Smashwords book reviews by Patricia Puddle

  • The best laid plans: journeying around Western Canada on July 07, 2011

    I would love to visit Canada one day, so I bought this travel book. Plus the title and cover grabbed my attention. I was so glad I did because this story is much more than a travel log or diary, it's full of humour and extremely well written. The chapter about Grizzly bears was wonderful and I loved reading about this couple's ups and downs throughout their travels. Well worth the money. I recommend it to anyone travelling to Canada or anywhere else in the world. The humour will keep you laughing right to the very end and there are so many links to check out all through the book. Good value.
  • Beelzebub Girl (Ancient Legends Book 2) on July 15, 2011

    I read the first book in this series and wanted to read more, plus the cover of this book really caught my attention. I’m so glad that I bought it because I absolutely love it. I loved Cassandra in the first series so couldn't wait to read this one. I love that she's the daughter of the Devil and her home is Hell. Wonderful. She has to break a curse in order to escape. It’s sort of a Star-Crossed lovers as she falls in love with a mortal. Cass is a cunning little fox and quite hilarious, though very naughty. I love the tiny devil that sits on her shoulder annoying her. I enjoyed the first book and this one is just as good. Loved the surprise ending too. The story is fast paced and has you on the edge of your seat. Fantastic. Can’t wait till the next one. Jayde Scott is a fantastic author.
  • I see... Savannah — Your Baby, Binoculars, and African Animals on Aug. 23, 2011

    What a great idea for a children's book. I have pre-school grandchildren and they loved this book. They especially liked the different body parts of the animals popping and out. what a great way for the little ones to learn. I have my grandkids with me today and they giggled with delight when I read it to them. Wonderful illustrations. I recommend this book for pre-school children and their parents and grandparents.
  • Dead And Beyond (Ancient Legends Book 4) on March 11, 2012

    What a fantastic story. If you're into Vampire thrillers with a touch of steamy romance, this book is for you. Amber Reed, a so-called psychic with the ability to communicate with dead humans as well as supernatural beings, is highly sought after in the paranormal world. When her best friend called Angel disappears, a Shadow turns up at Amber's door, asking for help to solve the mystery. Amber's confused because she's a newly turned vampire, plagued by visions she doesn’t understand and burdened with an uncontrollable craving for blood. Plus she’s worried that her boyfriend, Aidan, is not what he appears to be. To figure out what’s going on, she turns to her boyfriend’s archenemy, Devon, hoping he can help her to understand what’s happening to her mind and body. To add more confusion, Amber’s home seems to be haunted by something evil, but as she tries to escape the insanity of it all, she’s lured in by Devon’s charm. Though she tries to resists his flirtations, it proves harder than anticipated. Amber’s heart sinks with despair when she finds proof that her boyfriend, Aidan, has indeed kept a terrible secret from her, one that could risk her life as well as their relationship and future together. Now, she wonders if there is still a future with her soul mate, after all, it now seems that she’s the root of all their problems. A well written book filled with mystery, suspense and steamy romance. Though Amber's strong, she’s also a bit of a klutz, which is a hilarious combination and I found her quite endearing. The twists and turns kept coming and had me on the edge of my seat. A great read and I highly recommend it.
  • The Adventures of the Frog Prince on July 09, 2012

    Hilarious fairy-tail where a prince is turned in to a frog by some unknown person after he was meant to chose a bride. This story is well written and full of humour as the frog sets off to find out who turned him into a frog, and why. The cover gives the impression that the book is for young children, but it's probably better suited to older readers because of the large words and long sentences. Plus the lisp in the dialogue of one of the characters would be a little hard for five to seven year-olds to figure out. However, if it was read to them by someone older, they'd laugh out loud and so would the reader. This book would be perfect for kids over eight, teens, and adults who enjoy fairy-tails. I enjoyed reading it and liked how the author threw in a few morals here and there without being obvious. There's many a twist and turn and the ending was a surprise to me. J. R. Barker has a great way with words and I look forward to reading more of her work.
  • Jasmine Lane's Enchanted Christmas on Feb. 21, 2013

    Cute Christmas story. Although the MC is sixteen, this book is suitable for younger teens too.
  • Beyond The Tiny Window: Clouds on May 26, 2013

    This is a great book about clouds and is suitable for children to read themselves, or for adults to read it to them. Lovely poetry and wonderful pictures of clouds.
  • Taken - Before her very Eyes on June 16, 2013

    An action packed story that had me on the edge of my seat. Summer Demure is normally a police woman to be reckoned with, but when she's blindfolded, attacked and raped, she suffers from post traumatic stress syndrome and loses her confidence. To make matters worse, she finds out she's pregnant and worries the baby could be the rapist's. Confused and annoyed at her husband for not being able to save her from the attack, she leaves him until she figures out whet to do. She never saw the man that raped her, but when her small daughter is kidnapped for a ransom, she suspects it's someone involved in her attack. Summer and her husband decide to give the kidnapper the money, but when her husband gets shot, she grabs her gun and takes off in her car. Desperate to rescue her child, and pay the kidnapper back for shooting her husband, Summer is also determined to find out if the criminal was involved in her own kidnapping and attack. There are many male characters in this story, so your left guessing who the perpetrator is. There's a lot of violence in this story, but I'm sure police go through events such as these every day, so to me the scenes were believable. The second half of the story picked up speed and had me reading not stop right through the night. I just had to find out who the kidnapper was. And though I guessed it was one character, I changed my mind many times towards the end. The scenes had me right in there with Summer. I felt her physical pain, and the horrific fear for her daughter's life. Though all the males in this story were strong and fiery, I particularly liked the husband. His character wasn't like your average macho male. He was different. I highly recommend this story and I look forward to reading more from Wade Faubert.
  • Jasmine Lane's Crazy Halloween on Oct. 13, 2013

    This is a great Halloween adventure book for children. Full of fun with cute illustrations. Love the characters, especially Jasmine.
  • Voices on June 21, 2014

    This is beautifully written story with spirit guides, villains, heroes, and romance. With witty and funny characters,the author keeps the reader laughing all through the book. There's never a dull moment as it speeds through twists and turns right to the fantastic surprise ending. I'll be watching out for more stories from Irene Kueh.
  • Silent Voices on June 21, 2014

    I read the first book in this series, Voices and loved it so I had to buy this one to see what happened next. This is a story about a dog whisperer who can talk to her dogs. I loved how she took them to join her team to find some kidnapped children. As an animal lover, this story pulled at my heart strings, especially with what happens to Bubba the Pit Bull, but you'll have to read it to see what happens to him. It had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. Looking forward to more in this series. .
  • One Fun Day In The Australian Bush on Aug. 19, 2014

    What a great children's book. I love all of Irene Kuer's books, so I had to buy this one for my grandchildren. They loved it. A great easy to read book for young children. The illustrations were wonderful too!
  • Juggling Shapes With Lane And Shelby on Aug. 19, 2014

    Another great Children's book by Irene Kueh. This one is an education book as well as full of beautiful coloured illustrations. And also for kids that love animals. I highly recommend this book for children. It's such a fun way for them to learn about shapes as well as animals.
  • The Angel She Loved - Prequel To Voices on Oct. 21, 2014

    I have read the two Voices series. The Angel She Loved – Prequel to Voices tells the story of how it all started. This one gives a better understanding of the chemistry between Elrenia Kitrusen and Andrew Gritt and why she went to L.A, which is In the first Voices series. This story is a sweet and clean love story. Best of all, it's FREE. So grab your copy.
  • Loving the Alien UNCUT on Feb. 25, 2015

    Unusual, sweet and sexy romance between a human and an alien. Hope there's a sequel coming.
  • Learner Driver on May 28, 2017

    This story brought back memories of when I learnt to drive. My father and my young husband both gave me driving lessons at different times, so I totally related to it. I have read many books by this author and enjoyed all of them. John M W Smith is a brilliant writer who creates such wonderful books in many different genres. I really enjoyed this story, so hopefully it will be turned into another one of his fantastic series. I rate this 5 stars!
  • Strange Times; Wacky Anecdotes on May 28, 2017

    What a Wonderful Selection of Anecdotes by John M W Smith! I have read and loved so many of this author's wonderful books and I really enjoyed this one. John M W Smith's stories are amazing and he writes from the heart. He's also witty, compassionate, and funny, and in these anecdotes you'll get a good glimpse into his brilliant mind. The first story: A Pretty Face Is All You Need. This story brought tears to my eyes. It's about people's looks and the shallowness of humans. Also the author's change in attitude from boy to man. The second story: Death Goes To School. This story is about a strict school teacher, who is despised by the teenage boys in his class because he enjoyed dishing out punishment and was never pleasant. What happened next had me on the edge of me seat, I loved this one! Plus there's a great message in it. The third story: Epiphany at a Roadside Diner. In this story, the author tells how when he begins chatting to a waitress in a warm friendly manner, she seems to trust him and begins telling him things about herself that seem quite odd. He suddenly wants to leave in a hurry without her noticing. You will have to read this quirky story to find out why. The Fourth Story, Gaby The Go Getter, is about an old school friend of the author's, who regularly meets up with him for coffee and a catch up. This good-looking, successful business woman is single and John is very close to her. As they sit chatting and catching up, someone steals Gabby's phone. I thoroughly enjoyed this story, and its twist ending. The Fifth Story, In Your Dreams, Man!, is about the author's waking world and how he gets so disappointed with it. He writes about being a slave to rules in his job and how he prefers his dream world. He reminisces about the great times he had when his father took him up into the Himalayas and how magic it was. Then he writes about what he likes doing when he's not dreaming about happy things. Now this part I can relate to. He says he loves his laptop and writing about far more interesting worlds by creating stories that just tumble out of his brain. He also tells how he can handle the world as long as he has ? If you want to know what it is that he needs to keep him happy, you'll have to read this story! I loved it! The Sixth Story: Life Is Such a Fragile Thing. In this story, the author talks about how fragile life is and how we should spend less time being bad and more time being good to one another. He then writes about when he worked at an exclusive Girl's School and how something happened to the girls on his watch. This story had me chewing my fingers to the very end. The Seventh Story: Love Works Best On A Desert Island. In this story the author talks about Love at First Sight, and how he was smitten by a woman at a party. I won't tell you if they get together or not, but later he goes on to say how in this world there are now too many distractions for even the most solid relationship to work. He gets very deep here but to read what his thoughts are on true love you will have to read this story. The Eighth Story: My Weird Job Interview is about a very difficult job interview that John Smith had. This made me chuckle at the author's quirky personality, and I laughed out loud at the ending. The Ninth Story: Of Such Things Are Made Heroes. This story is how some heroes can be just ordinary people. In fact the hero in this tale seems to be a born loser. He's unreliable, lazy, can't hold down a job, and scared of his own shadow. John wonders why he befriended him at all. That is until he does something quite out of character. I love this one. It pulled at my very heart strings! The Tenth Story: Please Release Me. This is also a theme of true love and I really enjoyed it. It is also advice from the author on how not to try and change people, not if you really love them. The Eleventh Story: Suicide Negotiator. In this story the author writes about a friend who is a Suicide Negotiator and his wife has died. Seeing how messy his friend's home is, John suggests he might need another woman in his life. His friend gets angry, saying no one can ever take his wife's place and he doesn't want to hear that again. They then begin talking about his friend's job and the tricks he uses to save lives. I found this story amazing. I loved it, and this anecdote shows what a lovely, warm human being John M W Smith really is. The Twelfth Story: The Best Place To Be. Here John writes about his favourite place to be to chill out and the memories he has. Now here is a good place to get to know John because he writes about many of his memories and feelings. The Thirteenth Story: The Gaddafi Effect. This is an amazing true story about Libya. I highly recommend this story but I don't want to give the plot away so you will have to read it to see how well it is written! The Fourteenth Story: The Gandhi Method. In this story, John sits in his car by the airport and watches planes as he reminisces on things that have happened in his life. He finds this more pleasurable than drinking or taking drugs. I guess that is how he gets his endorphins and the memories are a good read! I really loved the story about The Cleaning Lady, and I related to it as I did something similar as a child! The Fifteenth Story: The Naked Assailant. This made me laugh as it is a true story about his grandfather's peculiarity. But I understood this because I think most people have one. I certainly do, but mine is nothing like his grandad's. I could see this story as a short movie playing out in my head. A funny one! The Sixteenth Story: The Night Time Spider. Gosh, I could relate to the author in this one as I am terrified of insects. But the ending was a big surprise. Loved it! The Seventeenth Story: The Perils Of Long Distance Love. This is a story how the looks of a woman can change, metamorphosis, when she falls in love. True love! I loved this story too. The Eighteenth Story: The Reluctant Voyager. This is a true story of John M W Smith's and I don't want to mention what it is about or it will give the ending away. But it was a very compelling read! The Nineteenth Story: Tragedy At The Duck Pond. I love ducks and we have them in our dam, so this one tugged hard at my heart strings! The Twentieth Story: True Love. The author writes about the meaning of true love and how the word love is used too often and without meaning these days. He writes of how most relationships are time limited these days and how depressed that makes him. So well written! The Twenty first Story: "Yes, I'm Leaving You..." This is about a friend of John's who suspects his wife is having an affair. He wants John to come with him when he confronts her. Another great read! Strange Times; Wacky Anecdotes by John M W Smith is a superb read! And so many stories! Women will love this book, and so will men. I highly recommend it and gave it 5 Stars. I would give it a lot more if I could!
