A Single Drop Of Perfect Blog Tour - Jessikah Hope Stenson

A Single Drop Of Perfect is a collection of five short stories and I think each one is definitely its own drop of perfect.

This is Jessikah's debut collection of stories but you would never tell with the maturity and quality of her writing. Each story is crafted wonderfully and there is so much detail that you don't feel lacking in anything even though the story is short. Sometimes in collections of stories, there are maybe one or two that you don't feel hold up with the rest, but that is certainly not the case with this collection.

Each story has characters that you can relate to on some level and you can certainly imagine yourself in their places in some of the stories at least. The characters are very human and you feel like you know them as you follow their story.

I think the stand out story for me was Wounds in which an eight year old girl suffers a dog attack, but there is so much more to it than that. As a mum myself I really empathised with Helen the main character and would have probably acted in the exact same way in the same situation. In fact I may not have acted as calmly!

I also really think What Isla Did stood out as well, the story unravels around you and as you're reading you realise more and more about what has happened, It really gets it's hooks into you.

A Single Drop of Perfect is wonderfully written quick read that will surprise you with each story. This is a definite recommendation from me.

I gave this book 5 stars on Goodreads.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the blog tour!

As part of the blog tour I received an e-book copy of A Single Drop of Perfect directly from the author.
