Review by: Sylvia King on June 28, 2012 :
I found the begining a little cold and stilted. However it really takes off and well lets just say in this story - the gets the cake and eats it too.

I have just read "April's Fool," and enjoyed the fact that for once the abused wife leaves the abusive husband. But that's not all that I liked. Being able to draw a reader into the story, and to evoke emotions, in so few words, is surely the sign of a great creative writer. Well done. I'll be reading more of your work!

I loved this... Morgen Bailey sketches a scene, builds a mood, and places you in her characters' worlds so economically, then comes the catharsis at the end. Wonderfully-tight writing, and a great - and deliciously-dark end twist..! - Enjoy!

Short fiction is truly an art form, and April's Fool is a fine example. Morgen Bailey manages to get the reader to connect with the main character and understand her actions in a very brief story that leaves you wanting more, but in a good way. Read it...recommend it...it's perfectly delicious!

Morgen Bailey is an expert at character-building. This short story builds the tension with memorable characters, the kind you know you could meet on the street. There were several hints throughout as to what was going to happen, but I was so invested in the story I needed to read to the end just to make sure. Professional writing. Well done.

A revenge story sweet to read. Dramatic tension builds from short, terse sentences. The author is skilled at revealing emotion through action. Would like to read more from this author

A bit skimpy on details, but we get the idea.
