Smashwords book reviews by Dorothy May Mercer

  • The Concrete Kiss on Oct. 16, 2012

    This is the first book I have read by David Grace. I read a lot of books by new authors. Not all are good. This one was the exception. If you enjoy a good cop thriller, you will like this book. It has mystery, suspense, serial killers, beautiful young women as victims, plenty of twists and surprises, and a cop that won't quit until he gets his man. The autistic young woman, as heroine, who is rarely verbal, but communicates on her computer is a nice addition, giving us a rare glimpse into the thought process of an autistic person.

  • Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors on Jan. 30, 2014

    Roger Ellerton's "Self-Publishing Your Book: A Guide for First-Time and DIY Authors" is definately a "must-have" for self-publishers and authors into marketing their own books. For only 99 cents, it is a "steal," packed full of useful tips and guidance. Regardless of where you are in the process, you will find something of use. It is a quick read, but, also, a good reference work to keep around. In clearly artiuclated language, Roger give guidance in many areas of publishing and marketing, as well as numerous helpful links to other web sites. As a long-time writer and publisher of fifteen novels and numerous articles on self-publishing,, I still learned many things from this guide,including enough new marketing ideas to keep me busy for a year. Thank you, Roger, for your help. Dorothy May Mercer, Author and Publisher MercerPublications(dot)com
  • Stalking Red on March 08, 2014

    What could be better than a great romance? A great romance/adventure, that’s what. And what could be better than a great romance/adventure? One that takes place in the last frontier. Cherime MacFarlane writes from her intimate knowledge of Alaska, from the thriving city of Anchorage to remote wild places, via 4 wheel drive pickup truck, snowshoe and snowmachine, MacFarlane takes us from isolated scenic overlook to a romantic wilderness camping trip. We are allowed to eavesdrop on Native culture where everyone is related distantly and the only way to avoid 800 guests at your wedding is to make it quick, before word gets around. Throw in a mean ex-con hiding in a remote cabin, out to prey on elderly natives, intimidate innocent girls, and raid native bank accounts, a family that sticks together, where men are men who take care of their own, and a threat of frontier justice looms.
  • Tempting Desire on March 18, 2016

    In her novel Tempting Desire, Stella Ajanaku delivers exactly what she promises- a flirty and feisty heroine. Onome is a beautiful career woman of age thirty-four, originally from Nigeria, now living in the UK and well known in London for her successful TV talk show. She bumps into Roman, a handsome stranger on the crowded commuter train, whom she runs into again later. She likes to flirt but has no intention of ever involving herself for more than one or two dates with any one man. She is feisty with him and he hands it right back. Onome’s best friend and confident, Deb is the perfect listener and advisor in matters of the heart, serving as Onome’s conscience in many scenes, as Onome pours out her anger and frustration over Roman. Onome has issues with him, which are not always what you might think. Recommended for lovers of romance novels that go into the details of daily relationships featuring smart-mouthed heroines and strong, buff, and well-heeled men, their pals, family and various associates.
