Meet Me on Love Lane by Nina Bocci ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"The bus rolled to a stop.  A blinking yellow light hung over a pair of rickety train tracks.  They looked defunct with the chipped white safety bars remaining at attention on the rusted metal poles.  I spied a large green sign next to it.  It swung back and forth in the May breeze.  HOPE LAKE  25 miles"  (p 11)

The Wicked Redhead by Beatriz Williams ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

1998 "The photograph in Ella's hand was about the size of a small old fashioned postcard. It had a matte finish, almost like newsprint, and the edges were soft and frayed, as you might expect from a photograph over seventy years old. From anything over seventy years old, really, but especially a photograph of a naked woman. And what a woman." (p1)
