"After reading "The Gift," the first story in this collection, I knew I was in for a wild ride. These stories are, as advertised, quirky. But there's real depth here too — in the characters, the relationships, the insights into the human condition. Great storytelling. "Out of Luck" is a tale as sad and sweet as any you'll read all year. Ms. Belle's writing is very accessible — breezy and gritty with generous helpings of warmth and humor. I very much look forward to reading more of her work." -Don Tassone, author Francesca, Drive and 5 short story collections

“There are stories inside of all of us. Good ones, too. Just hidden there like fancy feathers, waiting to be plucked.” These lines from her story, As Long as You’re Here, are exactly what Libby Belle has done! She has masterfully plucked personal and borrowed life-experiences to give us original, juicy, quirky, humorous and vastly delightful and entertaining tales. You’re going to love her characters, her stories, her artful way with words and Libby herself.

These stories are not just funny, but happy and sad and poignant, too - filled with emotion. Ms.Belle is an outstanding chronicler of relationships - good relationships, oddball relationships, failing relationships. I just wanted to keep reading one story after the next. - Amazon Review
