Editorial Reviews

Review

What a refreshing read this was. Acollection of ten short stories on the theme of love in all its forms. From theheart-breakingly accurate "Old Eyes" through the deeply touching andthought-provoking "The Promise" (which should be compulsory reading for anyonethinking of getting married) via some excellent twists and "stings in the tale".Just when you think you know where this is going, Victoria slaps you in the facewith a wet fish, which is rare and clever.
I am a sucker for the re-tellingof familiar stories with a completely new angle and this work really gave me arun for my money.
Victoria has a beautifullyeasy-to-read tone which avoids complex and tortuous phrasing, isn't overworkedor gushy and then smacks you between the eyes with expressions like "end worldhunger by next Thursday afternoon" to imply the impossibility of arequest.
"Welcome to the Family" had melaughing out loud because I'm an animal lover and "Another New Beginning" mademe shout at the computer screen with frustration (probably because it's a caseof been there, done that and am now using the T-shirt as aduster!)
I'd recommend this collection toanyone who has ever loved anyone, human or animal or anything. "Heart of Ice"was chilling in more ways than one. Read it to find out why.
By Cameron Lawton... Check it out over on her blog, if you are quick enough there may even be some chocolate left! t.co/1KBv3GN4

From the Back Cover

Love brings us together, but it can also tear us apart.
Dive into ten very different tales sharing the theme of love, the good, the bad and the hideously ugly. Materal love turns to obsession, infidelity leads to heartbreak and a prince ends up very disappointed with his lot.
You may have seen one or two of these characters before, but never in this light!
Twisted perspectives on old tales, and new stories whose characters will stay with you forever...
To love is mans greatest gift, and his greatest curse.
