Smashwords book reviews by Betty Addams

  • First Dance on Nov. 30, 2012

    I loved this book. Loved the characters. Loved their relationship. Loved the way it way written (both their points of view). I would highly recommend this book. And the next book is just as fabulous!
  • Trouble on Dec. 28, 2013

    I really enjoyed this story. My opinion of this author is that they are very talented, I was hooked right away and loved the main characters. I thought the author did a really good job of adding secondary characters (family and friends) that helped you get to know the main characters better. I thought that the plot showed a lot of creativity by the author. I liked the story so much that before I even finished I looked up the author to try to find more of their work. I was very surprised to see a review by someone who only gave the book 2 stars. I think maybe the other reviewer was expecting a different kind of story. I personally found that the characters seemed realistic to me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and different people like different kinds of books. I don't want to give away spoilers and ruin the book for someone else. I would definitely recommend this book, but warn that if you are very religious, you might be offended by some parts -there are definitely "sex scenes" and it is definitely an adult book, but i found lots of heart-warming parts too. I will look for other work by this author. I would give this book 4.85 out of 5 so I will round by score up to 5.0 :-)
  • Blue Collar Lust: The Bartender on Jan. 02, 2015

    i really liked this book. i like some romance with my erotica and this one delivered. A fun short read.
  • West For Love (A Mail Order Romance Novel) (1) (Anna & Thomas) on Feb. 09, 2015

    This was a really beautiful story and one I will read again. My favourite romance category is contemporary so don't let the historical/western part scare you off. A good book is a good book. The author is very talented at giving you a full picture of the characters. They seem very real and believable and you are really hoping everything works out for them.
  • The Rozar Park Mystery on March 11, 2016

    Really like this author. His writing style makes you want to keep reading. Like a friend telling you an interesting, true story over coffee. His characters are very likeable and it's easy to get invested in their story. A very good mystery. I look forward to the next book (Squadron Inn Mystery).
  • The Squadron Inn Mystery on March 11, 2016

    The second book in the series. I enjoyed it as much as the first. We are given more hints about Chris' past. I really give this author credit - I am personally very different than the characters in these books - yet I really like the stories and want to keep reading them. Looking forward to #3 (Ox Bow Island Adventure). I think it's best to read them in order.
  • The Ox-bow Island Adventure on March 11, 2016

    Two more thumbs up from me. I think I know what Chris did in his former career, but not why he is in his current situation. There is mention of 2 more possible mysteries: "counterfeit insurance checks" and "missing construction worker from hospital". I hope they will really be books in the series. I've read all 3 books so far and would love to read more.
  • The Mystery of the First to Find Society on Nov. 15, 2019

    I really enjoyed reading all of the stories in this series. I sure hope there will be another one soon, I highly recommend them.
  • Making Promises on July 29, 2020

    I REALLY liked this book. The yummy cover first caught my eye and I was happy that the story is just as good. Really likeable characters - you want things to work out for them. And the author did a good job of plotting a believable story. I love romance books - much better than watching the news. This is a book that I will add to my favourites and read over and over again.
  • Shaded Light: The Case of the Tactless Trophy Wife: A Paul Manziuk and Jacquie Ryan Mystery on July 29, 2020

    This book is excellent - I highly recommend it. Like a modern day Agatha Christie. I was literally guessing until the very end. A very clever murder mystery plot. So well written, excellent character development and I love how the author continues the story for each of the characters to wrap things up. I couldn't stop reading and already want to read it again. Will definitely read more by this author.
  • Walk A Lonesome Road on Aug. 18, 2020

    I really, really enjoyed this book. I love the cover-that first caught my attention. This book is a unique, very well-written story. The kind of story that really stays with you. As another review mentioned - it's not a "light" romance. I would highly recommend it and definitely give it 5 stars. I think the author did an amazing job of creating a deep, full, love story - complete with all the dark and messy parts you would find in a non-fiction love story.
  • The Escort on Jan. 16, 2021

    I really enjoyed this story. I think the author did a really good job of turning a hard to believe story line into an easy to believe story that was very hard to put down. Very entertaining with very easy to like characters. Makes me want to read more by this author. I would definitely recommend this book.
  • He Needed Killing on Jan. 15, 2022

    Awesome book. Very talented author. I highly recommend this book to murder mystery lovers. You can read the books on their own, but I advise you to read them in order. I've read books 1-6 and give them all 5 stars. Mr. Fitts does an excellent job with characters and plot. I'm looking forward to book 7 in the series.
