Smashwords book reviews by Laurel Taylor

  • Sentence of Marriage (Promises to Keep: Book 1) on July 19, 2011

    Hard to believe this book gets 5 stars from almost everyone. About 1/3 of the book appears to be about rape. A vulnerable girl taken advantage of. This probably does have something to do with the plot, but I don't believe detailed, page-after-page descriptions are necessary. I probably should have read one of the other books first. This does give me a negative reason for e-books, tho. At least with a paper book it would be easier to skip past the multiple and unnecessary rape details.
  • Murder at Bear Ranch on Feb. 19, 2014

    Well written, interesting, an excellent read. So glad I found this author. I couldn't decide between 4 and 5 stars, but my only problem with the book is the lack of proofreading. Poor punctuation and lots of inappropriate spell-checking (for instance, columbine instead of combine) do interrupt the flow. Nonetheless, it was a very enjoyable read and the author earned at least 5 stars. Style, characterization, plot. ... All great. Thank you for your work. I hope you are writing another. Please let me proof it for you. ;)
  • Flash Gold on March 13, 2014

    What a rare, amazing, and thorough delight. Excellent story, we'll written and perfectly edited.
  • Hunted (The Flash Gold Chronicles, #2) on March 17, 2014

    Where are the rest of the flash gold books? My cash is burning a hole in my hand wanting to buy.
  • Death at Lampier on March 18, 2014

    Well written, good stories. Awkward editing doesn't interrupt reading so fat add to actually lose a star. I keep looking for the next book.
