Smashwords book reviews by J. Bankert

  • Three Wishes on Dec. 15, 2013

    Wishes do come true. A wonderful Christmas story.
  • The Nutcracker on Dec. 21, 2013

    Not a genre I usually read, but the story premise piqued my curiosity. This is a sweet, funny Christmas story that might bring a tear or two to your eye. A good read deserving of your time.
  • The Makeover on Jan. 06, 2014

    Well, I'm just a weepy mess now. Very short, but very touching. Take the time to read this. It's wonderful, really
  • The Bureau of Holiday Affairs on Dec. 11, 2015

    I'm a sucker for all things 'A Christmas Carol' and Marquette's "The Bureau of Holiday Affairs" is an absolutely delightful retelling of Dickens's Christmas classic. The highest complement I can give it is that I didn't want it end. Don't miss this Christmas romance. It's just wonderful.
  • The One Exception on Dec. 15, 2015

    Nice little story, even with chapters 5 & 6. Enjoyed it, would not mind seeing a sequel to keep us up to date with Laura and Elle.
  • The Persephone Star on Jan. 13, 2016

    Loved the setting of this story. Steampunk western always gets a win in my book. My only complaint is that the ending felt rushed. I appreciate when an author takes the time to put a denouement that does more than pay scant lip service to wrapping up the dangling plot bits. That's not the case here, but other wise this was an enjoyable story that most should like, especially if they appreciate the offered setting.
  • Santa's Daughter on Sep. 09, 2016

    I'd like to give this book more stars, but I can't. Despite the fact that there's a fun, imaginative story here, the book itself is rife with spelling and grammatical errors and is in desperate need of an editor. I'd overlook these things if the book were free or $0.99, but at the $4.99 list price I expect a product that is of a significantly better quality. If you're the sort of reader that can overlook this sort of thing, jump in. I think you'll enjoy the book. Otherwise I can't recommend that you spend your money on this book. Apologies to the author for saying that.
