Dawn reviews Michael P. Thomas’s Say Cheese, which is a short story released on 5th February 2015 by Wayward Ink Publishing.
This was originally part of the Standed Anthology.
Grover Shepherd is the only thing Felix Medrano loves more than being the current darling of Hollywood.
He throws a star-studded surprise engagement party to declare that love to the world, and
it’s a smash, save for one detail: Shep is a no-show. Felix knows Shep missed his flight home from New
Orleans, but that was fifteen hours ago. What’s the hold up?
I have to admit, I had already read this book, as part of the Stranded Anthology, but jumped at the chance to read it again as a standalone.
We meet the unlikely duo of Felix and Grover who is known as Shep. Felix is a well-known actor , loved by both ladies and men. Shep was the total opposite, who worked in a bar called Clarion, which is where they met.
Felix has planned a party, at which he decides he will ask Shep to marry him, but Shep is stuck in another state. Shep has no idea of what Felix has planned, as he frantically tries to get back home, it is like everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. You cannot help but laugh at all the things that do go wrong for him.
While Shep is trying to get home, Felix is sending pictures to him, who remembers all the details of every single picture – and you learn a lot about their life together….. from how they met, their first night together and Sheps true inner deep feelings.
Does Shep ever make it back to the party?? Does Felix get the chance to ask Shep to marry him?? Does Shep say “Yes” ??
All these questions will be answered in the book…… you will just have to buy it and see.
