Smashwords book reviews by toni linenberger

  • Murder at Midnight on a Sailboat on Feb. 03, 2012

    This is a good book. There’s a story and a resolution and change: all those nifty things you look for in a good book. However, if you are going into it looking for romance and comedy and mystery, you’re not really going to get it. What this is is a good story with great characters. The description is accurate there are an odd set of vacationers in this book. They are all well-developed and fun to read. This is the vacation no one wants to have. In a way it is like a train wreck: you just can’t look away. There are some truly funny moments as Norman and Kathy try to navigate the disaster of a honeymoon and the start of their new life together. It is the story of growth and change and melding two lives and two families together. With a devious urchin thrown in for excitement. Norman and Kathy don’t always get what they want. But then again, who does? Frank usually writes science fiction / young adult. This is a foray into something new and different. The chance to see an author explore something new to them is what makes this book so interesting.
