Some Reviews for Waiting for Richard
Good Morning, Gentle Readers,
This morning I thought I would share with you a few reviews for my novella, Waiting for Richard. If you are unfamiliar with it, here is the storyline.
Retired insurance office manager Skye McKenna launches a new career as a children's author. On a book tour in Australia, she finds adventure and romance with a reclusive elephant-loving veterinarian.
This is rather long, short story in the TIME AFTER TIME series, which follows a pair of quintessential lovers, Richard and Nicole, through their lives together, at different times, in different places, with different names and faces. This follows the alternate theory that the relationships we forge in this lifetime, both good and bad, are continued in the future and rooted in the past. Those people who have had a profound effect on us in this life will find us in the future.

A Joy to Read!
Waiting for Richard, by Carol Ann Kaufman, is a short novella added to the Time After Time series. Reading this novella first has made me want to read every one of the books in the series.
Skye is happily retired and working on a series of children's books. She is happy, but the one thing that bothers her is this image she has in her mind of the man of her dreams. Considering herself too old to even consider looking for him, she keeps herself absorbed in her children's books. An unexpected trip to Australia and a meeting with an elephant expert makes her realize that you never know who's going to enter your life and grab your love.
There is also many other twists and turns going on in these 65 pages including a shooting, a runaway brother and other craziness that makes this novella a must read. Take it as an entry into the world of all the Time after Time series, because once you read this you're going to want to read all of them.

Love a good Novella!
By C. R.
Amazing! This novella fits perfectly in the world of Time After Time! It's got twist and turns in it's 65 pages! I loved the setting, as it really reminded my of places I've lived. This book was a quick read, but a very good one as well. The characters were interesting, and the plot kept me turning the pages just like all the other Time After Time novels! I loved them all, and don't wanna see the series end!

Twists and Turns Anyone...?
By S. J. C.
People in our lives come and go. This novella is about those who leave an imprint on our soul and never really leave us. One woman's quest to find a mysterious man in her dreams (and her heart) leads her on adventures near and far, taking us with her on the journey to find her place in the present...and the past. Part of the "Time After Time" series from author Carol Ann Kauffman. You'll want to read all of them following this.
