Smashwords book reviews by Lorna Russell

  • Cats In Clover on Sep. 03, 2010
    (no rating)
    Charming and humerous are the two words that most readily come to mind when describing this book. Tales of day-to-day life in a household dominated by cats, as all homes should be, with a supporting cast of dogs, deer, squirrels and many other furry friends and some humans thrown in for incidental interest. Loved it so have also bought the sequel 'Siamese Summers' and will no doubt purchase the third in the series, 'Cat Under Cover'.

    This, the second book in the Adriana Island series, is just as readable as the first book, Cats in Clover. The cat family has increased from 3 to 6 and with it the fun has increased by the same magnitude. More insights into family and furry family life.
  • Flannel Sheets and Pomegranates, A Short Story on Sep. 25, 2010

    My Comments: Great title, lovely cover picture. Story should be categorised as for teenagers. Immature writing.
  • Cat Under Cover on Sep. 25, 2010

    More tales from Adriana Island. More matter-of-fact and not quite so humerous as the first two books in the series. I was disappointed with the abrupt ending. It felt as if the author was bored with writing and wanted to end the story quickly.

    Such a promising synopsis, such bad writing. Life's too short to read this crap.
  • The Adventures of Miss Maybelle on Dec. 18, 2010

    I really enjoyed this book. It runs through so many emotions: confusion, joy, happiness and great sadness. An extraordinary woman's life captured in words, very well portrayed. It might be fiction, but it's excellent story-telling.
  • The Way Home on Dec. 30, 2010

    I loved this book. A romantic tale that tugs at the heartstrings and leaves one with a feeling of comfortable warmth. Yes, Bessie does have support all along the way; that is what makes the story to heartwarming. Yes, there are typos and spelling errors, but these are few and far between and can be overlooked. A small irritation for me is that there is no Table of Contents even though the book is divided into chapters. I think Meredith Rae Morgan is a fine story-teller and I look forward to reading more of her work.

    As Brett’s wife Suzie asks: is Mom confusing or confessing? As I ask, is Jonathan Barrett confused because I certainly am! I get the gist of the tale but sometimes I wondered where we were at!!
