Smashwords book reviews by Gilbert J Hardwick

  • Milk and Oranges on Feb. 23, 2012

    It may be a culture and gender difference, even for a work styled as 'women's fiction, but I found these stories gossipy and ingenuous. I don't believe most women, or women outside a certain limited bourgeoisie would find it especially entertaining. Adventure travel to different cultures and places, and close engagement with a much broader range of personalities would help fill out this writer.
