Smashwords book reviews by Evelyn Durston

  • Little Miss Straight Lace, Book One of the Unbreakable Series (Free Romantic Suspense) on Nov. 23, 2010

    This book reminded me of an old Judith Krantz or Fern Michaels saga, where the heroine is caught up in a misery or mystery of someone else's making, and has to claw her way out of it, using only her wit and skills...with maybe a little help from a handsome hero. What I liked best about it was the attention to detail. I really got to know the characters and their world, and genuinely cared about them and their experiences. Even the bad guys were well drawn, eliciting a certain amount of sympathy instead of just being flat, purely evil characters. I will warn you that this is a long, complicated story. It's not something you're going to finish on a cross-country flight or even in a weekend. It has lots of characters, lots of layers, and lots of events taking place over a period of several months. If you're looking for a short, sweet romance or a bit of chicklit fluff, this is not the book for you. Fortunately for me, long, complicated stories that pull me in and won't let me go are exactly what I like!
