Smashwords book reviews by Joanne

  • The Cinderella Plan on Jan. 21, 2011

    A very romantic and fun read.
  • Fourteen Days Later on Aug. 24, 2011

    I loved it! It made me laugh out loud a number of times. It is well written and enjoyable from start to finish. This is the first Sibel Hodge book I have read, but it certainly won't be the last!
  • My Perfect Wedding on Aug. 31, 2011

    An over-the-top screwball romantic comedy which I found hilarious. It starts six months after 'Fourteen Days Later' finished and involves all the main characters, which I love. Once I picked the book up and started reading I couldn't put it down until I had finished it. I am sad to leave Helen, Kalem, Charles and the family behind and would love to read about them again. I really enjoyed the description of Cyprus and could picture it clearly, now where is my suitcase!
  • Desperate Measures (A Regency Short Story) on Sep. 19, 2011

    As stated this is a short story. Quite often I find short stories lacking in content but I did really enjoy this one. It is a lovely romance to read when you are short of time.
  • The Baby Trap on Jan. 10, 2012

    Warning: don't drink while reading; thank goodness eReaders have glass screens so are easy to clean after spitting coffee on them. 'The Baby Trap' is an emotional rollercoaster: one minute I was laughing out loud, and the next I had tears rolling down my face. Sibel Hodge handles the difficult subject of infertility with the humour that I associate with her, but also a great deal of sensitivity. I read into the early hours as I couldn't put it down until the very end. I highly recommend this book.
  • Chocolate, Lies, and Murder (Amber Fox Mysteries Book #4) on Oct. 25, 2013

    Another hit by Sibel Hodge! 'Chocolate, Lies, and Murder' is the fourth book in the Amber Fox Mystery series. I really love these books and how they are filled with laugh out loud moments (note to self: remember not to eat or drink while reading). Amber is a strong character, as are the other wonderful and loveable support characters. This series is similar to the Stephanie Plum stories (but based in the UK) so fans of her exploits may also enjoy these. I prefer the Amber Fox books though, as she is smarter and doesn't do the eye-rollingly stupid things that I tend to find annoying. This story had me hooked from the start and lifted my mood completely. 'Chocolate, Lies, and Murder' can be read as a standalone, but I suggest reading the series in order – the storyline continues and develops through all the books with a new mystery in each. Highly recommended.
