Smashwords book reviews by Kim Stapf

  • The Beginning (Whispering Pines Book 1) on Sep. 13, 2012

    The author wants an honest review, so here goes. The story itself is good. Mind you this is the authors first book. He has written many more after this one. Kim Stapfs review of The Beginning. I found many editing mistakes throughout the book, the chapters were long to the point I had to go back and reread some to understand what was going on. Some sentences were missing words. There were a lot of characters, sometimes I had to go back to see how they tied into the story. The story is about the Veil brothers Chuck and Matt. Chuck hasn't heard from his brother in days, this isn't normal as chuck always hears from his brother. He calls his brothers house and Matt doesn't answer and chuck starts to worry when he doesn't hear back from him. He calls the lumber company that Matt and chuck own and they say Matt took some time off. This doesn't sit well with Chuck because Matt always lets him know what's happening in his life. Chuck decides he has to go to Goergia and see whats happening but he doesn't want to go alone so he asks Gail, a lady who works wih chuck at the paper where chuck is a journalist to go with him. Little does chuck know that Gail got a nickel in change from a pizza delivery man, when she touches it she see things. She can't make heads or tails of what she sees. On the way there Chuck explains more of what he expects happened to Matt, and Gail realizes her visions are about Matt and his family. There is so much more to the story. You have to download the book for more. It's well worth the download. Even thou I found some problems , the story itself is well worth the read, thats why four stars. I wouldn't hesitate to read more from this author. This is a series of books , so check out all of Charles books . Thank you for reading my review.

    Nov 24, 12 · edit bookshelves: done-reading, favorites Read on November 24, 2012 Kim Stapfs review This book is about this authors life. He opens his heart through beautiful, sad words written with pure soul. You feel for the little boy who's fears he shares with us all. You must admire the man who he has become today.

I would have given more than five stars...

    This book blew me away. It had every inch of my attention when reading it. This author bares her soul, the good, bad, worst times in her life. She writes about tender memories about her children and the pain of how they came into the world. She writes about being a woman, marriage. My emotions were raw with this read. Only a great author can bring that out in a reader. Every book I read from this author gets better. Her poetry( you get a taste of that in this book) rocks my world, and now so does her stories. You must check her books out!

He has a room full of coins passed down by family members for generations. He just wants to walk past a coin without picking it up. Download this free story and find out if the curse can be broken.

  • Love is a Promise Kept on March 09, 2013

    I adored this book. It's nice to think there could be a Gregory in this world. Greg gets lost in the forest after not listening to his father to wait for him and they would explore the woods together. He's 12 years old and thought he'd be ok. Greg realizes he's lost, he's hungry getting tired and losing daylight. He thinks he hears something, but shrugs it off as animals or something. He hears what he thinks is a little kid crying, he looks around and follows the sound and there right before his eyes is a little girl, no more than 4 or 5 years old. As scared as he was he knew he had to be brave. He walked up to the little girl and asked he name, she told him Mary Elizabeth. She threw herself at him and almost knocked him over. Mary Elizabeth told him how she got lost. He promised her he would get her home. Mary Elizabeth told him her daddy says never break a promise and Greg told her he would never break his promise. He found his way to a road where a forest ranger noticed them and brought them back to headquarters and called their parents who were dying to find their children. His dad walked in first and as happy he was to find his son he made sure Greg stayed Mary Elizabeth's hero. Mary Elizabeth's parents came in next, when they were ready to leave she ran over to give Gregg a big hug and had him promise to marry her when they get older. Remember Gregg told Mary Elizabeth he would never break a promise to her, with that at the back of his mind he promised her he would wait for her. Gregory does exactly that. As they grew up they both remember their promise even thou their parents and friends try to tell them there are no fairytales endings in life. I have told enough, download this book and see if fairytales like this can happen for Gregory and Mary Elizabeth. There is so much more to this book, romance , intrigue, family, love. Thank you for sharing your skills with us Regina. I totally recommend this book and all her others, there's to many to mention.
  • A Foreigner in London on March 28, 2013

    This short tells of how lonely one can be in a different country. This author tells of a lonely woman and her feelings trying to fit in in London. It's well written but sad. I think everyone feels lonely at some time in their life. Smashwords is where you can download this book. Thank you for sharing Cinta.
  • Mom’s on the Roof and I Can’t Get Her Down on April 26, 2013

    The raw emotion Cynthia must have endured while writing this pulls at your heart! You will need tissues. She writes about what her family and friends went through during her mothers battle with cancer. It's inspirational, loving, sad. I didnt want to put it down. I applaud Cynthia, she's one strong author, woman, mother, daughter, sister, friend, wife. That's what she was through this whole story. AMAZING!
  • Dark Spaces on May 02, 2013

    This book has nine short stories and flash fiction that keeps you on the edge of your seat through out each story. The characters personality shines through. This is the perfect book for those who enjoy a little scare after dark. Personally I think it's the best time to read this book. A little thriller of a book. In some stories decisions have to be made of life and death. To find out if the right ones were made download this well written little gem to find out, I dare you! Mawh!! Thank you for sharing Dionne. I've read Dionne's books and will continue reading her books.
  • Breakfast In Bed on June 23, 2013

    What a great way to wake. I've read Robs poetry, he's real about what he writes. His erotic short is no different, tasteful writing about a husband and wife loving their mornings together. Sweet!
  • Works Out on Aug. 23, 2013

    Two friends meeting for coffee talking about working experiences through life. The boys who won't let a woman get ahead in a mans world of technology. The woman who gives them a run for their jobs. You need someone in life like these two friends. They share their wins and losses of life and life's traveled roads. Nice read and very well edited. Great read for anyone.
  • The Knot on Aug. 23, 2013

    I won this book, no review was asked of me: In this book we go through life’s ups and downs with two friends sharing stories of life with each other, from marriage, children and friends. It’s silly at times, spiritual and sad. We hear of proposals of marriage and secrets from women about their marriages. There’s death and healing through memories shared. The caring of parents and the happiness of their children. One of my favorites is of the husband videoing his children’s marriage proposals no matter where or when they are, funny! Download this book and read all about it.
  • Home-A Charles "The Solver" Splints Case on March 28, 2014

    I was in the mood for a fun read, this fit he bill perfectly. Charles knows their after him, his client gave him away, he went to the warehouse to see this monster the client wanted taken out. Things go wrong, his client is shot, he goes to a bar and just waits knowing their coming. He meets Ms. Right and all heck breaks loose when they walk through the door. Short read, lots of action.
  • Devil - a Charles "The Solver" Splints case on March 28, 2014

    This is the second Splints case I've read, both in a row. The first one was such a kickass story I had to find out more about Charles Splint. This book is longer than the other, just as action packed as the first. A green eyed beauty walks into his office and asked him to get rid of the most notorious devil in town. He knows he's in for the fight of his life, but who's he to turn down a beautiful lady. Grab your copy, find out if Charles can take the devil out of commission. Both books well worth your time, he's kick butt and a funny wise guy.
  • Words on April 09, 2014
