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. This collection also includes “The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber,” a companion 36-page story written exclusively for The Confessions. And, finally, all secrets are revealed in “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz,” an exclusive, in-depth interview. Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire…


Anytime there is a plan to read anything surrounding this motley crew I’m all in like poker baby! I finally learn how to pronounce Soren. LOL. I loved read Soren & Father Ballard confession. It was things I knew already, but seeing them from Soren is always heart-melting. Goodness I loved that so much, and Father Ballard was hilarious. He was the perfect confessor for Soren and Nora. These confessions delve deeper into the personal relationships between everyone involved. It answers some question that we might have and gives us new hopes on future things. The relationship between Soren and Nora still feels so very new after all this time. It’s nothing that these two won’t do for each other. They simply know and love each other, I always things it’s on another level.

After reading both confessions from the sinners, we have an in-depth interview with Tiffany Reisz. I’m excited about that. Well I was excited when I started reading it, and then something happened that I’ve never experienced from this author before. I was bored. Completely bored by the interview. Not bored by her per say, bored because I’m not catholic, and I don’t know if all her readers are, but alot of the terminology went over my head. It was alot about the church, and the religion aspect. I mean I just get the minimal with the series LOL. I was born and raised as a Baptist Christian, so my religion is simple to me. I tried looking up stuff. It was too much for me to stop and look up. I think those parts definitely brought my happiness down with all that was accomplished before we got to these parts. I do appreciate the interview. I learned some new things about this amazing author. I would like to see more with the series, but totally understand it not being the right time for it.
