Review- For all Eternity (And Not a Single Day Less)

Cover for 'For all Eternity (And not a Single Day Less)'
 Available at Smashwords

Review- For all Eternity (And Not a Single Day Less) by Philip Catshill
The book, a novella, begins by introducing us to John Collet and Mike George Newman. The two are like chalk and cheese but have been friends since childhood. John is not monogamous even though he marries a sweet ethereal woman. They are both police officers. Mike is a dedicated officer and loyal husband, caring about the people in his city. Sandra Taylor meets him  and falls in love with him but he is married. The book is a look into the life of Mike the police officer and the start of his career and possible road to happiness. I would have liked to have seen more of Sandra and Mike but this story is very captivating. I look forward to reading more of this character.
