100 Pages A Day...Stephanie's Book Reviews

I absolutely love historical fiction and read a lot of it; I love to learn history this way.  I also enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, horror, thriller and non-fiction science.


Beneath, a short story - Heather B. Moore

Chalice Stratford has undergone a trauma that has left her scarred physically and mentally.  She has been placed as a museum docent in France as part of witness protection.  Her very first day on the job, a robbery takes place and she is taken hostage.  Surprisingly, the situation does not bother Chalice all that much and the man behind the heist is very different than she would suspect.

For a short story, this had a lot of character development and sense of place.  It definitely left me wanting to know more about both Chalice and Omar's histories.  The story was fast-paced and took off right from the start.  I was a little surprised that romance was introduced so quickly, but from their characters, it was not surprising.  Now, I really want to check out the next book, Finding Sheba.
