Smashwords book reviews by Sylvia Morice

  • In Search of Nectar on Jan. 26, 2012

    This is a delightful little story, well-written and entertaining. I only wish there more adventures for Wilburn and Hedwicket...would love to see what else they could get up to. Will Wilburn go back to being 'just' an accountant? Will he search for other gnomes who need help? I'd love to find out.
  • The Best Kept Secret In Normandy on March 14, 2012

    I enjoyed this quick-read. The characters were interesting, although the length of the story made it impossible to fully develop them. Think this could be a great longer story, with more detail added/filled in. I was a little confused over the time period of the story--Ceci's friend had a large bottle of lubricant on the plane (which would never be allowed today) and she wore "hot pants", so I thought it might be the sixties, but there were other references that made it sound as if the story is set in today's world. Maybe I'm just confused. But even with these distractions, the story-line is good...I wanted to finish reading the piece right away. I did think that the ending seemed somewhat artificial, where in all of Paris Louis finds Ceci her first afternoon back a park...Paris is huge...difficult to suspend my belief that this wouldn't happen. But then, neither would I believe that a glass slipper could change her life, so there-you-go! Overall this was a lovely story.
  • Dance Me To The End Of Time on March 14, 2012

    Lovely story! It is difficult to draw a reader in, in such a short piece, but this author does just that. Makes me want to read more by Catherine Cavendish, and that is a good thing for any author to hear! Well done. Now I think I'll go put some Strauss on my iPod!
  • His Ashes on April 23, 2012

    A well-written short story capturing one widow's grief at the loss of her husband. This story shows that grief knows no boundaries, and there are no simple answers for living without a loved one. I enjoyed reading this. Thanks.
  • Take a Deep Breath on July 16, 2012

    Liv and her daughter Sara plan to spend the summer at Liv's grandmother's cottage on the lake, the same cottage where Liv spent many childhood summers of her own. Only this year, Liv is recovering from a recent divorce and is struggling to deal with a series of panic attacks that threaten to cripple her. Enter Cam, the childhood friend, the boy that Liv had fallen in love with as a teenager but had been too shy to pronounce her love to him at the time. Author Shar Dimick reunites these two old friends and once again, sparks fly. Although there were times in the story that I felt like shaking both characters and telling them to 'wise up and pay attention', and I thought that some of the actions were perhaps not realistic, I never-the-less enjoyed the story line and the ending. A wonderful, light romance that is perfect for summer reading at the beach or at the lake.
  • Hostile Witness, A Josie Bates Thriller on July 31, 2012

    I read this book a while ago and meant to write my review of it, but life somehow got in the way. However, better late than never! Hostile Witness was an engaging story that I enjoyed from start to finish. The main character is flawed (as are most of us), and often wonders if she is making the right decision. I read the book in a short period of time and look forward to reading more from this author. Great job keeping this reader engaged.
  • Swim With Me on Sep. 24, 2012

    Beautifully written short story. Caught me right away and carried me with it to the end. My only complaint is that it is, perhaps, too short...would love to know more about the cast of characters rather than be left to my own imagination. But thoroughly enjoyed this, even though it is very short.
