Product description

About the Author

Kim wrote her first critically acclaimed (if you call her fourth grade teacher a critic, and she does) short story when she was 9 years old. It was about Christmas in a Cave, and it featured such topical, ground-breaking subjects as homelessness & cave dwelling. She's been writing ever since. The state of publication depends on who you ask. She has a Ph.D. in Literature, with specialties in American Lit, Women Writers, Feminism, Sci-Fi/Fantasy & Film Studies but please don't hold any of that against her. She teaches academic writing and how to read literature at a university in her hometown and tries to convince college students that it really is cool to like poetry. She lives in the South, has twin children (one girl, one boy) and a husband who is the model for all her best romantic heroes. She also has two cats-- one black and sassy, one stripey and fat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A spellbinding story of life and love after death 27 May 2015
By LTS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
What could be more shocking than being murdered on the eve of a life-changing proposal? Realizing that instead of dying, you’ve become a ghost caught between life and death. This is precisely the situation Meg finds herself in when she and her fiance are attacked on the streets of San Antonio. Rather than simply passing onto the next plane, Meg finds herself the focus of an epic supernatural struggle featuring—among other things—a colorful cast of wayward spirits, spectral wolves, and the fate of the would-be stepdaughter she loved as her own.

As more of a science fiction and fantasy reader, Mariposa represented something of a departure for me. That said, I love any story with captivating characters, engaging dialogue, and a deeply engrossing plot. Mariposa checked all those boxes and then some. I didn’t just need to find out what happened to Meg, Amelinda, and the rest, I felt like they needed me to keep reading so they could finish telling their stories. It’s that rare quality that made Mariposa jump off the page for me, and why it’s easily one of my top 10 reads of the year so far. For fans of ghost stories and magical realism, this one is a must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Way With Words 7 Jan. 2015
By Laura Metzger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I received an ARC copy of this story for an honest review.

I wasn't sure what to expect as this was the first time I had ever read any of the author's work, but may I say this? I was completely blown-away by her beautiful prose. Once I settled in and began living within the pages of a fairly complex story, time flew by, as did the daylight hours, nighttime hours, etc. I read the entire novel in two sittings. That is the highest complement I can ever give a novel. I am, unfortunately, easily distracted.

Mariposa: A Love Story is both an elegant and an eloquent telling of an ill-fated love that requires more than a little mending of two hearts. More than a little reconciliation, or even conciliation. More than a corporeal presence, or two, is needed to pull off a gratifying resolution. It requires a special kind of connectedness, forged through love and adversity, one that transcends what we may believe about the here and the hereafter.

The author has an amazing way with words, such that it lifted me from the pages of the story into a sensory environment filled with hope and promise, despite a good bit of a mayhem. Yes, I lost a lot of sleep reading this book. It was worth it.

Lots of culture and nuances and descriptions that were incalculable. Charming and lovable characters. A complex story smoothly delivered. The cat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ghostly troubles 4 July 2015
By Deb Robbins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A love story? A ghost story? Both, actually. While I enjoyed both aspects, the ghosts interested me the most. Kim Wells added a few twists and tweaks to the usual portrayal of ghosts and the world they inhabit. As a result, I thought the ghosts and their stories were the best part of the book. Meg’s love story was both heart wrenching and hopeful. I found Amelinda’s love story to be more on the teenage level. Amelinda has some unique qualities, but I think her overall demeanor is closer to a teenager than to a young adult business owner.

I’m not familiar with the New Orleans area, so I found all of the information on its history and folklore fascinating and enjoyed the descriptions of areas in the city. Well written and entertaining is the short description for this book, and I enjoyed reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kim Well's has brought her signature southern tinged magical style to San Antonio 10 Jan. 2015
By Daniel Arthur Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After reading Kim Well's exceptional short, Mrs. Johnson's Blues, I was intrigued to discover how she would bring her signature southern tinged magical style to this San Antonio murder mystery. Her style came through in the distinctive rhythmical voice of Meg, a 23 year old that we learn from the first line has passed. I was mesmerized by the imagery of Meg's visceral San Antonio, and her pursuit to explore - well no spoilers - But I will say that Love Story is a proper brand. This is a story of distinctive style, unique voices, and detailed imagery, a story that will pull you into another reality and have you routing for the character, this is a story I highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 13 May 2015
By Michelle Omes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start by stating that I do not read "love stories" or "ghost stories". This book was both and neither; not too mushy or sci-fi for me. I was genuinely engrossed in this story. It was written with beautiful visual imagery, that made me feel like I was right there, and with an interesting, well thought out story line, that made it hard to put down. When I did take a break, I found myself wondering about the characters, who they were and what they would do next. I recommend this book to anyone who likes GOOD stories; love, ghost or other!
