It is always a delight to receive a lovely review of one of my books! I was happy to see this one recently for my eclectic short story collection, An Angel Among Us. Thank you to Bette Stevens, a talented author of children’s and adult books, for this wonderful review.
A collection of short stories that covers several genres including romance, grief/loss, mystery, suspense, sci-fi, fantasy and paranormal. This book is dedicated to a courageous friend who passed this year. The first story is specially created for her and is the inspiration for the title of this book.

Gigi Sedlmayer, Book Excellence Award Finalist winning author of the Talon series5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn’t stop reading Reviewed in the United States on March 17, 2017Verified Purchase I downloaded the book just in the morning. I wanted to have a little peak only, but starting to read, guess what?
I couldn’t stop reading. Particular the first story, about Janice friend Anne.
But each story is different, diverse and engaging, and wonderfully told. I laughed, I cried, I smiled.
I have read many books for her already, and was never disappointed.
Janice is really a great story teller. I love her books

Sarah Reviews5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! Reviewed in the United States on March 11, 2017 Author Janice Spina is a prolific and eclectic writer, whose creativity knows no bounds and whose books entertain readers of all age groups. Having had the pleasure of reading many of Author Spina’s earlier works, I looked forward to reading her newest creation and am happy to report that her first-ever short story compilation is ever so gratifying.
“An Angel Among Us” is fabulous. The characters that populate the short stories are from all walks of life, real and well-developed. Their touching stories resonate, as the protagonists confront and face up to life’s many challenges. Loss, regret, love and hope are ingredients you’ll find in abundance in this stirring and heart-string tugging book. Highly recommended!
WickedJ5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Short Story Collection By Janice Spina Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2018 First I have to say how much I loved the author’s choice of many short stories in this book. Each was a page turner and the fact of them being short stories I was able to read several each night. My favorite is “An Angel Among Us”… as the story surrounds my dear friend Anne since 4th grade. As I was reading each page I visualized everything and it brought back memories so special… I totally enjoyed this chapter and all the others… I thank the author, Janice Spina, for being such a wonderful writer and bringing our friend Anne’s heartfelt story to share..and know that Anne’s spirit is still among her family and friends.
