Summary (From Goodreads): A follow up to Twisty Ends and Tangly Tales 1, here is a further selection of short stories by author Susan Brewer. Originally, the majority of these were published in various women’s magazines. Humorous, romantic, nostalgic or even a bit zany, these stories are the perfect length to read while you have your cup of tea or coffee. And maybe a biscuit as well!
Opening Line (of the first Short Story ‘A Surprise Proposal’):
When Adam proposed, Sue was surprised – and delighted.
My Review: Twisty Ends and Tangly Tales 2 is a good fun read perfect for either dipping into between chores or reading cover to cover on a train (which is what I did). The stories are charming and made me smile and even giggle out loud at the antics of characters and the surprise twists in the tales hinted at in the title.
Not a series in any way but a collection of entirely unrelated stories, there is something for everyone but there is an over-running sense of warmth running through the stories – they tug at the warm fluffy places inside you and bring out smiles at happy memories and situations similar to ones we have all experienced. Moments where you have heard something the wrong way or a child has said something that has baffled you or made you giggle at an inappropriate time and, of course, that time where you flashed your most beautiful smile at the hot bloke on the street only to later realise your eyeliner was smudges and you had your jumper on inside out. We’ve all been there and Twisty Ends plays on this to make you laugh.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the collection and though I can’t say as any of the stories will stay with me forever, they were a fantastic way to pass my train journey home from London on a sunny afternoon and earned me a fair few funny looks as I giggled away to myself in the corner.
My Rating: 4/5*
