Review by: Zorro1782 on Oct. 14, 2017 :
This review covers "Holy Water."

The story runs the length of a young boy's life from 6 to the time when he returns to the farm from WW I and encompasses his life with his family and what some think to be an "imaginary friend" named Lily.

In this series, the author chooses to draw on part folklore to enrich the story, by involving a water spirit with the lead character, Charlie. They interact well together, their banter familiar and their interactions very plausible given their different circumstances; despite such differences, they relate well to each other and love each other in such a way they get together and marry.

It's a charming story that will pull at your heart strings, plus give you real glimpses of how troubling war and life is on a normal family--healed and saved in several ways by a gift of "water."

If you enjoy a slow-burning romance with a delightful banter and chemistry between characters, you can't go wrong with this story.

Review by: Zorro1782 on Oct. 14, 2017 :
This review involves "The Gaelic Goddess."

This tale begins with a not-so-unfortunate-death of a lawyer which introduces Tom Phelan, his mother and the dead man's "companion" who manifests herself to Tom inside the church at the funeral. This unknowingly begins a long yet intriguing and heart-warming romance--out of the depths of great pain no less.

Tom at first seems clueless how to deal with a goddess in his midst, but despite his incredulity, he presses on to know her the right way: he talks to her and cares for her like a gentleman. He's also a lawyer, who tries to find a way to break the contract that enslaved her. He proves chivalrous and giving, which wins him her heart.

The author composes the tale with an appropriate humor, a convincing dignity and a heart-warming tale that will embrace readers and not let them stop reading until they complete the last page. It's a lovely little romance that is refreshingly modern yet partly ancient in its delivery and worth every penny. I cannot think of a single reservation in recommending this to everyone.

Review by: Zorro1782 on Oct. 14, 2017 :
I can recall some stories I've read here that I enjoyed or even loved for some reason, but I have *never* been so enchanted and enraptured by one until "The Snow Maid."

We start with a man ready to die, who happens to see something that might make his final moments passable, then he ends up recovering with Polina. At first you confused me with the constant name-changing, but I rode it out and understood why there was the triple reference. I loved how she nursed him back to health and especially how they both grew younger and actually developed a plausible friendship--to the extent she loved all his "dad" jokes--which completed her sudden, final transformation into the Maid. I don't know what charmed me more: their banter, him treating her gentlemanly or both of them holding back so they didn't force themselves upon the other! When they finally couple, what a glorious union! It was teased, hinted at until it exploded onto the scene. You wove such a rich tapestry of sentiment, thoughts and company together into such an incredibly tender scene. I guess I can best summarize it as a slow burn and a slow seduction and all the classic great lit markers are there: non-understanding of the real situation/denial/grudging acceptance/realization and then full-blown wham! By the time they unite themselves, they pleasure each other so wonderfully and none of it feels forced. Either you redacted this marvellously on your own, you had a skilled editor or some combination of the two...but I can't think of a single thing you could have improved. I even loved him changing her hair to curly red! While I thought you would choose the actual traditional "romantic" interpretation (they burn brightly but then die), you took a classic, mystical tale to a modern, happy ending! She even loves Mexican food and he's talking to kids about the Snow Maid!

Totally sensational, charming and completely satisfying to both the mind and senses. A hands-down 5. :)
