Smashwords book reviews by Amy Siggelow
- Dirty Little Angels
on Feb. 16, 2011
I won this book as an ARC from Library Thing.
I really enjoyed this book. I was "warned" by the author that it is pretty dark, and it surely was, but it was so very good! It was a book that I didn't want to put down.
This story is about a 16 year old girl, her 19 year old brother and their parents. The mother had just had a miscarriage and has holed herself up in her room and isn't paying attention to either one of her kids, while the father, recently unemployed, drinks too much and is down at the local pool hall most of every day. This is a story set in New Orleans, a place I've never been. There are many references to different areas and/or street names. The 16 year old girl, Hailey, is in turmoil throughout the book, for many reasons that are explained while reading. A great story of family dynamics, mistrust and the importance of being supportive of family.
I very much recommend this book for anyone to read, as it has all the elements of a great storyline....adventure, mystery, betrayal, religion, love, etc. Great book Mr. Tusa!
- Encounters in Paris - A Collection of Short Stories
on March 12, 2011
I have never read a collection of short stories incorporated into a book before, so this was a new experience for me. I found this book very interesting, I was able to really connect with the characters in a very short time and I loved the fact that it presented issues such as infidelity and betrayal and things that are present in today's society. I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Moncel's works and I will be recommending this story to friends.
- Just Another Day in Paradise

I won this book from Member Giveaways on LibraryThing.
I just finished reading this book of short stories and had to post this right away! What a great read! The stories are "dark" stories, but very interesting. I'm really not sure how to review this book, as the stories are short and about different things. I noticed that most of the stories tend to revolve around "karma", as in people getting away with things, but then bad luck or death follows them later. My favorite story was the very last story (appropriately placed in my opinion!). It was about a Lady and a stray cat named Otto, which the Lady (as she was called in the story) found while the cat was being bullied by a group of kids. I don't want to ruin the story by describing what the story was about, but the ending gave me goosebumps. Those are the types of stories that I love!
This is a great book for those who don't mind dark (but not too dark) subject material. I would say it is appropriate for adults and maybe older teens. I do recommend it to those who want to try it - you won't be sorry!
- Divine Intervention
on July 21, 2011
I won this book from the Member Giveaways on Library Thing.
I really enjoyed this book. It is about the Canadian FBI special team of psychic-type agents trying to solve a serial arsonist case. The team consists of Jasmine (Jasi) McClellan, Ben Roberts, and Natassia Prushenko. The three of them work for a man named Matthew Divine, who founded and is in charge of their specialized unit. They join forces with the Chief Arson investigator, Brandon, and begin trying to solve the case.
This was a very good book that I recommend to those who like a bit of psychic subject material. To those who don't, this probably isn't the book for you. It was a fascinating read and made me wonder if quite possibly, there are actual units in the government who do this sort of thing. The author made the reading very believable and interesting. Nice book!
- A Black Deeper Than Death (Miki Radicci Book 1)
on June 11, 2012
This was such a great book. More of a YA novel, but as a middle-aged woman, I still really enjoyed it! Great plot, great characters, action, suspense and a bit of fantasy are all part of this book. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!
- Elusive (Book #1 in the On The Run Series)
on Feb. 12, 2013
I won this book from LibraryThing's Member Giveaways.
I really enjoyed this book. It was full of action and mystery and really caught my attention. It is one of those books you don't want to put down. I like that it was partially taking place in another country. I was fully immersed in this book! One issue that I had, which has also happened in other books I've read, is that, when reading it in Kindle, as I would turn the page, there would be some text missing. In some cases, it seemed like it was only a few words, but in other cases it seemed like it was a whole paragraph or more. It's most likely a Kindle issue, but I'm not sure. All in all, however, this was a great book and I look forward to reading more from this author.
