Smashwords book reviews by Marie Symeou

  • Idol Siren on Dec. 22, 2011

    I enjoyed reading this. It's not the usual thing I'd go for but it was recommended to me so I thought I'd give it a go. It's the story of a young woman trying to make a success of her life as a singer-songwriter while trying to forget her traumatic past. It's quite a short book and it would have been interesting if it was longer as I found the lead character easy to relate to and would have liked to know more about her as she intrigued me.
  • Daughter of the Sea on April 01, 2012

    Loved the writing style, which drew me in from the start, and it was an interesting and unusual tale.
  • The Redheaded Stepchild on June 25, 2012

    A well written coming of age novel which offers an intriguing glimpse into the world of beauty pageants and the often complicated relationship between step-daughter and step-mother. I found this author's excellent detailed descriptions and realistic character depiction truly gripping. And though this story jumps back and forth in time, which I found a bit confusing at first, I still wanted to read more. Overall, a good read if you like realistic characters and insights into life in a small town, and to experience this through the eyes of a believable and likeable narrator, one which I'm sure many readers can relate to.
