Smashwords book reviews by Angela J. Maher

  • A Sudden Crush (A Romantic Comedy) on July 02, 2016

    A nice, light-hearted romance, even when dealing with some heavy topics. Kept me interested the whole way through.
  • The PI's Tale - by Paul Kane (2.5) on Sep. 10, 2016

    This is a good little story. Reminiscent of old-time detective stories, and with an ending I did not see coming. Plenty of hints as to what else is going on in Refuge too.
  • Falquen's Nest on Sep. 25, 2016

    I loved this. Great characters with very real reactions to each other. The right ratio of sweet and romantic and sexy and conflicted. As I reached the end of each chapter, I just wanted to keep reading. I'll definitely be reading more by this author.
