*Review* Connelly's Horde by D.M. Earl

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: July 1, 2014
Pages: 82


Welcome to Desmond Connelly's Horde or better known as his extended family at Wheels & Hogs Garage. For years these survivors have been dealing with what life throws them while trying to move forward from the atrocities in their lives. Some have secrets not shared while others are working through problems that are continually present in their lives. 

Follow Des as he introduces you to each one of his crew at Wheels & Hogs in this short Novella. Start to understand how a group of strangers become not only friends but family over the years. Get a snapshot of why when life pushes you down, in this garage, you push back until you are on your feet again.


I was hired to provide post publication proofreading for this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the story makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This book didn't feel much like a story to me. It was more like a get to know the characters prequel novella. It did do an amazing job of delving into the characters and showing us their backgrounds, which is something I appreciated reading having previously  read Holiday's with the Horde. While there is a conflict, it's not really resolved, or even really approached, but this does lead up to the approach to the conflict (if that makes any sense.) 

So if you want a book with action, or suspense, or anything like that, this will probably not satisfy your desires. However, if you'd like to sit down to a leisurely dinner to get to know a group of character, this will absolutely hit the spot.

Overall, I give Connelly's Horde 4 out of 5 stars. - Katie
