Manipulated Lies by H. A. Leuschel @haleuschel @rararesources #bookreview #manipulatedlies

TGIF friends!

Summer is coming to an end way too soon, my youngest goes back to school next Thursday! Today I am sharing with you my review for one of the short stories in this book filled with thrilling and intriguing short stories. Thanks Rachel for my invitation to this tour!🖤

Manipulated Lives

Five compelling true-to-life stories each highlighting a narcissist’s manipulative mind games

Narcissists are everywhere.

They can be witty, charming and highly charismatic.

Anyone can be their target.

At first their devious, calculating mind games can be hard to spot because they are masters of disguise, but then they revert to their true self of being controlling and angry in private. Their main aim: to dominate and use others to satisfy their needs, with a complete lack of compassion and empathy for their victim.

All stories highlight to what extent narcissistic abuse can distort lives and threaten our self-worth yet ultimately, also send a positive message that once the narcissist is unmasked, the victims can at last break free.

My Thoughts

Tess and Tatoos:

This was a short story That packed a big punch…. The characters were very well-developed especially given that it was only 53 pages…. an entertaining read that I actually read twice, because I wanted to go back and see if I had missed anything….

Tess is elderly and living in a home for the elderly when she meets Sharon a caretaker who she befriends….. The relationship between these ladies was lovely….. they both played such an important part in each others life, giving them each something they needed at that time in their lives….

Tess has a story that needs to be told…. something her son needs to know before she passes away… there are some twists, some secrets are revealed, and of course there is a tattoo….

Absolutely recommend this book to anybody that wants a quick entertaining enjoyable read and bonus it is free on Kindle….
