Smashwords book reviews by Helgi Magnusson

  • Undercover In High Heels on April 04, 2011

    This is the third book in the series and I must say that Gemma still manages to keep the characters pretty fresh and interesting.
  • Killer In High Heels on April 04, 2011

    The second book in the series, it's still fresh and very funny. The main character and her dad, who left her mother for a stripper named Lola are memorable along with her poor suffering (sometimes) boyfriend and her aerobic instructor friend. The weak point in this murder series book is the murder investigation. I still give it four stars.
  • Executive Sick Days on April 24, 2011

    Maria Schneider is one of the independent authors that make the others look good. Her books have been proofread and they are very reasonably priced. Her books are all good with interesting characters, lots of action, nice dialog and funny circumstances. This book, the third about the former IT girl O┬┤Hala, is among her best and I recommend it to everyone interested in crime/comedy/romance stories.
  • Bubba and the Dead Woman on Sep. 10, 2011

    I tend to agree with the other reviews, this book is really funny. But also, the characters are likable and realistic. The quality; spelling, grammar, fit and finish is first rate. This is the first book I've read by this author but now I'm getting her whole catalog.
  • Dial 'M' for Mascara on Oct. 18, 2011

    Great book, the first chapter alone is worth the price. The second is just as good. And there are lots of chapters. Layout and finish is high quality. C. L. is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.
  • The Flight of the Scarlet Tanager on Nov. 01, 2011

    I bought this book after reading Bubba and the dead woman by the same author. This is nothing like Bubba (which is categorized as comedy and is a really funny book) but in it's own way this one is even better. C.L. writes just as well when she's writing thrillers and is now one of my favorite authors.
  • Bubba and the Missing Woman on Jan. 01, 2012

    This, the third Bubba book is just as good as the other two. Instad of stumbling over a dead body Bubba is now searching for a hopfully live on. With a little help from his mother, stungun wielding nephew, Willodeans young niece and other misfits he races against time to find the women he likes a lot. Grammar and spelling is first rate, like I've come to expect from C.L.
  • Arcanorum: A Lake People Novel on July 31, 2012

    I really like Bevills books, Bubba and the dead woman and Billy Bayou are some of my favourites. This one has too much suspense for my taste. I would have given it 3.5 stars but that's not possible so 3 it is.
  • Brownie and the Dame on July 31, 2012

    I like C.L. Bevill. I like almost all of her books, like Bubba and the dead woman and Bayou Billy, but I'm having trouble liking this one as much. It's a nice novella about couple of kids but what is the market audience. It uses too complicated words for kids, although the length fits well. Also, the kids in the story sometimes behave much more like adults than kids. Teenagers don't like to read about kids. The storyline has too many holes for grown ups. It's still a good story, and fun to read, but I recommend starting with other books from C.L. For example the first story in the series; Bubba and the dead woman.
  • Unexpected Rendezvous on April 27, 2013

    Not as entertaining as I'd hoped. The story is too slow and too much talk about emotions and going to church. But then I didn't finish reading it, I gave up reading and deleted it from my Kindle about halfway through. I still give it couple of stars because spelling and grammar is good.
  • Crimson Bayou on April 27, 2013

    Yet another pretty good book from Caren Bevill. I thought I had read all her books but this is a sequel to one I had not read. It still stands on it's own and you don't have to read the prequel to enjoy it. Spelling and grammar is really good, like in all of Carens books. She is a good example of Independent (Indie) author.
