Thanks to San Francisco Book Review for rating The Investment Clubfive out of five stars! “Doug Cooper has created characters that readers can easily relate to, well-grounded, and oh so human. The chapters are short, and they are well-crafted to leave the reader wanting to learn what happens next to the characters. The tension builds as the reader begins to get interested in the group; the reader wants to know for how long the group can stick together before something rips it apart.”
San Francisco Book Review was launched in September 2009 originally as a bi-monthly printed magazine distributed in the SF Bay Area. Now, we focus only on the website, which provides nearly 300 book reviews a month, in addition to author-related articles, interviews, SF Bay Area book store events, and book store/library directories.
Check out Foreword’s review of Outside In. “…what makes Outside In unusual is that its main character isn’t a teenager. He’s not even a college student. Instead, Cooper gives Brad Shepherd a responsible adult’s problems and chronicles his honest, if flawed, attempts to solve them.”
Foreword Reviews is distributed quarterly to 7500 librarians and booksellers and is also available at most Barnes & Noble newsstands and by subscription. Follow them on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
Check out Tiffany’s Bookshelf’s review of Outside In. “This book made me eternally thankful I never got involved in the party scene, but it also helped me understand how young people get sucked into drug and alcohol addictions. Like Brad, we all find ourselves running.”
