  • The Funeral Home: Book 2 of Series on April 02, 2011

    30% read, so far I'm impressed with Joyce Freese newest novel. It is well-researched, placing the reader solidly in a lively Victorian setting once the heroine Victoria becomes Dorian. Joyce creates good suspense and mystery through pacing, deliberately brief references and parallels between the two worlds -- modern and Victorian -- she creates. I'm also intrigued by Joyce's use of both 1st person and 3rd person omniscient POVs to tell the story, moving deftly from Victoria/Dorian to the other characters(Megan, Emma, Quinn, for eg) who populate her story.
  • Grace on June 12, 2011

    Charming story -- Macca and Eloise love and concern for their daughter shines through as the story unfolds, each parent in a unique way. Teenager Grace's defiance and angst is universal. I would love to see a longer version of the story to expand the characters and allow them to settle into their personalities. We only get glimpses in a short piece, but that's the nature of shorts, isn't it? Nice conflict in the setting (depression era against the wealth of Grace's family).
  • Edible Art and Other Flash Fiction on June 12, 2011

    lovely, funny characters in each story -- and so human!
  • Pinochle Anyone? on June 12, 2011

    So, being one card short of a deck isn't so bad after all.
  • Victoria's Home: Book 1 of Series on June 24, 2011

    Another great story from Joyce. Joyce uses 1st, 3rd and third person omniscient (Point Of View) to move the story forward by increasing tension; the technique allows the readers to know more than the characters. Even the old Victorian mansion becomes a player as the story unfolds, lending a ghostly venue for this mystery thriller. Nice use of contrast; POV, the anonymity of the stalker (we suspect from the beginning he isn't Peter Carter, as he claims) against Victoria's need for recognition; Victoria's independence, Shane's regrets, the stalker's need for dependence, old and new, for example. All these contrasts help build depth and suspense as the story unfolds. I won't give away the plot, but I will tell you this is an enjoyable glimpse into Victoria Garraway's world of real estate, a golden past, a modern thriller and love denied.
