Smashwords book reviews by Dlh

  • Living and Dying in the Hamptons on Feb. 04, 2013

    Loved this book. I couldn't wait to read Book Two, Murder and Mischief in the Hamptons.
  • Hollywood Secrets on March 24, 2013

    I enjoy all of Gemma Halliday's books. They are an easy read for anyone that loves romance/mysteries.
  • Hollywood Confessions on March 24, 2013

    You can't go wrong reading a Gemma Halliday book. It is romance, mystery and humor all in one.
  • Deadly Obsession (Deadly Vices, Book 1) on March 25, 2013

    This was a good, free ebook even though it was predictable. In the very beginning, you already know who the stalker is but the author does try to hide it. Also, some details were not believable such as no one finding a dead body in a hotel room for days. I guess no one had to pay for the room, the hotel didn't have maids and had wonderful room deodorizers. I do recommend the book because it had romance, suspense and a feel good ending. I will also be looking for other books by this author.
  • Rope Enough - The Romney and Marsh Files #1 on April 13, 2013

    Enjoyed this book and the next two in the series. They are stand alone books, each with their own twists and turns to keep you wanting to read more.
  • Finders Keepers Losers Die on April 22, 2013

    I couldn't help but compare this book to Janet Evanovich's Plum series but one star lower. The main character, Cat, is a secretary that wants to be an investigator and continuously gets herself into dangerous situations. The story also has two competitive, hot guys that both want Cat. One guy is a cop and the other is a fellow investigator. Sound familiar? Similarities aside, it was a good book and will look for more written by this author.
  • The Throwbacks on May 08, 2013

    Very drawn out and boring.
  • Flashdrive on July 01, 2013

    To really appreciate this book, I think you need to like this region of the country. Being from the city, it wasn't for me. The story was okay but I couldn't relate.
  • Club Blood on July 01, 2013

    I don't normally read short stories and this book was probably an example of why I don't. There is no depth to the story and Kerry is annoying. Add to that, the font changes throughout the ebook. Also, considering there are only 85 pages to the book, the author managed to throw in the racist statement that the pizza must be good as the restaurant was owned by Italians. Only 28,906 words and this statement was necessary?
  • Tall, Dark & Lonely: A Pyte/Sentinel Series Novel on July 04, 2013

    It is always nice to accidently stumble upon a great book especially when it is free. I almost didn't give this book a second glance because of the title and cover. So glad I did. It is a paranormal/romance book but unlike others, it leans more toward romance and family. Even the secondary characters are so likeable, I am looking forward to reading more in the series to find out their story.
  • Put It In First on July 30, 2013

    Cute, easy to read story. Doesn't use up a lot of brain cells to get through it. If you are looking for something quick and light, this book is it.
  • Don't Call Me Baby on Aug. 07, 2013

    I love when I find a book I really enjoy and that was free. The author does a great job combining romance, mystery and the life of Lola, who is socially awkward and still living at home. All this in an easy to read book with a surprise ending. Even more impressive, this is the first published book by Betty Byers. Normally first books (especially free ones) are laden with editing errors. This is most definitely not the case. If there were any, they were inconsequential. Looking forward to reading more.
  • Mated & Blooded, A Blood Ties Novel, Book 1 on Aug. 12, 2013

    I didn't realize this is more of a YA book, which I normally don't read. However, the concept intrigued me so I thought to give it a try. The idea behind the story was good but it was not executed very well. Throughout the book, it switches back and forth between the characters point of view (pov). Conversations and events get repeated and the story didn't flow. There were also numerous inconsistencies. Once a mate dies, the remaining mate dies also. Yet, there are events in the book where this should have occurred and didn't. Also, according to the book, the alpha wolf can command any wolf in his pack and they lose free will and must obey. If this is the case, Logan is Lucas' father and the alpha of the pack. Therefore, it would stand to reason that as alpha he could just command Lucas to stay away from Kalli. This may appeal to the young adult but for the mature reader it is just an okay read.
  • Franco's Fortune (Redemption Book 2) on Sep. 02, 2013

    Good story. Franco could have manned up a little more but enjoyable read.
  • Don't Shed A Tear on Sep. 30, 2013

    Another great read by Betty Byers. I loved her first book, Don't Call Me Baby, and this follow-up is even better. There is another mystery to be solved, but the underlying story of Lola just trying to make the right choices with her life is what draws the reader into the book. She is like everyone else making mistakes along the way. But because of her job, her mistakes could get her killed. If I didn't love my ereader so much, I might have thrown it because of the twist at the end of the book. But then I wouldn't be able to read the next Betty Byers book, which in my opinion can't be written quickly enough.
