    People, come on - this woman can Small kingdoms book Hobbet presents a cast of characters that range across culture and class, starting with Mufeeda, a Muslim wife in a prominent household, who must defend her Indian maid against the harangues of her mother-in-law. In these stories, we follow DeWitt, who is currently a no-nonsense high school principal, but was previously some sort of training agent in a top-secret agency you know, the assassin sort of agency. Anne is thorough, dedicated, slightly unemotional yet loyal.

    Every short story was introduced by the author with a small text, giving a background on how Harris had Small kingdoms book up with the idea of the plot or characters, which also added to the general story and reading experience. All interesting and fun to read. In these 4 short stories, we see how her past affects her present. Harris does provide a clever twist in "Sarah Smiles," in which a star pupil is the victim of physical abuse.

    My only gripe is that it was short and I honestly would have liked more. Charlaine Harris never disappoints and Anne DeWitt is one of her best characters ever. I super enjoyed being in this world with these characters and would gladly gobble up more. With each new story, I've tried to show a different side of Anne.

Small kingdoms book your review of Small Kingdoms Write a review Shelves: 2-starsworld-books-challengemiddle-eastkuwaitcontemporary I was excited to find Small kingdoms book book about Kuwait, and the first couple of chapters sucked me in.

But what if we were? I like heroes who probably aren't heroic at all and if they heroic they are only heroes from Monday to Friday.

I've now written several short stories about Anne DeWitt initially known as Twyla Burnside in the past few years, and I've thoroughly enjoyed writing every one.

In the late s, King Jigme Singye Wangchuk relinquished his absolute power and encouraged democratic reforms. All opinions herein are my own and freely given. Harris' fans are sure to enjoy this collection of short stories.

The first two stories feature 'helping' students, which had a sociopathic vengeance, poetic justice component. Hobbet presents a cast of characters that range across culture and class, starting with Mufeeda, a Muslim wife in a prominent household, who must defend her Indian maid against the harangues of her mother-in-law.

But Wallis and Futuna also comprise three traditional kingdoms that are still ruled by paramount chiefs chosen by their people.

There are also some delicious twists and turns in these stories which are hard hitting and gripping. The reader has to stop every so often and wonder if they would have Originally appearing in the pages of Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, Small Kingdoms introduced Anne DeWitt, who presents herself as the principal of a small-town high school, but who's a whole lot more.

Just brilliant. Anne had a unique way of helping, as well as a new cohort. I give two stars rather than one because it was readable, the writing style and character development were at least minimally competent although not exceptional, and I never felt the urge to throw the book at a wall.

I wondered how many little routines we employ daily, without being aware of them. I sincerely cannot think of a negative thing to say, except that perhaps this book of a few intertwined short stories just simply was not long enough! I had not read these previous 4 stories so this was all new and entertaining to read.

The other books I've read and loved by Harris all had deep, intricate world building.
