Citizens Journal Columnist Raven West to Sign her Novels at Fundraising Event

Author and Citizens Journal Columnist “Heard It On the Grapevine” author Raven West will be signing her novel “First Class Male” at the Citizens Journal wine tasting fundraiser Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 1:30 to 5 pm at Eden Gardens  3900 Brennan Rd in Moorpark.

“Content with his life as a small town, Postmaster Alex Bentley never intended to become a hero, much less a media sensation, but fate had different plans. From deep within the splendor of the Catskill Mountains, to the majestic skyline of Manhattan, First Class Male delivers an intricate tale of a small town postmaster who triumphs over a ruthless District Attorney, a mysterious adversary, an unsympathetic public and finally his own heart.”

***** I have to warn you about this book.  Once you pick it up a start reading it is almost impossible to put down and it will keep you up reading way past your bedtime.  I have to use the classic phrase: it is a page turner.  The plot and characters are very unique in many ways and very comfortable in others.  I won’t spoil it for you so I will not talk about the story which features two very unlikely romantic lead characters.  One is a retired lawyer from the NY City DA’s office want-to-be author and the other a rural postmaster living the life he totally loves.

Raven West has the amazing ability to create love stories that involve conflict, mystery and suspense.  She brings her characters to life and they are very much alive.  The relationships are always very romantic but remain on the excellent side of good taste.  The geographic locations and scenes come to life as the action unfolds and provide a vivid stage for the story to unfold.  There is suspense and drama set in New York City and up-state New York small towns.  – Reviewed by CITIZENS JOURNAL

West will also be signing her other novels; “Red Wine for Breakfast” and “Undercover Reunion”
