Smashwords book reviews by Carole Burnett

  • Stolen Treasure on July 01, 2012

    You feel such empathy for the characters in this book, childhood sweethearts ripped apart but are they destined to meet again...? The book is a warm romantic adventure with a nice mystery to the plot, the reader is drawn in and the twist at the end is very satisfying. An enjoyable read and a pacey story with likeable and believable characters. What more could you want? I recommend it
  • Moving On on July 01, 2012

    This book is a lovely contemporary romance. The characters are real and believable and the reader becomes involved in their lives and troubles. It's the sort of story that would be ideal for curling up with some wine and a cosy night in or basking in the sun in the garden. A real feel good event. I am not surprised that this book was short listed for the Love Story of the Year at all. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a romantic tale.
  • Abigail Moor on April 11, 2014

    This book interested me greatly, I love the area it is set in (Whitby, York) and the author has evoked the period details very nicely. It has an interesting plot and you see Abigail mature into a more independent and adult heroine. The plot is a balance between the romance and the adventure and the reader is easily involved in the relationship that develops between Abigail and Joshua. I would happily recommend the book.
  • Roses are Dead on Jan. 31, 2015

    Quite a change for this author. I've read a number of her books but this is a contemporary thriller. A teacher is being stalked,but by whom? There is a mysterious ex boyfriend and a friend with a suspicious partner, a knowledgeable neighbour and a new tenant in the flats. But who is the guilty party? Valerie moves the plot at a good pace and leaves the reader guessing until the end. Worth reading!
