(AN ORIGINAL SINNERS COLLECTION)
by Tiffany Reisz
Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire...
Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns' confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he'd heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: "I met Eleanor."
So begins the 40-page "The Confession of Marcus Stearns," a moving coda to the RITA® Award-winning Original Sinners series. Originally published as a limited-edition paperback for the 2014 RT Booklovers' Convention, and available worldwide for the first time.
This collection also includes "The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber," a companion 36-page story written exclusively for this book.
And, finally, all secrets are revealed in "The Confession of Tiffany Reisz," an exclusive, in-depth interview.

I love it when authors provide you with insight to the characters we love! "The Confessions" is a set of three short stories where we as the reader learn more about Marcus Stearns, Eleanor Schreiber and Tiffany Reisz! Throughout the Original Sinners series, we've met Father Stuart Ballard in spurts and glimpses! I've always wondered how he dealt/managed being friends with Soren and Nora and being in the know of what their world consisted of. I think we have this pre-conceived notion of what a "Priest" is like and how they should "be" which leads to some curiosity as to who is Father Stuart Ballard.
As the blurb says these are short stories or rather confessions and best read after reading the Original Sinners Series. I truly enjoyed reading these confessions and learning more about these fascinated characters.
It was an intriguing read as you were not only getting Nora's and Soren's (via their confession) POV, but you were getting an exclusive, a peak into their most inner emotions and thoughts on top of getting to know this other Priest.... because again, we have all wondered about him at one point or another.
I loved it and highly recommend this read. Tiffany, the author has suggested it be read AFTER all the book in the series have been read due to spoilers. I will admit to only reading the "White Years" of the series and needing to play catch up with the original books. However, I couldn't resist. Really.... the title, the characters... the novels... the author... Granted.. if you never read the series, hold off. It will be worth the wait.
As with everything Tiffany has written that I've read, I loved the writing style and the characters's own unique personalities shine through.
Rating: 4.5 Stars I REALLY LOVED IT
