review and tour: stray affections by charlene baumbich

Stray Affections is a bit bittersweet and a bit predictable. The initial setup is interesting enough with a mysterious snow globe setting the plot in motion. But while the snow globe is the catalyst, it never gets explained. At various times Cassandra and Ken separately attempt to research the globe's insignia, but they drop it when the information isn't easily found. Instead they go about some predictable scenes with some not so great dialogue. It was easy to see only a few chapters in that the Kamrowski-Higgins family would get a happy ending all the do-gooders in town would aid those in need.
2/5
There's a giveaway as part of this tour. Check it out. There's also a video from Charlene Baumbich to introduce the book.
