Review by a Fan:
I picked this up as a quick beach read. Heart Warming Tales is a short book of stories with intriguing plots and pleasant characters. Although each story is set within the real world there seems to be a fantastical quality to each. The style of the writing is satisfyingly simple and easy to follow. Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and will certainly check out some of the other titles written by this author.

This collection consists of three short stories and a set of letters written to the author by her late elder brother.
The first story, "The Psychiatrist and the Thief" is a story about Dr. Brown who is assaulted by a thief who had
previously kidnapped his secretary. In a story that could have had disastrous consequences, the author skilfully turns around the plot and has the thief apprehended. The theme of this story is: "Crime does not pay." The setting is universal and the events could occur in any business or home.
The two other stories, "Marriage on the Rocks" and "The Undertaker's Wife" both take place in the author's native Trinidad.
The theme of both stories is "Love conquers all." In the first story, the wife, Maria, is discontented when her wealthy husband gambled away all his money and then moves the family from the city to a rural area where he begins farming the land he had inherited from his parents. She leaves her husband and children and goes to the city in search of adventure. When her husband finds her a year later, he is able to forgive her and welcome her back into his life.
In "The Undertaker's Wife", we have a suspicious wife who believes her husband is involved in underhand activity and decides to spy on him. However, she soon discovers that his business is legitimate and that he actually runs a big funeral parlor. The couple reconciles in the end and there is no more suspicion on either part.
These stories are uplifting in that they demonstrate the better part of human nature and show how fulfilling life is when people can forgive one another and live in harmony.
