  • See No Evil, My Pretty Lady on July 31, 2010

    SEE NO EVIL, MY PRETTY LADY…felt like, "See no answers, my gullible reader!" Miss Mae packs a wonderful mystery punch reminiscent of Agatha Christie's classic writing style with her desolate island full of would be killers. Join the skittish but thoughtful Dorcy as she tries to stay alive and fight strange feelings of attraction for Gareth, a likely Jack the Ripper suspect. Miss Mae takes you from the foggy streets of London to the drawing rooms of the upper class as a dead man's will gathers his enemies for an after-death hunt of the White Chapel murderer. Having read several of Miss Mae's novels, I find her historical voice and her ability write a unique who-dun-it as appealing and as captivating as ever. A very entertaining read that will fool you completely!
  • Runner's High on Oct. 12, 2014

    A wonderful, light-hearted story, Runner's High is an original and sweet romantic tale featuring an interesting take on the May-December romance. Providing a fun plot line about the love of running, I learned a lot about how runners think. It's easy to feel the passion the author has for the sport; it's quite motivating. This setting creates a unique backdrop for widower Ted Stoddard and the beautiful, young Hillary, who are in a running club together and attend the same church. As their relationship progresses from friendship to romance, it's endearing to hear Ted's concerns about the age gap even as he treats her with the respect every woman of any age deserves. Larry Hammersley write clean, crisp dialogue you don't want to skim over. He has an admirable gift for using quaint expressions that drive imagery and description. An excellent, compelling short read, I look forward to reading more of this author's books. His inspirational story lines, gentlemanly voice, and passion for living in the moment will appeal to romantics (and runners!) of all ages.
