I gave this book 5 stars because I think it is a very different idea and thought it was refreshing.
I loved the way each story tied into the next one. It was almost like using a telescope and peeping into other people's private life. It was amusing and interesting to see the skeltons that are in everyone's houses.
The book is about a young girl looking into every house on her street and examining the life situations that go on, at different occasions. It is like the "fictional" version of
24/7 Life in America the book that looks into thousands of lives and what people across America are doing on a specific day. This is the same book " sort of" just fictional, and on one street in average America.
Fun Read- reads quickly.

The subject matter of these short stories is compelling. It is indeed interesting to see a snapshot of Middle America that is told in such a frank manner. The theme of 7 days and 7 sins, works well for a collection of stories.
However, I felt that a lot of the tales were cliche. In addition, Angela's character and position as supposed narrator is a forced thread to tie these stories together that is not only unnecessary, but detracts from the book. It would have been a better book had the author left her out and not explained how the stories were gathered.

Seven Days and Seven Sins is a extremely well-written and engaging book. The characters and their stories are all extraordinary in their own right and but are also tied beautifully together.
This is one of the best books I've read in a really long time!
I highly recommend it to anyone looking for high-quality, thought-provoking fiction!

You will not want to put this down. I spent every spare second of my time trying to read this book and was very sad to finish. I read many female authors and am very happy to say that Pamela Ditchoff is one of the best. I understand she is working on a new novel at the moment and I cannot wait for it to be published. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!

This is the best book I've read in a long time! Each story is so interesting that I found myself wishing there were more than 7 days in a week and more than 7 sins, just so I could read more!

I couldn't put the book down. I loved the characters and couldn't wait to see what would happen with each one of them. The characters were all tied together in a unique way.
