The “She” Stands Alone by Nadine C Keels is a short romance story. Sheridan isn’t really very lucky when it comes to love. No one seems to notice her. Is she being too specific in what she is looking for? Does it show that she is happy to stay in with her books? She has tried but Sheridan decides that the best way is to just go it alone. Tonight, she has a hot date – with herself. That’s right; Sheridan has made the decision to date herself. She takes herself out to nice restaurants for fancy meals, she even takes herself roller-skating. And, while she is looking out for number one, the mailman suddenly starts to take an interest in her. Sheridan never thought of Eugene as being her type before, but could it be that all this time she has been looking for love, it’s been staring her in the face all along?

The “She” Stands Alone by Nadine C Keels was a very short hit of romance with a touch of humor. Nadine has fitted an awful lot into just a few pages and it was a little overwhelming to start with. The story is written from the first person perspective and much of it dealt with Sheridan’s background – maybe there is a full-length book in the pipeline? The two main characters were interesting and, to be fair, you could easily relate to either one of them. I did enjoy the story; it is clear that Nadine has the art of writing down to a tee because, although it was short, there was a great deal of depth to it. This is a good book to read while you are waiting for the bus or train and it has a nice upbeat ending. I would like to read a full-length novel from Nadine as I feel that it will be quite a read.


“If you like your love short, sweet, and clean, definitely pick up The “She” Stands Alone! 5/5–enjoyable!” ~Kelly Smith Reviews
