on Sep. 17, 2012 :
Many writers seem to be gifted in writing certain genres but, from what I've seen, Norma Budden seems to excel in the subjects she tackles. Whether she's writing a short story romance, a novel length suspense/thriller or a blog post, Norma is able to engage me no matter her subject.
I haven't typically left reviews after reading books but, since discovering Norma's books, I feel compelled to write a few words each time and have since reviewed a few other authors as well.
"Abduction" drew me into the story from the get go. There was no time to catch my breath before seeing a little girl who had been kidnapped earlier that day.
I felt like I was Tina - that I was the one making the decisions. Would I have reacted as she did? I don't know but I also don't know, given such little time, how I could have done anything else. I guess it's something I'll need to think about.
As I've come to expect from Norma, the writing was solid and I definitely wondered what would happen. I couldn't wait until I finished the story to see whether Tina succeeded in rescuing the little girl.
Norma's writing at the back of the book also touched me. Unlike most authors, she opens up about personal things most people would never share. It endears me to her because, from her words, I can sense her honesty.
Norma Budden is an author whom I will follow as long as God grants me breath. Just keep the books and stories coming, Norma, because I'm always anxious to read anything you write.
