Review by

Any fan of short stories will enjoy this selection of entertaining tales by Jean Collen. The author presents women's viewpoints, emotions, and experiences accurately and uniquely. The women characters are interesting, complex, and sympathetic (the men are mostly cads). One wonders how much is autobiographical. The writing is descriptive and precise. The style flows nicely, making for easy and pleasant reading. "The Wedding Singer", "Miss Stratton Disappears", and "The Sunset Gleams", to name a few, all have the right combination of humour and sadness. In short, these well written stories are very enjoyable.
