Uncle Mike's Love - Reviewed

Thursday, June 28, 2007 Review: Uncle Mike's Love Uncle Mike's Love by Christine ColumbusMike felt the biggest mistake in his life was moving away from his hometown and not asking the first love of his life Patty to go with him. Now, twelve years later he's back in town to take care of his nephews and he's hoping to get a second chance with Patty. Miniature(29 pages) SweetThis is a charming story which focuses on one man's realization that letting what someone else might think about the woman you are in love with is a sure way to lose that love. Will he be able to win Patty back now that he's back in town?

Tuesday, June 12, 2007 Review: Drama Queen Big thanks to our guest reviewer - Nancy Lindley-Gauthier Drama Queen by Christine ColumbusDid Mark bestow more than his mother’s dog? Will Michelle’s unexpected pet bring more than drama into her life? Christine Columbus' rosette, "Drama Queen," starts with a charming surprise. But the first surprise is by no means the best, and intriguing elements become clear as you read along. All grocery store managers are not "Short, pudgy balding" men, and co-workers don't always have a clue who you really are. The author offers clear visuals, and the reader feels as though they were participating in each scene. Through the main character's imagination, we uncover the real person, the person who'd like to skip out of work early and go line dancing. Never has a grocery store aisle seemed so full of possibilities, or been so appealing.This is a wonderful tale of romance, true, but also, of simple love. The two main char
