Smashwords book reviews by Karen Watkins

Very enjoyable short story with plenty of atmosphere. Shades of Jane Eyre. A good escapist story that you can loose yourself in.
- A Fine Woman
on April 17, 2012
I very much enjoyed reading this historical novella about a well-connected German countess who risks her life to save jews from the holocaust. It is told over two time lines - the first narrator is an american soldier who has fallen in love with the countess, and takes place a few years after the events; the second time line occurs during World War II. The story is exciting and gripping, with likeable believable characters. At times I was on the edge of my seat reading this.
- Voodoo Deadly (Amber Fox Mystery No 3)
on Oct. 11, 2012
This is the third novel in the Amber Fox series and I think that this is the best one so far. I have enjoyed reading the others, The Fashion Police (Amber Fox Mystery No 1) and Be Careful What You Wish For (Amber Fox Mystery No 2) but feel that each book has improved as the series progressed until this one, which is her best yet. We have come to know and care about the central characters, I especially like the chemistry between Amber and Brad; and there is plenty of comedy provided by Tia and Amber's dad. I thought that this is her best in the series so far because the story is more gripping and focussed than the earlier stories with an exciting plot. It was hard to put this book down and I read it in one day!
- Lance's Travels - Does Cornwall
on Oct. 12, 2012
I downloaded this because I live in Cornwall, so was interested to find out more about my area. I found this book to be very interesting and informative. Some things I knew already, but lots was new to me. I very much enjoyed reading this and learning more about places that I have visited. There are a few photographs included too.
