Smashwords book reviews by Janet Lane

  • This Time Justice on Oct. 15, 2015

    Why five stars? 1. Because this is one of the most heart-stopping, memorable first scenes I've read, and because the author is able to sustain that tension throughout the book. 2. Because I admired the protagonists - wanted to possess Gilliam's courage and compassion, and the detective, Sam, is smart, capable, and attractive. 3. Because the novel is gritty, sexy, unpredictable and interesting from first page to last. Liz Roadifer is an author to bookmark. Looking forward to her next release.
