Quick Coffee Break Reads. 3 Short Stories by Susan Willis.

After a busy time doing whatever you do, isn’t it nice just to sit with the beverage of your choice and relax into a book. Well these short stories by Author Susan Willis are the perfect coffee break read. They are each ten minute reads to give you that quick bookish escapism time between the busy hours of your day.

I was lucky enough to see these 3 books on Amazon available to download for free. At the time of writing this, they are 0.99p each.

Paul’s Romantic Picnic.

Paul has been given another chance to impress his ex-wife and launches himself into organising a romantic picnic in the countryside. Along with folding chairs and a picnic rug, he has brought wonderful food and a bottle of her favourite wine. But funnily enough his ulterior motives don’t quite go according to plan…

Meet Me At The Eiffel Tower.


Angela is worried that her and hubby, Peter are growing apart. Since Christmas they haven’t spent any time together and she arranges a holiday to Paris. It’ll either make us or break us, as the saying goes. When they were giddy twenty-three-year olds they’d had their first weekend away together in Paris, and she hopes to rekindle their loving relationship with a little Parisian magic. But will Peter actually turn up?

Chocolate Cake for a Wedding.

Hollie makes wedding cakes and meets Andrew in the park looking distraught. His fiancee is being a tyrant and insists upon having a traditional fruit cake. He hates fruit cake and when he looks though her portfolio of wedding cakes, she realises he is a chocolate cake fiend. She also realises that he has the best smile ever…

My Thoughts:

These three reads were perfect little mini book breaks for me. At different points in my days, I sat and read each one. They are easy reads with quick plots and believable characters.

My favourite of the three was Meet Me At The Eiffel Tower. It was cute, believable and had a satisfying ending.

The writing on all three books flowed well and took me completely into the stories for the short time I was invested in them.

Having read the Author’s work on these short stories, I am in no doubt that I would enjoy her longer novels.

Fancy a quick read, I highly recommend these little reads.

    Short stories are not my usual go-to when it comes to reading (I only read ones by beloved authors of mine) but I agree with you, they are perfect for short escapism.
    I am glad you enjoyed them and I am also glad that the author left you a nice comment. It shows she appreciate your time and effort.

      Thanks Irena. I am always happy when the authors comment and appreciate my reviews. 😁. I don’t read many short stories but occasionally I do enjoy them. I used to read the short stories from magazines now I have kindle reads. 😉
