family, Francis accepts a job from a suspected Mob boss.
"This is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time, and I found it at Smashwords. I would recommend it to anyone. A really good and easy read..." --Smashwords reader review

Mac turned his life upside down for his wife, leaving behind a promising career to pursue her dream of long-haul trucking. When she leaves him for another man, he has to figure out who he is without her. Along the way, he befriends a gay trucking couple, a lot lizard, a science-fiction writer, and a pharmaceutical rep, among others. This novel will have you laughing out loud as Mac moves from one mishap to the next.

"The story is told from the point of view of a young, male truck driver, so I wondered if I (a middle aged woman who's never done anything like drive a truck) would be able to relate to anything about the central character. However Mac is such a likable person, I totally enjoy reading the story of how he finds what he wants from life after his wife leaves him at the very beginning of the story. A quick, charming read." -- Amazon reader review

Lazarus Dale can teach you how to reach your full potential through his Learning to Listen Well seminars. You, too, can have a beautiful wife, a successful career, a stylish mansion -- all you have to do is follow his instructions for a perfect life.

"The books characters run the gambit from innocent believers, like Ava and Zoe to the truly dangerous like Richard. All in all, an easy read and entertaining. I would recommend." -- Smashwords reader review

Susanne O'Leary has a terrific bio at her website, which I link here, since I don't have the Q&A done, and the lady certainly seems to have a loyal following. Tomorrow, Susan reviews Susanne.
