Fall in Love Anthology: The First Review

I hope you all had a good Christmas. I did, and I got some lovely presents that included various Mummy-related things. The baby (whom we have been referring to as Flump, after the fluffy cartoon characters) even got some things of its own, too. Those have all been packed into a capacious storage box and put in the loft with the other things we've already been very generously given. I quite fortunately hit I-Can-No-Longer-Button-Up-My-Jeans time right before the sales too, so I've managed to get some nice things in the maternity sales for not a lot of money.

Back to writing-related subjects, and hot on the heels of Haunted Hearts' first review, Fall in Love: An Anthology has also just received its first review. This, too, comes from new blog Romance Reviewed, and I, along with my anthology-mates Nell Dixon and Rebecca Ruger, can bask quite happily in the glow of the compliments we have received.

Here's a snippet:

... [T]his tale really ends the anthology on a high note ... Jessica Raymond manages to pack a great deal of back-story and incident into fifty pages of text, while never making the story feel rushed or confusing ... [T]he tale feels expertly paced, an intriguing storyline interspersed with memorable characterisation, some expert dialogue and some touchingly romantic moments ...
"The Little Shop of Dreams" was awarded a maximum 5 roses from Romance Reviewed, and you can read the full review of the anthology here.
