Smashwords book reviews by Cindy Holdmann

  • Arrival of the Traveler on March 11, 2013

    I found this book to be a not-so-easy read. Too many characters to try and keep up with. Along with that, the plot didn't develop as quickly as I had hoped and it became an arduous read. While some of the characters were interesting, I would have liked to have seen more depth. It also seemed that some of the things in the book, reminded me of the Harry Potter series but not necessarily in a good way.
  • Dirge on March 30, 2013

    This is a story of a man that enters the netherworld after an unfulfilling life. All he is searching for is somebody he can whole-heartedly love. Along the way, he meets with a series of trials, tribulations and difficult challenges. Many are set in his path to deceive him but, will they succeed? Just when you think the book is finished, it's not over yet. Will he find his soulmate? If he does, what will become of them. Read it and you will find out. The story line flows smoothly and the characters are so believable, they may even remind you of someone you already know. Kudos to the author.

  • Nothing Ventured on April 20, 2013

    This book was such a great read. I'm not usually a romance reader but this was so well done I couldn't put it down. The plot was extremely interesting and the characters had so much depth that you felt you knew them. I enjoyed how the author put some conflict in and really loved the two main characters as well as the others. It flowed smoothly, although things were repeated at times but only when necessary. Loved the epilogue as well. A very good read.
  • A Song After Dark on May 06, 2013

    This was an excellent dark thriller. It pulled me in from the beginning and the characters were so well developed. I like the fact that he did it bit by bit. Although it was a bit predictable, it was written very smoothly and fluently. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes good vs. evil books.
  • The MacLosers on May 07, 2013

    I received this book for an honest review. It is a short story about a man who inherits a castle and town in Scotland. When he moves his family there with the intent of refurbishing it and selling it, others claim ownership. It is supposed to be humorous and at times it was but I found the writing rushed, flat, and the characters unmemorable.
  • Down at the End of the River on May 30, 2013

    It was a nice group of short stories but at times it seemed as if different authors were writing them. Kudos to the author on being able to change his style.
  • Dirty Little Angels on June 02, 2013

    I agree that this book had no resolution, was almost completely depressing and the characters had little or no development. It kept shuffling back and forth as the story line had no fluency about it. I did receive a copy of the story for my honest review, and honestly, I would not recommend this to anyone.
  • Little Red Riding Hood and the Secret Cookie Recipe: A Gabby Grimm Fairy Tale Mystery #3 on June 07, 2013

    As someone who hasn't read her first 2 Gabby Grimm novels, I was pleasantly surprised that there was still some information in this one that really helped it move along from the others. It was funny, action packed, had great character development and just an overall great read. You really felt as if you were part of the book!
  • The Waiting Room on July 17, 2013

    This is an excellent collection of stories about the paranormal. The authors writing keeps you entranced as you live through the characters on their chilling paranormal experiences. Great writing and character development!
