  • Bone Dressing: The Dreaming on Nov. 13, 2012

    Michelle Brooks has continued the intriguing story of Syd and her companions Beau, Sarah and T.J as we travel with Syd on her journey of self discovery. In The Dreaming we learn more about Mr A and unravel further 'dressings' of Syd as she comes to learn more about who she is and her connection to Beau . I thoroughly enjoyed the journey on which Michelle took us, and laughed and cried all over again, when Syd, in another of her 'dressings', loses her one true love. They say what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, in Syd's case, this is truly an apt expression.
  • Witchwood Estate - Going Home on March 30, 2013

    As a HUGE lover of Patti Robert's work I was thrilled when she announced she was releasing her "TV series" length books - The Witchwood Estate Series. As anybody who regularly reads my reviews knows, I am a lover of all things paranormal; vampires, shifters, angels, you name it' I've probably read it. But I must admit I haven't read a lot paranormal containing witches, so was really quite excited when Patti said this was the basis of her new series. Now before you start thinking OK a story about witches; this is no 'Charmed' or 'Merlin'. The first book in the series; Going Home, introduces us to our heroine Alexandria, as she is getting ready to go home to Witchwood Estate to claim her inheritance. We meet Olly and Martha Barnaby her loving but rather curious guardians, and then go with Alexandria on the first leg of her journey home. What makes Patti's work so easy to read is that her stories have an emotion, spirit, and energy that draws you into the story and you are propelled along with them. With each story only the length of a standard TV mini-series or show, it is quite easy to read in one sitting, and then, like any other favourite TV show, you have to wait with baited breath till the next exciting episode.

  • Witchwood Estate - Ferntree Falls (book 2) on April 17, 2013

    This is Book 2 in Patti Robbert's new Witchwood Estate Series. Alexandria is now home in Ferntree Falls, and things are starting to happen that aren't quite what they seem. We are introduced to Raymond and Vera the caretakers of Witchwood Estate and a few other characters who's stories start to intertwine. In true Patti Roberts style the characters in this book jump off the page and draw you into their story as you are swept along for the ride. I can't wait for Book 3 to continue this delightfully enchanting story.
  • Paradox - Equilibrium (book 4) on Dec. 13, 2013

    Regular readers of my blog will know that I am a BIG BIG fan of Patti Roberts, so when I was given the opportunity to be one of the first people to read the next instalment in the Paradox Series, I jumped at the chance. In true Patti Roberts style, we are bombarded with a visual feast, with detail beyond imagining. You will find yourself drawn into the ancient world, the Bulgardi, Grigori, the Bakhna Rakhna people and others, as their story is woven seamlessly into Grace's. In Equilibrium, we continue with the story of Grace, but now thing have gotten real. Grace has been told some of the truth about those around her and just who she is. Juliette does not play as big a part of the story in Equilibrium, as she did in Bound By Blood, and I felt a kind of loss at her lack of presence. However, there are still a lot of things for Grace to discover and I can't wait to find out what happens next.
  • Close Call: A Doris & Jemma Vadgeventure on March 04, 2014

    Way before this book was published, Eloise March whom I am very pleased to call a friend started posting little snippets of what was to come via Facebook and Twitter. When I first read these snippets I thought, OMG this going to be one wild book. Let me tell you right now, I wasn't wrong. A book about a talking vagina can only be described as absolutely riotous. I enjoyed the story of Jemma and Doris from the very first page. We are led on a merry dance as Jemma with Doris in tow meets 'The One' but will it actually work out when Jemma find's out a huge secret, that will affect her, her best friend and her cousins life for ever. I loved the concept that our humble vagina might actually have a mind of it's own. In doing so, I think back to all the men I have met, stood next to and drooled over and think what discussions might have occurred between my vagina and ..... Not sure if I'm happy, or worried now! If you are looking for a short read that doesn't require you to follow a deep subplot, then I can guarantee that Close Call a Doris and Jemma Vadgeventure will leave you crying with laughter at the antics of Doris and her pals.
  • Gift of Continence on March 29, 2014

    I'm probably going to embarrass myself with confessing this, but for some reason every time I see the title of this book my brain reads Continence as Incontinence. Two entirely different words I know, but for some reason, my brain couldn't process it. OK, second confession, I had to Google continence just so I could figure out what the hell it meant, and why it would be a gift! That said, I now know the difference between Continence and Incontinence and I will get on with the review. This book is not for the fainthearted. If you do not enjoy side splitting Aussie tongue in cheek humor do not read this book. We meet Fiona on the morning of her wedding to the man of her dreams, or so we are lead to believe. From that point forward we are drawn into a story that could have unfolded in any number of kitchens around the world, as the wedding from hell turns into reality. This is a beautifully written story, that by the end will have every reader adding their two cents to the plot as plausible ways to see Tim get his just deserts. Yes there are sexual references and profanity throughout, but anybody who knows a true Aussie will know that's just how we roll. I thoroughly recommend this story, and look forward to reading more offerings by Tabitha Ormiston-Smith
  • Dance of Chaos on May 30, 2014

    OM Goddess!! If you thought Gift of Continence was funny, you will love Dance of Chaos. How could one woman get herself into so many situations and make it out alive! I honestly thought that life for Fiona MacDougall could not get any worse after reading Gift of Continence, but this little sneak peek into her life before marriage is even more hilarious. While Fiona is trying to come to terms with a new job, and the horrid new boss to go along with it, she is forced to save her little brother from himself. Let me just say, that writing a review about this book without giving away any spoilers is HARD !! So to that end, let me just say that Tabitha Ormiston-Smith, has again written an amazing story that will have your sides splitting with laughter. Warning - this story contains sexual references, profanity and Aussie tongue in cheek humor.
  • Professor Tomlinson's Last Experiment on June 27, 2014

    The other day while travelling home from work I needed a bit of a lift, so decided to read the second of Tabitha's Ormiston-Smith's short stories that I had recently gotten. OM Goddess !! This is Tabitha's first dip into the science fiction pool, and let me say that she did a pretty impressive job ! Remember, this is only a short story. It is snappy, punchy and has an ending that reminds me never leave my pets unattended !! If you are looking for a short story that will lift your spirits, then definitely give Professor Tomlinson's Last Experiment a go !!
