Featured eBook: Nothing But a Smile

Nothing but a Smile: A Novel


Nothing But a Smile is a story set during World War II.  Wink, a Stars and Stripes artist who injures his hand, is discharged from the army.  He meets Sal, the wife of a friend, who is trying to run a failing camera shop.  The two of them come up with a plan to make money by publising pin-up photos, with Wink as photographer and Sal as model.

Nothing But a Smile was an interesting story with great characters and plenty of WWII details in the setting.  The storyline went just beyond being a traditional romantic tale, and once it had done so, didn't go quite far enough for my taste.  Still it was a great read, and I recommend it.  I'm a bit surprised that there isn't already a movie in the works.
