Book Description

Ms. Shepherd's romantic escape comes complete with humor, romance, and even a little mystery to solve. Love Under the Bubble Wrap - a Novelette begins with the arrival of a mysterious gift. With a pressure-filled life, a recently disabled husband, and the shine dulled on her fifteen-year marriage, the package arrives just in time to provide a pleasing distraction from Debi's problems.

Anyone in a relationship who has ever hit upon one of life's snags will relate to Debi and will laugh at the lengths she goes to solve her personal mystery.  The female leading lady isn't your typical twenty-something drop-dead gorgeous reedy willow. No, this is a story about a marriage in trouble and real life issues to which many readers will relate.

For less than the cost of a fancy coffee, Love Under the Bubble Wrap is the perfect length to read on your lunch break - or anytime!


Editorial Reviews

Review

  • Love Under the Bubble Wrap - a novelette is a sweet escape for anyone wanting to discover love in everyday life. A charming, witty, engaging short story. - Mary DeMuth, author of The Muir House (Zondervan).
  • With a story aimed to encourage marrieds (not just singles), Donna Shepherd's characters are as familiar as a best friend and yet this tale is as fresh as an unopened present. Realistic and humorous--can't wait to see more from Ms. Shepherd! - Linore Rose Burkard, author of Before the Season Ends (Harvest House Publishers).
  • If you're looking for a cute, clean love story to snuggle up with, this is it! - Jill Hart, Founder, Christian Work at Home Moms, author of So You Want to Be a Work-At-Home Mom (Beacon Hill Press).
  • Donna J. Shepherd gives us a "real life" love story! Though short, this novelette provides a fleshed out story with curious characters and a satisfying ending. - Books...Looks and Takes by Eleanor Anders

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in one night! February 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Donna Shepherd's kids books, so when I found out she had written a novella I couldn't wait to check it out! I sat down to read this last night and read it straight through in one evening. I laughed, I sniffled, I got mad at the husband in the story and wanted to thump him upside the head. But, Donna brought it all to a satisfying conclusion that had me sighing in satisfaction. If you're looking for a cute, clean love story to snuggle up with, this is it!

Quick read with a lot of fun and some real emotions. It did not surprise me to see a story with fun and humor sewn into it, but I was surprised by some of the raw emotions revealed in how the main character deals with her husband's recent disabilities. Those parts made me cry, and I loved watching the character learn about herself and her husband as the story progressed.

In brief, the story follows the main character from the moment she receives a mystery gift to the moment she discovers who sent it. With the help of her best friend, main character Debi seeks answers in current strangers and past acquaintances as she tries to solve the mystery of her secret admirer. Not that she's miserable with her not-so-secret love in the form of her husband, but the teenager within certainly likes the idea that someone's love for her flickers beyond the bounds of common, everyday marital love. Even with no intention to act on it, the desire to know who loves her this way spurs her to continue looking into a variety of possible suitors.

In addition to the mystery gift, Debi is busy solving the mystery at home as to why her husband has changed so much since his back surgery. She also spends time examining her own motives and feelings to discover some she's not too comfortable with. At the same time, she even spends a little time playing matchmaker for her best friend.

I will say, the ending gave me a happy surprise, and I hope Donna can put together some more short length "hen lit" stories like this. I like something I can enjoy and read within a few days, even if it takes me a few months to open the cover initially.

Love Under the Bubble Wrap is a delightful mystery. The arrival of a mysterious gift and the reaction of her disabled husband make for a suspenseful story. This troubled marriage gets a spark and a reader can relate to the life issues they are going through. The emotions, words, and actions of the characters make you feel like you are part of the mystery. I loved it. There was so much in this delightful package. You won't be disappointed.
