Reviews for Spun Web

Reedsy Reviewer

I give Spun Web by S.L. Van 5 out of 5 stars for tackling a subject that can cause so much pain, yet everyone wants to keep locked away. Warning this book is for mature readers due to mild explicit content."


A fast read with a real plot and not just romance driven . . . an unexpected ending that keeps your interest even if you have to start and stop to attend to your other responsibilities."
