The Joker by Georgia Rose

Posted on

Joker

This short story is a welcome return to Melton Manor for loyal readers of The Grayson Trilogy but it is also a stand-alone story and a delicious taster for anyone tempted to read A Single Step.

Will Carlton, one of the characters from the trilogy, now reveals his innermost thoughts. We knew he was charming and attractive but here is the explanation of his fear of commitment. After a night of passion with an attractive girl he will probably not see again, we learn how service in Iraq has affected his view of life.

This story demonstrates the complete involvement Georgia has in the world of her trilogy. The characters are real human beings with emotional baggage and deep feelings and she cares about each one. As a single short story, The Joker, is perfectly crafted, ending just as you would wish.

For a fuller, superb review go to Barb Taub’s blog.

  1. Thanks so much Liz. I was thinking of you when I wrote this. I remember you making a comment somewhere that you would like to know more about Carlton, and now here we are 🙂 Could I just add for anyone who comes this way that this short story is FREE until Friday if anyone fancies a copy. Thanks!
