Smashwords book reviews by Staccato Publishing

  • In It To Win It on Nov. 22, 2011

    Kearns is a romantic and she knows her readers as well as what they want. This romance is one that pulls readers along through some unexpected twists and turns before she lets them go. If you like sweet romances, this one is a must.
  • Catch on Jan. 13, 2012
    (no rating)
    This was a fast read, hard to put down for fear something would happen while I was away. Enjoyed the characters and plot scenarios. Highly recommend this book to fans of Patterson and the like. Definitely mainstream despite the element of sci fi.
  • Missing Mandy on May 25, 2012

    This was very short so felt a little hurried. Cute story but could have used some editing (I am sensitive to that as an editor though. Some people might not notice so much).
  • Fearless on Jan. 06, 2013

    I really liked this story. How inventive and well executed! Her style is quick and very readable without sacrificing detail. I'm watching for more from her.
