Smashwords book reviews by Mervyn Walker

  • Lemon and Lace on Feb. 10, 2013

    Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories, and hope Miss Worstall has some more slices of life to entertain us with.
  • Ryann on Feb. 26, 2013

    Some excellent world building, and the main character has a charm and freshness about her that lends an air of innocence that you just know will serve her well, despite her desperate circumstance. I enjoyed this story, and hope to read more from this author.
  • Smashwords Writing Duel on Sep. 18, 2013

    A great story - black humour abounds, and I'm still uncertain whether there were deliberate miftakes. Entertaining and recommended.
