For Moving In

Seriously Reviewed said "You know? Every so often you read a story that starts a little slow on the first few pages and then.....BAM it just explodes! This was one of them for me."

Kaye's Book Review Page
on which she said The book is "short, sweet, light-hearted and just plain fun."

Vince at Philosophy of Romance said "Alice Audrey’s voice is fresh, feisty, full of surprises and always fun. The author also deals with real people having real problems and she does it in a very insightful way."

Nessa at Chrysalis Stage said "If you like sweet, fast-paced romance with a hot hero and all of the misunderstandings that two people can throw at each other, then you will love this story."

Night Owl Reviews didn't have anything nice to say about it. Hey, you can't win them all.

Brenda Talley of Romance Studio said " I recommend this book to anyone. It was a pleasure to read and I shall look for more of her work in the future. "

By Guta Bauer at Murphy's Library did it twice! Once in English and once in Portuguese. I'm assuming they both say, "Life goes on, choices need to be made and we can never let our past deny us of our future. That’s just some of the things we learn from this story. "

Sandra Nachlinger said "It's been a while since I've read a novelette, and I enjoyed this quick read. MOVING IN by Alice Audrey is a sweet story (rated PG or maybe even G) laced with humor. The best friend character is a hoot! This book is a fun escape and just what I needed to read today."

If you did a review of my book, let me know! I'll be glad to link to you, even if you didn't like the book.

Switch

Liam, Alicia, and Sally sat around in Alicia’s half-finished basement.

“Not much to look at, is it,” Sally said. “How many more years until your father turns this into a den?”

“Who knows.” Alicia shrugged.

“Well, I think it’s fine the way it is. No one but us wants to come here even though there’s a mini fridge and a couch and even a TV. Think about it.” He jumped onto the arm of the broken down sofa and struck a pose, invisible microphone in hand. “It’s our own little clap trap turn around karaoke burn down…”

“Someone must have flipped his switch,” Alicia groaned.

“He won’t last long,” Sally drawled. “The switch might be flipped, but there’s no where to plug in.”

Suzie’s House 391 : The Flip of a Switch

Suzie's House

“So what exactly were you thinking? What happened to you, man?” Vin leaned forward until he could feel the hard edge hidden inside the fluff of the overstuffed chair in Suzie’s den.

“I guess I owe you that.” Drew frowned at the floor. “I told you I couldn’t face Suzie.”

The Tale of Francis Mawson Rattenbury

This is the story as told by our tour guide on the amphibious bus in Victoria. It is to the best of my memory with no effort to verify any of it.

Francis Rattenbury was in his early twenties when he won the contest to determine who would be the architect to build the new capitol building in Victoria. He had submitted the plans drawn by his uncle. He did not have any personal experience in construction.

He did pretty well for such a noob. See the photo at the top? Yeah, not bad. Too bad he forgot the bathrooms. That and coming in at twice the price as what was budgeted.

Tina: What is cocci? I don’t see anything.

Theodore: Of course not. Like all bacteria, they are too small to see.

Goats on the Roof

Before we went, I knew that there was a chance that we would see actual goats on the roof, and guessed there would be sod. That’s about the only thing about the place I got right.

I’d visualized a single building by itself in the woods with maybe a little parking out front. I had assumed the road itself would be a sleepy country lane. I imagined the building itself as little more than a cabin, though I knew it held a restaurant. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

Goats on the Roof is a place in Vancouver Island that caters to tourists. I wouldn’t call it a tourist trap, though. More like a tourist mall.

The cornerstone is the store by that name. It’s much, much bigger than it looks at first glance. Inside is room for a grocery section, a housewares section, a place with imported goods like enormous fans and chopsticks, art supplies, paper, books, diaries, and a good sized restaurant.

Male or Female?

Theodor: Well, I can certainly see the family resemblance.

Tina: I don’t. I mean, babies all look alike, but I can hardly believe that’s my father.

Theodor: I can run a test if you want proof, but really you look alike right down to the cocci.

Tina: What are cocci?

Theodor: Don’t ask.

Proper Place

Fork on the left. Knife on the right turned with the sharp edge toward the plate so no one could be accidentally cut. Then comes the spoon, then soup spoon, salad fork, desert fork.

He remembered all the details from his years of service as a butler. He set four places – as many as his humble table would hold. Once done, he stood by the window, and took in the view. Fifty years of service for a gold watch and this.

There would be no meal. Had there been anyone to ask, he would have said he wanted to keep in practice. Just in case.

Suzie’s House 389 : Relating to the Song

Suzie's House

The catty part of Kate noticed that Emma didn’t have any problem singing the song even without a bag over her head or mask. She even looked appropriate with her tearful eyes. It was obvious that Emma genuinely related to every word.
