Smashwords book reviews by Linda Freed

  • Vampires of the Sky on July 06, 2011

    Several things drew me to this story. First and foremost, I like historical stories and especially those from WWII. I'm happy to say that this story did not disappoint. William Suffolk is a fighter pilot with the RAF. He meets young Sophia Crawford at a pub and not-unexpectedly they fall for each other. With Germany advancing on England, the young couple abandon themselves to the moment, because in war a moment may be all that they have. Although I liked the sweet love story between the characters, I really enjoyed the air battle sequences. The author put me right in the sky, inside William's spitfire. I felt the stick in my hand and held my breath as the incoming German fighters opened fire. The author was not only able to put me in the scene, he also got me inside the character's head so I experienced the emotions of the battle - elation, fear, panic. My stomach churned and I was white-knuckling the stick with William as he tried to maintain control of his stricken airplane. I couldn't turn the page fast enough as his plane plowed into the English's countryside. I won't give away the ending. But I will say that for his first published story, Michael L. Preble has done a nice job. There were a few places that could have been cleaned up with some editing and I feel he could've started the story with the couple meeting (instead of Sophia's ocean voyage to England). But all in all this was money and time well spent. ~LAFreed
  • Hilda Hopkins, Murder, She Knit #1 on July 07, 2011

    Hilda Hopkins, Murder, She Knit By Vivienne Fagan 54 pages, appx. 20,000 words available on I knew when I read the title that I'd like this book, if the author could write. And I'm glad to report that Ms. Fagan can indeed spin a good yarn. Hilda Hopkins is a wonderfully eccentric character. She's a dowdy old woman and she knows it. She's often ignored, and feeling slighted she creates this persona in her own mind that she is simply better than everyone else: smarter, more clever, resourceful. When she rents her spare room to a gentleman border and he dies of natural causes in his bed, she sees it as an opportunity. She rifles through his wallet, finds his pin numbers to his credit cards and instantly has extra cash flow. She buries her border in her coal shed and soon after rents the room to another elderly man. When he doesn't die according to her timetable, she knits a garroute and slips him some Valerian to knock him out. Then she throttles the life out of him and drags his corpse out to be buried. She continues on her murder spree, killing six gentlemen and after each death she knits their effigy and places these about her house. But she is discovered. The police question her, in her home, as they search and find clues to the missing men. Meanwhile, Hilda slips into the bathroom and out the window. What happens next is a run from the police, and she's very successful at it. But her passion for knitting is her downfall, literally, as her crime spree unravels. This short novel was an exceptionally fun read. Ms. Fagan creates characters that are quirky and memorable. The book probably is not for everyone, but if you like a quick mystery this is definitely worth your time. Linda Freed
