Another entry in the Mommy’s Little series.  This one doesn’t feature the immortal diner owner, Mommy, to a great degree.  These stories are very short, and just so clever. In this installment, Remmao and Licenius live in the times of Cleopatria.  Remmao is the Queen’s scribe, while Licenius is a Roman emissary to Egypt.  They are lovers, in a time very dangerous for Romans.  Remmao comes up with a plan for them to … Continue reading

Heather Webber – Truly, Madly (Lucy Valentine #1)

Author: Heather Webber

Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks
Genre: M/F Mystery
ISBN 13:  9780312946135

So I am not a fan of the cover.  It implies fluff and there is nothing fluffy about this novel.  Lucy Valentine comes from a long line of magically gifted matchmakers but an accident when she was a teenager scrambled her gift.  So instead of being able to read auras and find people’s soul mates she can find your lost keys.  Problems with the family leave Lucy in charge of … Continue reading

I so wanted to love this short story.  It is rockers, and that’s a favorite genre of mine.  The problem, however, is that I hated the main character.  Razor is a selfish guitarist in the band the Evil Psycho Gods.  They are playing a gig at the Loaded Snail (yes, love the names), and he is onstage scouting his one-off for the night. He is on the lookout for a … Continue reading

This is a short story from the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.  This is a fantasy story that seemed historical when I first started reading, until I realized Kennet was reading the newspaper, so not as medieval as I thought.  Kennet’s best friend is Brennar, who also happens to be Kennet’s secret love. Brennar is the heir to an estate, and to add to his gloriousness, he is chosen as the … Continue reading

I was never a Sherlock Holmes fan – like I have read NONE of the books/stories and I was bored out of my mind when the old Basil Rathbone movies were on WGN Family Classics when I was a kid, so I didn’t go into this with any preconceived notions – which might be good.  Anyway, I sort of know the deal with Holmes and Watson, but … Continue reading
