More About This Title Dear Abby


“Dear Abby” the letters begin, and Abigail has to answer each and every one with hokey travel advice that promotes her company’s package tours. Sure, she gets to experience a dozen all-inclusive resorts every year, but there’s only so much pina coladas and pool-side hamburgers a girl can stand.

So when a beautiful woman begins to pay Abby more than the standard amount of attention, Abby takes notice. After all, a nice vacation affair is just what she might need to liven up her trip. But then things start to get weird. A creepy black mark has appeared on Abby’s palm, Abby’s new lover is growing unusually possessive, and Abby… Abby can’t seem to be able to have sex enough.

And it is great sex. But it’s also just so weird. And sort of unearthly.

Abby’s lover is named after a goddess, but she couldn’t really be one… could she?

Peggy writes stories for the thinking erotica reader.

Enjoyable, well-written, and sexy! June 27, 2014

This was a great read! I have read a lot of erotica and, especially, fantasy and supernatural erotica - this is one of the best of them. The main character, Abby, feels more like a real person than many similar stories I've read, and the supernatural element sneaks in quicker than you realize, which makes for a good surprise the first time you read and a delightful little tickle of 'oh, look, I didn't notice that before!' on subsequent reading.

I have to say one of the main factors leading to my enjoying this story so very much is that, when things go more and more beyond 'normal', Abby has a normal, human reaction, but then she gets over it and goes on in a way that felt true to how her character had been portrayed.

Also, and this is a big factor, too, the supernatural beings were a bit scary, and certainly not just like humans in their actions/reactions, but they weren't cliché. To me, none of this felt cliché, which was so refreshing!

Peggy Barnett made excellent plot choices and the erotic scenes were well done and very enjoyable. This one's well worth the cost.

Dear Abby was smart, sexy, and totally worth the read! There's some great writing here: Barnett strikes a really nice balance between praise-worthy character work, and equally proficient delivery of, well... "the goods." The story just gets hotter with every page, mounting to a spectacular finish. Awesome stuff!

I was intrigued by the description, so I thought I would give Dear Abby a try. I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. The premise is clever, and it has storytelling to match. After just reading a book by an author who used words she didn't understand in places they shouldn't have been, it was a pleasure to read this well-written prose.

I highly recommend Dear Abby for a fun read that will give your libido a ride while making your brain feel like it wasn't neglected during the process.
