Rating: 5/5

Cover: A

Review: The character development in Tiffany’s Inside Out was well paced and well written. Initially, Detective Michael comes off as a workaholic. And enters, Candy, a.k.a. Venessa; his love. He starts to consider changing the way he lives his life. This decision plagues many individuals in reality. Tiffany did a great job showing his struggle.

Her imagery of the Bay Area and Oakland really makes you feel as though you are in California.

The pace of the novella made me think that I was watching a mystery/thriller movie.

The ending is shocking and suspenseful, yet I WON’T ruin the ending! No spoilers!

The cover is so great! Having a single, hooded man coming at you with a knife??? The cover screams Thriller and Mystery. I am so happy with Tiffany’s choice of cover! Her cover gets an A from me!
