Smashwords book reviews by Jeannie Meekins

  • Ice Scream on April 26, 2014

    An intriguing story that holds together all the way through. It has horror, with an element of mystery and personal growth. My kids really liked the fact that, as annoying as Marty could be, Andy will still do anything it takes to protect his little brother.
  • Allsorts on May 18, 2014

    An entertaining collection. A dash of imagination coupled with a dash of reality. There are some rich descriptive details that give a feel of atmosphere. I particularly liked the reverse assumptions, such as if there is a footprint in the sand, it must be Friday.
  • Sha'hallaan's Truth on June 02, 2014

    This is a very personal and emotionally individual book. What you get out of it will reflect on who and what you are. The four star ranking is not meant as a personal recommendation or endorsement. It's there to encourage everyone to have a look at this book and judge it on its merits and value to you. It's free, so you've got nothing to lose.
  • Ravenswynd Legends on March 04, 2016

    Quite enjoyed this. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it is what it says: paranormal romance. It's easy to read, there is some good character development and some lovely descriptions. When I got to Melinda "laid out like a buffet", I thought she was going to be dinner!
  • Under the Big Top on May 16, 2017

    This story is quite dark and is more suited to the top end of its age group - around 11-12 year olds. It's well written, holds interest throughout and has lots of gruesome bits. Not just for the kids, I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
