Smashwords book reviews by Narlen & Eveline Evans

  • A Bride for Tom on May 17, 2012

    This was my first video book read. I was surprised at how quickly I forgot I wasn't turning a paper page as your love story held my interest. You have a way with words. Great book.
  • Christmas' Best Bet, Humble Pie a novella on June 11, 2012
    (no rating)
    Quite an interesting story. Has a lot of grammar errors and missing words, but it was interesting enough it keep me going until the finish.
  • Sheriff Gregg & The Painted Lady on June 11, 2012
    (no rating)
    his boots up on the wooden balcony? Don't you mean porch railing? Could be a good story but the poor formatting lost me before I found out. Also the fake country dialogue was off putting.
  • Brenin on July 06, 2012

    Bre was on her up to what I chose to do you and your blatant Wonderful story. Enjoyed it greatly. Just thought I'd point out two small errors I found.
  • Change of Heart on July 08, 2012

    Well written and very enjoyable.
  • The Ramblers on July 09, 2012

    Too simple for my taste. Needs more description of the walking trail, etc.
  • Chief Cook and Bottle Washer on July 16, 2012

    Very enjoyable book.
  • The Luck of the Irish (In Love) on July 25, 2012

    Charming little story that I enjoyed very much.
  • Home Country on July 26, 2012

    Well written and very enjoyable. Would like to read more about this young couple.
  • Rocket Man on Aug. 03, 2012

    Held my interest. Enjoyed reading it.
  • The Last Bride in Ballymuir on Sep. 11, 2012

    Although the writing was too graphic for my taste, I skipped those parts and still had a wonderful read. Kept me turning pages to the very end. Well Done.
  • I Don't Need To Read on Sep. 14, 2012

    I particularly enjoyed the artwork. Very cute. The story was also cute and one I know my grandchildren would enjoy. However the formatting of the text isn't pretty. It runs together and doesn't break right.
  • The MacLosers on Oct. 01, 2012

    Lost interest after the first chapter.The story line sounded promising but it was all narrative.
  • A Gift For Joey on Oct. 23, 2012

    Good short story. Didn't really like the last paragraph...
  • Hope on a Paige (Tales from the Dead Letter Office) on Nov. 12, 2012

    Interesting story it had me hooked from the start. I don't know if I'm disappointed or relieved that their is an "open" ending. Depending on your outlook you can choose how you want the story to end. Being a romantic, I think they ended up "happily ever after" together.
  • Millie's Christmas on Nov. 21, 2012

    Well written with believable characters. What a wonderful world it would be if all our neighbors were like Millie's.
  • A Brother's Duty on Dec. 05, 2012

    Great book. Held my interest the whole way. Well written.
  • The Christmas Waltz on Dec. 17, 2012

    Well written and interesting. Saw only a couple minor grammar errors. Great story for Christmas!
  • Kate on March 25, 2013

    While the story was interesting the book need an editor who can correct the numerous mistakes. Also the transition from one situation to the next was very abrupt and at times confusing.
  • The Job Offer on April 08, 2013

    I like a romance but not sexually graphic material. I think the tags out to have stated it was 'sexually graphic'.
  • Images - A Love Story on Aug. 21, 2013

    Held my interest. A shame it was just a short story, I think it would be a book that lots of people would enjoy.
  • Define Trying... on Aug. 22, 2013

    Enjoyed revisiting high school. Glad my generation didn't have "modern technology" to muck it up worse then it was. Good read, held my interest, and as John Belliveau said it needs an editor to fix the errors.
  • Leavesly on Sep. 20, 2013

    I read this book in two days. I really enjoyed reading it, turning each page eagerly to see what was going to happen next. Being self published it has some minor editorial errors, but not enough to distract for the story.
  • Return Home on Dec. 06, 2013

    It has the makings of a good book. Lots corrections needed to grammar and spelling. I can only suggest that the author read it out loud to herself so she will catch the mistakes, or have someone edit it for her. Needs more character development and scene description to round out the story.
  • The Promise on Jan. 02, 2014
    (no rating)
    The story sounded interested but sorry to say I didn't make it past the first couple pages. The style in which it is written is just not my "cup of tea".
  • Mystery on Maple Hill on Jan. 02, 2014
    (no rating)
    I enjoyed your story. I only have one problem with it. Since when are beavers trapped during the summer. Their pelts would have no value at that time of year.
  • Living it Up in Fiddly Falls (A Short Story) on Feb. 13, 2014

    Charming short story. I enjoyed it greatly!
  • The Slow Lane: A Short Story From Meet Cute on March 11, 2014

    You tricked me. I just knew she was going to call Shawn.
  • Looking for Love on March 12, 2014

    Well written. Great characters. Feel sorry for John, but happy for Charlie!
  • Unconditional on April 10, 2014

    Well written with interesting/believable characters.
  • Mountain Angel on April 21, 2014

    Great read. Held my interest to the very end.
  • Tamer, A Short Story on May 16, 2014

    What an awful story... well written and reviting but not the kind of story I enjoy reading.
  • Christian Romance: Giving the Best of Me... A Beautiful Christian Romance Story on June 03, 2016
    (no rating)
    This has great potential. Instead of a short story it could be a book in its own right. It just needs flushing out. It also needs editing. I saw many errors. Thanks for an enjoyable half hour of reading.
  • Miss Lydia Fairbanks and the Losers Club on June 03, 2016

    Terrific story. Great ending. Read it in one day!
  • Victoria's Family on July 20, 2016

    While the book is very good it has room for improvement to make it more believable. When Victoria is buying her ticket, there would be many stops between Meadows, Mo and Mobile, Al. Therefore she would need to tell the ticket agent that she wanted to go to the “end of the line” would she not? The trip (even today) would take over 29 hours. Should not some mention be made of this fact? There is no direct train from Mobile Al to anyplace in Montana. They would have to have changed trains with a layover somewhere (Probably TN). Again the time to get to TN would be 20 hours and from there to Montana another 54. (Again this is Amtrak time so no telling how long the 1902 train would have taken). The sheep ranch (not farm) would be outside of town so they would have to have been picked up by someone in a carriage. Dropping off the baby with her mother…. Victoria is someplace in the North on a river boat and she leaves the baby with the Captain! Not workable. She said her mother’s boarding house was west of Mobile which would probably put it in Mississippi. But the end of the Mississippi River is New Orleans, LA. Even the most accommodating boat captain would not travel very far with an infant. There are other errors like ease dropping should be eavesdropping. Twice there is quite when it should be quiet. Repeatedly residence is used when residents is meant. But the story like is terrific. Congratulations on publishing your first Smashwords book.
  • Hearts Unfold--Miracle at Valley Rise Book 1 on Sep. 14, 2016

    Terrific book. Read it in just two days! Great believable characters.
