Product Description

Product Description

Words can trick us.
Smoke obscures objects on the edge of our vision.
A mirror may reflect, but the eye sees what it wants.
A delicate scent can evoke another time and place, a memory from the past.
And a sentence can deceive you, even as you read it.

I have to use the term intrigued when it came to book. It’s got 17 short stories, none of them overlap, they are all different and some left me with my heart hammering in my chest, while others left me with a delighted grin.
I made my way through the book in one sitting purely because I got lost in the stories, the best kind of lost. There are several in there that I would love to read a full length novel of. I read the first one and private messaged the author saying ‘oh wow!’
McHeyzer didn’t let my hopes fade – even writing a little insight story into two of the characters from her novel Grit and another for Hit 149. McHeyzer has certainly hit the nail on the head with this addition to her growing stable of works.

Loved every single story. Loved that I didn't know where each one was going to take me, and I love that we may see some of these characters again in their own story later on down the track. I love everything that Margaret writes. I've read every book and recommend them all.

HASH(0xb0a05564) out of 5 stars A fabulous collection of short stories from a very talented author! 11 December 2014
By H BestSellersBestStellars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I am always looking for unique reads to pique my interest. Margaret McHeyzer is known for creating storylines that push boundaries and change perspectives. What she has provided with Smoke & Mirrors is genius and I hope you all purchase this collection of short stories right away. You get a little piece of everything to please any mood that you’re feeling. I've never had the opportunity to experience a book like this so I hope everyone will appreciate what this author has delivered. Each story is special and meaningful. I can tell a lot of thought when into each page. I loved pulling apart the different pieces and savoring each journey. Margaret’s writing continues to capture me and here is a perfect reason why. You all can’t go wrong buying this stellar set today!

HASH(0xb0a0a18c) out of 5 stars The endings... OH THE ENDINGS 18 December 2014
By Brittany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is unlike any that I’ve ever read. Margaret has outdone herself with this book!
In Smoke and Mirrors, there are two sections. Smoke, and of course, Mirrors. For the life of me I cannot remember what each section represents, but between these two sections are seventeen short stories.
I almost don’t want to write this review because she ripped my heart out with most of them.
Each short story is different. Different character occupations, names, scenarios. They’re all different. I really mean that.
But each short story ends on a twist.
And some of these twists killed me, because I saw them as cliffhangers.
Really, these short stories have the potential to be so much more. I can see most of these stories turning into best selling novels, and I’m trying my hardest to convince Margaret to write them. Because really. I need more!!!
I loved this book, but as I said, it killed me each time I ended a story. I looked at the book and was like “There’s more, right? Margaret, you left something out. Fix it!”
But she couldn’t, because that’s how they’re written.
And you get so drawn into these stories so quickly and then bam! It’s over and you’re like “Did she really end it like that?” The ability to draw the reader in from the first page, seventeen times, is amazing. She’s got such a talent that she needs to put to good use by writing more to these stories.
Simply because I couldn’t stand the fact that I kept getting heartbroken by cliffhangers, I give Margaret four stars.
I don’t want to see any bad, negative reviews. You’ve read this review, you know what you’re getting into.
You’ve been warned.

HASH(0xb1465378) out of 5 stars All sorts of awesome! 10 December 2014
By Mellaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As per usual, the master of twists, Margaret McHeyzer steps outside the norm with this outstanding selection of short stories. None of these stories were in any way similar or repetitive and I thoroughly enjoyed every single one of them. I particularly like that Ms McHeyzer left some of the endings somewhat vague so that we could form our own conclusions. I also LOVE that there are always little cameo appearances from characters we loved in previous books. All in all, I loved this collection of stories with a twist and won't hesitate to recommend.

This book while short packs a punch.... I'm NOT normally a fan of short stories I'm more of a meat and potato kind of person.... I went in with a jaded mind thinking what could possibly hold me or completely satisfy me with this book but.... This book was awesome.....

HASH(0xb0d73d80) out of 5 stars Brilliant!!! 11 December 2014

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I will have to admit, this was my first time reading a book of a collection of short stories. I went in thinking I wasnt going to like this... But dang if Margaret didn't suck me in with the first story! How a person's mind can write such a great collection is truly amazing! Each story brilliant, Each story full of punch, Each story had me flipping the page to the next one. Would love to see an expansion of a couple of my favorites <3 Thank you Margaret!!! You have done it again <3
