  • A Vampire in the Vatican 'Brotherhood of the Sword' on Nov. 02, 2013

    This book was recommended to me by a friend. I don't normally read books about vampires but she was so insistant. I'm glad I read this one. Great story. Sad. Funny. Very believable. The unexpected is always happening and this book MAKES SENSE. The clues are there and I actually went back a few times to make sure things weren't happening that hadn't been mentioned. An excellent read and a great story.
  • Patch Pirates Princess on Nov. 05, 2013

    What a great story. I've downloaded this for my grandaughter to read on the weekend. She's going to love it like I did. Highly recommended.
  • Patch Pirates Ketchup on Nov. 05, 2013

    Another delightful story from this author. My grandaughter is going to have so much to read. I don't think page numbers really mattered, it didn't take away from the story. I guess ebook readers are spoilt. I enjoyed it. Highly recommended.
  • A Buddhist Monk Story on Dec. 17, 2013

    I enjoyed this very much. It is well written and simply explained. RECOMMENDED.
  • That Moment... on Jan. 06, 2014

    What wonderful experiences the author has had and been lucky enough for others to have passed on their stories so they could be documented. I had an incredible experience a few years ago which made me believe in a guardian angel. I was visiting my son in Australia when there was an unbelieveable flood. I was driving back to his home alone in the dark. The rain was horrific and I could barely see. I went down a small hill onto a bridge where the water came to the top of the bonnet and my car stopped and the headlights went out. I resigned myself to the fact I was dead when the headlights came back on (they were underwater) my car had been spun sideways but I excelerated and drove off the bridge and reached his home. When I returned to New Zealand and some time had passed my son phoned me. He said parts of the engine had rusted and showed where the water had been. He said there was no way the car could have ran with water that high. I hope to read more from this talented author. God speed.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 1 on Jan. 09, 2014

    This is wonderful to have it all in one book. Thank you to the author for leaving all the covers for each part in the book.
  • Pulchritudinous Book 2 on July 14, 2014

    Book 2 has been very exciting. My granddaughter loved it as she is quite sweet on Puck. I found it a wonderful read and the pictures are just getting better, especially the last one. Lepus makes a few appearances which always delights my granddaughter. A few more lessons and a wonderful adventure. Another recommended read to this innocent story. Looking forward to book 3.
  • Nun with a Gun on Feb. 17, 2015

    I have to admit never had an interest in vampire stories but after reading A Vampire in the Vatican I had to read this. I agree with Trevor when he said the vampire scene is funny and serious. I assume he's referring to the scene in the castle. There is a lot going on in this book and I can understand why the inspector seems to be cruel to some people but he has an important job to do. When I saw the photo near the end and read the following lines my eyes filled with tears. I'm not usually that kind of person but it was so sad and very touching. I don't want to tell the story here as it would spoil the impact for other readers, I do believe this story comes with a great deal of impact. This is another wonderful story from my favourite author and I look forward to the next in this series.
  • Beware.....The Moon is Full on April 16, 2015

    I admit this did make my heart rate increase while I was reading, maybe because I'm an older woman and I'm not use to reading horror. Totally different from any other work by Linda. It surprised me. I must have enjoyed it because I read it twice. :)
  • A Reckless Moon on April 20, 2015

    After reading the authors note I do feel for authors. Not a writer myself I'd never thought about what happens to them. About the story: I feel so sorry for this man but I probably shouldn't, he's a vampire. It's actually a gentle story. I did enjoy it.
  • The Weekends of Sally Virtue. May & June on May 26, 2015

    Sally gets into all sorts of trouble and it's not just on weekends. She can't even come home on the school bus without something happening. Church is something else. A morning learning to play golf with her dad made me laugh so much and the murderer living next door. Another of Linda's stories that made me laugh from start to finish. Very funny.
  • Ruck Nor on May 28, 2015

    I'm not really into sci-fi but I thought I'd read this little story. I'm glad I read it. Craig West gets curious about the sounds in an old foundry on his way home. That started something that he didn't expect. A most enjoyable read.
  • Ruck Nor 2 on May 28, 2015

    Oh this poor man, what he has gone through but it sounds like he will handle his situation quite well. This is turning out to be a great science fiction story. I enjoyed this quick read and look forward to more.
  • Ruck Nor 3 on May 28, 2015

    I'm glad to see Craig is settling in nicely. The caves sound fascinating and I look forward to seeing where all this will take him. It seems I'm now a fan of science fiction. :)
  • The Aesinas Codex on July 18, 2015

    What a fabulous continuation of this series. I feel sorry for Inspector Martinelli with everything he has to go through. Again Linda has put in some very funny lines. I liked it when the Inspector got Wilhelm half drunk. Very funny. On a serious note, the Inspector has to find this Aesinas Codex so that they can find these horrible vampires. They finally find out their location and then go after them. It gets quite serious for awhile there. Simply written and that's why I think Linda can fit so much story in so few words. I love this series and I really like the inspector. It seems he's getting quite trim with his weight loss and is starting to sound quite appealing. haha. Another great story and I hope there will be more. I want to know what happens with Sofia Graeco too.
  • Tears from the Past on Sep. 13, 2017

    It was tough in the 1800s, and Linda has taken us on a journey through the eyes of a young man called John Pitt. It starts and finishes in England, but a lot of time is spent in Australia. It wasn't what I expected, and I really enjoyed it. There are a few twists through the story but the end surprised me as I didn't see it coming. Great story. I loved it.
