Smashwords book reviews by Collette Scott

  • A Price Worth Paying on May 31, 2011
    (no rating)
    A nicely written tale of loss and tragedy. The author did a beautiful job of portraying the conflicting emotions of a couple deeply in love but struggling with almost insurmountable problems.
  • Alison on July 14, 2011

    I downloaded this book last week and stayed up late to finish it. I love a book that really hits you emotionally, and Ms. Smythe really did that. It's a short, quick read, but to develop the characters and their relationship that well requires great skill. I was very impressed.
  • A Price Worth Paying on July 25, 2011

    I wrote a review on this book back on May 31t (see below), and I just realized that my star rating didn't go through... oops! I apologize for putting in a second comment, but at the same time I felt it important to put the stars in there to validate my previous thoughts.
  • Ties That Bind on Oct. 19, 2011

    From the first page to the very last, you will be on your toes. For someone not too familiar with the workings of a police homicide investigation, this story will give you a whole new perspective on what goes on in the real world. No easy answers, not always a direct lead, oftentimes our police officials must sift through numerous lies and misleading information in what many of us would not have the patience to tackle. Ties that Bind tells a story in a methodically paced tale that you will find hard to put down, turning page after page as you wait breathlessly for the next twist. It is realistic yet entertaining, an honest look at human nature and individuals from all walks of life. Nothing is as it seems... Carolyn Arnold has written a nitty gritty story of a murderer’s revenge. Through the various twists and turns, you will never be able to figure out whodunit until the shocking end. I’ve always considered myself fairly good at picking out the villain, but I will tell you I was surprised at the ‘ties’ that led up to an arrest. Way to go, Carolyn! A well-written piece with all-too-human characters, I was sucked in from the first page when Madison reached for her chocolate-fix. This was a nicely paced story that was not over the top or unrealistic; in fact, I loved every minute of it. It was entertaining without being too dark or depressing, and I can’t wait to read more, Carolyn. Keep them coming!
  • Fall Leaves and the Black Dragon on Dec. 03, 2011

    In the vein of Stephen King’s Stand by Me, Erik Gustafson tells a coming of age tale that is sure to tug on your heart strings as it's sending a chill down your spine. When little Willy was six-years-old, he was caught in a fire with his friend and neighbor while playing with matches. That was the first time he had a vision. From that moment on, Willy’s life was never the same. As he grows, he is tortured by visions both during the day and at night. He has nowhere to turn and no one to help him understand. He does have support, though, in his best friend Kenny. Oh, what a loyal friend he was! Together, the two boys decide to try to put an end to the haunting once and for all. They take a road trip that ends with such a dramatic climax that you are sure to be stunned, frightened, and a bit on edge. A beautiful tale, one that made me pity poor Willy, especially when he tried to explain to his parents. There was just the right amount of suspense to turn the pages, enough tension to keep you on the edge of your seat, and just enough creepiness in there that you will never look at toy soldiers the same way again. Definitely a worthwhile read!
  • Monica on Jan. 04, 2012

    In this second installment, Monica is a woman torn. Facing the desire for one man and the love of another, she is lost and confused. To add to the mix, she must face both men on a daily basis. During this inner turmoil she faces several life changing incidents that threaten to throw her over the edge. Instead, Monica fights back. She finds the strength to keep going and make the right decisions and learn from her mistakes. A far cry from the selfish and manipulative wife of Troy, this Monica is a woman learning that her past actions do come with a price - at times very high. Monica is the second in a series. It's a well-written tale of a woman's growth, almost a coming of age. All the characters in this series are very realistic and honest, and the pace of the novel is fast enough to keep you turning page after page. Monica is a tough and independent character with a big heart and sassy demeanor that you can't help but like this time around. As she comes to terms with her losses, some heartwrenching, you feel her inner turmoil and sadness, and there is also the regret that makes you want to shake some sense into her. But through it all, Monica's charm is that she does realize what is the most important and wise thing to do, and she accepts these life-changing decisions with a mixture of graciousness and appreciation that warms you to the end. Mr. Tripp continues to grow with this interesting storyline, and I'm really looking forward to the next installment!
  • What Every Married Woman Needs on April 01, 2012

    A beautifully-written work of heartfelt and genuine advice for both men and women, in my opinion, to apply to their relationships. For one individual to pour as much emotion as he has into this lovely and poetic piece, it comes as little surprise that he has enjoyed over 35 years of marital bliss. This should be required reading for all married couples. All too often we take those closest to us for granted, and Mr. Caresser is very quick to point out the errors of doing that as well as offering tips on what has worked for him. I know I will be sharing this with my entire family.
