Reviewed by Lee Ashford for Readers' Favorite

“One Day for Me” is a book of short stories by award-winning author Sally Jenkins. With eight short stories, this collection runs the gamut from a very surprising and unexpected murderer, to the stressful disclosure to her sister that a woman’s boyfriend doesn’t really exist. Between those two very different tales are 6 more short stories, each with some kind of unforeseeable twist at the end, serving to make each story that much more entertaining. Although different in content, all of these stories have a couple of things in common: all are very well written, and all are exceptionally entertaining. Sally Jenkins knows how to build a story. She takes the mundane, and makes it intriguing. She hooks the reader, and reels him in. She proves her talent in each of these eight short stories, making this collection one you will be glad you read.

At the start of each story, the author lists the award(s) that particular story has won. When you have finished reading these stories, you will understand why she has won so many awards for her fiction. Sally Jenkins has a fertile imagination, where the seed of an idea develops into a full-blown and consequential tale. It would seem her creativity knows no bounds. This book tenders proof of that conjecture, as the range of topics she explores covers the full spectrum of possible subjects. However, her capacity for twisting each tale’s ending is nothing short of phenomenal. I believe most fiction readers will find her writing to be a source of great joy and fulfillment.
