Review: The Fragile Will by Glen Ebisch


When high school English teacher Cassandra Reilly is laid off, she takes a poorly paying part-time job at a local nursing home to make ends meet. Her employment problems may be solved when one of her patients passes away after naming her in his will as the director of a new literary research center. But Cassie isn’t certain she can handle the position, and her doubts increase when she receives a threat against her life.

The lawyer who handles the will proves to be a source of support and comfort, and Cassie hopes their friendship will deepen into love. As the danger increases and Cassie faces her doubts about her own abilities, she begins to develop a new strength of character that will help her achieve her life’s goals


I’ve not come across this author before but in my usual judge a book by it’s cover mentality drew me in to pick this one up.

Unfortunately this time my hunch let me down…I didn’t find this book strong in its story line or edgy enough.

It was nicely paced but quite easy to see where it was leading which is such a shame as it doesn’t give me the urge to carry on reading.

However, at only 170 pages long it’s a nice easy read that would make that morning commute a touch less monotonous on the train without having to worry about it really taxing you before you’ve finished your morning coffee
